Rafael Nadal (3) has made it to the Quarter Finals, but faces a tough competitor in Tomas Berdych (7). Live In-Play markets beginning at 00:00 (UK).
Rafael Nadal has had the spotlight in his eyes for much of the Australian Open. He has been modest and almost worrisome regarding his chances to take home his second title down under, but is still playing very well, once he gets in his groove. Tonight, Nadal will face Tomas Berdych, the Czech tennis star in the first of the Australian Open Quarter Finals.
Rafael and Berdych have met 21 times throughout their respective careers and the Spaniard has the upper-hand on the Czech 18-3. He has actually won 17 in a row, but Nadal has stated that history means nothing ahead of tonight’s match. 'It doesn't matter what happened in the past. It is a different story this time,' Nadal said.
Tomas Berdych sent hometown hopeful, Bernard Tomic packing after his Round 4 win 6-2 7-6 (7-3) 6-2 on Sunday. Berdych played a strong game in the first and last sets showing that he deserves to be in the Quarter Finals and could upset Nadal at Ron Laver Arena.
Keys to Australian Open Victory
Both players will need to play a very hard first set to set the pace. When Nadal is on his game, he is lightning fast and hits the ball with force and accuracy, which many players simply can’t keep up with. Berdych needs to try and tire the already struggling Nadal out and have him play long sets. First serve is a major key to victory especially on the Aussie hard court.
