ATP US Open / Berrettini vs Nadal – Nadal is the only out of main favourites who fully justified expectations here at the US Open. The Spaniard plays very good throughout the entire tournament and he reached the semi-finals after dispatching D. Schwartzman in the previous round. His opponent is young Italian M. Berrettini who defeated G. Monfils in his quarter-final match.
Match Berrettini vs Nadal begins 06.09.2019 at 22:00 CET
Berrettini is together with Dimitrov the most pleasant surprise of the US Open this season. It is fact that the Italian plays the best tennis in his career this season but no one expected that will reach the semi-finals of the US Open. Of course, Berrettini fully deserves the success as he played excellently. This is especially true for the highly uncertain quarter-final match in which he defeated G. Monfils after five exhausting sets.
We can say that we had seen two equal opponents and each of them enjoyed moments when he was dominant. The Italian had three match points in the decisive fifth set but he failed to use them, and the winner was decided in the tie-break when Berrettini had a bit more patience and concentration. Statistics says that Monfils had much better first service but Berrettini compensated with aggressive play style that brought him more directly won points.
Nadal currently occupies the second place in the ATP list but given what has happened at the US Open and number of points he can win by the end of the season the Spaniard could easily return at the top place in the ATP rank likst by the end of the year. Nadal played the semi-finals of the US Open last year and had lost to Del Potro, so he won't lose a single point now, but if he reaches the final and winthe title he could gain a lot.
Nadal hs won three ATP titles this season. He was the best at the Masters in Rome and Montreal and at the Roland Garros. Besides these he played in one more final at the beginning of season at the Australian Open but was completely outplayed by N. Djokovic. Before the US Open Nadal had a very good win/loss ratio of 41-6.

Berrettini and Nadal haven’t met each other before. It is quite clear who is a big favourite to win, not only this match, but also the title. Berrettini has nothing to lose and his biggest problem is that he had a very difficult and exhausting match with Monfils and now he must face Nada, who easily defeated D. Schwartzman. Many facts are on Nadal's side and we believe that the Spaniard could reach the finals without dropping a set.
