Wimbledon Semifinals

91-44-6 on tennis in 2018 up 42.63 units

41-46 on tennis in 2019 down 30.39 units

If I lose my Nadal bet today I’m done on tennis until next year, but it won’t lose so don’t worry all 26 of you loyal readers. GOAT Status in tennis is on the line. Federer has 20 Major titles. Djokovic has 15 Major titles. Nadal has 18 Major titles. The winner of the 40th meeting between Federer and Nadal will most likely play Djokovic in the final. It doesn’t get better than this. I’m pumped for tomorrow’s matches. Can Ya’ll believe Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, wore jeans to Wimbledon? #NotMyDuchess People get way too worked up about stuff haha. I mean the short little Bagel Guy’s fight is the epitome of that.

Roger Federer has never beat both Rafa and Djokovic in the same major before… now is his chance

Nadal -2 at -106 for 12 units. Rafa has dropped 1 set here at Wimbledon so far (Krygios), while Federer has dropped 2 (Nishikori and George Harris). These guys have met 39 times, so there are not many surprises to be had. Nadal wants to play to Federer’s backhand in the long rallies, and Federer wants to get around to his forehand as much as possible. Federer and Nadal have been going at it since Federer was in Gillette commercials with Tiger Woods before Tiger went all Denny’s waitress on us (over 15 years of matches between these two).

The grass is playing slow, which helps Rafa a smidge. Rafa won the last meeting (on clay). Nadal just beat Sam Querrey, who was serving amazingly in this tournament, easily. The Spaniard has been doing the things he needs to beat Roger. Federer looked good against Nishikori, but he still dropped a set. Nadal will take advantage of Federer’s backhand and even the Wimbledon H2H at 2-2. 3 sets to 1 for Nadal is my prediction. Also, Federer hasn’t been able to find the aces this year at Wimbledon like he has in year’s past.. those free points will be missed against Rafa. Furthermore, If you believe that sports are rigged (cough NBA cough), the US Open would have even more intrigue if Rafa can get his 19th title and be 1 short of Federer going into that tournament..

Djokovic Sets -2½ at -140 for 3 units. RBA doesn’t have match of a chance against the World #1 today IMO. Bautista-Agut looked shaky in his 3rd set against Pella. That is not a good sign going against the always in-form Djokovic. RBA has won twice against Djokovic this year, but I don’t see it happening on this stage.
