Wimbledon – Nightmare Draw For Andy?

Despite a difficult draw, Andy Murray has never been so popular with tennis punters ahead of Wimbledon. He is the 5/2 second favourite to win the tournament with William Hill, who make Djokovic the 5/4 favourite - Roger Federer is a 6/1 shot. Despite being 10th seed Rafa Nadal starts at 12/1 with French Open champion Stan Wawrinka offered at 14/1.

“Murray will be gutted when he sees the draw –it is simply as hard as it gets,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “Having said that, Murray is the second favourite for a reason and he is in great form so why can’t he win it?”
