Our Prediction:

Rafael Nadal will win

Matteo Berrettini – Rafael Nadal Match Prediction | 06-09-2019 17:30

Nadals experience, also, will come to his aid, and with the likelihood of a tiring Daniil Medvedev awaiting him in the final, will see this as his last great opportunity to win a fourth US Open title. This is less nailed on than many might think but a few factors should fall in Nadals favour, disregarding his elite ability. Berrettini has played a lot of matches this year, and has spent a far greater amount of time on court than the Spaniard at Flushing Meadows, especially as Rafa missed out the second round altogether.

He is also coming off a physically brutalizing match that ended 7-6 in the fifth set. Open final is something else altogether. Berrettini is one of the few players who wont be bullied by Nadal physically. But look at every dimension of tennisincluding experienceand its hard to think of one thing Berrettini does better. JW:Serve well, slug well, and, above all, contain his nerves for the biggest match of his career. Beating an erratic Gael Monfils in a Wednesday day session is one thing; beating the great Nadal for a spot in the U.S.

The Italian ace has been playing the tennis of his life this season, and hes had to play his absolute best to reach this stage. The twenty-three-year-old then came got the better of Frenchman Gael Monfils in an epic five-set quarter-final that lasted just short of four hours, and by a 3-6 6-3 6-2 3-6 7-6 score line. Berrettini began with a string of four-set victories over Richard Gasquet, Jordan Thompson and Alexei Popyrin, before picking up his only straight-sets win thus far against Andrey Rublev in the fourth round. Meanwhile, Matteo Berrettini is into a maiden grand slam semi-final, and he couldnt have asked for a tougher opponent.

He was playing great the whole event and now [Matteo is] another player that is playing great, Nadal said. Schwartzman erased double break deficits on both occasions but couldnt quite complete the job in either set. However, it was far from routine for the tournament favourite who may well be concerned he almost blew sets from 4-0 and 5-1 up in the first and second respectively. The Spaniard does buy into the wisdom that tough matches are good for him to bring his best tennis though.I really believe that if you want to win tournaments, you need to go through tough opponents like I had against Marin, today against Diego. Nadal won his match in straight sets, defeating the Argentinian Diego Schwartzman 6-4 7-5 6-2. It was a major surprise for Nadal, who has looked unbreakable at times with his new and improved serve.

Plus, we know Nadal does not take any opponent lightly. I guess there's a slight possibility of overlooking his opponent, but there's not the possibility of a Federer or Djokovic match to divert his attention. I kid, but Nadal is such an overwhelming favorite here, he should have no issues as long as he plays his game. DR:Don't get injured in the pre-match warmup?

2019 US Open Matteo Berrettini vs Rafael Nadal Preview & Prediction

Hello everyone! So we think will take the correct score will win all the sets and give us the green , 3-0 very easy not a hard game for nadal so lets pray and hope to give us the green Go go. Welcome back today to the missile of this match we are going after the correct score i think nadal will destroy this game he are olaying very good in this tournment and will going after the final and try to win he have a great chance to win this tournament is very important for him this match !

He moved exceptionally well, and he made Federer work for every point. Eventually, that wore down Federer, who was struggling with an injury sustained earlier that day. Against a hobbled Medvedev, Dimitrov would be wise to take a similar approach: Extend points, don't allow him easy holds and start strong. SK:In the quarterfinals, as Federer struggled physically, Dimitrov made a concerted effort to extend every point.

Here, hes played a lot of tennis (though no five-setters). Hell come to the court mummified in tape, but hell benefit from the extra recovery day. Mostly by dint of his success, he had played more summer hardcourt matches coming into this tournament than the top four seeds combined. Some dont. Jon Wertheim:Some people like that fitness and conditioning play such a prominent role in the modern game. He talked openly about how close he came to quitting in the quarterfinals against Wawrinka. But this match rests largely how Medvedevs body holds up.

DR:I actually think he needs to be careful not to fall into the "I can just outlast him" mentality. Don't simply try to win a battle of attrition. Medvedev doesn't miss often, and Dimitrov will need to employ his greater variety to make inroads here. Go out there with the confidence of the world No. 3, like he was back in 2017, not the world No. Don't be complacent.

SK:That Nadal beat Diego Schwartzman in straight sets belies the close nature of their quarterfinal. In both the first and second sets, Nadal jumped ahead multiple breaks before allowing Schwartzman to get back on serve. Nadal was sloppy at times, missing several routine forehands wide and failing to put away Schwartzman when he had opportunities. A great deal of credit should go to the persistence of Schwartzman, one of the game's best returners.
