Andy Murray flying at Wimbledon 2015 and will now face Vasek Pospisil
We’ve reached the business end of Wimbledon 2015 and Andy Murray’s chances of claiming a second crown at SW19 have strengthened after a convincing four set victory against Ivo Karlovic on Magic Monday.
Murray successfully tamed the Karlovic power serve during the encounter, with the Brit racing into a two-set lead before the Croatian hit back, although it was short lived and the world number three came through relatively unscathed.
The fact that Murray will face Vasek Pospisil for a semi-final spot is an unexpected bonus considering that the Canadian was taken to five sets by Jamie Ward and was then a surprise winner against Viktor Troicki.
Boylesports offer a best price 11/5 about Murray winning Wimbledon 2015 although he is still likely to face Roger Federer in the semis and then Novak Djokovic in the final should he get past the next two opponents.
Djokovic has been given a scare in his fourth round match against Kevin Anderson, with the South African winning the first two sets before the reigning champion hit back by winning the next two.
Coral offer 6/4 that the Serbian retains his title and will play Marin Cilic in the quarter final should he beat Anderson.
Federer has cruised through his section of the draw and is now a best price 9/2 to claim an eighth Wimbledon title, having pushed Djokovic desperately close in the 2014 final and the betting very much suggests the winner will come from one of the top three seeds.
However, Stan Wawrinka beat David Goffin with relative ease and the French Open champion is now an 8/1 chance, with the Swiss facing Richard Gasquet for a semi-final spot.
Paddy Power offer odds of 7/5 that Murray faces Djokovic in the final, although Wawrinka could unsettle the latter at the last four stage and a final involving Stan and Andy can be backed at 7/2.
