Rafael Nadal holds an unassailable 15-1 H2H lead over Philipp Kohlschreiber. The World #34s only win over the Spaniard came on the grass courts of Halle in 2012, and worryingly, he has failed to win a set against Nadal in six of his previous seven clay court meetings.
Rafael Nadal Prediction
The World #1 Rafael Nadal, who pulled out of the recently concluded Indian Wells and Miami Open, has made himself available to help Spain reach the Davis Cup semifinal for the first time since 2012.
“There have been some tough moments for the last few months but that’s this sport, and that’s part of my career. I am very excited to try to help the team to be in the semifinal.”- Rafael Nadal ahead of the Davis Cup.
Though the Spaniard opted out of the Davis Cup in 2016 and 2017, he has been hugely successful in this event. Apart from losing his DC debut match to Jiri Novak in 2004, he managed to win all his remaining 22 matches (currently on a 22-match winning streak).
Spain could not win a Davis Cup title before 2000, but since then, they have won five of them, and Rafael Nadal was part of the squad in four of those title-winning campaigns, in 2004, 2008, 2009 and 2011.
Rafael Nadal is yet to play a competitive match since losing (retiring) against Marin Cilic in the quarterfinal of the Australian Open 2018. His last Davis Cup match ended in a straight-set victory against Mikael Torpegaard in 2015, 6-4 6-3 6-2.
Philipp Kohlschreiber News
Philipp Kohlschreiber failed to win consecutive matches in any of his opening five tournaments on the season, but he made the quarterfinal at the Indian Wells and even took the first set against the eventual champion Juan Martin Del Potro.
Kohlschreiber was not part of the Germany Davis Cup squad that traveled to Australia in February 2018. Except 2012, he has played at least one Davis Cup match in every season since 2007.
The German’s W/L record in this competition stands at 16/10 (20/13 including doubles) with seven of those singles wins coming on the clay courts.
