Nitto ATP Finals 2019: Rafael Nadal vs Stefanos Tsitsipas, Group Stage, Where to watch, TV Schedule, Live Stream details and more
The much-heated debate that was doing the rounds before the beginning of the Nitto ATP Finals have finally been put to rest with Rafael Nadal set to end the year as Number 1.
In a strange pattern of events, it was due to Roger Federer's emphatic triumph over a meek Novak Djokovic that gifted Nadal the peace of retaining the top slot on the tour.
That said and done, Nadal still has a lot to achieve on his own while the ATP Finals trophy is still amiss from his cabinet.
Having lost his opening group stage match against Alexander Zverev, Nadal produced some unbelievable tennis against the Russian star, Daniil Medvedev.
Fighting back from a set down, Nadal stunned the spectators at the O2 Arena which reminded everyone why he is the year-ending World No.1, undoubtedly. Due to clash with an undefeated Stefanos Tsitsipas, Rafael Nadal will have his hands full today.
The 21-year-old Greek has been phenomenal of late as he crushed the challenge of Alexander Zverev and Daniil Medvedev in straight-set victories.
Rafael Nadal leads the head to head against Tsitsipas at 4-1 but the Greek star has shown a lot of promise and we shouldn't be surprised if he pulls off a stunner today.
The chances of Nadal making it to the semis is a little precarious though. In the other Group Andre Agassi match, if Zverev, the defending champion, triumphs over Medvedev then the German will go onto the semis.
Even if Nadal wins against Tsitsipas, he would have to exit if Zverev wins.
For now, Nadal can rest easy knowing he is the No. 1 and give it his all against a belligerent Tsitsipas who hopes to cause harm in the Spaniard's camp.
