Match-Up: Will Nadal defeat Berdych in straight sets?

SI

Sunday’s Wimbledon final will be without one familiar face, seven time champ, Roger Federer. You all can thank Tomas
Berdych for R. Fed’s exit on Wednesday.

Berdych took the reigning Wimbledon champ down in four sets before knocking out the red hot third ranked Novak Djokovic in three sets. Needless to say, Berdych is playing spirited tennis and is looking for his first Wimbledon title since 2004.

His counterpart is also looking for his second Wimbledon title. Rafael Nadal, the World’s No. 2 player, took a much easier road to the finals. Nadal ousted Andy Murray in straight sets in the semi-finals.

In the pair’s previous match this year, Nadal won in two sets at the BNP Paribas Open. That match came on a hard court.

The prop asks us if Nadal will defeat Berdych in straight sets. I don’t see that happening. I can see Nadal winning the match, but don’t expect Berdych to go down easily. He’s playing too well right now.

The Pick: Any Other Result

July Record: 1-2
