Wimbledon Biggest Wager Wins: Nadal 8/13 Fav For Final!
William Hill biggest ever Wimbledon bet was a winner as Nadal beat Murray today. The bet of £140,000 at 1/2 has triggered a monster £210,000 payout, and he also has a £51,000 on Maria Sharapova winning the Ladies title at 5/4, if she wins he is in line for a total payout of £321,750!
"Nadal cost us a pretty penny today but is was small fry compared to Murray win at Wimbledon, which Hills estimate would cost the industry a £5 million plus payout!" said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
Nadal is now the 8/13 favourite to win a further Wimbledon Crown, with Djokovic offered at 6/5.
"The final brings the two best players in the world together and you could not ask for more it could well produce a record turnover," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
