It’s been an up and down 24 months for Spanish tennis betting phenom Raphael Nadal since winning his first Wimbledon betting title in 2008.
He’s seen his stature as a tennis betting pro climb to #1 in the world rankings and claims three of the four Grand Slam titles in tennis betting. But he’s also injuries derail his quest to become one of the best players ever and even hitting a low point last summer when he was a non-factor in the 2009 Wimbledon odds.
But Nadal is still a young man with plenty of tennis betting action ahead, including the upcoming Wimbledon betting action. Coming off yet another terrific French Open performance in which he beat the best players in tennis betting to claim his fifth title at Roland Garros he’s looking in fine form as he heads to the Wimbledon odds competition.
In fact, Nadal is playing as well as he has since he was the #1 player in the world and appears to be free of any of the nagging injuries that have slowed him in the past. And if the does happen to win the Wimbledon betting competition he’ll be rewarded with the #1 ranking once again, exactly 24 months after first earning that tennis betting privilege.
But Nadal is hardly a sure thing in the Wimbledon odds action as there are plenty of excellent players out there and grass is not exactly the Spaniards surface of choice. In fact, grass is the fastest surface in tennis betting and Nadal is at his best the slower the surface as his superior fitness and baseline game give him a major advantage. Current world #1 and the greatest player in tennis and Wimbledon betting history will be looking to claim his record tying 7th overall Wimbledon odds title.
And most of the online betting sites like Federer’s chances no matter how well Nadal may be playing at the moment. Federer has won 6 of the last 7 Wimbledon betting titles (including 5 straight) and is one the best grass players the world has ever seen.
But the only man to have beaten Federer at Wimbledon in the past 8 years is none other than Raphael Nadal. Nadal certainly has the talent and the know how to beat Federer but chances are the Swiss maestro wins this matchup.
