Nadal Pays Off For His Backers, 2009 Men’s French Open - BetUK

Betting on Andy Murray can be exhilarating at times and heartbreaking at times. This past week gave tennis punters a bit of both. Murray looked good making his way to the semi-final in Monte Carlo, but he ran into Rafael Nadal when he arrived in that semi match…and the Monte Carlo tournament is played on clay court…which isn’t a good thing for anyone playing Nadal.

Have a look at 2009 Men’s French Open. Nadal beat Murray, crushing the hopes and knocking up the bankroll of all the Murray bettors which there were many. Murray put up a valiant fight, but was dispatched after losing in a tie-break set.

Nadal then moved on to the finals where he beat Serbia's Novak Djokovic 6-3, 2-6 and 6-1. It was Nadal’s fifth consecutive Monte Carlo title.

Spain's number one tennis player looked great in the first set before Djokovic took advantage of uncharacteristic errors to win the second set 6-2. However, the clay court master struck back in the third set, breezing to a 6-1 set and match victory.

After this performance there is little doubt he will be the odds-on favorite for the upcoming Roland Garros tournament. Punters will still lay the big odds and back him in the Open, as his clay court play is the best in the world.

For Murray fans, it was nice to hear Nadal sing his praises after their match, saying the young Brit has the game to win Major tournaments, starting with the French Open. Odds will be favorable for the tennis betting public on Murray at Roland Garros.
