Murray and Robson odds-on to rescue Hopman hopes
Andy Murray and Laura Robson will need to secure a win against France if they are to repeat last year's Hopman Cup heroics.
William Hill have made both players odds on favourites to win their ties, with Murray 1/12 to defeat Nicolas Mahut and Laura Robson 8/15 to emerge victorious against Kristina Mladenovic.
William Hill are offering 13/8 that Andy Murray manages to claim a Grand Slam title this year while Laura Robson is 6/1 to have won Wimbledon in or before 2020.
"Andy and Laura are Britain's best tennis hopes and there has been a lot of interest from our punters regarding their prospects for the upcoming year and beyond," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Andy Murray is 6/1 to win the 2011 Australian Open and Laura Robson is 200/1 to win the ladies' draw. Hills are also offering 8/1 that there is no rain at this year's Wimbledon and 3/1 that Wimbledon 2011 enters a third week due to adverse weather conditions.
