Rafael Nadal Preview – Can Nadal pick himself up?

Rafael Nadal easily won his opening match of the 2020 ATP World Tour Finals. He crushed Andrey Rublev in straight sets.

It looked as if that had been a good workout for Nadal, a chance to sharpen up ahead of having to face Dominic Thiem in the second round robin match.

Nadal lost in straight sets to Thiem however, having been the match favourite.

It was a close, brilliant match however that Thiem and Nadal played on Tuesday, with both sets going to tense tie-breakers.

So there’s really nothing wrong with the form of Nadal to suddenly think about abandoning him.

The bookmakers have him as the 4/9 odds-on favourite to collect the match win against Tsitsipas on Thursday.

A win here, it’s worth reminding, will put the victor through to the semi finals of the competition, so the pressure and stakes are high.

Nadal does hold a positive head to head record against the Greek player Tsitsipas.

He will also have seen Tsitptas worked over very hard by Andrey Rublev on Tuesday, Tsitsipas winning a final set tiebreak.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at Bet365

(odds taken 21:24 GMT Wednesday, 18th November)


A good statistic for tennis betting on this match comes from the head to head.

Nadal holds a W5 L1 record against Tsitsipas and this will be the first meeting between them this year.

The last meeting that Nadaland Tsistipas had, interestingly, was in last year’s ATP Finals, Nadal winning in three sets.

A Nadal 2-1 set betting option for this fixture is at 11/4* (odds taken 21:24 GMT Wednesday, 18th November).


Stefanos Tsitsipas Preview – Can Tsitstipas keep his title defence alive?

The title defence for Stefanos Tsitipas at the ATP Finals got off to a disappointing start for the Greek star.

He lost to Alexander Zverev which immediately heaped some pressure on him to respond.

In the second match of the round robin stage, Tsitpatis did indeed respond, but the win that he took over Andrey Rublev was not an easy win.

Tisitipas had been in great form in the first set of that match, taking a 6-1 score to open with.

But then Rublev came back at him hard to level things up.

The match was then settled on a tiebreaker at the end of the third set in a thrilling conclusion.

So that win keeps the Tsitsipas’s chances alive in London and a win of course, puts him through to the next round at the expense of Nadal.

But both matches for Tistitpas have now gone to three sets and that’s the kind of thing that can take its toll a little bit.

Tsitsipas is the 2/1 underdog to pick up the win in this match* (odds taken 21:24 GMT Wednesday, 18th November).
