FOR the first time in the Open era William Hill are odds on a British male will reach the Wimbledon final and go 9-2 Andy Murray lifts the trophy on Sunday night.

The Scot is 1-2 to beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Friday's semi-final with Novak Djokovic 2-5 to join him in the Final.

Coral have eased Murray from 7-2 to 4-1 after his energy-sapping four-set defeat of David Ferrer.

They make defending champion Djokovic 4-6 while his semi-final opponent, six-time champion Roger Federer is 7-2.

Scottish bookies McBookie.com make Murray 9-2 to win Wimbledon after starting the tournament at 14-1. A first Grand Slam success will cost the bookies a multi-million pound pay out.

McBookie.com spokesman Paul Petrie said: “Scotland is about to be hit by Murraymania with Andy on the verge of history. Although the odds are still against him he will be the favourite to make the Final and then anything can happen.”

The firm go 8-11 Djokovic, 7-2 Federer, 9-2 Murray and 10-1 Tsonga.

Meanwhile, Serena Williams is the even money favourite with William Hill to lift the women's title ahead of her semi-final opponent Victoria Azarenka (
9-4
). German Angelique Kerber is 9-2 with Pole Agnieszka Radwanska the 6-1 outsider.

I can't see past Williams who is 4-7 (various) to beat Azarenka today. It won't be easy though against a player battling to be world No.1 and I can see this going to three sets (11-8, BetVictor) with the American winning 2-1 (10-3, sportingbet).

Kerber v Rawanska is tougher to call. I backed the Pole each-way earlier in the tournament but Kerber was more impressive in the quarter-finals as she easily disposed of Sabine Lisicki. I reckon the German, 4-6 with Ladbrokes and Paddy Power, is the better bet.

Radwanska is 13-10 at bet365 and again it could go all the way (23-20, bodog). Kerber is 10-3 at Betfred to win in three sets.

Recommendations

2-1 Williams
(10-3, sportingbet)

2-1 Kerber
(10-3, Betfred)

    ‘easily defeated Lisicki’. SInce when has 7-5 in the 3rd been easy. Get your facts right!

      Tony, I watched the game and Lisicki to me never looked like she would win. In my mind Kerber was an easy winner even if the result didn’t show it.

    Got two doubles on. 2-0 serena with 3 sets in kerber game just under 4/1. 2-1 kerber with 3 sets in serena game about 11/2.

    She (Kerber)was actually very disappointing in her quarter final hence why i backed Razwanka today!! Only got 6/5 though at Hills.

      Gerry, Kerber played well in the quarters and beat Lisicki very comfortably. I thought she might win today but having backed Radwanska each way last week I’m not too disappointed.

    Managed to claw a bit back by taking serena 2-0 single. Tomorrow im thinking 3-1 murray and 3-1 djokovic, two singles and double.
