World #4 Rafael Nadal continued his dominant start to the season as he claimed his 20th victory at the trot with his 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 win over the 18-year-old Spanish tennis prodigy Carlo Alcaraz in the semifinals of 2022 Indian Wells Masters. With the win, Nadal becomes only the second man after that Novak Djokovic starting a season with 20 straight wins.

While the Alcaraz challenge was already tough, the conditions at Indian Wells were also challenging today. With strong winds and a looming sandstorm, playing at ‘Tennis Paradise’ was difficult today with bottles and players’ towels flying everywhere. Despite the difficult conditions, Nadal clinched victory in one of the most exciting matches of the tournament.

The former British No. 1 and world No. 4 watched the game live from the stadium Greg Russedski who has worked as an analyst for various tennis media houses since his retirement. The former US Open runner-up used his official Twitter account to post a video of the fabulous match, which he was fortunate to witness from the stands, and spoke of his admiration for the 21-time Grand Slam champion.

“What a feat by @RafaelNadal to beat @alcarazcarlos03 in very difficult conditions. If the body recovers, his winning streak will continue in the finals this year.” tweeted Rusedski.

While Nadal sealed the victory over Alcaraz, TaylorFritz followed him into the final with a win in straight sets Andrei Rublev that ended Andrey’s unbeaten streak of 13 games. Fritz became the first American since John Isner 2012 to reach the finals in Indian Wells.

The Californian will look to retain the trophy in California itself and stop Nadal from matching Djokovic’s record 37 Masters titles. Fritz will play in his first Masters final while Nadal will appear in his 53rd ATP 1000 final. Both Nadal and Fritz are expected to rise in the rankings, with Fritz expected to break into the top-15 while Nadal is set to be replaced Alexander Zverev in the top 3.
