SUMMARY

Rafael Nadal did a fantastic job of steadying the ship after his lapse late in the third set, and Daniil Medvedev overcame another mid-match meltdown to claim victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas.

What a sensational final this shapes up to be. Whilst both have been tested at various stages of the tournament, the cooler conditions on Sunday night should allow for a fantastic battle between the two.

Their last three meetings have all gone the distance in what is a great match-up stylistically. Nadal will be leaving everything he has on that court in his quest for grand slam 21. The crowd is going to be incredibly pro-Nadal, which will be a huge test for the mental resilience of Medvedev. This is likely to come down to how well Medvedev serves in key moments (perhaps the threat of Nadal at the other end may lead to a double fault or two in key moments). I like Nadal to cover the game handicap here.
