IT’S a big day at Wimbledon with Andy Murray aiming for his second title at SW19.
Murray’s only won two of his Grand Slam finals but every defeat has been against Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer so no disgrace there.
This time standing in his way is giant Canadian Milos Raonic who has reached his first final after seeing off Federer in the semis.
I’m convinced Murray will win but it’s unlikely to be easy as the bookies reckon. Raonic is in the form of his life and if he serves well he’ll be tough to break.
The big-hitter took Murray to three sets in the recent Queens final but has lost in two Grand Slam meetings with the British No.1
Most aces is a no-brainer but best you’ll get on Raonic is 1-8 and he is also favourite for most double faults at 1-4 with Winner. He’s served 28 in the tournament to Andy’s six.
It took Murray a set and a half to break Raonic at Queens and he’ll probably find it just as tough on Centre Court. A first-set tiebreak is possible at 6-4 with Coral and I like Ladbrokes‘ 11-8 for Raonic to be first to win a service game to love. He could go bang, bang, bang, bang – and that’s it.
Big mac, Johnb and others have been prolific with their Wimbledon tips so let’s see everyone’s thoughts here.
