ATP Shanghai: Del Potro J.M. - Haas T. @1.50 10/10
ATP Shanghai: Nishikori K. - Tsonga J-W. @1.60 8/10
ATP Shanghai:Monfils G. - Federer R. -1.5 sets @2.12 8/10
WTA Tokyo: Mladenovic K. - Zheng J. @1.62 Sportingbet 9/10
Del Potro leads 5-0 in mutual matches and Haas has never get even a set! Haas is only a shadow from past and Del Potro should take an easy win over 35 years old German.
Nishikori has amazingly beaten Tsonga three times, but now I think it´s time to "The Muhammed Ali of Tennis" take a revenge!
Fed-Ex is not the player he used to be,but he is obligated to take an easy win over unstable French Fakir!
Mladeovic is better on indoors and Zheng is more than capable to beat her in this a little bit slower surface in Tokyo!
Nadal -147 (@1.68 EU)
Nadal is the King of the Clay! Many experts have regarded him as the greatest clay courter in history. Rafa has won the title here 7 times. He has suffered from many injuries and was aside
over 6 months last season due to knee injury. This season 36-2 loosing to Zeballos on the opening tournament in Vina del Mar on February and to Djokovic in Monte Carlo about seven weeks ago. Since Monte Nadal has won three titles on red clay and has lost only 3 sets in 15 matches. Here he has struggle a little bit, but has taken three straight wins in a row and been very solid.
Djokovic is also one of the most talent players in history. Nole has won only 8 titles on red clay and last year was his first final here. This season only 13-2 on red clay loosing to Dimitrov and Berdych. Here he has lost only a set to Kohlschreiber on the 4th round.
2H2 is 15-19 to Rafa, but the Spaniard leads 12-3 on red clay and won three mutual matches in a row before Monte. Rafa is more versatile player and has more weapons on red clay.
He should take this, but maybe just after 4-5 sets battle!
Ferrer -143 (@1.70 EU)
Ferrer is one the best clay courters. David has won 10 ATP titles on red clay and this is his third time in a row in semis. This season 21-5 on red clay loosing to Wawrinka and twice to Nadal. Here Ferru has been very impressive without loosing a set.
Tsonga is very powerfull player with very strong serve. "The Muhammed Ali of Tennis" has taken 10 ATP titles, but all in harder surfaces. Red clay is his weakest surface and this hist first semifinal here. Tsonga has also not lost a set here and did beat 3-0 Federer in QFinals.
2H2 is 3-1 to Ferrer and he also won only clay match back in 2010 in Rome.
Tsonga is a bomb server, but Ferru is one the best returners. Besides Tsonga has a lot of pressure playing in front of the very demanding home audience. He has said that he can´t believe that he will see the French champion in Roland Garros just because the pressure! T
he Spaniard should take this maybe even very close three sets!
