US Open - big four set to dominate, but not for long!
William Hill are offering odds of 5/1 for all of the big four (Murray, Djokovic, Nadal, Federer) to reach the semi-finals at this year's US Open at Flushing Meadows.
The quartet have dominated the sport for the last 12 months, however Hills don't expect their dominance to continue - with the bookies offering odds of 1/3 that someone outside the quartet wins one of the next five Grand Slams and 9/4 they don't.
"Our odds suggest that the big four dominance will not continue into next year but we fully expect to see money for the 9/4 that between them they win the next five slams!" said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
