Andy Murray Preview – Can Murray stop FAA?

This is no easy match for Andy Murray as he gets his Olympic 2021 campaign underway.

Murray has tasted Olympic gold before. He won the 2012 tournament and then successfully defended four years later in Rio.

It’s going to be a massive effort from him to make it three in a row, however.

Murray is the 12/5 underdog in the match outright in Olympic tennis betting* (odds taken 23:56 GMT July 23rd 2021 from Unibet)

He made his big comeback at Wimbledon this year and he did get through a couple of rounds.

All of that was after so much time away from the game because of health problems.

There just hasn’t been the time on court needed to expect Murray to go deep in this event.

Those wins at Wimbledon were struggles for him as well, not being able to cruise past Nikoloz Basilashvili or Oscar Otte.

He was eliminated from the tournament by another young Canadian, Denis Shapovalov in the third round.

Murray failed to make any kind of impact in that match.

In the one previous meeting for Murry against Felix Auger Aliassime, he barely registered a threat.

That was in the 2020 US Open as he was defeated in straight sets in the second round.

He just had no answer to the youthful energy and power that his opponent brought to the table.

Looking at this Olympic Tennis betting, Murray could be vulnerable again.

A Felix Auger Aliassime 2-0 set betting option is at 5/6* (odds taken 23:56 GMT July 23rd 2021 from Unibet)


Felix Auger Aliassime Preview – Canadian to power through

This is the first action for Felix Auger Aliassime since his Wimbledon exit in the quarter-finals.

He is one of the top youngsters around and just has the look for a future Grand Slam champion.

This is his Olympics debut and he looks a decent proportion to get amongst the medals.

He kicks off his campaign as the 1/3 odds-on favourite in Olympic Tennis betting to beat Murray* (odds taken 23:56 GMT July 23rd 2021 from Unibet).

It was such an easy victory that he had against the British legend at last year’s US Open, that’s an understandable quote.

Auger Aliassime is ranked 15th in the world and the 20-year-old is on a 24/14 win/loss record for the year.

He’s had plenty of time to prepare for this and should be nice and fresh.

We are tempted to look under 21.5 Total Games at even money for the contest* (odds taken 23:56 GMT July 23rd 2021 from Unibet).

The young Canadian could run away with this.
