ATP Los Cabos Day 3 Predictions Including Alexander Zverev vs Yoshihito Nishioka

ATP Hamburg finalist Alexander Zverev in action.

Day 3 at ATP Los Cabos will see the debut of the top seeds, including the likes of No. 1 seed Alexander Zverev. It’s a very stacked draw for an ATP 250 event, and it should be a very competitive event all week, with lots of high-quality tennis on display. Day 2 should be packed full of action. As always, we at LWOT have the preview and prediction for all happenings around the grounds of Los Cabos. But who will advance?

ATP Los Cabos Day 3 Predictions

Max Purcell vs Nuno Borges

Head-to-head: Purcell 1-0 Borges

Borges is one of the tour’s rising players, fresh off an excellent run to the last 16 at the Australian Open. He looks primed to reach the top 30 at some point soon. Purcell has also been steadily rising, though, and looks likely to keep climbing up the rankings. It should be an extremely tight match decided by small details.

Prediction: Borges in 3

Thanasi Kokkinakis vs Dan Evans

Head-to-head: Kokkinakis 2-1 Evans

Evans has struggled to win matches at the ATP level for a while, with his ranking being maintained by only a couple of excellent runs, like his title in Washington. Kokkinakis has also struggled to consistently win matches, making this an extremely hard match to pick as it could genuinely go either way. The slight edge goes to the Aussie and his powerful serve.

Alex de Minaur vs Alex Michelsen

Head-to-head: first meeting

On paper, de Minaur is a clear favorite. He has been in very good form, finally reaching the top 10 in the rankings and reaching the final last week in Rotterdam, only losing to Jannik Sinner. However, he’s now playing in another continent and is facing a player who has been on a very steady rise. It won’t be an easy out for the Australian, and he could easily lose if he hasn’t recovered completely for his Rotterdam run.

Prediction: de Minaur in 3

Alexander Zverev vs Yoshihito Nishioka

Head-to-head: Zverev 2-0 Nishioka

Nishioka is definitely a better player than his current ranking suggests, but Zverev has one of the biggest games on tour and is one of the best players in the world. He was incredibly close to reaching the final at the Australian Open and seems to have fully regained his best level after injury affected his 2022 and 2023 seasons. He should be able to make light work of Nishioka at ATP Rio.
