These two met in Hamburg just a couple of weeks ago and it was very close, Nadal eventually winning in 3 sets.The Aussie played really well and despite only serving at 52%, gave his opponent only 5 break points. Rafa was 76%, yet Hewitt had 12 chances to break.

Hewitt is serving much better this week and is averaging 12 aces per match. The two met here last year at exactly the same stage and although he was in much worse form at the time, his 3 wins in RG being his only on red clay for the year, he already has 11 this time round, he took a set off the Spanish superstar.

The underdog will not be scared of Rafa and will look forward to the battle. Think he will take a set and that the games will be "over". Pinnacle have set these at 33.5 games, which could go over in even 3 close sets.

4 points Nadal-Hewitt over 33.5 games 1.787 Pinnacle.
2.5 points Nadal NOT to win 3-0 sets 2.02 + Pinnacle / exchanges .


I have just seen that blog sponsors Sunderlands ,have a stand out 3.0 quote on Federer outright.

Which, I understand, they are trying to "hold" until the Nadal match starts, this can be laid at 2.88 on Betfair, so a chance to earn some money if you wish. Or simple to back the second favourite at a big price.

Good Luck.
