All eyes will be on Rafael Nadal on Wednesday as he continues his 2021 French Open journey with a quarterfinal match against Diego Schwartzman. Nadal entered the tournament as a strong favorite to garner yet another title at Roland Garros, and a win in this match could set up a high-stakes battle against Novak Djokovic.

Top Nadal vs. Schwartzman predictions
As the all-time wins leader at Roland Garros, Nadal is a significant favorite in this match for a reason. He boasts a 104-2 career record in this event, and Nadal is a 13-time champion. To this point, he has not lost a set in the tournament, though it should be noted that he trailed and faced relative peril in the first set against Jannik Sinner in the fourth round. Nadal also owns a 10-1 career record over Schwartzman, and he has been dominant with his second serve in previous matches against this opponent.
Schwartzman does own a clay court victory over Nadal, with a win in Rome during 2020. While Schwartzman lost five of his previous seven matches on clay before arriving at Roland Garros, he is playing improved tennis on the whole, particularly in service games. There could be room for early optimism with regard to the first set, as Nadal has scuffled out of the gates in a few matches, notably so against Sinner.

In addition to the winner, Calvert has released two other strong bets: a specific pick for the number of sets and whether the match goes over or under 28.5 games. Head to SportsLine to see his French Open best bets.
