Taylor Fritz v Rafael Nadal live stream | Wimbledon 2022 preview

Second seed Rafael Nadal will face in-form American Taylor Fritz in the Quarter-Finals of Wimbledon 2022 on Wednesday.

Fritz was the player that ended Nadal’s unbeaten start to the year as he beat the Spaniard at Indian Wells back in March.

Fritz has been in excellent shape on grass over the past three weeks and he enters this clash on the back of an eight-match winning streak on this surface.

The American has won the Eastbourne tournament prior to the start of Wimbledon and he is now in the Quarter-Finals of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career.

In addition, Fritz is yet to drop a single set at Wimbledon this fortnight after registering four straight-set victories over Lorenzo Musetti, Alastair Gray, Alex Molcan, and Jason Kubler.

Nadal had a slow start to this Wimbledon campaign as he dropped a set against both Franciso Cerundolo and Ricardas Berankis in the opening two rounds. However, he has improved his level in the next two rounds against Lorenzo Sonego and Botic Van De Zandschulp.

Rafa has won more Grand Slams than anyone else and this is the first time in his career when he has a good chance of completing the hallowed calendar Grand Slam.

The Spaniard holds a perfect record of seven victories and no defeats in the Quarter-Finals at Wimbledon and he has won all his 18 matches in slams this year.

We expect a tough contest, so our best bet is Over 3.5 Sets at odds of 6/10 with Bet365.

Fritz v Nadal is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 3pm BST.

Rafael Nadal continued his incredible dominance at Roland Garros by landing a 14th French Open title at the expense of Casper Ruud on Sunday.

Nadal followed up January’s Australian Open triumph by making it back-to-back Grand Slams to take his overall tally to 22 – two clear of rivals Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.

Two days after his 36th birthday, Nadal affirmed his position as ‘the king of clay’ by maintaining his unbeaten record in French Open finals and crushing Ruud’s hopes of a maiden Grand Slam title.

Nadal dominated the final from the outset, overpowering his young opponent to clinch a straight sets victory in two hours and 18 minutes.

“It’s amazing the things that are happening this year,” said Nadal on court.

“For me personally, it’s very difficult to describe the feelings that I have.

“It’s something that I never believed to be here at 36 – being competitive again, playing on the most important court of my career. It means [an awful] lot to me.

“I don’t know what will happen in the future, but I’m going to keep fighting!”

Nadal settled quickly into the final on his beloved Court Philippe-Chatrier, racing into a 4-1 lead before eventually serving out the first set 6-3.

Ruud, the first Norwegian ever to reach a Grand Slam men’s single final, dug deep in the second set to open up a 3-1 lead, but only for Nadal to break and reel off five consecutive games to double his advantage.

Ruud seemingly failed to recover from that body blow and was a mere spectator for much of a rapid third set as Nadal rattled off a further six unanswered games to ruthlessly clinch the crown.

Nadal becomes the oldest French Open men’s singles champion and surpasses fellow Spaniard Andres Gimeno – who triumphed aged 34 back in 1972.

He has claimed back-to-back major titles for the first time since 2010 and now has the opportunity to challenge for a first seasonal Grand Slam, with Wimbledon and the US Open still to come.

A chronic foot problem threatened to spell the end of Nadal’s glittering career during the back end of last season, while a stress fracture of the rib caused him to miss two months of action shortly after winning the Australian Open.

However, the legendary Spaniard looks set to continue his quest for further silverware in the coming months and continues to defy the sands of time.

Ruud had beaten Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Emil Ruusuvuori, Lorenzo Sonego, Hubert Hurkacz, Holger Rune and Marin Cilic en route to his first major final but was denied glory by his idol, whom he watched from the stands here in 2013.

The 23-year-old will climb to a career-high world number six on Monday and has announced his arrival as a key contender for Grand Slams in the years to come.

Rafael Nadal and Alexander Zverev will square off in a mouth-watering opening Semi-Finals of the 2022 French Open on Friday.

All odds were against Nadal prior to his box office encounter with Novak Djokovic in the Quarter-Finals. He struggled with fitness issues prior to the French Open and then was taken to the distance by Auger Aliassime in the Round of 16.

However, Nadal managed to overcome all of these and put in an impressive display against Djokovic, beating the Serb 3-1.

This has definitely been a hugely satisfying result for Nadal as he got his revenge after losing to Djokovic in the Semi-Finals of the French Open last year.

Nadal’s sole defeat in the Semi-Finals at Roland Garros came against Djokovic last year. One interesting fact is that Nadal has never managed to win the French Open and the Australian Open in the same season and he is now just two matches away to achieve that.

Zverev had also been an underdog in the Quarter-Finals as he had to face the in-form Carlos Alcaraz. He won the match in four sets and showed how much damage he can do if he is able to play his best tennis.

The victory against Alcaraz ended Zverev’s poor record against the top 10 players in Grand Slams. Prior to that win, the German has lost 11 consecutive matches against such players.

Zverev has suffered two defeats in his three Semi-Final matches on clay this year and his sole Semi-Final match here at the French Open ended as a defeat against Tsitsipas last year.

We expect a tight contest so our prediction is Over 35.5 Games at odds of 3/4 with Bet365.

Nadal v Zverev is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 1.45pm BST.

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 Rafael Nadal will square off in an unmissable Semi-Final show-down at the 2022 Mexico Open on Saturday.

The pair met in one of the best final matches in Grand Slam history at the Australian Open only a month ago.

Medvedev will become the world number one in the ATP Rankings on Monday regardless of the outcome of this match, meaning that he is relieved of pressure and anything that he gets from here in Acapulco will be a bonus.

In fact, Medvedev will become the first non ‘big four’ player to reach the top spot in ATP Rankings since Andy Roddick back in 2004.

The Russian had a comfortable run in Acapulco so far this week, winning all three of his matches in straight sets while dropping just 15 games.

Medvedev has been one of the most in-form players in the past two years. However, this will be his first Semi-Final appearance in ATP 500 events since Washington 2019.

Nadal, on the other hand, is currently on a 14-match winning streak and is unbeaten in 2022 so far. He definitely has momentum on his side after winning his 21st Grand Slam at the Australian Open.

Similar to Medevev, Nadal has won all his three matches in Acapulco in straight sets and has only dropped 14 games in the process.

Furthermore, the Spaniard is a three-time former champion of ATP Mexico and he hasn’t lost a single set in his previous four Semi-Finals here.

That being said, these two are the most in-form players of the season so far and we can’t expect any other outcome than an intense battle. Therefore, our prediction is Over 2.5 Sets at odds of 5/4 with Bet365.

Medvedev v Nadal is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 4am GMT.

Watch Medvedev v Nadal in the 2022 Mexican Open live stream on laptop, mobile or tablet devices

Rafael Nadal of Spain will take on America’s Tommy Paul in the Quarter-Finals of the 2022 Mexican Open on Friday.

Nadal has extended his winning streak to 13 matches after a comfortable straight sets victory over Kozlov in the previous round here in Mexico. It has been an amazing start of the season for the Spaniard who already won two titles.

In addition, Nadal is a three-time former champion of ATP Acapulco and he has never lost a match in the quarterfinals. He is now searching for a 91st career title, but if he wins this clash he might face Daniil Medvedev in the Semi-Finals.

Nadal has served very well in Acapulco this week and it seems that his game has been firing on all cylinders.

Meanwhile, Paul has also enjoyed a decent year so far, having registered 8 wins in his 12 matches on hard courts. After an impressive First Round win over fifth seed Matteo Berrettini, he followed that up with a deciding set defeat of Dusan Lajovic.

The American should feel confident ahead of this tie as he has already played three quarterfinal matches this year. His best result has been a Semi-Final appearance in the most recent tournament he competed in – Delray Beach Open.

In addition, with his performance this week, Paul has matched his 2020 best performance in Acapulco.

Our prediction for this match is Over 19.5 Games at odds of 5/6 with Bet365.

Nadal v Paul is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 2am GMT.

Watch Nadal v Kozlov in the 2022 Mexican Open live stream on laptop, mobile or tablet devices

Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from Wimbledon 2021 and the Tokyo Olympics to “recuperate” after the clay-court season.

Nadal, the 2008 and 2010 Wimbledon men’s singles champion, has opted out of the grass court show-piece – which begins on June 28.

The 35-year-old was beaten by rival Novak Djokovic in the Semi-Finals of the French Open last weekend and had hinted at potentially pulling out of Wimbledon.

The Spaniard confirmed his decision on social media on Thursday. A statement from Nadal said: ‘Hi all, I have decided not to participate at this year’s Championships at Wimbledon and the Olympic Games in Tokyo. It’s never an easy decision to take but after listening to my body and discuss it with my team I understand that it is the right decision.

‘The goal is to prolong my career and continue to do what makes me happy, that is to compete at the highest level and keep fighting for those professional and personal goals at he maximum level of competition.

‘The fact that there has only been 2 weeks between RG and Wimbledon, didn’t make it easier on my body to recuperate after the always demanding clay court season. They have been two months of great effort and the decision I take is focused looking at the mid and long term.

‘Sport prevention of any kind of excess in my body is a very important factor at this stage of my career in order to try to keep fighting for the highest level of competition and titles.

‘I want to send a special message to my fans around the world, to those in the United Kingdom and Japan in particular.

‘The Olympic Games always meant a lot and they were always a priority as a Sports person, I found the spirit that every sports person in the world wants to live. I personally had the chance to live 3 of them and had the honor to be the flag bearer for my country.’

Nadal has also opted out of the Olympic Games in Tokyo – where he was due to represent Spain from July 23.

Nadal was a gold medalist in the singles at both Beijing 2008 and the doubles at Rio 2016.

Renowned as the ‘King of Clay’, Nadal said the shorter turnaround between the French Open and Wimbledon this year was a key factor in his decision.

There are only two weeks between the French Open finishing on clay and Wimbledon starting on grass as opposed to the usual three weeks between the two Grand Slams.

The French Open was pushed back a week by Roland Garros organisers in order to start the tournament with fewer of the country’s covid restrictions in place – including allowing fans in.
