The US Open tennis final sees Andy Murray, ranked second, face Novak Djokovic, ranked third, in what should be an intense final face-off. Djovokic is the hot favourite for the US Open tennis final with odds of 2/5 for the win, and Murray can be backed at odds of 2/1.
Flushing Meadows will see the first major final with second and third ranked players since 1995 when Pete Sampras faced Boris Becker in the Wimbledon final. There is also added pressure for the defending champion Djokovic, as if he is to win he will be the first person to retain his title since 2008 when Roger Federer claimed the US Open tennis title for the fifth consecutive time. The odds are in Djokovic’s favour for this to happen, and the Serbian star can be backed to win 3-0 at odds of 2/1.
Murray and Djokovic have faced each other fourteen times so far in their tennis careers, and have an almost even split in the wins; with Murray coming out on top six times and Djokovic eight. The last time the pair faced each other it was Murray who was champion, winning 7-5, 7-5 in the London Olympics, and the odds for Murray to win 3-0 in this US Open tennis final are 8/1. It doesn’t look too hopeful for our British boy though, with the most likely odds in the set betting market being for Djokovic to win 3-0. Murray will likely put up a tough fight however, and hopeful fans can get odds for Murray to win 3-2 at 13/2, and odds for Murray to win the first set are 6/4.
Djokovic has had an outstanding run through the US Open tennis, losing his first set in the tournament so far in his most recent match against David Ferrer, before that winning every match in straight sets. He won 2-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 against Ferrer, and those who think there will be four sets in this final can get odds of 6/4.
Murray has had a similar score line, although not quite as impressive, losing two sets so far in the US Open tennis in his matches against Tomas Berdych and Marin Cilic. This US Open tennis final looks set to follow the pattern that has formed throughout the tournament of both players being strong contenders but with Djokovic being slightly superior to Murray, and the odds are 11/2 for Djokovic to win 3-2.
The US Open tennis final should be an exciting one to watch, and fans of both players can get odds for whether there will be a tie-break in the match at 4/7 for yes and 5/4 for no with StanJames.com.
