Is another Rafael Nadal Grand Slam title just a formality at this point?

According to the bookmakers, the answer is pointing to yes.

This year's US Open Finals will feature Daniil Medvedev vs Rafael Nadal. This is a slightly surprising final, as Nadal isn't his strongest on the hard courts of New York. With that being said, Nadal is the clear favourite to win on Sunday.

Rafael Nadal has won this tournament three times, with his most recent victory coming in 2017. Prior to that, Nadal had victories in 2010 and 2013.

Medvedev is the much younger player (10 years the junior of Nadal), and there will be a significant experience gap when the two players step onto center court on Saturday. This is the farthest that Medvedev has ever progressed in a Grand Slam tournament - prior to this, his best finish was a 4th round exit in the 2019 Australian Open.

Medvedev has caused quite a stir in New York due to his antics, and there will be no doubt that the fans will be on Nadal's side on Sunday.
