Rafael Nadal v Rogerio Dutra Silva
Other than his infamous defeat to Steve Darcis at Wimbledon in June, Nadal has been in tremendous form since returning from injury. Meanwhile, his Brazilian opponent has never got past the second round of a Grand Slam - and I can't believe today is going to be any different.
'Rogerinho' is more of a clay court specialist and I can see him crumbling against a ferocious Nadal, who will be in a rush to get through. Take under 125.5 minutes in this one at 1.87.
Roger Federer v Carlos Berlocq
When Roger's serve and forehand click into full flow he is still as good as ever, and he is certainly striking the ball well of late. That said, Roger stuttured a bit during his first round win over Grega Zemlja, becoming a little impatient towards the end.
However, it was still a straight sets win and I expect the same again today against the Argentine, Berlocq, who doesn't have a great record at this level. Back a quick finish here, with under 125.5 minutes at 1.87.
Bet of the day:
Today I'm going to be bold with a treble in the men's draw that will bring some nice returns.
Firstly, back Feliciano Lopez to be too strong for American youngster Brad Klahn. Add to that my countryman Ivan Dodig, who I fancy to see off the tiring Nikolay Davydenko. The final component of the treble is Janko Tipsarevic, who has never lost to his Israeli opponent Dudi Sela.
Put those three together and you'll get a nice combined price of 2.95.
