Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal clash in the Wimbledon semi finals for the second year running, Andy Murray Betdaq’s 2.88 (15/8) outsider to get revenge and progress to his first Wibledon final. It’s the third consecutive year the Scot has reached this stage and he hasn’t looked in better shape.
Rafa Nadal stands in his way and Sportingbet put 8/15 on him to win and it’s the Spaniard who can come through, but not without a protracted battle.
Both players carry potential injuries into the game; Nadal has a well publicised foot problem and Murray has picked up a hip scare. Nadal showed his class at times against Fish but it’s his lapses that have been evident this year that could let Murray in. A 5 set slog, irresepctive of winner, is certainly tempting at 11/4 with Skybet.
With a long game in mind, 3-2 to Nadal is worth considering (6/1, Skybet) while those backing games should look at Paddy Power’s 5/6 for over 39.5 games; this would be covered by a 5 setter and if only 4 sets were played, an average of 10 games a set would need to be contested.
