Andy Murray Profile
Andy Murray betting form
2012 was the year that Andy Murray finally lived up to the promise he had shown on the mens’ tennis circuit for several years. Since emerging as a promising junior Murray has always been tipped to deliver at the highest level but in playing in an era of great players such as Roger Federer, Novac Djockavic and Rafael Nadal he has always been found wanting in the final. The 2012 US Open at Flushing Meadow was Murray’s nadir. On a surface which is most suited to his natural game he dominated the tournament for two weeks and triumphed to become the first Briton to win a Grand Slam singles title since 1976.
Now he has ended his wait for a first major title Andy Murray Wimbledon odds will be relatively low but will still offer good value in what is considered to be his home Grand Slam. During Wimbledon there will be a sizeable sum of bets placed for sentimental reasons as the home crowds crave their first home winner since Fred Perry in 1936. The closest they have reached in recent years is Andy Murray himself and the home press place great pressure on Murray to win his first Wimbledon. As a result Andy Murray betting is of great significance to the betting industry as it sparks huge interest if a home favourite is a genuine contender. No longer are there novelty bets placed on there being a British Wimbledon winner as it is a real possibility.
Andy Murray odds are often shortened by the sentimental betting patterns when he is competing at Wimbledon but the tournament is so rigorous played on the infrequently used grass surfaces that it often throws up surprise results. Players such as Nadal fare less well on grass but he is a former winner of the tournament. With Andy Murray once again a contender for Wimbledon and a current Grand Slam champion there will be heightened interest in his progress. Anyone fancying a flutter at Wimbledon should look out for special Andy Murray odds in the preceding Queens club tournament which is a good indicator of form.
For those seeking to go beyond the overall Wimbledon result it will be possible to bet on the number of sets Murray plays at Wimbledon or even the number of aces he serves across the tournament. The tournament this year promises to be the closest contest yet and it remains to be seen whether Murray can break his British duck.
