RAFAEL NADAL could well be one of the best 4-6 shots in the history of tennis – that’s if he wins the Shanghai Masters.

The only problem is, he won’t

One the face of it, the 4-6 about the balloon-biceped Spaniard looks a very tempting proposition.

This is a man who has won his last 16 matches, a man who holds a 23-14 head-to-head record over arch-rival Roger Federer.

Of course, we all know statistics can be manipulated and moulded to fit any argument you’re pushing. They’re handy like that.

But Roger Federer has won the last four times the pair have met and looked in imperious form in his semi-final against Juan Martin Del Potro.

Both players are performing as well as ever but the surface probably suits Federer the better.

It’s playing fast and Federer is still the best shot maker in the game, even at the advanced age of 36. I expect him to take the game to Nadal and dictate the rallies.

We advise buying Federer at 11.75 with Spreadex Sport.


If the Swiss maestro wins the market makes up at 25 so you will win 13.25 times your stake. If you lose, you will be 11.75 times your stake.

Be lucky – and only bet what you can afford.
