Murray Misery for Bookies as Nadal beaten
Bookies William Hill are facing a monster Murray payout should he go on to win the Australian Open and he is now the 15/8 favourite from an original 6/1. Murray is 2/7 to beat David Ferrer and 11/8 to do so in straight sets.
"Murray is our biggest liability and Ferrer has done us no favours by dumping the top seed out of the tournament," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
5/2 David Ferrer, 2/7 Andy Murray
7/4 Djokovic, 2/5 Roger Federer
Set Betting:11/8 Murray 3-0, 12/5 Murray 3-1, 11/2 Murray 3-2
William Hill Australian Open: 11/10 Federer, 15/8 Andy Murray, 4/1 Novak Djokovic, 12/1 David Ferrer
