Rain has dented the progress of the Wimbledon on Day 1 but with slight delays, many gams were able to happen. On Day 2, we’ll hope that the weather stays clear and the sun shines tall in London. Will it shine tall when Francisco Cerundolo will take on Rafael Nadal in the First Round of Wimbledon in a game that will take place on 28 June, @ 04:00 PM (+03:00 UTC). Can Francisco come up with an upset?

Cerundolo has been on the rise since the beginning of the season and his jump 42nd rank signifies that. During the Eastbourne International, Cerundolo lost in the Round of 32 against Tommy Paul in the last set. Before that in the Queen’s Club Championships, he reached the Round of 16, defeating Pedro Martinez and ultimately losing to Ryan Peniston. During the French Open, he lost in the first round, and his other Grand Slam was the Australian Open, where he lost in the first round too. Still, for someone usually figuring in Challenger tournaments, the Grand Slam success has been huge for Cerundolo.

Cerundolo has played most of his games on clay where he has an incredible 212 wins and 86 losses although it must be noted that most of these games were played in the ITF circuit against players that are not on the level of players like Nadal. He hasn’t played many games on the grass and has an overall three wins and three losses on the surface. Can Francisco pull off an upset here?

There is no doubt that Rafael Nadal’s production on the clay court has been unmatched in the current era and he has shown time and time again that even top-ranked players are going to cough it up. The impressive Spaniard has an unbelievable 91% win-record on clay!(Oh my) But then you think, oh that is it! Nadal is limited to just clay. It ain’t the case as Nadal has been raining it on the grass surfaces as he has an incredible 78% record on the grass, this dude is just unreal!

Nadal comes into the Wimbledon after beating Casper Ruud in the Final of the French in a lop-sided win. He had beaten Djokovic and Zverev earlier as well. Before that, his deepest run came during Indian Wells Masters, where he lost to Taylor Fritts in the Finals. And before that, he had won the Mexican Open. The incredible athlete also won the Australian Open, so it means that he has won the last two Grand Slams and at age 36, remains one of the top players.

Context

There is no doubt that Rafael is going to enter as the favorite here. While some experts suggest that this is not an easy match-up for the Spaniard, there is no doubt that he is going to be a handful to deal with even on surfaces other than clay. Rafael will be as hard as a match-up for Cerundolo as possible and he will be looking to cook him up in the First Round. This is why even though some experts say that this can be a long game, Rafael still holds the aces here.

Win/Loss

The bookmakers disagree with some experts and they believe that Rafael is going to cruise through this game, as Francisco has been given the odds of 13! Basically, predicting a cakewalk for Rafael.

Handicap/Total

There are some murmurs that this can be a long and grueling game but I believe Rafael will be holding the cards here. I see him grabbing the game in three straight sets and with a significant difference.
