ANDY MURRAY’S career-best winning streak was halted by Marin Cilic in the Cincinnati Masters Final and the Scot now has a week to recharge his batteries ahead of the US Open.
Murray, who won 22 matches on the bounce before crashing to the big Croat, has enjoyed a stellar season with Wimbledon and Olympic glory as well as reaching the French and Australian Open Finals.
He’s second favourite to land his second his US Open title at 68-29 with Marathonbet while world No.1 Novak Djokovic – who has been struggling with a wrist injury – tops the betting at evens with the likes of Ladbrokes and Coral.
Other contenders include Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic (16-1, Ladbrokes) and Juan Martin del Potro, who pushed Murray all the way in the Olympic final and is 25-1 at bwin.
Today’s sporting schedule features ATP and WTA tennis – minus most of the big names – and the Vuelta a Espana cycling hits stage four plus there’s plenty of Major League Baseball matches.
