The show match from the quarterfinals of this year’s Davis Cup Final will take place between Rafael Nadal and the Argentine Diego Schwartzman, in Friday night’s session.
At the Caja Magica, in Madrid, the Iberian player will have the support of the massive audience, starting as a big favorite in this meeting.
▪️The Iberian player has again had an excellent season so far, obtaining the position of world leader after the Paris-Bercy tournament, where he was forced to retire.
▪️Last week was very close to qualifying in the semifinals of the Champions Tournament, being eliminated despite 2 wins in groups, but the hard defeat in the first match against Zverev cost the Iberian dear.
▪️This week he played extremely solid tennis in front of his supporters, defeating Karen Khachanov and Borna Gojo, without losing any set.
▪️The 26-year-old Argentine player is currently ranked 14th in the ATP rankings, the best position in his career being 11th, obtained in the previous season.
▪️The current season was a consistent one, reaching the final in the tournament in Buenos Aires and at the end of the season in the Vienna room, where he was defeated by his good friend, Dominic Thiem.
▪️The best result of this season was obtained at Los Cabos, where he managed to win the trophy.
▪️This week he won a clear victory against Christian Garin, but he also suffered a defeat against the German Struff, in minimum sets.
▫️The two players have met 8 times so far, the score being 8-0 in favor of Rafael Nadal, the last meeting taking place at the end of the season, at the US Open, where Nadal was 3-0 in the sets.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Rafael Nadal vs Diego Schwartzman
Despite Rafael Nadal’s 8 straight victories against Schwartzman, the matches between the two have always been spectacular, the Argentinian often having flashes in these matches.
The Iberian player starts as a big favorite in this match, with his support from the supporters, but the fact that the pressure is missing from his shoulders, Diego Schwartzman can produce sensational tennis again.
So I expect a very solid match from him, and there will be a balanced match.
