Currently ranked 3rd in the ATP world rankings, Rafael Nadal is on a tear so far this year. The 36-year-old broke the record of most grand slam titles held by a player when he won the 2022 Australian Open. The Spaniard then went on to win the French Open Championship for the 14th to take his grand-slam tally to 22.
The arguably greatest of all time now returns to the Flushing Meadows for his fifth US Open title. A win here will also ensure his reclaiming of the no. 1 spot in the rankings as the current no. 1 Daniil Medvedev bowed out of the tournament early losing to Nick Kyrgios in the round of 16.
Frances Tiafoe reached his career high ranking this year breaking the top 25 for the first time. He has been consistent by his standards throughout the year. Although the 24-year-old American failed to win a title in 2022 as of yet, he had decent performances in multiple tournaments.

Nadal vs Tiafoe Prediction:
Nadal, considering his form this year at the slams, is the overwhelming favorite to win the match. However, following his injury at the 2022 Wimbledon, he only played in one hard court tournament, Cincinnati Masters 2022. He got knocked out in the first round there. His lack of preparation in the hard courts might play into Tiafoe’s hand. Although unlikely, Tiafoe is capable of pulling off an upset.
Prediction: Rafael Nadal wins in 3 sets.
