He has done it again as we look forward to Rafael Nadal vs Casper Ruud.

Rafael Nadal will make yet another French Open Final appearance as he steps onto the court on Sunday.

Nadal is the red-hot favourite to lift the Slam title at Roland Garros as he faces up to first-time finalist Casper Ruud.

Ruud makes history by becoming the first Norwegian player to make an appearance in the showpiece match of a Slam. Can he stop the Nadal train, however?

Rafael Nadal Preview – Nadal seeks number 14

Thirteen-time French Open champion Rafa Nadal will look to add to his tally at Roland Garros on Sunday.

After the disappointment of losing in last year’s semi-final to Novak Djokovic, Nadal is back in the showpiece fixture.

His really big effort came in the quarter finals of this year’s run when he turned in a spectacular performance.

Nadal thumped Novak Djokovic 3-1 to gain some revenge.

In the semi-finals, Nadal won the match not in the manner in he would have liked.

After Nadal had taken a tight opening set, his opponent Alexander Zverev picked up an injury in the second set.

Zverev couldn’t play on after rolling his ankle.

So the unfortunate incident has given Nadal a chance to at least stay relatively fresh.

That in itself is a boon as his match with Djokovic had gone on late into the night.

Rafal Nadal is 2/11 odds-on in French Open betting to win on Sunday* (odds recorded 20:23 GMT on June 4th, 2022 at William Hill).

Our betting prediction:
Nadal 6-4 First Set Score

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 20:23 GMT on June 4th, 2022 at William Hill)


Can Nadal be stopped from here? Nadal on the clay in Paris is such a spectacular thing.

During his long career, Nadal has lost three matches at the French Open.

It’s a staggering record.

His record in all Grand Slam Finals is 21-8.

Seven of those eight defeats in the finals of Slams came against either Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer.

He has a perfect 13 from 13 records in French Open Finals.

The King Of Clay is 13/10 to win the title 3-0 in set betting * (odds recorded 20:23 GMT on June 4th, 2022 at William Hill).


Casper Ruud Preview – Does Ruud have the answers?

Casper Ruud has never met Rafael Nadal before, so what will he be able to come up with to stop the Spaniard?

The 23-year-old is in his first Grand Slam Final and it’s a massive occasion.

He’s the first Norwegian to make a Grand Slam Final appearance.

Two years ago he made history by becoming the first Norwegian to win an ATP Tour-level title.

In the match outright for Sunday’s final, Ruud is the 4/1 underdog* (odds recorded 20:23 GMT on June 4th, 2022 at William Hill).

That’s not totally surprising really given who is standing on the opposite side of the net.

But from the bottom half of the draw, which was wide open, Ruud took his chance.

The World Number eight got the better of Marin Cilic in the semi-finals, taking a 3-1 set win.

Ruud has dropped a set in all but one of his French Open matches during this run.

You can’t really afford to let one slip against Nadal and expect to dig out the victory over five sets.

Casper Ruud has contested 11 tour-level Finals at tournaments during his pro career.

None of those were above the ATP 250 level, however.

None were against a Top 10 player, not having faced a world top ten player in a Final during his career.

Ruud will realistically know the size of the task ahead of him.

But he’s had a decent clay swing, with the only loss in his last fourteen matches on the dirt coming against Novak Djokovic in Rome last month.


Rafael Nadal vs Casper Ruud Betting Advice

Is there a tougher assignment in sport than trying to beat Rafael Nadal at the French Open?

His record is just otherworldly at Roland Garros and the first tennis betting tip is the Nadal 3-0 at 13/10* (odds recorded 20:23 GMT on June 4th, 2022 at William Hill).

At 36 years old, the Spaniard will benefit from not having played the full match in the semi-finals.


Key Facts – Rafael Nadal vs Casper Ruud Betting Tip

  • Rafael Nadal has won all 13 previous French Open Final appearances
  • Rafael Nadal has never met Casper Ruud before
  • Casper Ruud is in his first Grand Slam Final


Casper Ruud has taken his chance well to come through an open draw, but not having faced Nadal before, is not likely to have the answers.

With that in mind, the Nadal -6.5 handicap at 10/11 is on the radar as a our second tennis tip* (odds recorded 20:23 GMT on June 4th, 2022 at William Hill).

Ruud has been leaking sets in this campaign, and he is likely to come unstuck against the greatest clay player ever.
