I'D love to see Andy Murray crowned Wimbledon champion on Sunday but his task is as tough as ever.

It's the match-up I tipped pre-tournament and for the last fortnight with world No.1 Novak Djokovic facing No.2 ranked Murray.

The Serb is slight favourite with the bookies at 8-13 with Paddy Power and Skybet while the Scot is 6-4 at bet365 – but for me both should be 5-6 as the it's such a close call.

Djokovic has looked the slightly more solid player until the semi-final stage when he was pushed all the way by Juan Martin del Potro. Murray was cruising until the last eight when he became the Murray of old and put us through the wringer with a nerve-wracking win against Fernando Verdasco and battling success over big-serving Jerzy Janowicz.

Murray won the last meeting of the pair on grass at Wimbledon on his way to Olympic gold and he'll take great heart from that result. But there's no doubt in my mind he'll have to be at his very best to dump Djokovic.

So instead of picking a winner the call could be to back both to win 3-2 as the match has a great chance of going five sets. Murray 3-2 pays 6-1 at bet365 and Skybet while Djokovic 3-2 is 11-2 at sportingbet.

One surprise about Murray's semi-final was he served more than double the number aces of Janowicz who had chalked up 94 going into the game. Murray has won that market four out of five times he's played Nole so on the evidence of Friday can be backed at 8-11 with Skybet.

While Murray's aces total was superb against Janowicz there is no doubt Djokovic is the most consistent server. One incredible stat flashed up in his match with del Potro was the fact he'd averaged just one double fault a match so you have to think Murray will serve more doubles than his rival and that is 4-5 at Coral.

I tipped at least one tiebreak in Murray's semi-final and there was while two were played out on Djokovic's win against Del Potro.

In 18 previous meetings the duo have played nine tiebreaks so if it goes five sets you have to imagine there would be at least one 7-6 in there. A tiebreak in the Final pays just 4-11 (various) but two or more pays 11-4 at William Hill.

    I no I said no bets until the new season but I will be making a exception and having a bet on this game. Will look into more closely later on. I agree it’s going to be close, I like that 3-2 bet with both players at nice odds

    Whatever happen to ellis mr f? Lol

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Kev, dunno. He’s been quiet since putting up details of his big wins. Maybe he’s jumped on a plane.

    Whether I invest in this particular final depends on my Irish winnings tonight. I have to say though this could be the time for Murray to end the BBC’s yearly wail about there being no British winners at Wimbledon for donkeys. It’s hard to write off Djokovic though so 3-2 either way looks the bet.

  4. thechief 7 years ago

    Djockovic to win in more than 3 sets 6/5
    Murray to win in more than 3 sets 15/8

    Obviously straight sets win sinks this bet, but I’m expecting another epic between these too.

    Good luck if your having a bet

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      bad jasper, can’t see it being straight sets, not much between the two really.

  9. Ellis 7 years ago

    Haha sorry guys I recently got a new work contract for a month which pays big bucks and I’m a student so couldn’t turn it down. Should be back n business soon and expect to him the ashes well

    Try huybrechts quickly in play 9/4

  10. Ellis 7 years ago

    Kev, to be honest you pissed me off. You clearly had it in for me and I can screenshot and email you every bet I placed from the initial £22.50to the £1357 but you went quiet and never gave me your email as you knew I wasn’t lying

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Ellis, to be fair to Kev it was quite some statement. I don’t disbelieve you but would love to know how you turned £22.50 into £1357. So just list the bets and let’s see how it was done.

  11. Ellis 7 years ago

    Mr F, can I e,ail the screenshots to you. It’s a lot of copying and pasting?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Mr F, just post details here. If you want to send screenshots as proof fair enough but I think some people would just like to see how it was done.

  12. Ellis 7 years ago

    Anyone take huybrechts 9/4 when I told you to. He won!!!

  13. paul o 7 years ago

    Strange looking back ellis claimed to have made £1257 from 12.50 now hes added another 100 notes to it lol

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      paul o, all he has to do is put up the bets and let’s see how he did it.

  14. Mr Kop 7 years ago

    Murray + 2.5 @ 5/6 , I think that’s a great price tbh, before looking in this thread my initial thoughts were to back the two score lines of 3-2 and had a wee quick lookin in hills and seen that peach.

    • Stephen Miller 7 years ago

      Mr Kop ? Murray +2.5 what games sets ? Cheers

    • Mr Kop 7 years ago

      That would be sets the + 2.5

    • Mr Kop 7 years ago

      Now it’s got me thinking tbh, is the handicap betting the +2.5 sets ?,Mr Fixit or anyone else confirm this as I’m sure the price of 5/6 is a tad high.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Mr Kop, you can have bets on games or sets handicap. Murray +2.5 at 5-6 must be games handicap as +2.5 sets will be very short.

  15. Ellis 7 years ago

    Ok your going to have to wait until I’m at my computer and can genuinely be arsed to do it

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Ellis, no worries.

    Murray to win the first set

    Goin 2 b a very close match bt it’s a fine line, it cld b 3-0 & still very tight jst depends on who wins the big pts, il b putin a punt on overs jst nt sure wat tho.

  19. MrT 7 years ago

    3-0 Djokovic in 3 close sets. Think Djokovic will edge the first. Murray has been a slow starter and will be suffering much more from nerves because of pressure on him. Once he’s a set up Djokovic will take control. Either 6-4, 6-4, 64 or maybe a tie-break in first or most likely 2nd.

  20. Ruby 7 years ago

    For the tennis betting you can bet on Murray/djokovic +2.5,3.5 and 4.5 games. I take it this will be based on the total games over the whole match. So someone could potentially win more games than their opponent and win the games bet but lose the actual match?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Ruby, that’s right, is based on total games.

  21. Ruby 7 years ago

    If I had loads of money would lump on Murray to win a set at 2/7 or there to be a tiebreak in the match at 2/5. Nothing between them IMO though I fancy djokovic to sneak it 3-1 or 3-2.

  22. James Hanly 7 years ago

    C’MON ANDY!!!

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      James, could be a long afternoon but hopefully a good one.

    Have faith Paul.

  24. James Hanly 7 years ago

    Murray 1 Set up….that’ll do nicely!

  25. James Hanly 7 years ago

    Murray 2 Sets up…even better! Let’s make Hist:-))ry

  26. James Hanly 7 years ago

    MURRAY MINTED…well done Andy

  27. pedro 7 years ago

    What price was Murray straight sets?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Pedro, great stuff by Murray. Can’t remember the straight-set price as it was the one thing I was sure it wouldn’t be.

  28. Chris D W K 7 years ago

    i was looking at bet365 before match and murray 3-0 sets
    was 8.00 (7-1) and i thought “nahhh..no way”

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Chris, don’t think anyone saw a 3-0 for either player but he played out of his skin.

    • pedro 7 years ago

      I did say to folk on nightshift last night. Couldn’t sleep when I got in so missed the start. I need to get some online accounts opened ASAP! Costing myself a fortune!!!

  29. pedro 7 years ago

    I could be wrong, but I don’t think he has ever taken a set off murray on grass. Hindsight eh?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      pedro, true but I think the only time they met on grass was the Olympics semis over three sets so couldn’t read much into that especially as Djokovic is a former Wimbledon champion.
