In the quarterfinals of the 2019 ATP Cincinnati Masters, David Goffin will play against Yoshihito Nishioka from Japan. 

Yoshihito Nishioka played exceptionally well in the previous round as he defeated Alex de Minaur in straight sets. During the win, Nishioka served exceptionally well as the Japanese player won 72% of his service points which allowed him to win all of his service games. Yoshihito Nishioka also won 2 return games to secure a comfortable win. It has been an outstanding tournament for Yoshihito Nishioka as he has already beaten the likes of Kei Nishikori. Considering his form in this tournament, Yoshihito Nishioka will be confident as he enters this match. 

On the other side of the coin, David Goffin played exceptionally well in the previous round as he defeated Adrian Mannarino in straight sets. David Goffin received serve very strongly as the Belgian superstar won 43% of his receiving points which allowed him to break his opponent’s serve on 3 occasions. Goffin complemented his receiving by serving exceptionally well as he won 90% of his service games. Following a strong grass-court season, David Goffin has looked in outstanding form and he will be optimistic about his chances of winning this match. 

Yoshihito Nishioka and David Goffin have played each other twice in the past with both players winning on one occasion. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at the Citi Open where Yoshihito Nishioka won in 3 sets. David Goffin defeated Yoshihito Nishioka in 2016 at the Japan Open. 

Yoshihito Nishioka has played well in this tournament and has impressed by defeating elite players like Kei Nishikori. That being said, I see Nishioka losing this match. David Goffin looks in electrifying form and the Belgian is moving around the court in a manner which makes it extremely tough for most players. David Goffin is the stronger player and I see him being good enough to win this match and secure a spot in the semifinals.
