ATP Cincinnati - follow the big four on WHTV
The Western And Southern Financial Group Masters ATP Cincinnati is down to the quarter-finals stage today and with tennis' four biggest names still in the mix, there's never been a better time to tune in to William Hill TV.
Today's free live streaming features the best in the business!
First up is Andy Murray who recently became the highest ever British ranked player at #2.
World beater and new father Roger Federer is also featuring, along with Wimbledon quarter-finalist Novak Djokovic and after a recent injury, even Rafael Nadal is returning to form.
17:05 | Andy Murray v Julien Benneteau
The first match of the day on the blue courts of Cincinnati sees the defending champion Andy Murray looking to secure his place in the semi-finals as he chases down the Masters trophy.
Murray, who beat fellow quarter-finalist Novak Djokovic 7-6(4) 7-6(5) in the 2008 final, is the current favourite at odds of 5/4 in William Hill's Tournament Winner market, to defend his crown with an outright win at the Cincinnati event.
Today the young Scotsman takes on France's Julien Benneteau for a spot in Saturday's semi-finals, and at odds of 1/33 to advance through this stage, backers would be better looking towards a straight sets victory at 1/10.
Wimbledon 2006 is the only meeting between the pair on court where Murray, now twice the player he was at that point, required four sets to get the job done but get the job done he did!
Today's result can go no other way than the defending champ in straight sets. Bet now
18:25 | Roger Federer v Lleyton Hewitt
This is a match that will surely be in Roger Federer's hands.
Although Australian Lleyton Hewitt is having a solid week in Cincinnati compared with Federer's which has been questionable at times, the world number one who is 1/7 to complete a victory today has the ability to lift his game when required and Hewitt at 4/1 in the match betting won't have the skill required to overpower the master.
Of the seven wins Lleyton Hewitt has managed over Federer in their 21 meetings, four were on the Hard surface but Lleyton was a better player in days gone by.
Federer, who won this tournament in 2007 beating James Blake 6-1, 6-4 in the final is second favourite in the Tournament Winner market behind Andy Murray at odds of 9/4.
It's not too often Roger Federer is not at the top of the list in the betting and maybe now is the time to take advantage. Bet now
20:05 | Gilles Simon v Novak Djokovic
Novak Djokovic has form here.
He managed an appearance in last year's final, only to lose out to Andy Murray and you can currently back Novak at 6/1 (with each-way betting still available) for a tournament victory in Cincinnati.
Djokovic who holds a 2-1 lead in their head-to-head stats and is priced at 4/11 in the match betting to beat Gilles Simon. This looks a good slice of value as the Serbian is yet to lose a set this week.
Simon was forced to sacrifice the first set when beating Davydenko and will meet a player of far greater standards here.
Djokovic should still be fresh and shouldn't have too many problems completing a straight sets victory today at a valuable even money. Bet now
00:05 | Tomas Berdych v Rafael Nadal
World No. 3 Rafael Nadal still doesn't look his old self this week in Cincinnati.
Although he managed a 7-5 6-2 straight sets victory over Paul-Henri Mathieu yesterday, the Spaniard trailed 4-1 in the first set.
He did however respond by winning six of the next seven games. In the second set, Rafa continued his improvement by opening up a 5-1 lead, and went on to close out the match in style. Nadal leads 4-3 and has won the last three times they have played.
"I think in the end of the first set I played better," Nadal said. "In all the second set I was playing very well. Very happy to be in quarter-finals and to continuing improve my tennis."
Although the fiery Spaniard is below par at the moment, odds of 1/3 to win the match or even 5/6 for a straight sets victory is too good to miss! Bet now
