19:30 – Nadal v Djokovic
Matches between these two are very hard to predict. However the market makers have a good record. In the last 3 seasons they have met 10 times. In 8 of those the pre match favourite won.
Also in Djokovic’s favour is that he won their last 2 meetings and won in straight sets. He has also had 2 walkovers in the tournament so energy level should be fine.
In this tournament Nadal has better stats for just about everything. He has been serving very well, holding serve 97% of the time. He hasn’t played Djokovic yet though.
Djokovic hasn’t lost a set. Nadal lost a set for the first time against Raonic.
This match as their previous encounters have will come down to who has the greater mental strength on the day.
Djokovic in 3 sets.
