£36,000 bet on Novak Djokovic
US Open: Bookies Cheering On Favourite Nadal!
After his marathon five set semi-final William Hill make Novak Djokovic their 13/10 outsider to win the US Open.
In comparison Rafa Nadal had it easy, coming through in straight sets which makes him the 8/13 favourite.
Novak is now a supreme athlete but even he will struggle with his energy levels after such a gruelling semi. It is 10/3 that Nadal wins in straight sets.
William Hill will certainly be cheering on Nadal. Earlier in the week a customer from the midlands placed a monster £36,000 bet on Djokovic at 13/8, which if correct, will mean a £94,500 payout.
"We need Nadal to do us a favour as £94,500 is a very big payout!" said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
