Rafael Nadal vs Rinky Hijikata Match Preview
On August 30, 2022, Rafael Nadal will meet Rinky Hijikata in the first round of the US Open.
Rafael Nadal will compete for his 23rd Grand Slam championship at the US Open in 2022. The Spanish player should consider himself fortunate to have been dealt such a strong hand. Rinky Hijikata, his opponent from Australia, is a talented fighter. What wasn’t anticipated? Nah.
Rafael Nadal is expected to be the top player in the world after New York. According to what we know, this is the legendary Spaniard’s first return to Flushing Meadows since that year. Rafa has a solid chance of breaking Federer’s five-title record, which he holds with Pete Sampras and Jimmy Connors. There are concerns regarding Nadal’s fitness and readiness to compete. Borna Coric defeated him in the second round of the Cincinnati Masters, his third match following Wimbledon.
Rinky Hijikata qualified for the US Open as a “at-large” player. In the ATP Race to Milan, the young Australian is placed 19th among Next Gen players. In 2022, he won two championships at that level, and his most recent second-place performance at the M25 ITF in Columbus placed him in the top 200.
Hijikata and Nadal have never competed on the ATP Tour. They will play their first match in the US Open. Everyone in Los Cabos recognized Hijikata’s intelligence. Using dropshots, backhand slices, and baseline shots, he was able to dodge Medvedev’s onslaught. He’ll have to play better than he did against Medvedev if he wants to disrupt Nadal’s rhythm. The four-time winner appeared to be withdrawing from the race.
Nadal could win every set if there is no serious opponent.
Nadal is the favorite to win since he is skillful and has been in the game for a longer period of time.
Even the strongest players on the circuit have little chance of defeating the Spaniard. Hijikata is dangerous because of his forehand, backhand, and net skills. Even though Nadal rarely serves aces, returning his serve may be difficult.
Hijikata serves effectively and plays the backcourt with vigour. If Nadal does not get hurt, Australia’s prospects of victory are slim.
Rinky Hijikata vs Rafael Nadal Odds
Rafael Nadal comes up as the favorite with -10000 odds. Meanwhile, Rinky Hijikata has the odds of +1450.
