Auger-Aliassime vs Nadal: prediction for the Roland Garros match
Felix Auger Aliassime
Felix Auger-Aliassime had a difficult first-round match at the current tournament. The Canadian tennis player managed to come back from losing the first two sets to Juan Pablo Varillas (2-6, 2-6, 6-1, 6-3, 6-3). After that, Auger-Aliassime confidently closed Camilo Ugo Carabelli (6-0, 6-3, 6-4) and prevailed over Filip Krajinovic (7-6, 7-6, 7-5).
Rafael Nadal is making his way to yet another French Open final. The eminent Spaniard has won this tournament 13 times, which is more than anyone else. In his opener, the King of Clay beat Jordan Thompson (6-2, 6-2, 6-2), and in the following rounds he celebrated success over Corentin Moutet (6-3, 6-1, 6-4) and Botik Van De Zandschulp (6-3, 6-2, 6-4).
Auger-Aliassime has played 3 tie-breaks in his last 5 matches.
In the last 5 matches of Nadal, no more than 9 games were played in the first set.
Auger-Aliassime is in great shape, but it takes more than just a good effort to defeat Nadal at the French Open. Rafa beat all of his opponents in three sets, and we think he won't leave a chance to the Canadian player.
Our prediction - handicap (-7) to Nadal
We do not expect a long match here. Rafael Nadal should make short work of his opponent.
Second bet - total under 35 games
