As part of the second round match, Roland Garros will clash face-to-face with Corentin Mute and Rafael Nadal. Which of the rivals will get the victory in this confrontation? LiveResult.Ru gives a forecast for this match.
Corentin Moute (France)
This year, the Frenchman shows very weak results. It is worth noting the fact that at the beginning of the year this guy participated in the semi-finals of the Australian Adelaide, where, however, he lost in two sets to Rinderknech (0:2). After that, Korenten played inconspicuously at the Australian Open, where he reached the second round, losing to Korda (2:3). After that, there were extremely unsuccessful tournaments in Monaco, Rotterdam and Ostrava. Interestingly, in the first round, Korenten beat Swiss Wawrinka, although the meeting was very difficult for Mute (3:1).
Rafael Nadal (Spain)
Rafa Nadal has burst into 2022. He managed to immediately win the tournament in Melbourne, defeating the American Cressy in the final (2:0). After that, the Spaniard showed a phenomenal tournament at the Australian Open, which he managed to win again. Moreover, in the final meeting, he lost to Medvedev with a score of 0:2, but managed to pull himself together and beat the young Russian with a score of 3:2. Rafa seemed to miss tennis after a short pause. He rushed forward like a steam locomotive, knocking down everything in his path, and therefore managed to win a tournament in the Mexican city of Acapulco. Everything was going to win at Indian Wells, but Rafa sensationally lost to German Fritz in the final match (0:2). Since then, Nadal has taken a 1.5-month break, but he has not yet been able to return to his level, having flown out in Madrid in the third round, and lost in the second round of the Rome tournament on clay. In the first round, Rafa had no problems in the meeting with the Australian Thompson.
Statistics and figures:
- Nadal is the clear favorite of the meeting;
- Mute won 2 out of 5 meetings;
- Nadal has 3 wins in 5 meetings;
- The rivals have not met before.
Mute will be able to catch on at least in one set for the battle with Nadal, but it is unlikely to win it. Rafa did not come up in the best shape for the tournament, but at any moment he can gather all his strength into a fist and defeat the opponent in three sets. Our bet will be in favor of passing the base total.
