In the current ATP season, Djokovic has gotten off to a 16-5 start with no major wins. As for Nadal though, he is leading the way with a 90.9%-win rate at a 30-3 record which includes his second Australian Open championship and his 14th French Open victory in the last 20 years. Both of which came at +400 tennis odds or more.

If the two were to cross paths in Wimbledon, it would surely come down to the wire based on their history. Djokovic is currently leading the series 30-29, however, Nadal not only won their last meeting at the French Open, but has come out on top in four of their last six meetings since 2019.
All in all, Nadal is steaming hot right now and has been taking down everyone in his path making his third shortest odds easily the most valuable of any on the board. Especially considering that he can pull off a grand slam.
