  • The 2019 US Open Final takes place on Sunday at 4 p.m. ET (ESPN) with Rafael Nadal facing Daniil Medvedev.
  • Sean Zerillo previews the match and provides his favorite bet for Sunday afternoon.

Sunday marks the fourth straight finals appearance since Wimbledon for Daniil Medvedev, who lost to Nick Kyrgios in two tiebreaks in Washington and Rafael Nadal (at their only previous meeting) in the Rogers Cup, before avenging his Wimbledon loss against David Goffin to capture the Cincinnati Masters.

Nadal is seeking his fourth career U.S. Open title today, and 19th slam title overall, and will be looking to avoid becoming the next stop on the Medvedev revenge tour.

Save for that final in Montreal against Nadal, where he won just three games,the Russian has looked virtually unbeatable on the recent hard court swing.

But after spending so much time on the court over the past month, his fitness will be a significant question in a five-set format against the hardest working player on tour.
