Rafael Nadal - Roland Garros OddsRafael Nadal will play against Austrian Jurgen Melzer the first of two victories that set it apart from Roland Garros odds back in this all that lost last year on the same stage.

If last year's unexpected defeat in the second tennis betting round left him without the number one and plunged into the most difficult season of his career, the four-Spanish could end on Sunday again at the top of world tennis and fifth Cup in his arms, only one less than the legendary Bjorn Borg.

The ironies of fate do not end there: it was the Swede Robin Soderling, Nadal executioner in 2009, he opened the door on this issue number one (defeating Roger Federer in the quarterfinals) and could offer a rematch in the end, if in the other semi-final defeats to Czech Tomas Berdych before.

But Nadal does not like to "talk about revenge." Neither the number one "is there, but my most important goal is the tournament, not number one. For that is all year round. Roland Garros is one year to another. "

So their main concern is Melzer. "I've seen him play very well against David (Ferrer)," he said after getting into the semifinals. "I've seen him play well (against Novak Djokovic). A priori it may seem a surprise that is in the semifinals, but if it is because he deserves it. "

The twenty-second favorite is, in fact, a casual invitation to the group of four.

On the way to the semifinals left behind an inspired David Ferrer, the amazing Russian Teimuraz Gabashvili (which had not dropped a set in the tournament) and Djokovic, world number three, after a spectacular comeback that began when she had lost the first two sets and was 2-0 down in the third.

The Austrian has also benefited from a tournament played in good part with rain or high humidity, conditions conducive to players with the plane hit and direct (a quality shared by three of the four semifinalists, if you include Soderling and Berdych).

Nadal won two matches so far he played with Melzer. The Austrian was unable to steal a set and never took only eight games in all the two parties.

A lack of consecration in the final, while Spanish clung to the gains that have already closed so far this tournament. "I'm going out with the number two here, whatever happens. If we talk of the rivals we consider direct, Federer, (Andy) Murray and Djokovic, I have better results than them all. "

Not the only success of Nadal. With his victory in the second tennis betting odds round, scored 200 wins on clay and completed the round of quarterfinals, is the leader in points scored this year, with 4950 (up from 3195 to Federer).

Nada lhas the most semifinals at Roland Garros, if he beats Melzer, will also have more victories, 37. The only defeat suffered so far in the tournament, the eighth of 2009 with Soderling, you may find other relief on Sunday.
