Andy Murray is 9-2 fourth favourite with bookmaker Coral to win Wimbledon, following his straight sets victory over Richard Gasquet. The win was good news for Coral, who have promised to refund all outright bets on the British number one if he fails to make the semi-finals at SW19.
“Andy Murray brushed Richard Gasquet aside with the minimum of fuss, but for once we were delighted to see him win, as he’s now just one more victory away from the last four, which would mean we don’t have to refund stakes on him,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
“However there is a downside, as our money back offer was extremely popular with our customers, so if Murray does go all the way, we’ll be facing a multi-million pound hammering,” added Stevens.
