Online Betting Shop: Murray admits that Fognini outplayed him
By Andrew Scott Tuesday, 22 April 2014 12:11
Andy Murray admitted that Fabio Fognini outplayed him as Great Britain missed the chance to make it to the Davis Cup’s semi-finals for the first time since 1981 – something that left many fans and online betting shops very disappointed.
Pay per head sportsbooks and online betting shops can see that Britain has a lead of 2-1 going into the last day, but with James Ward always likely to find it difficult against Andrea Seppi, who is ranked 126 places above him, hopes were pinned on the Scot to clinch a win.
Many people with a betting site were happy to see that on Saturday morning, Murray defeated Seppi in his opening singles, then later that afternoon he teamed up with Colin Fleming to win the doubles. However, online betting shops and price per head services saw that on Sunday he couldn’t make it a hat-trick of wins and lost in straight sets, 6-3 6-3 6-4 to claycourt specialist Fognini in Naples in front of a very supportive crowd.
Online betting shops saw that Ward wasn’t able to pull off a shock against Seppi, as he lost 6-4 6-3 6-4, and Italy are now moving into the semi-finals where they will take on Switzerland, and fans all over the world with a betting site can’t wait to see what will happen when they face the Swiss.
Pay per head sportsbooks know that this ends Murray’s run of 19 straight wins in Davis Cup singles – the only other rubber he didn’t win was his debut match.
He admitted: “Fabio played very well today, that’s for sure. He’s a very good player especially on this surface, so I knew it was going to be a tough one and I wasn’t able to play well enough. I did OK physically, not the best, but I’ve been worse.”
He added on the LTA website: “He played some great stuff at important periods in the match and that was the main difference.
“When I had my main opportunities I was a little bit disappointed in myself, and when he had his he was exceptional, so credit to him.”

Fognini said: “Today I just played better than Andy and that’s tennis. I was annoyed yesterday after the doubles. This was a very important victory – it’s certainly my best match in Davis Cup. I just stayed focused on my game and I managed to win.”
