Rafael Nadal takes on Matteo Berrettini in an unmissable Semi-Final show-down at the 2022 Australian Open on Friday.
Nadal is now just two matches away from a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title as he bids to overtake rivals Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.
The Spaniard has had a relatively straightforward route to the Semi-Finals, with the exception of the quarter-final clash with Denis Shapovalov, where he squandered a two-set lead before eventually prevailing in five sets.
Nadal is yet to lose in 2022 after nine matches and has only dropped three sets in the process, two of these against Shapovalov. The 35-year-old has been in top form so far in Melbourne, but suffered some stomach problems during his Quarter-Final match.
Berrettini had a sloppy start to the year but has returned to form in typical fashion in the season’s first Grand Slam.
He was put to test twice in five rounds at the 2022 Australian Open so far, contesting five-set thrillers against Carlos Alcaraz in the Third Round and most recently against Gael Monfils in the Quarter-Finals.
Berrettini actually had just one straight-sets victory en route to the last four. However, he is now the first Italian man to reach the Semi-Finals of the Australian Open.
The number seven seed has a record of nine victories and five defeats in Semi-Final matches, but lost all three such encounters against top 10 players.
We expect this match to go the distance, so our prediction is Over 36.5 Games at odds of 6/10 with Bet365.
