Prediction and Conclusion

Rafael Nadal is still trying to recover and get back to some competitive shape as Roland Garros gets closer. Going to Madrid, he said that if he feels the way he does at the moment, he would not play in Paris, which means that he is still far from his desired shape. He played a couple of solid matches in Barcelona and had another week to prepare for Madrid. Nadal will face wildcard teenager Darwin Blanch, who is still playing on the futures level. The young American is impressed by just taking the court against one of the greatest players ever and has a chance to make a real sensation. Nadal is his biggest opponent in this match, and no matter his current state, he would cover the -7.5-game spread against Blanch.
