You should hedge if you can. Having said that, I expect Andy to win here.

Re: st petersburg final: murray vs verdasco

Nando is very dangerous, particularly if he keeps serving at 80%+. Wouldn't surprise me if he wins, especially as Muzza must be knackered by now.

Re: st petersburg final: murray vs verdasco

Murray usually does well against left handers apart from Nadal. Nando will have his moments but Murray will clinch it.

I don't have the balls to back Nando, but it wouldn't surprise me if Verasco wins.

But yeah, you have a very good point about Murray's return skills.

Verdasco is a mental midget. As good a final opponent as Andy could wish for really.

Nothing against Nando, but as I want to see Andy in Shanghai, I'm rooting for Andy!

Re: st petersburg final: murray vs verdasco

I expect a strange three set match with a lot of momentum swings between these two.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Murray to win.

However, he needs to avoid his form dropping for spells; it could result in defeat.
