Djokovic vs Nadal / ATP Rome – Those lucky enough to have the ticket are going to spend Sunday afternoon watching the final of ATP Rome between two best ranked players in the world, N. Djokovic and R. Nadal, who defeated in the semi-finals D. Schwartzman and S. Tsitsipas, respectively. This will be their 54th head-to-head where Djokovic is a bit more successful since he won 28 of them.
Djokovic vs Nadal begins 19.05.2019 at 16:00 CET
Djokovic continues in Rome with series of victories that is stretching all the way till beginning of ATP Madrid which World’s no. 1 player won. Accordingly, Nole had very successful but also very exhausting week in which he spent long hours on tennis courts. Rainy weather made the schedule a complicated affair and forced Nole to play high price since he played in Madrid till the very last day.
We remind you that Djokvic faced J.M. Del Potro before Schwartzman whom he defeated after three hours. Situation was similar in the semi-final match with Schwartzman who proved to be far more serious opponent that it seemed at the first glance. Schwartzman played excellently, even better than expected, as his previous results made this year haven’t been particularly noteworthy.
Nadal didn’t allow himself losing another match to Tsitispas in just a couple of days. The King of Clay did his job correctly and played at expected level. Culprit for a bit more uncertain match is the Greek who hadn’t played the semi-final match at level showed in previous matches, not to mention his performances in Madrid where he played far more aggressive and better in general.
Nadal made by one break in each set and that was enough for a relatively easy victory. Tsitsipas wasn’t too dangerous in Nadal service games and that was the biggest difference compared to their match played seven days ago. Statistically, Tsitsipas served better and had seven aces, but the first service alone is not enough to seriously threaten Nadal on this type of surface.
Djokovic vs Nadal PICK
Djokovic and Nadal met the last time in the final of Australian Open this season and then Djokovic fully outclassed Nadal. Of course, situation is a bit different now as the match will be played on clay court. Also, Nadal is more rested than Djokovic and that could be the key moment which is why we have decided to give advantage to the Spaniard in this match.
Pick: Nadal wins
Odds: 1.65 at 10bet (down to 1.65 can be played)
