Rafael Nadal vs Borna Coric Prediction, Head-to-Head, Preview, Betting Tips and Live Stream- Cincinnati Open

Second seed In the Cincinnati Open’s second round on Wednesday, Rafael Nadal will square off against Borna Coric. Read below for Rafael Nadal vs Borna Coric Prediction, Head-to-Head, Preview, Betting Tips and Live Stream.

The illustrious tennis player is currently having a superb season. This season, Nadal made history by becoming the first player in history to win the first two Grand Slams in consecutive years.

The former World No. 1 immediately returned to winning form in 2022, having spent the majority of 2021 recovering from a foot injury. His 89th career title was his to win as he participated in the Melbourne Summer Set and had a smooth title run.

Rafael Nadal increased his own record by winning his 22nd Grand Slam and 14th Roland Garros championship in Paris. He defeated Casper Ruud in the championship match 6-3, 6-3, 6-0.
The Spaniard will play in his first match since pulling out of Wimbledon in the second round of the Cincinnati Masters.

Borna Coric, in contrast, hasn’t had the same success after undergoing shoulder surgery. The Croat was sidelined for the entirety of 2021 and made a comeback at the Indian Wells Open this year, but he did not make it through the first round.

The 25-year-old has subsequently competed in other Challenger competitions, taking first place in the Parma Challenger. He also advanced to the German Open quarterfinals before quitting mid-game.

Based on a protected ranking, Coric is participating in the Cincinnati Masters.

Rafael Nadal vs Borna Coric Predictions

The clear favourite in this matchup will be Rafael Nadal. This year, the Spaniard is picking his events wisely. Although he hasn’t competed in many titles, he has progressed to the important stages of those he has played in.

The astonishing 35-3 win-loss record for the season belongs to the 22-time Major winner. He won the 2013 Cincinnati championship and has advanced to the quarterfinals on four occasions.

The left-hander poses a threat because to his aggressive playing style and strong forehand. His footwork is superb, and he seldom ever allows a ball to get past him.
When at his best, Coric is a productive baseliner with solid court-coverage abilities. He will try to draw on the fact that he has already advanced beyond the Spaniard in Cincinnati.

Needless to say, it is a mammoth task to get past Nadal’s grit and persistence. He has shown great precision during each comeback this season and should be able to get past the Croat on Wednesday.

Nadal to win in straight sets.
