Tennis Betting

This should be another easy match for Andy Murray as he marches on in the defence of his Wimbledon crown. That’s two matches down for him so far and no-dropped sets so it has been drama-free and that’s just what he needs. Murray needs to get through these opening rounds as quickly possible in terms of sets played, because that will strengthen his position during the second week when extra energy levels are going to be need.

On Friday he takes on Italian Fabio Fognini in the third round and the head to head between the two of them is dead even with three wins each. Murray is ranked number one in the world of course at the moment, and would stay there as long he reaches the Final of Wimbledon, while Fognini is down at 29th in the world. So the head to head standing even as it is, makes this interesting and the two have met already this season.

Andy Murray v Fabio Fognini Betting Odds

Andy Murray 1/20, Fabio Fognini 10/1

At the ATP World Thur Masters 1000 Rome Fognini ran out straight sets winner over Murray on the clay. Before that, Murray got past the Italian on his way to winning the Gold at the Rio Olympic Games last year. This will be the first time that the two have met on grass and that should hand a huge advantage for the British number one in this one.

The Italian has never been past the third round of Wimbledon before and he is carrying a 17/13 win/loss record this season. As for Murray, he is 21/9 for the year and you can take a price of 4/11 at bet365 on Murray winning 3-0 in setting betting while you have 3/1 on the 3-1 victory for the world number one. Realistically, you would expect Murray to win this at something of a canter really because Fognini doesn’t stack up well against the big guns in the game.
