Andy Murray and Laura Robson joined Heather Watson in the second round of the Australian Open and William Hill are offering 9/2 that all three make it through to the third round. Murray is 1/200 to defeat Joao Sousa in his second round match (25/1 to lose) and 11/4 second favourite behind 10/11 Novak Djokovic. Both Robson (4/7) and Watson (8/13) are odds on to be eliminated from the tournament in the second round.
"It has been a while since British fans could realistically think of having three players in the third round of a Grand Slam and while it looks as though the girls may struggle, they could still cause a shock," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
