French Open Champion Nadal 13/2 For Wimbledon Win

Tennis Preview: French Open Champion Nadal 13/2 For Wimbledon Win

2017-06-12
A look at the updated odds for the men’s singles at Wimbledon following the French Open.

Rafael Nadal has been cut to 13/2 to win Wimbledon after completing the clay-court season with his 10th French Open title.

The Spaniard dispatched all before him to sweep to his own La Decima at Roland Garros and he is not intending to stop there.

He is the first man to win 10 titles at a single slam and, if he continues to play like this, then Margaret Court's all-time record of 11 triumphs at a major looks certain to fall. Her haul came at the Australian Open.

Nadal was at his most masterful on the stage he has made his own and needed just two hours and five minutes to beat Stan Wawrinka 6-2 6-3 6-1 in Sunday’s final.

The 31-year-old lost only 35 games in seven matches and won the title without dropping a set for the third time.

He said: “This tournament I have been playing great during the whole event since the beginning. So it has been, I think, a perfect Roland Garros for me. I'm very happy for everything.

“Today was a very important day for me. There have been some tough moments the last times, injuries, so it's great to have big success like this again.”

Nadal will be back in action in the Aegon Championships at Queen's Club in a week's time, and his success here potentially bodes well for the grass.

The only previous two times in which Nadal has won the French Open without dropping a set, in 2008 and 2010, he has gone on to win Wimbledon.

Nadal is fourth in the Wimbledon betting, with Roger Federer the 5/2 favourite ahead of Andy Murray (11/4) and Novak Djokovic (9/2).
