Top Nadal vs. Schwartzman predictions

For the 2020 French Open semifinals, Calvert is banking on Schwartzman to win at least one set at -120 (risk $120 to win $100). 

“Nadal has enjoyed an absolute cakewalk of a draw, as he’s yet to face a top-70 ranked opponent,” Calvert told SportsLine. “Then 19-year-old Jannik Sinner gave Nadal all he could handle and more in their quarterfinal on Tuesday. Sinner served for set one of that clash, and with more experience the young Italian may have made a match of that one.”

Schwartzman is coming off a thrilling five-set win over Dominic Thiem, the 2020 U.S. Open champion, and “his mood should be at an all-time high,” Calvert added. “One obvious concern is fitness after that epic Thiem encounter, but he has two days off to recover.”
