Rafael Nadal v Denis Shapovalov live stream | Italian Open 2022 preview

Defending champion Rafa Nadal takes on Denis Shapovalov in a tasty Third Round tie at the 2022 Italian Open in Rome on Thursday.

Nadal has hit the ground running in 2022, winning 23 of his 25 matches so far and picking up three titles, including the Australian Open.

The 35-year-old claimed the Mexican Open title without dropping a single set, while his first defeat of the season came at the hands of Taylor Fritz in the final at Indian Wells.

The Spanish legend was then beaten in three sets by his young compatriot Carlos Alcaraz in the Quarter-Finals of the Madrid Open as the 19-year-old went on to claim an historic title on home soil.

Nadal is looking to build up a head of steam ahead of the upcoming French Open later this month, and a strong run here would prove ideal preparation.

He has dominated this competition on his beloved clay surface, winning the title on ten occasions since 2005, including three of the last four stagings.

Nadal eased past John Isner 6-3, 6-1 in his opening match this week and now faces a tough test against the number 13 seed.

Shapovalov has won 15 out of 23 matches so far this season and was a quarter-finalist at the Australian Open – where he was denied by Nadal in a five-set thriller.

Semi-finalist at the Dubai Tennis Championships, Shapovalov was beaten by Andy Murray in the Last 16 of the recent Madrid Open and is looking to recapture his top form against another of the sport’s greats.

He began his run this week by defeating Lorenzo Sonego before seeing off Nikoloz Basilashvili to set up a show-down with Nadal.

Nadal has won four of their five previous meetings, though it was the Canadian who won their first in the Last 16 of the 2017 Canadian Open.

Either fifth seed Casper Rudd or Jenson Brooksby will await the winner in the Quarter-Finals on Friday.

Nadal v Shapovalov is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 6pm BST.

Home favourite Rafael Nadal steps up his Madrid Open title quest with a Third Round clash against David Goffin on Thursday.

Third seed Nadal is vying for a sixth Madrid Open title and a first since 2017 as he looks to continue his prolific dominance on clay.

The 35-year-old has enjoyed a terrific start to the season with 21 wins from 22 matches, and three titles to his name, including the Australian Open.

His only defeat of the season so far came at the hands of Taylor Fritz in the final of Indian Wells, and he began his campaign on home soil in Madrid with a routine straight sets win over Miomir Kecmanović.

After missing the Monte-Carlo Masters and the Barcelona Open through injury, Nadal is looking to build up a head of steam ahead of the upcoming French Open, and a strong run here would prove ideal preparation.

Goffin, meanwhile, picked up his sixth career title at the Grand Prix Hassan II in Marrakech last month and came through the qualifiers to reach this event.

The 31-year-old Belgian is a three-time Grand Slam quarter-finalist and has two career wins over Nadal from their six previous meetings.

Goffin has seen off Aslan Karatsev and Botic van de Zandschulp so far this week without dropping a set and will look to serve up a tough test for the Spanish star.

Either Great Britain’s Cameron Norrie or Spanish sensation Carlos Alcaraz will await the winner in the Quarter-Finals.

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

Rafael Nadal will take on Taylor Fritz in the final of the 2022 Indian Wells Masters on Sunday.

Nadal is currently on a 20-match winning streak after his semi-final victory in three sets over fellow countryman Carlos Alcaraz. It was for the fifth time in as many matches this campaign when he had to fight back from a break deficit.

Nadal has completely dominated the main tour in these first three months of 2022. He has won all three tournaments he competed in – Melbourne Summer Set, Australian Open, and Acapulco Open.

Another interesting fact is that Rafa has won only 25 matches in the entire 2021 season, but he has already registered 20 wins with zero defeats so far in 2022. Another victory here for the Spaniard will see him level Novak Djokovic for the most Masters titles won.

Meanwhile, Fritz has beaten Andrey Rublev in straight sets in the semi-finals and he is now in the final of a Masters event for the first time in his career. Due to this win, Fritz has reclaimed the American number one tag and he will make his debut in the top 15 next week.

The worrying thing for Fritz is that he holds an awful 1-5 record in championship matches on the main tour. In addition, the American players are currently on a four-match losing run in the finals at the Indian Wells.

We expect a comfortable victory for Rafael Nadal tonight, so our prediction is a 2-0 win at odds of 6/10 with Bet365.

Rafa Nadal v Fritz is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 10pm GMT.

Rafael Nadal will be looking for his 20th consecutive win in 2022 when he takes on Carlos Alcaraz in the semifinals of the 2022 Indian Wells Masters this Saturday.

Carlos Alcaraz will face his idol in the semifinals of the 2022 Indian Wells Masters on Saturday. Alcaraz has lost just one of his 13 matches in 2022. During this impressive run, Alcaraz has won a trophy on clay at the Rio de Janeiro where he dropped just two sets.

Carlos has entered the Indian Wells as the 19th seed but he looked extremely solid in the first four rounds. Alcaraz has beaten the likes of McDonald, Bautista-Agut, Monfils and Norrie without losing a single set in the process.

This will be Alcaraz’s maiden Masters 1000 semifinal and his record in the semifinals on the main tour is 3-3.

Meanwhile, Rafael Nadal has won all his 19 matches in 2022, but he has shown signs of weakness in his previous two matches at the 2022 Indian Wells. During this impressive run, Rafa has won titles at the Melbourne Summer Set, Australian Open, and Acapulco. Therefore, this will be Nadal’s four consecutive final in 2022.

Rafael Nadal is a three-time former champion at Indian Wells, but he has failed to win his most recent two semifinal ties here back in 2016 and 2019.

Our prediction for this clash is Under 23.5 Games at odds of 3/4 with Bet365.

Alcaraz v Rafa Nadal is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 9.30pm GMT.

Rafael Nadal will be looking for his 19th consecutive win of the season when he takes on Reilly Opelka in the third round of 2022 Indian Wells on Wednesday at 7.30 pm (UK Time).

Rafael Nadal had a tricky match against Sebastian Korda in the opening round of Indian Wells, but he then won comfortably against Evans (7-5, 6-3) in the second round. That was Rafa’s 18th consecutive victory in 2022, which is actually his career-best start to a season. In addition, the victory marked Nadal’s 400th triumph at the Masters 1000 level.

During this amazing run, Rafa did well to win titles in Melbourne Summer Set, Australian Open, and Acapulco. Furthermore, Rafa has won 95 matches and lost just 11 in the round of 16 in Masters events, so he should feel comfortable ahead of this clash with Opelka.

Reilly Opelka has also had an excellent start to the season by winning his third career title in Dallas and following this up with an appearance in the final of the Delray Beach Open.

In addition, Opelka had an amazing start here at the 2022 Indian Wells, beating the likes of Musetti and Shapovalov in straight sets.

This should be a comfortable win for Rafa, so our prediction is Rafael Nadal to win 2-0 at odds of 57/100 with Bet365.

Rafa Nadal v Opelka is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 7.30pm GMT.

Rafael Nadal and Daniel Evans will go toe-to-toe in the third round of the 2022 Indian Wells on Monday at 7.30pm (UK Time).

Rafael Nadal’s 17th victory of the season wasn’t an easy one, as he was thoroughly tested by Sebastian Korda. Actually, The Spaniard recovered from 2-5 down in the decider to beat the talented American in a tiebreaker. This came as a surprise especially after Rafa had a flawless tournament in Acapulco where he hasn’t dropped a single set in five matches.

Although Rafa is 35-years-old, this is his best-ever start to a tennis season. The last time he had a strong start to the season was in 2019 when he managed to reach the semifinals here at Indian Wells.

After a first-round bye, Daniel Evans has registered a flawless 6-2, 6-0 victory over Coria in the second round at Indian Wells. Evans had a solid start to the season with three victories in the ATP Cup. Then, he followed this up with a semifinal appearance in Sydney where he lost in three sets against Karatsev.

The Brit has never progressed beyond the 3rd round at Indian Wells in his previous three attempts. It has to be said that all his previous opponents at this stage of this competition were players ranked inside the top 10.

We fancy Under 21.5 Games at odds of 1/2 with Bet365 for this clash.

Rafa Nadal v Evans is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 7.30pm GMT.

Rafael Nadal and Sebastian Korda will square off in the second round of the 2022 Indian Wells Masters on Saturday at 8.30pm (UK Time).

Rafael Nadal is now looking for his 4th consecutive trophy in 2022 after winning back-to-back titles in Melbourne Summer Set, Australian Open, and Acapulco. The Spaniard has won all his 15 matches in 2022 and has dropped just seven sets in the process. Rafa hasn’t dropped a single set in his most recent tournament in Acapulco.

Rafael Nadal has won the Indian Wells title on three occasions in his career, but the most recent one was back in 2013. Furthermore, Rafa hasn’t lost a single match in the second round of the Indian Wells.

On the flip side, Sebastian Korda has only played nine matches on hard courts so far this season and has won six of these. Korda has recently reached the quarter-finals in Delray Beach, but then lost in the opening round of the Acapulco Open.

Korda began his Indian Wells adventure with a comfortable 6-3, 6-4 victory over Thanasi Kokkinakis, but he will now face the best performer in 2022 – Rafael Nadal. The last time Korda met Nadal was at the French Open two years ago when he won just four games.

Our prediction for this match is Rafael Nadal to win 2-0 at odds of 1/2 with Bet365.

Rafa Nadal v Korda is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 8.30pm GMT.

Rafael Nadal and Cameron Norrie will square off in the final of the 2022 Mexican Open in Acapulco on Sunday.

Nadal is having an amazing start to the season as he has won all his 15 matches on hard courts so far. The Spaniard started 2022 with a trophy in Melbourne Summer Set and followed that up with his 21st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open.

This week in Acapulco, Nadal has won all his matches in straight sets, including an impressive performance against Daniil Medvedev in the Semi-Finals.

ATP Acapulco has been one of Nadal’s most successful tournaments on hard courts on the main tour. He has won the tournament three times so far and holds a 3-1 record in championship matches.

The most impressive thing is that the Spaniard hasn’t dropped a single set in any of the 24 matches he has won in this tournament.

Meanwhile, Norrie extended his winning streak to eight matches after beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets in the semi-finals. He has dropped just two sets in the process and he has recently won the Delray Beach tournament.

The Brit has won two titles in 2021, at Los Cabos and Indian Wells, and also finished as runner-up in San Diego. He has converted just two of his six championship matches on the main tour.

Although Norrie is in excellent form at the moment, we don’t think he can stop Rafa to win his fourth title here in Acapulco. Our prediction is Under 21.5 Games at odds of 9/10 with Bet365.

Nadal v Norrie is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 3am GMT.

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 continues his quest for a fourth ATP Acapulco title with a Second Round tie against Stefan Kozlov.

Nadal etched his name into the tennis record books by securing his 21st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in Melbourne last month to overtake rivals Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic at the top of the all-time list.

The 35-year-old, who had been out of action since ending his season early in August due to a foot injury, rolled back the years to pull off a stunning success Down Under.

Following wins over Karen Khachanov, Denis Shapovalov, and Matteo Berrettini, Nadal incredibly battled back from two sets down to defeat Daniil Medvedev in a pulsating five-set final.

In doing so, the Spaniard also became only the second man in the Open Era, after Djokovic, to complete the double career Grand Slam.

He is now ranked world number five and will be looking to pick up from where he left off in Australia, starting at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel (ATP Mexico).

Nadal is a three-time winner of the Mexican Open, most recently in 2020, making him the second most successful player in the 29-year history of the tournament.

Nadal, seeded number four, is among a star-studded field for the ATP 500 event on hard court, which includes four of the world’s top five ranked players.

He began his campaign with a routine straight sets win over world number 105 Denis Kudla on Wednesday for the total loss of just five games.

Next up is a tie against America’s Stefan Kozlov – one of three ‘Lucky Losers’ in the competition – who enjoyed an impressive three-set scalp of Grigor Dimitrov in his opener.

Kozlov is world ranked 130 and reached the Second Round of the recent Australian Open – marking his best run in a Grand Slam to date.

This will be the first competitive meeting between the two players on any surface and sees Nadal bidding to avoid what would be a monumental upset on current form.

Again, it is difficult to foresee anything other than a straight sets win for Rafa, but 1/12 others nothing in the way of value, so we are opting for a Nadal win and over 16.5 total games at 4/6 with Bet365.

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