Rafael Nadal has made it into the final of the 2020 Mexican Open. At this stage of the tournament, Nadal will compete against Taylor Fritz from the United States. 

Taylor Fritz enters this match having defeated John Isner in 3 sets in the previous round. It was a close match where Fritz lost the opening set but fought back strongly to win the final 2 sets and the match. During the win, Taylor Fritz won 80% of his service games and 3 return games. 2020 has been a tough season for Taylor Fritz but he has managed to overcome his poor form by producing a strong performance at this tournament. This will be the ultimate test for Taylor Fritz as he is playing against the number 1 seed. 

On the other side of the coin, Rafael Nadal won his previous outing with some ease as he defeated Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets. It was a dominant performance with Nadal only dropping 5 games in the entire match. During the win, Nadal impressed with his receiving as he won 54% of his receiving points which allowed him to break his opponent’s serve on 5 occasions. Nadal is looking in outstanding form and he is yet to drop a set at this tournament. The Mexican Open has always been a strong tournament for Rafael Nadal with the Spaniard winning the title in 2005 and 2013. Considering his recent form and his career achievements, Rafael Nadal will be tough to beat. 

This will be the first time that Rafael Nadal and Taylor Fritz will be playing each other at an ATP event. 

Free Pick:
Rafael Nadal

Taylor Fritz is a very strong player and while he will be confident having just beaten John Isner,  I see him losing this match. Rafael Nadal has been playing at a different level compared to the field at this tournament and he has been dominant in every match he has played. Nadal is the stronger player and I see him being good enough to win this match in straight sets.
