Ricardas Berankis: Can Ricardas set the tone?
Berankis did a great job in his opening game of the Grand Slam as he opened the campaign with a 6:4 first set win against Sam Querrey. Sam posed much more resistance in the second set, making it a game, but in the end, Ricardas won 7:5. In the last set, Ricardas made it even more one-sided and came up with a 6:3 win. Sam helped Ricardas by committing seven double-faults, whereas Ricardas has 10+ points edge in terms of both service and receiving points.
Berankis entered the tournament as a 106 rank player and this is a man who has been ranked in the top 50 before. Ricardas has been a tough competitor and is busy round the year, playing in the Challenger series, and gets lots of practice throughout the year. So, he also has the experience of playing on different types of courts. However, things for him get trickier when he is up against elite players so his chances against Nadal may not be high here.Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet
Rafael Nadal: Primed for another title run?
Nadal saw fierce resistance from Francisco Cerundolo in the first game but one thing is for sure, he knows how to impose his will and force errors, which comes up with a lot of experience. Nadal took the first two sets, but whatever the scoreline suggests, Francisco was giving some strong serves and pushing Nadal in numerous ways. When Nadal lost the third set, he went into a sense of urgency and applied his laser focus to eke out the win in four sets.
Nadal has five aces compared to two by Ricardas. He had a great first serve% of 69 and won 11 points in a row at one juncture. Rafael is a handful to deal with and his experience makes it tougher for lower-ranked players to get through him. Nadal showed in the last game that even when his opponent is at his best, he is able to see through tough stretches and come at the top.
Who will win the match between Ricardas Berankis and Rafael Nadal?
We have seen some big-time upsets throughout the tournament but I doubt that Rafael is going to be caught in such a storm anytime soon. Nadal looked too composed in the last game and he is ready to go for another stellar run it seems. Ricardas is a busybody and has a lot of experience under his belt too but when you come up against Nadal, even if you are experienced, you get overwhelmed. Nadal and Ricardas have met once and that was in Melbourne where Nadal sealed the deal in straight sets.
Well, Ricardas has been given the insurmountable odds of 14.5 here as per the bookmakers of 1xbet. For them, Nadal is a clear-cut favorite with the odds of 1.03.
Will this be a long game? Can Ricardas force at least four sets or has he got more in his tank? What will be the total here? By the looks of it, Nadal can get a clear-cut win in three straight sets and I do believe. I will opt for “under”31.5 which has the odds of 1.96.Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet
