What’s at Stake?

Nadal and Zverev will try to kick off their respective ATP Finals campaign with an important victory.

The two players have plenty at stake heading into this tournament.

For Nadal, it offers a chance to win one of the few important titles still missing from his resume.

Depending on Djokovic’s results, Nadal would need an undefeated run to the finals in order to retain his spot at the top of the ranking.

So, it goes without saying that this match holds some additional importance for the Spaniard player.

Zverev wants to win at least one trophy in order to wrap up what has been a disappointing year.

While many expected the German to be among the contenders for a Slam in 2019, Zverev fell well short of it.

After winning at least one Masters 1000 title in the last two years, he only had one ATP 250 title to show for this year.

As the defending winner, Zverev will hope for a repeat in order to end 2019 on a high and build momentum for 2020.

Rafael Nadal

2019 Record: 51-6, 4 titles

Despite making it to the Australian Open final, it took until May for Nadal to win his first title of 2019.

He then went on to further extend his record at Roland Garros, winning the Slam for the 12th time.

Nadal then added a 19th major title to his resume, winning the US Open over Daniil Medvedev.

The Spaniard made it to the semifinals in five of six hard-court tournaments, winning two titles.

His most recent tournament was the Paris 1000, with another semi-finals berth.

Nadal withdrew from his match citing an abdominal injury.

There is no indication that this is a lingering problem, however, so he should be good to go for the ATP Finals.

Nadal qualified for the year-end tournament on 14 occasions but withdrew from it six times.

He made it to the final match twice, losing to Roger Federer in 2010 and Novak Djokovic in 2013.

His most recent appearance was in 2017, during which he failed to make it out of round-robin.

Alexander Zverev

2019 Record: 42-23, 1 title

After making it to the fourth round at the Australian Open for the first time, it looked like Zverev’s year would live up to the expectations.

Instead, the German went on a terrible losing streak and piled up first and second-round exits through 2019.

He finally won the first trophy of the year in May, the Geneva Open.

Zverev again failed to make it past the quarterfinals of a major tournament, his best result coming at Roland Garros.

The German-made it to his third final in 2019 last month, losing to Daniil Medvedev in Shanghai.

He then followed it up with yet another first-round exit in Basel and a Round of 16 exit in Paris.

Recapturing his ATP Finals magic from last year is the last hope to salvage the year.

Nadal vs Zverev – Head to Head and Predictions

Nadal might not have the best ATP Finals record, but it’s hard to deny he is the favorite for this match.

Despite being the defending champion, Zverev hasn’t shown much in 2019 to convince that a title defense is a real possibility.

Additionally, Nadal holds a huge advantage on the head to head, winning all five matches between the two.

Nadal holds a 2-0 record on the hard surface, although this is their first-time match held indoors.

Prediction: Nadal 2-0, Under 22.5 games
