Indian Wells Men's Semi-Final Tips: Nadal meets Alcaraz in potential epic
It's semi-final day at the Indian Wells Masters and there are two intriguing clashes on tonight's schedule. Returning to preview the day ahead is Dan Weston...
Rublev yet to drop a set in the tournament
Alcaraz bringing impressive data into clash with Nadal
That level is top drawer, and assuming Alcaraz can sustain it, would be a real test for Nadal. The elder Spaniard, though, is unbeaten all season, and this would be his 20th consecutive win of a highly productive 2022 for the King of Clay.
Nadal still a justified favourite ahead of the match
When I first looked at the market pricing, I thought Nadal at was pretty generously priced, but having looked at the numbers, I'm not convinced that is the case. Over the last 12 months on hard court, Nadal does have the edge - mostly from serve - but this promises to be a potential epic clash and a pretty competitive one at that. Nadal the justified favourite, but it's far from a foregone conclusion.
