Tennis superstar Rafael Nadal suffered heartbreak on 13 August when he lost to Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro in what was an epic semi-final encounter. The Spaniard eventually losing 5-7, 6-4, 7-6, with Nadal fighting until the end, but he could not cope with his rival's forehand.

The world number three has already won the gold medal in the men's doubles event at the 2016 Olympic games along with his childhood friend and partner Marc Lopez. Despite the loss to Del Potro, Nadal will be happy with the way his body has progressed considering he has been plagued by injuries this season.

The Spaniard comes into this clash as the definite favourite, but a lot will depend on how his body copes up with playing three games in succession.

Meanwhile, his opponent Kei Nishikori is the most successful player in Japanese history and will be looking to win his first Olympic medal after losing in the first round at Beijing and in the quarter-finals in London.

The 29-year-old has looked good in the tournament, having a relatively comfortable run leading up to the semi-final, eventually losing to Andy Murray 6-1, 6-4 in the semi-final.

What also goes against Nishikori is his head-to-head record against Nadal, who has dominated whenever they have faced off. In fact, the Spaniard has won eight of the nine games played, including five on hardcourt surfaces.

Nadal is tipped to win the clash, but if Nishikori can play his best tennis he is more than capable of winning his first Olympic medal.
