Tennis predictions for Karen Khachanov vs Rafael Nadal
Rafael Nadal faces Karen Khachanov on the 1/4-finals of the Indian Wells tennis tournament. The duel is expected to be very controversial, and young Russian Karen Khachanov will try to score a first victory against Rafael Nadal in the sixth game between the two.
Karen Khachanov is ranked 13th in the world rankings. The 22-year-old tennis player is proud of one of the greatest talents in the world today and is expected to be a great success in the coming years. Karen Khachanov made a very strong season last year, but now he is still trying to find his best form. He has played strongly on Indian Wells with only one set on the way to the ?-finals.
At the start of his tournament tournament, Karen Khachanov defeated the experienced Spaniard Feliciano Lopez with 6-3, 1-6, 6-4. Then the Russian beat his compatriot Andrey Rublev with 7-5, 6-3. In the fourth round, the 22-year-old tennis player beat John Isner with 2: 0 sets – 6-4, 7-6 in each. Is it possible that Karen Khachanov’s winning move will continue or Rafael Nadal will end his participation in Indian Wells?
The Spaniard is one of the great favorites to win the first Masters Tournament in 2019. Rafael Nadal is very convincing to date and has not lost set yet. He beat Jared Donaldson with 6-1, 6-1 in the first round of the tournament, then beat Diego Sebastian Schwartzman with 6-3, 6-1. The 1/8-finals Rafael Nadal did not leave the chances of Serbian Filip Krajinovic and won with 6-3, 6-4.
Rafael Nadal has five wins in five matches against Karen Khachanov. The Spaniard won three times against the Russian last year. They made a great match in the 3rd round of the US Open, with Nadal winning 3: 1 sets after 5-7, 7-5, 7-6, 7-6. I think Rafael Nadal will be the final winner in the upcoming match, and world number 2 will qualify for the Indian Wells 1/2 finals.
