The Scot eased through to the quarter finals in straight sets to set up a clash with another French opponent, Jeremy Chardy and he’s just 1/25 at Coral to prevail in that clash.
If Murray does reach the final, Coral quote 11/8 that it will be world number one Novak Djokovic he will face while the world number three is now 9/4 to win the tournament and the defending champion remains odds-on at 5/6 (Coral) despite his marathon contest with Stan Wawrinka.
“Chardy beat Murray on hard court the last time they met but we believe that the Scotsman’s determination will see him through to the semi-final and indeed the final itself”, Nicola McGeady, Coral PR Manager told Betrescue.
“However, it looks like he will have to encounter Novak Djokovic once more and should they meet, another gruelling match will definitely be on the cards”, she added.
