Tennis Betting: Murray had frustrating clash with Mayer
By Andrew Scott Tuesday, 3 September 2013 01:20
Andy Murray said that he had to be careful not to feel frustrated during his match with Leonardo Mayer in the US Open’s second round. Tennis betting fans could see that this was no easy game for the Scot.
Pay per head sportsbooks saw that the defending champion who makes very good tennis odds had to work very hard for a 7-5 6-1 3-6 6-1 victory over the Argentinian player, who at 81 is ranked 78 places below the Scot.
Mayer’s forehand proved to be a very powerful weapon and tennis betting fans saw that throughout the match it was a shot he used to dictate several of his points.
“I was a bit frustrated at points in the match because I was doing quite a lot of the running for a lot of it,” Murray said.
“I wasn’t getting much depth on my returns, so when he was serving I was having to do a lot of running.
And price per head services could clearly see how much effort the player had to put in this match.
“I served a low percentage (of first serves). I served pretty well in my first match, and then today struggled to control the first serve.
“So I was playing a lot of points on my second serve. When that happens, you have to do a lot of the running. You don’t feel like you’re dictating the match. It can be frustrating.”
Tennis betting fans saw the Scot play his campaign’s second match on Louis Armstrong Stadium at Flushing Meadows instead of on Arthur Ashe, the venue’s main arena.
Pay per head sportsbooks and tennis betting fans remember that the player suffered his last early loss in 2010 against Stanislas Wawrinka at a grand slam on the court, and in 2011 he took on Robin Haase and Feliciano Lopez and last year faced Marin Cilic with very good tennis odds.
Murray added: “It’s a court I haven’t played my best tennis on, that’s for sure. And I think the conditions, well, it’s day and night, isn’t it? It’s completely different.
“The ball was bouncing extremely high out there at the beginning, and he’s a big hitter of the ball. He served big, too, bigger than I thought. Big second serve, too. It took me some time to get used to his game.
