Nadal vs. Zverev French Open Predictions

The clay court gods could not have been less kind to Nadal and Zverev, who have both seen some of their biggest successes at Roland Garros. Nadal has won the French Open a record 14 times but he’s currently ranked 276th (due to injuries), while the fourth-ranked Zverev has made the semifinals three times, including an agonizing loss to Nadal in 2022, when the German had to retire after rolling his ankle.

Nadal is the sentimental favorite, though oddsmakers have Zverev as the pick to win, after he just won the Rome Masters last week.


The French Open is the second of four Grand Slam tennis tournaments each year, though it’s the only one played on a clay court surface.
