BG didn't answer the question, someone else did.
I'm assuming BG likes Muzza. I've never really seen him back JWT.
Muzza has been great the last 10 days (aside from the crap he showed vs. Baggy for sets 2 and 3. Any decent player would've been up 2 sets 1), but Muzza owns JWT.
He's up 5-1 lifetime and he has 2 grass court wins over him.
Tsonga also comes into this tournament with a finger injury and some back issues against Fish. The easy work against Kohli will help and the last thing I'll say about this is that Murray is probably one of the few athletes in the world that has homecourt advantage working against him.
He was in a similar, actually identical spot against Roddick in 2009 when Roddick was probably very comparable to how Jo is playing right now. Nadal wasn't in the way since he was injured and he had to beat someone he was favored against to do so but he bombed it badly.
Bookies just have no respect for Murray at all in London
In that case, sorry for being a fucktard.
Thanks for the correction, as well as your interesting post. Disregarding the Bag Gambler-debacle entirely, I more or less agree with your stand-point. Both players are personal favorites of mine, but my breakdown is this:
If Tsonga wins, it's highly unlikely that he will do so in straights. This means the match should drag out quite a bit. Murray in good shape is the best (along with Djokovic and Nadal obviously, but you can't consider übermenschen
)) returner/defender in the world, and has much better endurance than Tsonga, in spite of the latter's impressive sheer strength. With this in mind, Tsonga's chances of victory also diminish with (match) time.
In short: He's not likely to win anytime quick, and the longer it takes the less likely he is to win in the end.
