Andy Murray defeated Nadal on his home turf and on the Spaniards’ favourite surface, clay. After having won in Munich last weekend, the Scot has now reached a winning streak of nine on clay courts after defeating the reigning champion, and four-time winner in Madrid, RafaNadal. The world number three, who had never defeated the Spanish number one on clay before, has won his first Masters 1000 on the red surface in a match that lasted one and a half hours. A top tennis tipster took into consideration that this defeat has cost Rafa dearly as he dropped out of the top 5 for the first time in ten years. Nadal was looking for his third consecutive win in Madrid but has not been in the best of form of late after having been defeated in the Monte Carlo semi-final by Djokovic and in Barcelona by Fognini last month. Our tennis expert analysed the match and defined the strong start by Murray as key to his victory, after the Scot managed to win 12 out of 14 points taking himself 3-0 clear. Nadal had two break-points in the first set but failed to convert them, and again as Murray was serving 5-3 and these cost him dearly. The same can be said for the second set too where Murray pushed ahead and took full advantage of a Rafa who continued to make mistakes: “This match was a difficult one for me, “said Murray. “I played pretty well, and I am sure that Rafa will feel like he could have played better but I played my best. I am feeling very well at the moment and things off the court are rubbing onto me on the court which is great.”
A tennis betting expert will be looking carefully at the upcoming “Internazionalid’Italia in Rome” where the absolute favourite will be the Serbian and World number one NovacDjokovic, who heads into this tournament after having won his last six tournaments, Bercy, Masters in London, the Australian Open, Indian Wells, Miami andMontecarlo 2015. Nole has already won in Rome three times before and a top tennis tipster is pretty sure he will make his fourth win as Federer and Nadal don’t look strong enough to defeat the Serb. The British number Murrayone is heading out to Rome as we speak, but he is not yet sure if he will take part in the tournament as he himself declared: “I have decided to go to Rome, but I am not sure if I will take part in the tournament. I will make my mind up once I get to Italy and only after having discussed this with my coaches Amelie and Jonas.”A tennis betting expert is sure that Djokovic will triumph here in Rome even if Murray decides to take part in the tournament do you agree?
