Dudi Sela reached the third round of Wimbledon for the second time in 13 attempts last year, but he will likely fail in matching such run this time about.

Rafa once again enjoyed his tine on the dirt confirming his class there by winning titles in Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Rome and Paris (French Open) without breaking a sweat.

Nonetheless, he decided to skip the grass-court events (much like his main rival Federer did with tournaments on the clay) as his Wimbledon preparation only included the exhibition in Hurlingham.

Rafa defeated Matthew Ebden in straight sets there before falling 0-2 to Lucas Pouille in two tight sets on Friday.

Rafael Nadal vs Dudi Sela: Head-to-head

The two players are in for their third head to head encounter here.

Rafa is yet to relinquish a set against Sela.

The Spaniard won in the third round of Australian Open in 2015 and in the second round of the Miami Masters in 2017.

Rafael Nadal vs Dudi Sela: Prediction

Dudi Sela played surprisingly well on the grass last year when he won as many as 9 out of 12 matches winning the Nottingham 2 Challenger title in the process.

However, he is miles away from his best tennis at the moment, sitting at the 129th position in the ATP standings (highest 29th).

Sela lost four of his last five matches overall even though the opposition included the less-familiar likes of Wu, Kwon, Peliwo and Ymer along the way.

Rafa should thus not have any troubles to get his Wimbledon campaign up and running with a confident straight sets win here in spite of a worrying form he showed on grass in Hurlingham.

Nadal is 1.33 to win 3-0, while you can obviously also try with the Under 29.5 games in the match at 1.83.

Alternatively, the two-time champion here at the All England Club is 1.83 to cover the seven-game handicap.
