We have reached the semifinals stage of the 2020 ATP Finals in London. At this stage of the tournament, Rafael Nadal will play against Daniil Medvedev from Russia.
Daniil Medvedev has been dominant throughout this tournament and has comfortably beaten elite players like Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev. Medvedev secured top spot in the group with 1 match remaining and left Djokovic fighting for second place. It has been a strong few weeks for Daniil Medvedev as he won the Paris Masters prior to arriving in London. When playing at his best, Daniil Medvedev is almost unstoppable and he showed that during the North American leg of the tour last season. Medvedev seems to be in similar form at the moment and that will make him very tough to stop.
On the other side of the coin, Rafael Nadal enters this match having secured second spot in the group behind Dominic Thiem. Rafa defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in 3 sets in the previous round to secure his spot in the semifinals. It was a close match but Nadal showed his class in vital points throughout the match which allowed him to secure the victory. During the win, Nadal won 86% of his service games and 4 return games. Nadal has also been in good form but he has not been at his best in this tournament and that may make it tough for him as he faces an in-form Daniil Medvedev.
Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal have played each other 3 times in the past with Nadal winning on all 3 occasions. The most recent match between these two players was last season at the ATP Finals where Nadal won in 3 sets.
Free Tennis Pick:
Despite the head-to-head record, I am going to pick Daniil Medvedev to win this match. Medvedev is in outstanding form and I see him having too much momentum for Nadal to stop in this match. I see Medvedev winning in 3 sets.
