Tennis Betting: Djokovic warns Nadal that he will not give up his ranking
By Andrew Scott Tuesday, 8 October 2013 02:45
Rafael Nadal was warned by Novak Djokovic that he will not give up his world No 1 ranking without a putting up a fight, and tennis betting fans would like to see what will happen on the court this time around.
Price per head sportsbooks know that the players will headline the men’s draw at the ATP China Open, and tennis betting fans wonder if the Serb will keep his title in Beijing.
But pay per head services learned that the Spaniard is only 260 ranking points behind Djokovic and with a good week he could replace him for the first time since July 2011.
The Spaniard who makes great tennis odds was in excellent form since he returned to action from a seven-month injury break, winning 10 titles in the process, which include a record eighth French Open crown before he defeated Djokovic earlier this month in the US Open’s final.
Tennis betting fans saw that Djokovic did acknowledge that the world No 2 has had a better season, but believes that he can reproduce the form which saw him undefeated in three visits to Beijing, after wins in 2009, 2010 and when he defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga last year with very good tennis odds.
“As long as there is a chance, I will fight for that top spot,” said the six-time Grand Slam champion.
“But, again, with no doubt he has the best results this year. This year he’s been the best player in the world. I have been having ups and downs throughout this year. But still it was a quite good season for me, but it’s not over.
“I want to focus on this week’s China Open because this is where I traditionally play well, and I would like to have another successful week.”
