Andy Murray v Roger Federer Odds : Bet365 report plenty of support for Scot in Wimbledon Final
- Updated: July 8, 2012
Andy Murray goes in search of his first ever Grand Slam victory on Sunday afternoon as Bet365 announce free bets and a live stream service, as the Scot goes head to head with Roger Federer in what should be a thrilling Wimbledon final.
The British No.1 booked his place in the final with a fantastic performance against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the last four.
Winning in four sets, he was always the more likely winner and the emotion of reaching the final was clear to see.
This was Murray’s fourth successive semi-final appearance at Wimbledon and had he not made it to the final again, he would have been hugely disappointed. As it was though, his class shone through and now everyone is looking forward to Sunday.
The atmosphere on centre court will be something else too. The British fans always get behind Murray of course, but they have never had the opportunity to cheer him on in a Grand Slam final on home soil. It really should be something special.
Rounding off a perfect tournament is going to be difficult for Murray though as he comes up against Federer, a man that has already won at Wimbledon six times before.
The hunger and burning desire to win is still there though and against World No.1 Novak Djokovic in the semi-final, he was out of this world. Playing some majestic tennis, he reminded everyone why he is one of the best players ever to play the game, especially on grass.
In many ways, it is the perfect final – the home favourite against the most successful man in Wimbledon history. It really is one of the most eagerly anticipated matches this wonderful tournament has ever seen.
Federer will of course be the favourite and if he repeats his semi-final performance, there could be no stopping him. However, with the crowd driving him on and on the back of a tremendous tournament, there is every chance this could be Murray’s day.
The action gets underway from 2pm on Sunday afternoon.
