Felix Auger-Aliassime v Rafael Nadal live stream | French Open 2022 preview

Felix Auger-Aliassime and Rafael Nadal will square off in the Round of 16 of the French Open 2022 on Sunday at 2.00pm (UK Time).

Felix Auger-Aliassime has won 10 of his last 15 matches on clay courts, but unfortunately, he wasn’t able to lift any trophies during this run. His best performances during this term were quarterfinals appearances in Barcelona, Madrid, Estoril and Rome.

The Canadian No. 1 had to fight back from two sets down in his opening round at the French Open 2022 to defeat Varillas in five sets. He then comfortably won against Ugo Carabelli in the second round, but was really tested by Krajinovic in the previous round.

Felix had to play three close sets, including two tie-breakers to defeat Krajinovic and to earn his spot in the Round of 16.

As we’ve already mentioned in our previous previews, Rafael Nadal hasn’t been at his best prior to the French Open 2022. However, the 13-time French Open champion is yet to be tested on Parisian courts so far this year as he comfortably won all three matches in straight sets. In addition, the Spaniard had dropped just 23 games in these three matches.

Rafa needs to be at his absolute best in order to defeat Felix Auger-Aliassime on Sunday. The good news is that Nadal has dropped just one set in his previous six matches against top 20 players in the round of 16 in Paris.

We expect a tight contest so our prediction is Over 3.5 Sets at odds of 1/1 with Bet365.

Auger-Aliassime v Nadal is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 14.00 pm BST.

Daniil Medvedev and Felix Auger-Aliassime will face each other for the third time in just five months on Wednesday in the Quarter-Finals of the 2022 Australian Open.

Second seed Medvedev is into the Quarter-Finals of the Australian Open for the second consecutive year. After some comfortable wins in the first three rounds, the Russian showed signs of weakness in the Last 16 when he met an in-form Maxime Cressy.

The US Open champion needed four sets to defeat the Frenchman, but two of these ended in tiebreakers.

Auger-Aliassime did well to win seven of her nine matches in this early part of 2022. The Canadian is currently on a five-match winning streak, including a comfortable 3-1 victory over Cilic in the previous round of this year’s Australian Open.

This is the 21-year-old’s best result in Melbourne in four attempts, but he needs to find a way to get past Medvedev in order to reach the Semi-Finals.

Auger-Alisssime has lost the previous three meetings with Medvedev and has won just one set in the process.

We fancy title favourite Medvedev to win 3-0 at odds of 5/6 with Bet365.

Medvedev v Auger-Aliassime is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 8.30am GMT.

Ninth-seed Felix Auger-Aliassime will take on the Brit Dan Evans on Saturday at 06.00am (UK Time) in the third round of the Australian Open 2022.

Daniel Evans has looked fantastic in this early stage of 2022, having won seven of his eight matches on hard courts. During this run, Evans did well to reach the Semi-finals in Sydney where he lost in three sets against Karatsev.

Last season, Evans managed to win the Murray River Open tournament in Melbourne before the Australian Open 2021, but then lost in the first round against Cameron Norrie.

Meanwhile, Felix Auger-Aliassime did well to reach the round of 16 of the Australian Open last year and he is now in with a great chance of levelling that performance. However, the Frenchman hasn’t been very convincing in the first two rounds in Melbourne, having dropped three sets so far – two against Ruusuvuori and one at the hands of Davidovich Fokina.

Felix is definitely a player to watch as he is very talented and it looks like he has done everything right in his young career. However, he is yet to win a tour-level title and this might put some pressure on him.

Over 3.5 sets at odds of 1/2 seem to be the best bet for this matchup.

Evans v Auger-Aliassime is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 06.00am GMT.

After his five-set heroics, can Andy Murray keep his US Open campaign alive as he faces fifteenth seed Felix Auger-Aliassime?

Murray vs Auger-Aliassime is live from New York on Thursday 3 September, 8.30pm local/1.30am BST

In his first Grand Slam match since facing Roberto Bautista Agut at the 2019 Australian Open, Andy Murray battled his way back from the brink of defeat despite never being able to find his best tennis, beating Yoshihito Nishioka 4-6, 4-6, 7-6(5), 7-6(4), 6-4 in a marathon four hours and 49 minutes to reach the second round of the US Open.

After such a physically and emotionally draining match, one which left him needing access to the emergency ice bath and injections to drain blood from under his toenails, what will Murray have left with which to take on 20-year-old, 21-ranked Felix Auger-Aliassime on Thursday?

Murray vs Auger-Aliassime: Head-to-head

Andy Murray and Felix Auger-Aliassime have never played.

Murray vs Auger-Aliassime: Preview

One of three former US Open champions in this year’s men’s singles draw, Murray was not the only one to go to five sets in the first round, but his match against Nishioka was unquestionably the biggest story of the first two days at this unusual Grand Slam.

It was almost as emotional as his last match at a Grand Slam, which we thought at the time would be his last match ever, when he lost in five sets to Bautista Agut at the Australian Open in 2019 after confessing that he thought his career might be over.

Hip resurfacing surgery kept that career alive, although for how long, and what it might look like exactly going forward, is unclear. Pain caused by the surgery led to bruising and inflammation which kept Murray out of competition from November last year until after the ATP Tour had been suspended for six months, and although he won his first two matches of the year against Frances Tiafoe and Alexander Zverev in ‘Cincinnati’, Murray’s poor performance against Milos Raonic in the quarterfinals showed how far he was from anything like his best tennis.

The first two sets of Murray’s match against Nishioka were worse. In fact, it was the worst Murray performance at a Grand Slam I can remember, with nothing working for him, his serve misfiring and a general lack of energy and intensity infecting every area of his game, while Nishioka – despite not having played since February – was full of vigour and purpose, dictating play with his left-handed forehand and making Murray’s life a misery at the net.

Murray’s serve and game started to pick up midway through the third set, but by that time he was already down a break and the match should have been done and dusted. Somehow, though, Murray wormed and then clawed his way back in, taking the third set in a tie-break, repeating the feat in the fourth set and then outlasting Nishioka in the most improbable fashion.

As far as I’m concerned, and I did watch the entire thing, nothing but immense experience and an even more immense degree of stubbornness got Murray through a match that he should by all rights have lost. Even with a day to recover, is it really realistic to expect him to have anything in the tank with which to take on Auger-Aliassime?

That’s not even taking into consideration the fact that Auger-Aliassime is no mean player himself. The 20-year-old, seeded 15th, has yet to win an ATP Tour title but he’s reached two finals, including in Marseille and Rotterdam earlier in 2020; he was a Miami Masters semifinalist in 2019 and although he has only once made it to the third round of a Grand Slam, that has a lot to do with some tough draws and his body taking a while to adjust to the demands of best-of-five. Narrowly beaten in a third-set tie-break by Tennys Sandgren in the second round of ‘Cincinnati’ last week, Auger-Aliassime edged past Thiago Monteiro in four sets to reach the second round in New York. He’ll have to be much more proactive and assertive than that against Murray, but even if Murray gets off to a good start, I don’t think he can possibly have the energy reserves to sustain it.
