Raphael Nadal is the greatest tennis player of his sports gambling generation.
Of that there can be little doubt after he collected his fourth consecutive sports gambling French Open title, as most Internet gambling sites had predicted. With his most recent Grand Slam victory, not only does he establish himself as one of the all time greats on clay but he moves ever closer to taking the number one spot in the sports gambling world rankings.
Sports gambling fans have grown accustomed to seeing Nadal dominate on the red courts, especially at Roland Garros, where remarkably, he has never lost a match. And it’s not as if he’s been playing against marshmallows in the Internet gambling odds either. He’s beaten Roger Federer, the number one tennis player in the sports gambling odds world rankings and the greatest player of his generation. But against Nadal he has seemed helpless and never more so then the French Open Finals.
Although Federer does possess one victory over Nadal on clay (last year’s Internet gambling match up in the Hamburg Finals), the young Spaniard has proven to the Swiss maestro’s Kryptonite. On Sunday that edict rang true once again as the sports gambling community looked on as Nadal handed Federer the whipping of his professional career -at least since he’s held the number one spot in the sports gambling world rankings.
After a hugely exciting run-up filled with anticipation and excitement on the part of the Internet gambling community Nadal proceeded to coolly destroy Federer. In all the world’s number one won only four games and was embarrassingly held to love in the final set as Nadal cemented his position as the best player to overtake Federer in the sports gambling world rankings with a solid 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 dismantling of his rival.
As impressive as the win is, it’s represents just the tip of the ice berg of what Nadal is capable of doing in sports gambling. It’s easy to view this win in the short-term as it puts him ever closer to becoming the top ranked player in sports gambling, but on a more poignant level it sets him up as arguably the best player to ever set foot on a clay surface. And as most sports gambling fans are already contemplating, there’s absolutely no reason why he can’t make it five titles in a row next June.
