Murray 10/1 For French Open After Clawing Himself Back From Brink!

As the players trudged off at Roland Garros due to the impending storm, Andy Murray will know he is a lucky boy to still be in his semi-final against Novak Djokovic. Facing two break points in the third and two sets down, William Hill made Djokovic 1/100 to win the match with Murray 16/1.


With the players set to resume on Saturday, Djokovic is the 1/8 favourite to win the match with Murray 9/2.


“Murray was dead and gone but his new found resilience meant that he clawed his way back into the match and while he is massively odds against to win, stranger things have happened,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Djokovic is 1/4 to win the tournament as things stand with Stan Wawrinka 4/1 and Andy Murray 10/1.


French Open winner: 1/4 Novak Djokovic; 4/1 Stan Wawrinka; 10/1 Andy Murray


Second semi-final winner: 1/8 Djokovic; 9/2 Murray
