Nadal - Cressy
In first set to be atleast 10 games or more games in this first set.
Rafael Nadal is going to play his first final of this season. This is preparation for Australian Open for Nadal where he can have big opportunity to win his 21st Grand Slam title here in Australia but it is going to be very hard with new generation coming.
In this final he is absolute favorite as his opponent Maxime Cressy is coming here as big outsider and in his first big ATP final. He got here from qualifiers and it is some kind of surprise. He won six matches here in Melbourne and lost only one set to Opelka. In semifinals he won against Dimitrov. One big characteristic of Cressys game is his serve game. It is not easy to break him and especially to maybe break him twice in first set even though this is Nadal. Nadal isn´t playing his best tennis here and that is obvious but ofcourse that he is favorite but I think Cressy can bag atleast four games in that first set.
