While, at one point last year, it looked doubtful Rafael Nadal would be able to recover from his latest knee injury in time for this year’s Wimbledon tournament, the Spaniard is now heading to SW19 with a huge chance of winning his third title at the All England Club.
Nadal continued his remarkable return to the game from injury by winning his record eighth French Open crown with a comfortable straight sets victory against David Ferrer, a result that delighted
French Open betting fans. But, with the third grand slam of the year coming so soon after the French Open final, Nadal hasn’t had time to bask in the glow of his historic achievement at Roland Garros.
The world number-five admitted after his French Open triumph that he was now looking to continue his winning streak and add a third Wimbledon crown to his collection.
"My dream is just to keep doing the things that I like. It will make me happy to keep healthy and my dream is to continue like this. I'm happy to have a great team around me, family and friends, which is a very positive feeling as always,” admitted Nadal
to the tennis betting news.
"Wimbledon will be the next destination for me. The players always understand, Wimbledon for me is always a very special tournament for me and the chance to play there is always fantastic."
Nadal will again be among that big four expected to be the main contenders to the title, joining Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, and Roger Federer at the top of the bookies’ odds.
However, if you were looking at it based purely on form, it’s hard to see how anyone is going to be able to live with a Nadal who is playing as good as he ever has, despite missing seven months with injury.
