Based on what? Last time Nadal beat Zverev on a hard court was 2017 and Zverev has improved tremendously since then.

In my opinion, Zverev will smack Nadal and may cause some trouble for Medvedev.

Based on the fact Zverev doesn’t win big games, Nadal in 3 or 4.

Was wondering that as well, looked like they both had a laugh about it though.

Felt like Osaka asked her something about her bracelet.
Yes, I thought she may have said you will can the tournament or something but it looks bracelet talk when i looked again.

Best match of the tournament this far. No one is backing down. 3 hours and still in the third set at 3-4.
Mannarino is a very unique player. Love the flat backhand

Karatsev breaks, then Mannarino breaks. And suddenly it’s back to 4-4. Nuts this match

Mannarino gets the third set. This has five set written all over it. 3 hours and 40 minutes through already

You looked at Rafa's draw and thought Hurkacz or Karatsev would be a solid round 4 match up and Mannarino comes out and smokes them both.

Use the report button please.
Cleaned up.

Anymore of the stupid sexualised and misogynistic comments tomorrow and there will be infractions and thread bans for the rest of the tournament.
Grow up ffs people, you know who you are.

You could at least go with a tennis theme and threaten code violations, point deductions and match defaults!!

He’ll smack Zverev but Mededev is going to be tough

Based on the fact Zverev doesn’t win big games, Nadal in 3 or 4.

“Doesn’t win big games” yet won the Olympic Gold Medal, won ATP 1000’s and made Grand Slam Finals all in recent times.

The only thing that would worry me about Zverev is his Grand Slam Final performance. Not anything before that. I’d say it would be a different story if on a clay court but it is not. So Zverev in 3 for me.
