Novak Djokovic vs. Rafael Nadal

Novak Djokovic will face Rafael Nadal in the semifinals of Roland-Garros on June 11. What will be the outcome of the upcoming match? See the answer in our forecast.

Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic somehow not very confidently spent the last two fights at the current Roland-Garros. In the match against Lorenzo Musetti, the Serb was forced to recoup from the score of 0-2 in sets.

In the recent quarterfinal match against Matteo Berrettini, Novak also acted imperfectly. Of course, Djokovic is now unlikely to count on something in the game against Nadal. Although we all know that the Serb can significantly transform his game in a short period of time.

Rafael Nadal

Rafa Nadal finally lost the first set at the current Roland-Garros. In the quarterfinals, the Spaniard lost the game to Diego Schwartzman. Nevertheless, there was still no intrigue in the match - Rafa "closed" the Argentinean in four sets, winning the last game with a score of 6-0.

Nadal really gained a decent pace to the very finish of the competition. The only aspect in Rafa's game that raises concerns is his serve, which periodically lets the Spaniard down.

All predictions for Tennis


  • In the last four games, Djokovic has played a tie-break three times.
  • Under 9.5 games have been played in 4 of Nadal's last 5 matches in the first set.

Our Prediction

Nadal still has a significant advantage in this pair. It cannot be said, of course, that Djokovic does not know how to play against Rafa on clay, but still, the Spaniard played his previous games in the current tournament much more confidently than the Serbian tennis player.

Besides, recall that here in Paris last year, Nadal defeated Djokovic in the final, beating him in the first game with a score of 6-0 and in total giving only nine games. We believe that miracles should not be expected in the upcoming meeting - Rafa will again deal with Djokovic in three sets.

We predict that Nadal will win with a handicap (-4.5) for 1.90 in BC 1XBET.
