And on his stomach too! Because in yesterday’s match against Uzbeki Dennis Istomin, World number #1, Rafael Nadal had some serious problems. He won at least, but only after a three minute time-out and three tough sets, 7-6 4-6 6-4. This of course creates some worrying signals to the Spanish fans before Wimbledon. Will Nadal’s body hold up?

It probably will, but on the other hand there is a risk it will diminish his chances of winning Wimbledon quite a bit. We will see how he does in his next match in Queens which will be against Feliciano Lopez today. I would actually consider putting some money on Lopez, but the odds is not as good as you might think for an upset (this clearly reflects Nadal’s supposed injury issues). But it might still be worth it. You get 3.15 on a Lopez win at Sportsinteraction

Betting on Lopez might also be wise as this seems to be a time for upsets as well. Roddick went out against Sela and yesterday Djokovic lost against Malisse (who is surprised by Djokovic losses anymore?). Murray was also on the ropes against Fish (like I predicted in yesterday’s post) and was down 0-3 in the third set. But he managed to climb back to 3-3 when play stopped due to darkness. Murray was angry because he didn’t think the stop necessary as it wasn’t that dark and he also thought it obvious that Fish wanted to postpone it, because he had lost the momentum. (I think there is a good chance that Fish can pull off the win today.)

So the only top player that seems to be cruising right now is Roger Federer, beating Alejandro Falla 6-2 6-1 in Halle. But today he plays Philipp Kohlschreiber so that should be more of a match for him.
