Nadal vs McDonald Prediction & Pick

All Australian Open expert predictions & picks are made by Tennis Tonic.
- Prediction: Nadal in 3 sets

Tennis Tonic sees the reigning Australian Open winner making quick work of Mackenzie McDonald in the second round and I find myself leaning that same way. Now is not the right time to go against Nadal considering he has reached the quarterfinals in each of his last six Australian Open showings.

Meanwhile, McDonald has only advanced past the second round of the Australian Open once in his tennis career (2021). The 27-year-old needed every bit of his talent to get by Brandon Nakashima in five sets during Sunday's Round 1 match, too. Long matches can lead to quite a bit of fatigue.

Fans tuning in on Tuesday are either in for even more brilliance from Nadal or a monumental upset.
