Rafael Nadal v Novak Djokovic in the Madrid semifinals
The 50th battle between Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic takes place on Saturday in Madrid. For the Serbian, who has lost his physical power lately, extra day of rest (due to Nishikori retirement) will mean a lot.
What is more, now the world no. 2 has no reasons to save forces and should be able aiming to show his best tennis, especially considering that on the other side of the net there will be Rafa Nadal.
Unless Djokovic plays his best battle of the year to date, he won’t have any chances to close out the match. Novak has to be aggressive and take risks. Nadal should be outplayed in the baseline rallies. Backhand wing provides many opportunities to Novak as Nadal has lately shown very poor backhand winning percentage.
David Goffin has proved it that Nadal can be attacked on clay. Physically, Djokovic should be able to survive this tough match, while mentally for Nadal it will be a great challenge, since the last time he has taken a set from Novak was in 2014.
Betting pick: The pre-match lines have no real value. Nadal is rated as a heavy favorite. We advise to bet in-play.
For those, who enjoy taking risks, Novak’s win in 2 sets for 5.3 can be an option.

Assessing Nadal vs The Field at the French Open
From the moment he appeared on courts, Kei Nishikori has always been one of 5 or 6 super talented promising players.
