The second racket of the world began the competition with a confident victory over Andrei Rublev, who passed in the class (6:3, 6:4). For the second fight Nadal also came out in the status of a favorite, but Dominic Thiem was a tough nut to crack. We saw two tie-breaks, during which the 34-year-old tennis player simply could not put the squeeze on his opponent, although there were opportunities (6:7, 6:7).
Now Raphael will have to fight against last year's winner Stefanos Tsitsipas and he is also aiming for a positive result, so we expect to see a real battle.
Tsitsipas showed a good game at the start, but this was not enough, since the victory went to Dominic Thiem (6:7, 6:4, 3:6). After an unfortunate failure, the representative of Greece considered his mistakes and shot in the next fight, where he defeated Andrei Rublev, although he also had to try to stay afloat (6:1, 4:6, 7:6).
Now Stefanos is facing a tough fight against Rafa, which can be compared to the final, because in case of defeat the 22-year-old tennis player packs his bags and goes home.
Rafael Nadal was close to beating Dominic Thiem, although he didn't have enough strength in tie-breaks. Now the situation is such that victory is needed in any case. So, in our opinion, the Spaniard will make every effort to prove that he deserves to play in the semifinals.
Our prediction is the victory of Rafael Nadal, taking into account the handicap (-2) of the game for the odds of 1.62 in BC 1xBet.
