Andy Murray has been sensational in 2016 and the Scot could yet sign off with another Grand Slam victory if he can continue his fine form at the US Open. The British number one swept past Lukas Rosol in his first round clash and many punters will believe that Murray, who also won the Olympic gold medal and Wimbledon title earlier this summer, could go on to claim a fourth major title in Washington.
On current form, you could argue that Murray is the best player in the world – that’s how well he is playing right now. The 29-year-old has been superb since returning to the sport after the birth of his son earlier this year and British tennis fans will be backing Murray to go on and beat arch-rival Novak Djokovic in the final Grand Slam event of the calendar year.
As of August 30th, Murray is priced at 7/4 to win the US Open and punters can find every match covered at Betway’s website. The Scot is riding high on adrenaline after defending his Olympic title in Rio de Janeiro and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see Murray lifting another pieces of silverware after the best 12 months of his career.
If nothing else, he should be very proud of his achievements – both on and off the court. In recent times, Murray has received plenty of stick for his failures on the big stage but he has now confirmed his place as one of the best players on the planet. On his day, the Scot is capable of competing against Djokovic and beating him. A couple of years ago, Murray would have been a massive underdog against his Serbian rival.
If truth be told, Djokovic is struggling for form right now and it is hard to back him at just 11/10 in Betway’s markets. The Serbian is still number one in the world rankings but Murray is closing the gap at the top. After all, the Scot has been on another level since the French Open and Djokovic just hasn’t managed to up his game. A Murray-Djokovic final would be very interesting to say the least…
Right now, it isn’t too difficult to pick a winner. Djokovic has failed to inspire confidence whilst Murry is flying and the ‘Flying Scotsman’ will be quietly confident of notching another Grand Slam crown to end 2016 on a high. He isn’t invincible but if he plays at his best, Djokovic may struggle to cope with his speed and intensity. Look no further than Andy Murray this summer – he could be on the verge of something very special…
