Tennis Odds: Murray wary of Robredo
By Andrew Scott Saturday, 29 June 2013 05:13
Andy Murray, world no.2 who is famous worldwide for his great tennis odds, believes that third round opponent Tommy Robredo could be a threat after Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer left his half of the Wimbledon draw.
The Scot was practising with 18-year-old fellow Briton Kyle Edmund at Aorangi Park. Earlier this week the teenager lost in the first round to Janowicz on his senior debut in SW19, before his next high-profile match taking place on Friday, where the tennis odds will be very closely followed.
Tennis betting fans saw that so far, Murray’s progress was not troubled, and the 32nd seeded Spaniard will have long odds to prematurely end the hopes of last year’s runner-up.
The players met four times before and they split the honours, but the last two matches were won by Murray with very good tennis odds, and the pair did not face each other since 2009.
Murray said: “He’s a tough player. He had a good win against (Nicolas) Mahut, who has been playing well on the grass.
“He’s very, very experienced. He’s extremely fit. He won three matches in a row at the French from two sets to love down. He fights right until the last point.
“Last year he had some injury problems. When he’s not injured, he’s been in the top 20 in the world for a number of years. He knows how to win tennis matches. So it’s a tough match for me.”
Robredo, 31-years-old, had injury problems and was not able to play during the first half of last season, which include Wimbledon, falling down in the rankings to 471st place, and his tennis betting fans were left feeling very frustrated.
But this year the player was in great form and earlier this month he was able to reach the French Open’s quarter-finals, making great tennis odds along the way.

The Spaniard said: “Obviously I don’t like to play on grass. Sometimes in life you have to do things where you are not that comfortable. If I could change it, I would put clay on the court all the time. But here they want to play on grass.”
