Tennis Odds: Nadal, Djokovic Front and Center in Monte-Carlo

While there are plenty of reasons completely unrelated to ATP’s highest profile names that make betting on tennis such a captivating experience, nothing in the sport can quite top the rivalry between living legends Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

Not only are Nadal and Djokovic two of the major focal points of the tennis elite, they’re also two of the most competent clay surface competitors we’ve seen in a while. No wonder the two lead the tennis futures with 2/3 odds of winning the Monte-Carlo Masters and 13/8 odds, respectively.

While it was Djokovic who took home the 2013 title, it was Nadal who won the previous eight. Yes, eight. Though not slated to meet until the finals, there’s a distinct chance that they do exactly that. Sure, Nadal will face challenges in a side of the draw that includes countryman David Ferrer and Australian Open winner Stanislas Wawrinka, and sure, Djokovic will need to battle past the likes of Roger Federer, Tomas Berdych and dark horse speedster Fabio Fognini, but the Monte-Carlo Masters is a tournament that Nadal and Djokovic have managed to dominate for the past decade.
