FRENCH OPEN TENNIS ..........
MEN'S FINAL RAFAEL NADAL - ROGER FEDERER
Rafa - Fedex #17, in a rivalry that is set to run and run .Nadal leads 10-6, 8-1 on clay, but only two of those wins have come in straight sets.There are signs that Federer is getting a little closer on dirt, but probably not close enough. However, in three meetings at Roland Garros, he has taken a set each time and I see no reason why he cannot do likewise today.They have met twice this year, at Monte Carlo, Rafa won 7-5, 7-5 and at Hamburg, he avenged last years loss 7-5, 6-7, 6-3.
Therefore, Federer has taken at least 5 games in four of the last five sets.There are some fancy odds for Nadal to win the first set, yet lose 5+ games and ,in addition to my set betting, I am going to take a little on those.
4.5 points Nadal to win 3-1 sets 3.50 exchanges.
1.5 points Nadal to win 3-2 sets 7.20 exchanges.
First set correct score
1 point Nadal to win 7-5 12.0 general quote ..... 13.0 Stan James.
1 point Nadal to win 7-6 8.50 Hills/ Blue Square.
