<div><h2>Dominic Thiem (4) vs. Rafael Nadal (2)</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Thiem - Nadal Betting Odds"><strong>Sunday, June 9, Paris</strong></a></p><p>Dominic Thiem advanced to his second consecutive final at Roland Garros after a 6-2, 3-6, 7-5, 5-7, 7-5 win over world No.1 Novak Djokovic in four hours and 13 minutes. The 25-year-old Austrian failed to convert two match points when serving at 5-3 in the fifth and things didn’t look good for him. Nevertheless, Thiem managed to hold his nerves and play his best tennis after to become the first Austrian player to make multiple Grand Slam finals.</p><p>Thiem will next take on 11-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal on Sunday in a repeat of last year’s final. Nadal continued his quest for a record-extending 12th title in Paris on Friday with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 victory against his long-time rival Roger Federer in two hours and 25 minutes. The world No.2 overcame tough weather conditions to beat Federer for the first time since 2014 and improve his record in Roland Garros to 92-2.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the 13th time in their careers. Nadal leads 8-4 in their head-to-head but Thiem emerged victorious in their most recent encounter at the Barcelona Open in April.</p><p>Looking now at the odds for this contest, Nadal is the undeniable favourite to win the title <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 &amp; Start Playing Today!">at 11/50 (1.22) with Bet365</a>. Thiem will have less than 24 hours to recover from his epic match with Djokovic and fatigue may play a part in how he performs this Sunday. However, the Austrian is an incredible athlete and one of the only two players to have beaten Nadal four times on clay. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Thiem’s +2.5 Set Handicap to your <a href="" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a> at 17/25 (1.68) with Pinnacle.</p><p><strong>Best Bet: Dominic Thiem +2.5 Set Handicap at 17/50 (1.68) at <a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a></strong></p></div>
