If you planned on visiting today and place some bets, we advise you to instead check the latest news and find out more about the standings in the Tennis World.

As the title suggests, today we’ll be taking a short look into Rafael Nadal’s first title of the year, at the Italian Open, where he played against Novak Djokovic in the final.

The First 6-0 in 141 Sets
Nadal Defeated Djokovic with 6-0 4-6 6-1. The opener was 39 minutes long, time in which Nadal raced with his opponent for a perfect 6-0, which is also the first 6-0 between the two after 141 previous sets.

For those that want to engage in tennis betting online, we think that most of your money should go on Rafael Nadal, given the fact that this was his ninth Italian Open title – he won it in two hours and 25 minutes.

Moreover, if you are considering ATP betting, Nadal is still your main player, so to say. The Italian Open marked his 81st tournament win, a victory that put him 34-33 ahead of his previous opponent, Novak Djokovic, in terms of the Masters 1000 Series titles.

After Defeat Comes Victory
Even though Nadal managed to overcome his opponent this time, Djokovic did beat him in January, during the Australian Open Final.

Let’s hope that the French Open will play on a bit better for Nadal, given not only the mentioned loss in the Australian Open Final but also the fact that he lost the semi-final stage in all of his past four tournaments.

A Decade Winner
Almost winner for a decade, Rafael Nadal managed to win at least one of the nine Masters 1000 events in a season since 2005 – the only exception being the year of 2015.
