Match Predict – Handicap (+4.5) games for Nadal

There is little doubt that Nadal will fight to the end in this match. However, his current playing conditions are far from ideal and he is unlikely to be ready to stop Djokovic right now. However, knowing Nadal and his love for the French Open, I think he will play his best match of 2022.

Total Games – Over 38.5

The last two head-to-head encounters between the two tennis players have been long. We believe that in the upcoming match we should expect the same outcome. Nadal may not be in the best playing conditions right now, but even so, Rafa will fight to the end.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal 

Novak Djokovic:

Djokovic reached the quarter-finals of Roland Garros for the 16th time – a record for the French Open.

Novak continues to show exceptional tennis at the current tournament. Some may argue that this is due to the fact that he has not had any truly dangerous opponents so far. However, that’s a weak argument. 

Djokovic, meanwhile, has had four solid wins, while still not giving up a single set. In terms of quality of play, the Serb is absolutely the best so far.

In the fourth round, Novak defeated Diego Schwartzman (6-1, 6-3, 6-3), who, by the way, can hardly be called an easy opponent. The same could be seen in his matches against Yoshihito Nishioka (6-3, 6-1, 6-0), Alex Molcan (6-2, 6-3. 7-6) and Aljaz Bedene (6-3, 6-3, 6-2).

Djokovic has come out victorious seven times out of his last eight duels with left-handed players. 

He has played 17 games on clay this season and has 14 wins.

Rafael Nadal:

Nadal, meanwhile, was already facing his first problems. In the fourth round, Rafa had a tough match against Felix Auger Aliassime (3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3).

Felix confidently took the first set, after which Nadal came to his senses – he dominated the court in the second and third sets.

However, in the fourth set there was a breakdown again. Everything was decided in the fifth game and, as it turned out, Nadal was perfectly prepared physically – no fatigue during the match, which lasted almost four and a half hours.

On the one hand, a very spectacular win, but a lot of energy was expended.

On his way to quarter-finals, Nadal has defeated Jordan Thompson (6-2, 6-2, 6-2), Corentin Moutet (6-3, 6-1, 6-4), Botic van de Zandschulp (6-3, 6-2, 6-4).

Nadal has four wins in his last five games against higher-ranked opponents.

He has played 9 games on clay this season and has 7 wins.

Safe Bets

Statistically, both Nadal and Djokovic have played less than 9.5 games in the first set in every game this Roland Garros. However, I don’t think anyone is going to lose in the first set by 3 games. We offer to bet on “1st Set Games – Over 9.5” with the odds of 1.72.

Also, there is no doubt that in at least one set we will see a tie-break. We offer to bet on “Tie-Break – Yes” with the odds of 1.62.
