With Roger Federer out of the way all of the four remaining semifinalists will be eyeing winning the coveted grass court Grand Slam title. Of those semifinalists, only Rafael Nadal has a previous Wimbledon title although Novak Djokovic did win the 2008 Australian Open and Andy Murray has made two Grand Slam finals appearances.
Nadal vs Murray is a semifinal that many might feel is actually a final and almost certainly the winner of the Nadal vs Murray semifinal will be favored in the championship match as they are the two players remaining in the field with the most backers.
Nadal has opened as the favorite to beat Murray as Boylesports have the Spaniard at -150 (2/3). Murray is priced at +140 (7/5) with Bwin although you might consider him to be better than that.
Murray and Nadal have met in 11 previous matches and they promise to meet in many more as they are both threats to go deep into draws in any tournament. Nadal holds a 7-4 record over Murray (includes an exhibition match) and they have met in four previous Grand Slams where they are each 2-2 against one another.
Despite Nadal's winning record against Murray it is important to note that it is the Scot that has the winning record in terms of their most recent matches. Murray has defeated Nadal in 4 of their last 6 matches and that includes the 2010 Australian Open and the 2008 US Open, the latter being a Grand Slam semifinal. One of Nadal's recent wins over Murray was on clay and Murray's no clay courter as his round of 16 loss at the French Open illustrated. That means Nadal is just 1 for 5 against Murray in their 5 most recent non-clay court encounters.
Also it is Murray that has better form at Wimbledon this year as he has only dropped one set while Nadal has dropped 5. Murray is performing well under intense pressure as he was down a set and a set point to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and still Murray persevered. That kind of poise is precisely what makes a Wimbledon champion and the stage is set for Murray to end a home drought in the UK.
When an underdog has both better form than the so-called favorite and a recent winning record against that favorite you generally go with with the underdog odds. Our recommendation is to back Murray to beat Nadal in the semis straight up with Boylesports at +140 (7/5).
