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.
