French Open 2022, Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal Tennis Live Score Streaming: French Open quarter-final match between world number one Novak Djokovic and 13-time champion Rafa Nadal has been scheduled to be played during the controversial night session despite the Spaniard expressing reservations against it.
Rafa Nadal understands it will be a “big challenge” for him to beat Novak Djokovic in Tuesday’s French Open quarter-final but the 13-times winner vowed not to shy away from a fight against the world number one.
Nadal had won the French Open four years in a row before losing to eventual champion Djokovic in the semi-finals last year – just the third time he had been beaten at the claycourt major since his debut in 2005.
When and what time will the French Open match between Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal be played?
These two have met once or twice before of course — just the small matter of 58 times, in fact!
Djokovic leads that head to head by 30-28, but Nadal, as you might imagine, has the edge on clay: 19-8. That said, it was the Serbian world no.1 who triumphed when they played in last year’s French Open, at the semi-final stage.إقرأ أيضا:أسباب تورم القدم الحامل وعوامل الخطورة وطرق الوقاية
Djokovic has already won the first mini-battle of this quarter-final, with the match having been scheduled for an evening slot at Roland-Garros. It will start at 8.45 p.m. local time (7.45 p.m. BST / 2.45 p.m. ET), and Nadal has previously stated he doesn’t like night games on clay, because “humidity is higher, the ball is slower.”إقرأ أيضا:جمالك | أليكم علاج انتفاخ جفن العين العلوي
Possibly with that in mind, Djokovic is the favorite: he’s at -230 (risk $230 to win $100) with Caesars Sportsbook, while Nadal is at +175.
Do those odds underestimate Nadal’s chances in this massive French Open match on the Court Philippe-Chatrier? We’ll find out later today.
