Nadal cruises past Nishikori at Wimbledon

submit to reddit

Rafa Nadal got off to a great start at this year’s Wimbledon Championship, quickly despatching his 20 year old Japanese opponent Kei Nishikori 6-2 6-4 6-4. Many critics suggested that Nadal’s knee injury would affect his game so much that he had no chance of taking down the tournament this year, however Rafa seems to be back to his peak form.

Set 1 was a tough game for Nishikori. In the first game the Japanese player had a 40-0 lead, but after 6 game points Nadal converted and took the set. In the second, Nishikori seemed to be on form, displaying a strong forehand and a wicked crosscourt backhand at the net. At 4-4 Nishikori made a double fault at and Nadal managed to break him in another Set.

The third set looked easy for Nadal, who broke Nishikori’s serve early on.Nadal fell over during a break-point making it level at 3 all, but as you would expect from the recent Roland Garros Winner, Nadal’s Victory was comfortable, and perhaps a foregone conclusion.

We expect Nadal will cruise all the way to the Wimbledon 2010 Men’s Final. Our Wimbledon Odds Comparison tool will show you the best odds for every single Wimbledon Match.
