Every year, the tennis world witnesses incredible action on the pitch. In some matches, huge underdogs go against all odds to defeat world beaters while in some matches, the world-beaters do what they are known best for doing but they do so in such a stunning fashion that they surprise the tennis world in as much as they surprise themselves. Classic tennis matches are not just great for the spectators and punters who are able to make profits from placing live bets at NoviBet, but they are also great for upcoming tennis players who are able to learn a few things on what to do and what not to do when they are on the pitch. In light of this, we have decided to come up with a comprehensive list of the top five tennis matches that were played in 2018.

Dominic Thiem vs Rafael Nadal (US Open Quarterfinal)
Dominic Thiem and Rafael Nadal played a marathon tennis match when they met at the US Open in the quarterfinals. When it comes to team sports, there are what are termed bogey teams. Boogey teams are teams which more often than not manage to record impressive wins against a certain team (generally a high ranked team) regardless of whether the other team is n form or not. When it comes to Rafael Nadal, Dominic Thiem can be termed the Boogey opponent of Rafa as he always picks his game when the two come up against each other. In their quarterfinal tie, Rafa was only able to defeat Thiem in the sixth set even though the odds were heavily stacked in his favour.

Djokovic vs Nadal Wimbledon (Wimbledon Semifinal)
Each time these two tennis greats come face to face, they produce an electrifying match. Their meeting at the Wimbledon tournament in the semifinal stage was no different. Nadal came into the match as the firm favourite following his earlier 11th triumph at the French Open. Djokovic, on the other hand, was having a torrid time on the pitch. Nadal’s brilliant form and Djokovic’s poor form were however thrown out of the window as their match stated. The two split the first two sets and Djokovic won the third set. Owing to the 11 pm curfew at the All England Tennis Club, the match had to be suspended for the night. On the following day, Rafa won the fourth set. The fifth set was more of a marathon but Djokovic who had come into the match as an underdog against all odds managed to record an impressive victory.

Rafael Nadal vs Juan Martin del Potro (Wimbledon Quarterfinal)
Rafael Nadal came into this match knowing that a victory would ensure that he makes his first appearance at the Wimbledon semifinal since 2011. As such, the pressure was on Rafael Nadal to win the match at all costs. Things, however, did not start according to plan for Nadal; he won the first set but went on to lose the next two sets. With tensions starting to rise for both the coaches and the crowd, Nadal managed to keep his cool for the fourth and fifth sets, winning them both and qualifying for his first Wimbledon semifinal appearance since 2011.
