ANDY MURRAY is still clinging to hope of French Open glory after a storm forced his semi-final with Novak Djokovic to be suspended on Friday.
The pair resume today with Murray 2-1 down in sets and locked at 3-3 in the fourth. The Scot looked dead and buried at after losing the first two sets but fought back superbly and the postponement came at the wrong time, halting his momentum.
Djokovic, bidding to complete the career Grand Slam, is still hot favourite to reach the final at 1-8 with Ladbrokes while Murray is 6-1 at bet365.
To win the fourth set it’s 4-9 Djokovic at Ladbrokes and 7-4 Murray and here’s hoping the Scot can complete a comeback win that would be the greatest of his career.
It’s the women’s final today and Serena Williams is struggling with flu but it’s difficult to read too much into that as it didn’t stop her battling back from a set down to oust Timea Bacsinszky in the semis.
Williams, aiming for her third French Open title, is 1-3 at Betfair while Lucie Safarova – who has yet to drop a set in the singles and is also through to the doubles final – is 5-2 at William Hill. This one could well go the distance and over 2.5 sets holds appeal at 13-8 with Paddy Power.
