Rafael Nadal will kick off his 2021 French Open campaign with a clash against Alexei Popyrin from 3pm BST on Tuesday.

Rafael Nadal has already secured two titles on clay this season, in Barcelona and Rome. He has won 14 of his 16 matches on clay this year, with those two defeats coming at the hands of Rublev in Monte Carlo and Zverev in Madrid. Rafael Nadal is a 13-time champion of the Roland Garros and has lost just twice in completed matches here. Since his loss to Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals of the 2015 edition, Rafa has played 92 sets in Paris and won 89 in the process.

One of the most recent two defeats of Alexei Popyrin came at the hands of Rafael Nadal in the round of 16 of the Madrid Open a month ago. The Australian looked decent on clay this season, having won 10 of his 18 matches on this surface. Regarding Popyrin’s performance here in Paris, he managed to reach the 2nd round in his debut campaign back in 2019, but then lost in the opening round against Lloyd Haris last year.

Rafael Nadal dropped just six sets against Popyrin in their most recent encounter in Madrid. We expect Rafa to kick off things in a comfortable manner and our prediction is Under 27.5 Games at odds of 6/10 with Bet365.

The match is available to watch live on desktop, mobile or tablet devices in the UK and various other regions worldwide.
