Rafael Nadal will play against Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Nitto ATP Finals and we got Sure win tennis prediction today. The game is on Friday, 15 November and will not start before 14:00 UK.
Rafael Nadal world number 1 started the Finals in London with a loss from Alexander Zverev 2-6, 4-6 and the Spanish got a must-win match against Daniil Medvedev. Rafa lost the 1st set against Daniil after tiebreak but then won the 2nd set 6-3. In the 3rd set the Russian lead with 5-1 sets but lost that set after a tiebreak. Now Nadal got another must-win game against Tsitsipas who will play in the ½ finals in London. Rafa retired in his last tournament on the Masters 1000 in Paris because of an injury but in an interview world number 1 said that he got no pain and if he loses his injury will be not the reason. The only other two tournaments on hard in which Nadal played were in the US Open where he won the title and in Montreal where Rafa also won the trophy.
Stefanos Tsitsipas world number 6 will play in the ½ finals in London. In his first match in the Nitto ATP Finals the Greek beat for the first time in his career Daniil Medvedev 2:0 sets and two days later he also beat Alexander Zverev 2:0 sets. With these two victories no matter how his match against Rafa ended will not be a problem for him to advance. Stefanos’ latest tournament was the Masters in Paris where he was eliminated in the ¼ finals from Novak Djokovic who then won the Masters.
Nadal and Tsitsipas played 5 times and the Spanish leads with 4 victories and only 1 loss. Their last match on hard was this year in Melbourne where in the ½ final Rafa beat him 6-2, 6-4, 6-0. In the upcoming match, I expect another win for Nadal who must win that match. Sure win tennis prediction today: Rafael Nadal to win
