Friday at Wimbledon: Nadal, Djokovic, Anderson and Isner all in action
After the drama of yesterday’s Wimbledon women’s singles semi-finals, it’s the men’s turn this afternoon. And what a day of action we have in store.
First, Kevin Anderson takes on John Isner in a tasty looking appetiser. Then it’s the showstopper, as Novak Djokovic clashes with Rafael Nadal in a rematch of the 2011 Wimbledon Final.
The Spaniard has looked seriously impressive at SW19 this year and came through a difficult looking match against Juan Martin Del Potro in the quarter-final after being 2-1 down.
His record at this stage of the tournament is impeccable too. In five semi-final appearances in South London, Nadal has won them all.
Djokovic, on the other hand, has been turned over in three of his seven Wimbledon semi-final appearances.
He does, however, lead Nadal 3-2 when it comes to head-to-head encounters on this particular patch of grass. Our traders can’t separate the two tennis titans as a result.
Before that John Isner takes on Roger Federer’s conqueror, Kevin Anderson.
Both players are in uncharted territory at Wimbledon and will likely never get a better chance to make the showpiece.
Anderson has had a tougher route through to the final and overcame eight-time champion Federer in a five-set epic on Wednesday afternoon.
His opponent has dropped just three sets so far and comfortably dispatched number 13 seed Milos Raonic 3-1 in the quarter-finals.
Isner may have won his last five head-to-head matches with the South African, but all of those were over the shorter format. We can’t separate the duo in this one at 10/11 apiece.
