As for Andreas Seppi, he had to overcome the Frenchman Stephane Robert in two and a half hours and four sets. With unforced errors as low as six, the Italian displayed some quality tennis. However, his season hasn't been that impressive as his record is 17-19. With no titles to boast of, his best run came in the Aegon Open, where he was the semifinalist. Rafael Nadal on the other hand has been working pretty hard this season, having won two titles already. Nonetheless, he still has a lot of room for improvement.
Head to head speaking, Rafael Nadal leads 7-1, with his last win against Andreas Seppi coming in the recently concluded Olympics in straight sets. Given his past history and the momentum, the fourth seed should win this one comfortably.
