Andy Murray v Rafael Nadal is the big semi final line up for ATP Sony Ericsson Open Tennis betting. There has been some thrilling action from Miami in both the men’s and women’s draws, and Andy Murray is right there on the threshold of winning his second Sony Ericsson title. Murray battled back from a set down against Janko Tipsarevic in the quarter final, which moved him on to a 17-3 match record for the season. Standing in his immediate way is former world number one Rafael Nadal, who also had a quarter final battle on his hands, needing three sets to see of the tough challenge of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. So this sets up some Andy Murray v Rafael Nadal tennis betting for your pleasure, and where better to look than in the head to head stats.
Nadal actually leads the head to head against Murray 13-5, and was a thorn in the Scotsman’s side for most of last season. Nadal beat Murray in three of the four Grand Slam finals. There was four wins in total for Nadal over Murray in 2011, but Murray hit back in the Final of Tokyo last year, which Murray came back from a set down to take the title there. Murray already has a title under his belt this season, winning in Brisbane, and looks a much more mature player this season. It hasn’t been that challenging of a time in Miami for Murray, with a walkover against Milos Raonic in the third round and a comfortable win over Alejandro Falla in the second round. Nadal too, wasn’t really pushed until the quarters, and Murray v Nadal betting could genuinely swing either way at the moment. In the other semi final, Novak Dkjokovic squares off against David Ferrer.
