Nadal vs Djokovic final again; this time on grass

The 125th edition of the prestigious Wimbledon Championships will see the top two ranked players clash again at a final. Nadal and Djokovic have set up a meeting at the finals which somehow become a rather usual event suddenly, if I can put it that way. After being defeated by Djokovic in two previous finals on clay, Nadal would like to beat Djokovic this time around to set matters straight.

Rafael Nadal, in the semi-finals against Andy Murray, initially was not playing his best tennis making a large amount of unforced errors. This meant that the Brit was in control of the first game as he took the first set into a tie break. Even in the tie break, Nadal looked more tamed gifting away points to Murray who ended winning the first set. Last year, Murray lost to Nadal at the same stage in straight sets. This time Murray seemed to have a upper hands of the preceding on the court. But then, soon Nadal started climbing back up as he took the next set 6-2. Continuing his run, Nadal went on to win the next two sets, 6-2, 6-4 to end Murray’s and Britain’s dream of having a Brit win the Wimbledon title this year.

In the other semi-finals Tsonga was beaten by Djokovic, sending himself into his first ever Wimbledon final. With this, Djokovic has enough points now which would see him replace Nadal as World No.1 ranking in the ATP after the tournament ends, irrespective of the result in the final match. Tsonga, the 12th seeded player in the tournament, who in the quarterfinals knocked out Roger Fedrer, didn’t look like causing much trouble. Even as the first set went into a tie breaker, Djokovic looked in complete control winning the first two sets, 7-6(tie break 7-4) and 6-2. The third set too reached a decisive tie breaker where Djokovic for once had a match point but lost it. Tsonga went on to make the third set his own taking it 11-9.

In the match lasting just over three hours, Djokovic by winning the fourth set rather easily, 6-3 marked his first ever appearance in the Wimbledon finals and in the process has set up a repeat of the final with his old rival Rafael Nadal, this time on grass. It will be an interesting contest to see who emerges victorious in the final on Sunday.
