Raphael Nadal vs David Goffin Goffin surprisingly has beaten Nadal twice. Goffin has turned around his form from terrible 2021. He has had 2 good wins so far in Madrid. But it’s Nadal on clay in Spain.
Prediction: Nadal in straight sets and under 20.5 games Carlos Alcaraz vs Cameron Norrie These guys have played twice and Norrie hasn’t won a set. I don’t see this changing now. Alcaraz has too much power and will get to many balls out of Norris’s hitting zone.
Prediction: Alcaraz in straight sets Grigor Dimitrov vs Stefanos Tsitsipas This is the 2nd match up in as many weeks. Tsitipas comfortably took care of him last week. But the extra week on clay, makes me think this week will be closer. I think Tsitipas has the edge on clay though Prediction: Tsitipas in 3 sets Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Jannik Sinner This has the potential to be the match up of the day. Both improving rapidly. Dinner has more experience on clay and I think he moves better on it. This is a big factor on clay as it allows you to move into your shots better. I think the match will go back and forth, and will be decided right at the end of the third set Prediction: Sinner in 3 tight sets
