Murray still alive in Australian Open betting

Scot will face Serbian player Novak Djokovic on Sunday if he can get past Spanish opponent David Ferrer in Melbourne.

Friday 28th January 2011



The first of this year’s Grand Slam tennis tournaments is set to conclude this weekend from Australia and three players are still vying to be crowned as the champion of the men’s singles competition. The final of the men’s singles competition at the Australian Open is scheduled for Sunday and Novak Djokovic is being listed as the favourite after the Serbian player defeated four-time winner and last year’s champion Roger Federer in the semi-finals. Twenty-three-year-old Djokovic is being offered at odds of 3/5 by UniBet.com to repeat his 2008 triumph by winning the men’s singles competition at the Australian Open while ToteSport.com and ExtraBet.com are showing 8/13. Slightly longer, Bwin.com has the six-footer at odds of 5/8 to win his second Grand Slam title this weekend before Intertops.com with 13/20 and Bet365.com and Coral.co.uk showing 4/6. Djokovic became only the second player after Rafael Nadal to beat Federer in a major on three different occasions and goes into this weekend’s final at odds of 4/6 with SkyBet.com, Bodog.com, VictorChandler.com, 888Sport.com, BoyleSports.com, StanJames.com, BetDaq.com, SportingBet.com, PaddyPower.com, BetFred.com and BlueSq.com to emerge victorious. At the far end of the spectrum, WBX.com has Djokovic at odds of 17/25 to win the men’s singles competition in Melbourne on Sunday followed by 32RedBet.com listing 13/19 and WilliamHill.com offering 8/11. British player Andy Murray is also still alive in the competition after defeating Ukrainian competitor Alexandr Dolgopolov in the quarter-finals to set up a semi-final match-up against David Ferrer for the right to face Djokovic in the final. Glasgow-born Murray was seeded fifth in Melbourne and overcame stiff competition in the form of Karol Beck, Illya Marchenko Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and Jurgen Melzer before defeating Dolgopolov. Bwin.com has the 23-year-old Scot at odds of 13/10 to win the men’s singles competition at the Australian Open while bettors can get 11/8 at WilliamHill.com, PaddyPower.com and Coral.co.uk. Murray made it all the way to the final in Melbourne last year only to lose to Federer with VictorChandler.com offering odds of 7/5 that the 2008 US Open finalists will go one better this time around before Bet365.com, Bodog.com, SkyBet.com, ExtraBet.com, ToteSport.com, 888Sport.com, Intertops.com, BlueSq.com, BetFred.com, StanJames.com, BoyleSports.com and SportingBet.com with 6/4. Longer still, WBX.com is currently listing odds of 161/100 that Murray will win the men’s singles competition at this year’s Australian Open while 32RedBet.com has 29/18 and UniBet.com and BetDaq.com are listing 13/8. Very much an outsider, 28-year-old Ferrer is being listed as a long-shot to win this year’s title in Australia despite beating countryman Nadal in the quarter-finals. Ferrer has not made it this far in a Grand Slam since 2007 and Bodog.com has the Xabia native at odds of 9/1 to win the men’s singles competition at the Australian Open followed by WilliamHill.com, ToteSport.com and BetFred.com with 10/1. As the number seven seed, Ferrer made it to the semi-finals by defeating Jarkko Nieminen, Michael Russell, Richard Berankis and Milos Raonic before dispatching world number one Nadal. Despite these accomplishments, StanJames.com, Bet365.com, BlueSq.com, UniBet.com, 888Sport.com and Coral.co.uk has the Spaniard at odds of 11/1 to win the men’s singles competition before PaddyPower.com, Intertops.com, ExtraBet.com, BoyleSports.com and VictorChandler.com with 12/1 and Bwin.com offering 13/1. Steeper still, SkyBet.com has Ferrer at odds of 14/1 to emerge triumphant from Sunday’s final while 32RedBet.com is going for 29/2. Finally, BetDaq.com currently shows odds of 76/5 that Ferrer will win it all this weekend before WBX.com with 31/2 and SportingBet.com listing 16/1.
