Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer Prediction & Betting Odds - Wimbledon 2019 Picks
July 11, 2019
It’s a battle of the legends in the semi-final of the Wimbledon Men’s event on Friday afternoon, with Rafael Nadal taking on Roger Federer in a match which could potentially be an absolute classic.
The veteran pair have won 10 Wimbledon titles between them (8 titles for Federer; 2 for Nadal), but this will be the first time they have faced each other at Wimbledon since that famous 2008 final. Back then Nadal won 9-7 in the fifth set in a rain-affected final that spanned almost seven enthralling hours.
In his quarter-final, Federer beat Japan’s Kei Nishikori 4-6 6-1 6-4 6-4 to register his 100th match win at the All England Club (making him the first player in history to win 100 men’s singles matches at a single Grand Slam event).
Rafa Nadal beat Sam Querrey of the USA in straight sets – 7-5 6-2 6-2 – in the last eight. He goes into his match against the great Federer with the advantage in the head-to-head at 24-15.
