Cerundolo vs Nadal: prediction for the Wimbledon match
Francisco Cerundolo is going to play his first Wimbledon match ever against Rafael Nadal. Last year, the young Argentine failed to pass the qualifying rounds. Cerundolo has already played three matches on grass in 2022. He reached the second round of the Cinch Championships and lost in the first-round match at the Eastbourne International. Cerundolo's best result this season is winning the challenger in Santa-Cruz.
Rafael Nadal is having a marvellous season. He celebrated success in 31 of his 35 matches in 2022 and has already won four tournaments, including the Australian Open and Roland Garros. No doubt he will attempt collecting the Grand Slam. Rafa hasn't played at Wimbledon since 2019 and will definitely strive to deliver a memorable performance.
Cerundolo has played 2 tie-breaks in his last 5 matches.
In 3 of Nadal's last 5 matches, no more than 9 games were played in the first set.
We do not expect any surprises in this pair. Nadal won 14 out of 14 matches at the Grand Slam tournaments this year. Cerundolo is undoubtedly very talented, but we don't think he will be able to create problems for Nadal.
Our prediction - handicap(-9) to Nadal
Nadal is in great shape. We predict a confident start for the Spanish star and suggest taking the under.
