We are into the semifinals of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, an exhibition event in Abu Dhabi. Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Karen Khachanov, and Kevin Anderson are all in action, and we have the top bet tips for the day, as always.
Rafael Nadal vs Kevin Anderson (Over 23.5 at 1.89 @Wakabet)
Kevin Anderson will seek to remain on course for a successful title-defense when he takes on Rafael Nadal in the semis. This should be a thrilling contest, and quite tough to call out a winner. Nadal looks the favourite, given thebhistiry between both men. But the Spaniard has not played in a competitive match since retiring in the semifinals of the US Open in semifinals, and as a result could be rusty.
Anderson will come in with his big serves and should have enough to push the world No.2. I fancy this to be a close encounter. Over 23.5 games at 1.89 is a great pick!
Novak Djokovic vs Karen Khachanov (Over 22.5 games at 1.91 @ Wakabet)
Russia’s Karen Khachanov finished the 2018 season strongly. He stunned Djokovic in the Paris Masters final in November for his first career ATP Masters 1000 title. That should give him enough confidence going into this match. However, I expect Djokovic to keep up with his great play. But with Khachanov aiming to earn more bragging rights against Djokovic and the Serb looking to perhaps, fix up the Russian, this one should turn out to be a very close encounter.
Back this to go over 22.5 games at 1.91. Good pick!
