Andy Murray is best backed British player as Wimbledon kicks off
Andy Murray is set to be the best backed Briton in history by the time he walks on to centre court at the famous Wimbledon.
As Wimbledon kicks off today Murray is aiming to become the first home-grown winner since 1936 more people are expected to wager their cash on Andy Murray becoming the outright winner after the announcement that Rafael Nadal was forced to withdraw from the tournament following an injury.
The bookies are putting Murray at second favourite to win behind the force of Roger Federer but other big names could cause an upset such as a Roddick and Djokovic.
With no more rain delays set to hinder the play on centre court this year due to a brand new retractable roof being installed since last year the world’s most famous tennis competition is looking to be its greatest yet.
