Bet Live: Djokovic v. Nadal, US Open FinalPublished September 9, 2013 by OCR Editor
US Open Men's Singles Final: Novak Djokovic v. Rafael Nadal, 5pm local time Monday.
The world's two best tennis players, top-ranked Novak Djokovic and second-ranked Rafael Nadal, meet for the 37 th time in their careers on one of the biggest stages Monday: the US Open Men's Singles Final at New York's Arthur Ashe Stadium, which begins 5pm local time / 10pm UK time.
No two players have such a long head-to-head record in the Open Era. Nadal leads 21-15 overall since he won their first encounter at the 2006 French Open quarter-finals. Djokovic leads 11-6 on hard courts and 3-2 in Grand Slam Finals. The two have played twice in the US Open final: Nadal won in 2010 and Djoko exacted revenge in 2011.
Despite their frequent matches, these two tennis champions have played just three times this year. Nadal won the first two matchups at the French Open and the Rogers Cup, but Djokovic had the most recent laugh when he broke Rafa's 46-match win streak at the Monte Carlo Masters.
Nadal starts the pre-match betting favorite, according to William Hill Sports. The Spaniard is 8/13 to hold the US Open trophy aloft at Flushing Meadow, while his Serb rival is 11/8. The match is expected to go down to the wire, with the odds of both players claiming at least one set being quoted at 2/5 (the odds of a straight sets win to either is 7/4).
