Nadal – Djokovic Wimbledon 2011 final [Prediction]

Here we are at the end of this year’s Wimbledon tournament, one of the most prestigious tennis competitions in the world. After yesterday’s women final, we are left with only one match for today, and the most important one for most men in the audience: the final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

The two contenders have had to overcome slight injuries, and the attention here goes to Nadal, who suffered an injury in his (brilliant) semi-final tennis game against Murray. The Englishman showed an exceptional form, but unfortunately Nadal proved better in the end, and the game had to be decided in the 4th set.

On the other side, Djokovic comes after a hard-fought victory against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, the Frenchman who surprisingly (but actually not that surprisingly considering his form against Djokovic) eliminated Roger Federer. Djokovic has won seven titles over the last six months, and this includes the Australian Open. He’s just been defeated once, in the Roland Garros semi-final against Federer. On the other hand, he played Nadal four times this year, all in Masters finals, and won every time.

Today, in the Wimbledon 2011 final, Nadal will seek revenge for the four losses (and four lost title opportunities) inflicted by the Serbian. Sadly, they play on grass, which is not really Nadal’s favorite ground. But even on clay he lost twice to Djokovic, so the surface should not be an excuse today.

However this game goes down, Djokovic will become the new #1 in the ATP World Rankings, even after a Spanish victory. The sheer number of points earned by the Serbian this year are too much for Nadal’s 3 titles, regardless of his flawless Wimbledon performance. In fact, Nadal hasn’t lost a match in Wimbledon since his 2007 final defeat. From then on came a 20-game winning streak for Nadal that has yet to be stopped. Maybe by Djokovic?

My money here goes on Djokovic: he’s clearly in his best form so far, and his morale and stamina should give Nadal a very hard time. Plus, Nadal’s slight injury will be visible late in the game, in his disadvantage. I expect Djokovic to win this one, and so does SportsBlogTipster in his post here. So bet with us! I’m betting 2 units for a Djokovic victory!
