Both players are having excellent seasons. Nadal has won 91% of his matches and Del Potro won 80%.

Only Isner has taken a set from Del Potro in this tournament. That was a tie break set in the quarter final. In the previous rounds had had only been taken to a tie break twice.

Nadal dropped sets in rounds 3 and 4 and Thiem took him to 5 sets in the last round. Khachanov gave him a real scare in the third round and their match gave us two tie breaks and two 7-5 sets.

Stats for the tournament favour Del Potro. This will be a long match and Del Potro has a great chance. Lay the set 1 winner. I would prefer Nadal to take the 1st set as I want a lower lay on him. Nadal has not looked as sharp as he has been earlier in 2018.
