Points won by each set: [ 26-16, 28-23, 25-8 ]
Points won directly behind the serve:
31 % Nadal – 19 of 61
23 % Tsitsipas – 15 of 65

Tsitsipas [15] enjoyed satisfying five 4-setters en route to the semifinal (including a thriller vs double defending champion Federer), but Nadal [2] didn’t even drop a set in the meantime and perhaps it made an impact on the match as well as their two previous meetings which the Spaniard easily won. The young Greek began the semifinal with a nice serve-and-volley action, but since he lost his serve at 1-all it was one way traffic, he had his only break point in the last game after Nadal’s uncharacteristic two consecutive BH-volley mistakes.
