Daniel Taro vs. Emilio Nava Head to Head
They have played twice before, with both games taking place this year. The score is 1-1.
Return to tennis for Taro
After taking a short break from his disappointment at the US Open, Taro is back in tennis. The stay in New York was brief as he lost quite early in the first round to Richard Gasquet. He’ll try to do a lot better in San Diego but it’s a tricky draw against a native player in the first round.
They have already played twice this year so they know each other quite well. Taro picked up the first win earlier in the year, but playing all year paid off for Nava who was able to pick up the win in his second game. This one was quite recent and it was a narrow 3 sets win.
Taro’s game is mainly adapted to clay as he plays the majority of his matches on this surface but he generally plays very aggressively. This can sometimes work, but also tends to throw errors quickly. His best is worthy of the top 50 but he rarely hits it. They should trade blows in this one consistently and if the Japanese player shows more consistency he will be in a good position to win the game.

Nava hopes for points
Emilio Nava plays wonderful tennis on American soil and he will try to use this advantage to get an important victory. The American is not yet in the top 150 and he is still forced to face challengers and qualifiers. His life would be much easier if he could change that before the end of the season.
Events like this in San Diego are a great opportunity to do that. The American is 13-11 on hard courts this year and has played well in previous weeks. Two qualifying games here showed he looked good after the US Open and he will definitely have a chance in this one.
Taro is not a player who will scare him as he recently beat him in Winston-Salem. If he brings his characteristic aggressive game, he should be really good. Consistency is an issue, but playing in front of native fans should give him a boost. As strange as it may sound, the match is really on his racket.
Daniel v Nava Prediction and Tip
As I wrote above, the match is on Nava’s racket. Taro will bring a solid level like he usually does but it’s up to the American to take the game.
I think he can do it and I think he could do it. Anyway, the best bet here would be to take the games because I could see this as a competitive game regardless of who wins.
The 2022 San Diego Open will be played from September 19-25. You can get all the tennis betting news with our tennis betting blog here. Also get the rest of the tennis match previews here.
