Botic comes into this game after beating the french athlete Richard Gasquet. It wasn’t an easy win for the Dutch player at all. Richard came into the game with a lot of fire and left Botic guessing for many points. However, van de Zanchschulp has taken a liking to the grass surface and was doing an amazing job of reading the pace, thus able to counter many serves. He eked out a huge 54-35 receiving points advantage and at a point won 18 straight points.

This is the first time that the Dutch player has reached the Fourth Round of any Grand Slam. Forget the Grand Slams, this is the first time Botic has made it this far into a major tournament. This is also the first time Botic is looking comfortable on grass and has made serious headways. Overall, he has a more than respectable 50% win against the top 10 players which means that he has been getting it done for the most parts.

Rafa has been getting in the groove lately and he had his most commendable win against Lorenzo Sonego. The young Italian looked clueless against the flurry of Nadal. His service game was the best it has been throughout the tournament and this is not a promising sign for the rest of the competition. During the first set, the scintillating Spaniard had a 100% win on the first serve which clearly showcases his domination. He had a win percentage of 78% first serve and 78% on the second serve.

Rafael said that he was not completely satisfied with his effort in terms of service in the two games. He showed his full game in the last contest and has been doing a great job lately of sending effective returns. There is no doing that Nadal is looking primed to make a deep run here and if you want to bet your money on it, then you can go ahead and do it. Because to me it feels like he is only going to get better.

Context

Nadal is one of the unstoppable forces in the world and he has given a lot to the tennis world. Comparatively, Botic has been still an amateur compared to Rafa and he is still learning to go deep into the major tournament, this year being his best by far. Nadal and Botic have met once and in the last meeting which was during the last Grand Slam caled French Open, where Rafael won 6-3, 6-2, 6-4. Can Botic exact revenge? Unlikely.

Win/Loss Betting

As per 1xBet, Botic stands a slim chance with the odds of 6.3 and Rafa is the overwhelming favorite with the odds of 1.15. This is surely a fair assessment of things.

Total Games

Will this game last three sets, four sets, or five sets? There is a sense that Rafael can dismiss matters early but Botic has been fighting well in the tournament and it is clear that things are looking tricky. That’s why a bet “under” 33.5 can be a safe bet which has the odds of 1.96.
