I am well acquainted with the procedure. I suppose I should have written "I am a little curious as to why gamblers are putting more money on Murray than Federer" to avoid ambiguity.

The big money (%-wise) has yet to be placed, surely, we'll see how the odds develop over time.

51 votes for Australian Open specialist and 44 votes for clay GOAT.

Seems legit.

Ferrer and Berdych? Please. Ferrer is a fluke no4. I guess you are hearing too much of the overblown dramatic comments from announcers and players talking about Ferrer's qualities and his workhorse attitude. He is a limited player at the end of the day. Berdych is not a contender on clay.

Del Potro showed in the past the potential to win over big guys on clay.
