At the moment, Nadal does not have any sorrow for himself, he tries to hold all the big tournaments and at the same time participate in the team competitions, where he is the leader of his team. But so far, the Spaniard can’t interrupt the dominance of Djokovic on the hards. Each of their personal meetings ends up with a failure for Raphael. If the Spaniard wants to get another victory in the Grand Slam tournament, then it is inevitable that they meet in the final of AO. It is for this reason that Raphael now needs to play in an energy-saving mode.
Only at the Australian Open you can see how Kyrgios running after each ball and not giving any opportunity to his opponents. The Australian has a crazy support from the stands and will do everything possible to live up their expectations. Before meeting with Khachanov, Nick looked very confident. But now the tennis player is extremely exhausted, he spent more than 4 hours on the court. Less than 24 hours left to recover for the match against Nadal.

Rafael Nadal vs Nick Kyrgios Game Prediction
Of course, Kyrgios will fight, but Nadal understands what physical condition the Australian will be in and from the first seconds will begin imposing long strike exchanges. Nick will not be able to maintain such a pace, therefore, he would risk unreasonably which could end up with a huge number of mistakes. So Nadal would easily pass on. Our prediction is a win for Rafael Nadal.
