Andy Murray warmed up for Wimbledon in fine fashion, winning at Queen’s Club for the second time in three years and the Scot’s odds to land the grass court grand slam were subsequently cut to 6/1 from 15/2 by Totesport. Ultimately the weight of expectation could hinder Murray and although he should make it to the latter stages, it’s hard to see him overcoming any of the three top seeds.
Favourite is recent French Open victor Rafael Nadal at 9/4 with Coral while Australian Open winner Novak Djokovic is chalked up at 7/2 by Paddy Power, just behind Roger Federer, a 13/5 chance at Betfred, and with Juan Martin del Potro next in the betting at 20/1 (bet365), it’s clear that bookies are looking no further than the world’s top four.
Of that quartet though, Federer is the man to follow; the Swiss ace showed that he was back to his brilliant best on his least favourite surface as he reached the final at Roland Garros and back on his preferred grass, the six-times Wimbledon champion will be difficult to stop.
Elsewhere, William Hill are betting on the stage of elimination for Murray, offering 2/1 that the Scot reaches the last four before bowing out and a tasty 4/1 that the world number four is eliminated in the quarter final while will refund all outright bets on the tournament if the 24-year-old goes all the way.
