07:06 PMWelcome to Arthur Ashe
Rafael Nadal returns tonight at the U.S. Open with a fourth-round match against U.S. 22nd seed Francis Tiafoe. His opening three games will be very good for overtaking the admittedly dynamic Thiafo here. Victories over Richard Gasquet, Fabio Fognini and Linky Earthquake have been a pretty economical move for Nadal, who appears to be dealing with a warm spell from an abdominal injury. Limits for net tournaments to end abruptly at the semi-final stage.
New toss and slower serve to heal the injury, but does that get Tiafoe into the game?
In its current form, betting against Nadal at Flushing Meadows takes a brave man as he looks for a third Grand Slam title of the season and A record number 23.
At Tiafoe, however, he faces an interesting opponent who will have home support despite Nadal being a New York fan favorite.
The 24-year-old is having a breakout season in 2022 that will see him break into the world’s top 25 for the first time. His performance in the tournament so far has done little to quell expectations, winning three sets in a row including a knockout of Argentina’s 14th seed Diego Schwarzman. in the quarterfinals.
