Re: Betting Site: Murray Ahead of Nadal as Fav to Win Wimbledon!!

The bookies must be taking Nadal's possible unfitness into account. Murray's odds are far too short. I would love to see him win, but I won't be putting any money on it.

Re: Betting Site: Murray Ahead of Nadal as Fav to Win Wimbledon!!

They are obviously factoring in Nadal's lack of fitness. Not even the most biased British bookie would put Murray ahead of a fully fit defending champion.

Re: Betting Site: Murray Ahead of Nadal as Fav to Win Wimbledon!!

I am actually more surprised that he is not ahead of Federer too.

PAW Singles Ranking - 396
TITLES (TMS Rome 04', Rolland Garros 04', Wimbeldon 04')
RUNNER-UP (Rosmalen 04' US Open 04')

I actually think he can. He's a much improved player and certainly has what it takes to win Wimbledon. He's a No. 1 in the waiting and that might happen sooner than most think. There is still the risk of a typical Murray off-day but those happen less and less. If Nadal is fit there is very little to chose between Federer, Nadal and Murray.

that will be the saddest day in tennis history if it actually happens, but i highly highly doubt it will.

1.He sucks at slams.
2.His best result at Wimbledon so far is a QF.
3.Nadal,defending champion, will be there.
4.Only once played in slam semi final so far,equal to Soderling,Tsonga or Del Potro.

he played in the USO final last year but i agreed with what u said. his record in slams have been pathetic given he is #3.

and with the british media, bookmakers, punters, tennis fans and housewives all hyping it up in the next 2-3 weeks, he again will crumble spectacularly in front of the home crowd. no doubt about it. he is another henman or mauresmo imo.
