Rafael Nadal will look to secure his third Mexican Open title as he takes on the big-serving Taylor Fritz in the final. They have never met before but Fritz will need his serve to be at its very best if he is to cause an upset. I’m looking at the total games market for value.

Rafael Nadal Form


Rafael Nadal is a two time winner of the ATP Mexican Open and looks set for his first title in Mexico since 2013. He has cruised through to the final beating Pablo Andujar 6-3, 6-2 in the first round. Miomir Kecmanovic caused Nadal a few problems but the Spaniard saw him off 6-2, 7-5.

Kwon Soon-woo hardly challenged in the third round with Nadal winning 6-2, 6-1 and then beat 7th seed Grigor Dimitrov 6-3, 6-2 in the semi final.

I can’t see Nadal having too many issues getting past Taylor Fritz in the final. Rafael Nadal will be desperate to get another hard court title behind his back as he has struggled on the surface in recent times.

I can see a straight sets win for Nadal with the match going under 19.5 games at even money.

Taylor Fritz Form


Taylor Fritz beat John Millman 7-5, 3-6, 6-1 in the first round before Ugo Humbert was seen off 6-4, 6-1 but he big serving American. Kyle Edmund was Fritz’s next victim in the quarter final 6-4, 6-3 before fellow big serving American John Isner took Fritz to three sets 2-6, 7-5, 6-3.

Taylor Fritz has improved his tennis a lot over the last 6-12 months as can be seen by his results at the ATP Acapulco, beating higher ranked opponents on regular occasions. Coming up against the World No.2 is however a step too far in my opinion.

Rafael Nadal vs Taylor Fritz Match Up


Rafael Nadal has been brilliant all week while Taylor Fritz will be hugely reliant on his big serve to stay in the match. Unfortunately over time Nadal should be able to wear Fritz out with long rallies as the American should make plenty of unforced errors.

Taylor Fritz is not accustomed to going through long rallies so it is difficult to see where he can find a break of serve from while Nadal will continuously pressure his.
