Nadal got really lucky with Edmund. Zverev in 3, he will teach Nadal a lesson how to play aggressive tennis.

Do not open a thread if you cannot add a poll for whatever reason

Hoping Sascha but it will be Nadal in two tight sets.

Re: WWW MC R3: [4] Nadal vs A. Zverev

Zverev may get this in 3. He's eager to get a win here against Rafa since he lost that AO match. Rafa was not impressive today.

Re: WWW MC R3: [4] Nadal vs A. Zverev

I hope to be proven wrong but I also think Nadal will win this maybe in 3, Zverev is just too basic lately

Re: WWW MC R3: [4] Nadal vs A. Zverev

Mental issues aside, if Zverev is solid from the baseline and serves well, I believe he's got this in the bag. Specially if today's 2nd and 3rd set Rafa shows up.

Re: WWW MC R3: [4] Nadal vs A. Zverev

Zverev matches up great against Nadal, both on paper and in practise. That said, Alex hasn't impressed me too much lately. If he can impose a more aggressive gameplan then he should have a 50/50 shot.

Re: WWW MC R3: [4] Nadal vs A. Zverev

I think Rafa of the first set against Edmund is good enough to beat Zverev. Hopefully he can maintain it, but I have my doubts. Zverev is a better player than Edmund and is also clutch. I think Alex takes it in 3.

Zverev is not beating RAFA. The next guy to beat RAFA is Dustbin and both will be already wearing white.

Have some faith in our RAFA, brother

HC at AO allowed Zverev to ballbash and the courts helped him to. Zverev isn't mentally strong enough to play proper clay court tennis IMO which requires point construction and good defense. RAFA isn't the same but Zverev will be nervous as well facing the best ever on the surface so early.

Zverev can defend well too. Rafa will have a hard time hitting winners against him, especially with no FHDTL. Hopefully he can return well and don't give him any free points. That could make a big difference.
