Andy Murray 2015 French Open Betting Odds Keep Plummeting

Andy Murray 2015 French Open Betting Odds Keep Plummeting

Being a sure thing is great for your tennis rankings like Andy Murray, but it’s causing the betting odds on him for the 2015 French Open to drop and drop. Once the British tennis star hit the clay, odds were pretty high, but after his surprising back to back wins, they’ve dumped by nearly half now. After he beat somewhat favorite Rafael Nadal at the 2015 Madrid Open, everything went into freefall.

Having never previously won a clay-court title, the Scot secured his second successive victory on the red dirt as he beat Rafael Nadal 6-3 6-2 in Sunday’s Madrid Masters final.

That win also represented his first over the ‘King of Clay’ on the surface and saw his French Open odds tumble to 8/1, having been as long as 25/1 before his nine-match winning run.

Murray has leapfrogged Roger Federer and Kei Nishikori, who he beat in the semi-final in Madrid, in the betting, while Nadal has drifted out to 3/1.

The Spaniard has endured a well below-par campaign, with his only title coming at the 250 event in Buenos Aires, and has slipped down to seventh in the world rankings.

That fall means he could face world no 1 Novak Djokovic as early as the quarter-finals as he looks to land an unprecedented 10th title in the French capital.

Djokovic is marginally odds-on to win the season’s second Grand Slam at 10/11, having already won the Australian Open and three Masters title before sitting out Madrid.

He is also considered clear favourite for the Rome Masters this week, where 17 of the ATP’s top 20 players will be in attendance as they look to head to Paris in top form.

Many bookers are saying: “There’s no doubt that Djokovic and Nadal are the men to beat at the French Open but Murray is considered the most likely candidate to stop them following his impressive run.

“Djokovic is now rated a tougher opponent for the Scot, even on clay, given his seven successive defeats, but his odds are only likely to really tumble again if he can avoid both in the draw.

“It will be interesting to see how seriously Murray takes Rome given his gruelling schedule, especially given the French Open is the most physically demanding event on the calendar.”
