THE waiting is almost over for the first tennis Grand Slam of the year and William Hill are starting to see a move for Andy Murray to emerge triumphant at the Australia Open.
The Scot is now 7-1, having been 8-1. Novak Djokovic is the 10-11 favourite with Roger Federer 13-2 and Rafa Nadal a 7-1 shot.
The event gets under way on Monday and William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: “There have been some fairly indifferent performances this year, particularly by Nadal and Djokovic. As a result we have seen a move for Murray, who is looking in good form.”
William Hill make Murray 4-9 to win no Grand Slams in 2005, he’s 15-8 for one, 11-1 for two, 100-1 for three and 500-1 for four.
Snooker superstar Ronnie O’Sullivan equalled Stephen Hendry’s career record of 775 centuries yesterday with two tons in his 6-4 win over Ricky Walden at the Masters.
Today it’s John Higgins (6-4, bet365) against Mark Allen (8-13, Boylesports) followed by Ding Junhui (2-5, Paddy Power) taking on Joe Perry, the 9-4 underdog with Ladbrokes.
