Murray set betting odds of 10/3 to beat Simon 2-1
Andy Murray continued his quest to chase down Novak Djokovic at the top of the ATP world rankings, by seeing off Slovakia’s Martin Klizan in the first round of the Vienna Open.
The superstar Scotsman now takes on Gilles Simon for a place in the quarters against John Isner, and it is from this match that Coral have picked out their latest bet of the day.
Murray set betting odds of 10/3 say that he can beat his French opponent 2-1, so read on to find out why this price is too tasty not to take…
With Djokovic sitting out of this event, Murray decided to enter the Vienna Open, which he won the last time he took part in 2014, as he is potentially just two tournaments away from being world number one for the first time in his career.
Murray has ATP top spot in his sights
The Scot was momentarily halted by first opponent Klizan, who claimed the second set in a tie-break, but he eventually took the decider 6-0.
Up next is Simon, a man who has a terrible record against Murray having lost 15 of their 17 meetings.
However, the Frenchman has claimed at least a set in four of his last six head-to-heads with Murray and, after his 6-4 7-5 triumph over Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, is more than capable of doing so again – albeit in a loss.
