Football tips Here`s what needs to happen to see the Nadal-Federer clash on Saturday
After his terrific victory against Novak Djokovic in a crucial group stage match at the ATP Final Tournament in London, Roger Federer is waiting to find out his rival`s name in the semi-finals. This will happen after playing the last two games of the group stage: Rafael Nadal - Stefanos Tsitsipas and Daniel Medvedev - Alexander Zverev.
Federer, Austrian Dominic Teams and Greek Tsitsipas are three of the players with a guaranteed spot in the semifinals, and the fourth name will be made clear tonight. Each of the three contenders for the next phase in the Andre Agassi Group - Nadal, Medvedev and Zverev has a chance to move forward. That means Federer could face off against his big rival, Nadal, on Saturday.
For this to happen Nadal must necessarily beat Tsitsipas in the early game analyzed by football partners list today, and then the Spaniard must wait for a favorable outcome from the match between Medvedev and Zverev. To continue Nadal, Medvedev must win against last year`s champion Zverev. Interestingly, Nadal cannot finish second in the Agassi Group. Rafa can only become first in his group and if he can do so, he will face Federer, who finished second in the final standings in the Bjorn Borg Group. Nadal has a serious advantage in their straight fights with Federer (24-16 wins), but the Swiss have won four of the five matches between them in the ATP Final. The fifth of Federer`s record-breaking 6 ATP Final Tournament titles came after the success of the final against Nadal - 6:3, 3:6, 6:1 in 2010.
