Andy Murray vs. Novak Djokovic
Friday, August 3rd 2011, 14.45 CET
Semifinals of the Olympics – recent runner-up of the Wimbledon tournament against the not-so-long-ago no.1 in the tour.
However, Djokovic recently was sometimes quite shaky. I don’t know if he became complacent or what, but the truth is – he lost a set to Fognini, he had huge problems with Hewitt and beating Tsonga also didn’t come him without problems in 2nd set.
Murray of course is not flawless, which could be visible especially against Baghdatis, who managed to break Murray serve twice including the second time to nil, right after Murray managed to get back on even terms. Nevertheless, Andy Murray on Wimbledon has shown great spirit (epic fight with Ferrer) and some equisite skills. The crowd loves him, and even yesterday in mixed doubles match he got a lot of cheering.
H2H 8:5 to Djokovic, indicates he’s the favorite here. In last 10 matches (since 2008), 5 were won by Djokovic, 5 by Murray, and that’s how I see this match – more or less equal, with slight Djokovic advantage.
My play? I chose to go with Andy Murray for 3 units at 2.54 odds on IBCBET.
