Rafael Nadal vs. Alexander Zverev preview

Calvert is well aware of just how dominant Rafael Nadal has been at Roland Garros. The veteran is a 13-time French open champion with an obscenely impressive 110-3 career record in the tournament. Overall, Nadal is aiming for a 22nd grand slam title, and he was incredibly strong in a quarterfinal win over top-seeded Djokovic. Nadal is the more consistent force in this matchup, with Zverev often struggling to stay level, and Zverev has an ugly 1-11 record in grand slam matches against top-10 opponents.

Zverev, the No. 3 seed, is also in strong form. He is an elite talent, leading to a Gold Medal at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo and a runner-up finish at the 2020 U.S. Open. He boasts a weapon with his serve, and Zverev is best when he is aggressive. Zverev put together a notable performance in toppling Alcaraz in the quarterfinal, stopping his 14-match winning streak in the process. In that match, Zverev made 70 percent of his first serves and won 73 percent of points on that serve, using his strength and power to an immense advantage.
