Rafael Nadal can hardly be happy with 2021. Of course, the Spaniard won two trophies this year, but the main one – Roland Garros – did not submit to him.
The clay king on his favourite surface failed to cope with Novak Djokovic (6-3, 3-6, 6-7, 2-6) in the semifinals. Rafael finished the official season in the competition in Washington, where he beat Jack Sok (6-2, 4-6, 7-6) in the first round but then lost to Lloyd Harris (4-6, 6-1, 4-6).

In the quarterfinal match, the eminent Briton, without any problems, dealt with his compatriot Daniel Evans in two games (6-3, 6-2). In 2021, Murray did not show many positive results, but there is nothing to blame him for. Andy has not returned to his previous level after hip surgery; however, judging by the results, he is very close to it.
Nadal made his last appearance on court in an official game this year in August, so it’s not very clear what physical condition the eminent Spaniard is in at the moment. Nevertheless, despite this, we still suggest giving preference to Rafa in this match. He leads in personal meetings with Murray with a score of 17-7, so he knows how to beat the Briton.
Our prediction is that Nadal will win with a handicap (-2) of the game for the odds of 1.88. Only one game was with a total of games over in the last five head-to-head brawls. We believe that in the upcoming meeting everything will be decided rather quickly, so we propose to bet on the total of under 22 games in this match with the odds of 1.89.
