Tennis Today: Who can beat Rafael Nadal, and we get into Julia Goerge’s bed
In Tennis Today, who can beat Rafael Nadal on clay, and tennis stars show off – a lot.
What’s on the site
It’s clay court season, and there is something about the red dirt that just puts you in mind of certain players.
Two of those players from the past are Thomas Muster and Boris Becker, but both for very different reasons. With Muster, it’s because he was brilliant on clay. With Becker, it’s because he was good on clay, but never managed to win a title on the surface.
We’ve recalled one epic clash when the two met. It had everything, including some very serious allegations at the end.
Back in the present, the ATP Tour rumbles on and we have your essential betting guide for the three tournaments this week.
Rafael Nadal is playing in none of them, though, but that shouldn’t matter as he believes no one is scared to play him on clay anyway.
What’s in the news
Not a great deal, to be perfectly honest. It’s a definite slow news day and keeping an eye on our own news section will keep you nicely updated.
ESPN did a nice feature looking at who could conceivably beat Rafael Nadal on clay this year, but they didn’t seem especially hopeful on any of them!
