Tomorrow will something truly amazing in the world of tennis. The Wimbledon final will be contested by a Brit; this has not happened for 70 years.
Britain already has ONE Wimbledon Champ
Yes people, the time has come to come out of the shadows. We have won Wimbledon. Albeit the Men’s Doubles but it happened.
Jonny Marray is relatively unknown even to the tennis world. The Brit has had a tough career due to some injuries and has not even won a doubles event at the challenger level. Yet, partnering Freddie Nielsen from Sweden, a truly Wimbledon miracle has occured.
Marray and Nielsen showed great poise on their way to the final with wins which including upsetting the Bryan brothers in four sets. They managed to overcome the fifth seeds in the final and truly put some pride back into Britain’s Wimbledon drought.
It can only be a great sign for Murray tomorrow.
Federer Favourite but will it be 3rd time lucky for Andy?
Andy Murray and Roger Federer have played in a grand slam final before; Federer walking off as the victor. Tomorrow will see a different Andy Murray step out on centre court. With the crowd behind him and many more years of maturity under his belt, not least having a decent coach on hand, Murray will give it his all.
Murray showed some truly great tennis in the semi-final against Tsonga. He looked so assured of himself and fought so hard, what was great to see was his ability to be tactically astute at the big times. Murray may not be the Favourite tomorrow, his best price is 7/4 by most, but he should not be overlooked.
Six-time Wimbledon champion, Roger Federer, has shown a lot of determination to get to the final. He came back from two sets down against Julian Benneteau and then found an extra gear to defeat World No. #1, Novak Djokovic, in the second round. There is no doubt he will be great tomorrow and remains the bookie favourite at 8/15 (Sky Bet and Bill Hill).
Money seems to be in Set Betting
Once again, set betting is the best price to be found. Federer to win in straight sets seems to be the bookmakers prediction. Once again, Sky Bet offer a Federer win 3-0 at 5/2. However, Fed to win 3-1 is priced at 11/4 by most while Murray to win 3-1 is also nicely priced at 11/2. The price is the same for Federer to win in 3-2 by Sky Bet and Bill Hill.
Murray to win 3-2 sits at 7/1 by Sportingbet while they also offer the best price for a Murray straight sets win, lowly priced at 9/1.
This is a very hard one to predict. I would like to recommend Murray to win but Federer has looked so good. I hope that I am wrong but I think betting on the Swiss Mastro to win in 3-1 is your best option.
The tennis should be great so enjoy!
