I am going to cover at least two football matches in the blog today, the first of which will be posted mid afternoon.

Going to start with one of the early tennis matches from Wimbledon, the weather forecast is quite good for today, but it has just gone very dark overhead. Hope that there are not too many interuptions.


Berdych has won their three fast court meetings, with, as you might expect, Nadal winning the two on clay. The Czech player is unbeaten on grass this year and this will be tough, but Nadal looks a backable price to me.

He was well on top of Soderling until the weather intervened, I admit he was lucky to see off Youzhny, but was enjoying himself at the finish. Mentally, this is a mismatch, as Berdych is definitely the more fragile of the two, between the ears. Just get the feeling that whatever happens, Rafa will find a way to win. He was sluggish at the start yesterday, I expect the real Nadal to be on show from the off here.

5 points Nadal 1.79 Betfair.

Good Luck.
