Match Predict – Handicap (-4.5) games for Nadal
Nadal has to beat Coric with confidence. Still, Borna is far from his optimum playing form. Yes, he did beat Musetti, but that is not an indicator that will give faith in Borna’s abilities. Rafa probably won’t have much trouble here.
Total Games – Under 21.5
Even at his best, Coric has lost to Nadal with a big handicap. In 2017, for example, Borna lost with a score of 1-6, 2-6. It’s unlikely that Borna will be able to put up a solid performance against Nadal.
Preliminary review and pre-match prediction for Borna Coric vs Rafael Nadal
Coric had a poor showing in Montreal last week. In his first match, Borna lost to Marin Cilic (3-6, 2-6).
In Cincinnati, he started much better, defeating Lorenzo Musetti (7-6, 6-3).
Coric had a great tie-break in the first set and took the second game with a score of 6-3.
Interestingly, in the second set, Borna won 100% of the points on both his first and second serves.
After his injury, Coric has only won two consecutive matches at the ATP main level once so far.
Coric has lost his last 4 matches against the players from the top 10.

Nadal, meanwhile, has recovered from another injury and is ready to play again. Open training sessions have confirmed that Rafa is in fine form.
Rafa has had to miss several tournaments, including the Masters in Montreal, due to a torn abdominal muscle sustained in early July at Wimbledon.
Remarkably, if Nadal has lost this season, it has been primarily due to injury. The only exception was a loss to Carlos Alcaraz in the Madrid Masters quarter-finals.
He’s having a phenomenal season, of course. He is the only man capable of winning two Grand Slams at the age of 36.
Nadal has 7 wins in his last 10 Masters’ matches.
