Andy Murray – Tomas Berdych
Andy Murray would probably always enter a match like this as favourite, but shouldn’t the prices be suggesting a more equal match than these do?
Fact is, that Berdych has beaten Murray in their last 3 encounters, on 3 different surfaces, which suggests a rather good grip on a certain opponent.
Berdych has been in really good shape so far this year and has hammered his first 2 opponents in this tournament, where he reached the semifinal last year, falling to Djokovic after having to withdraw in the 3rd set.
Murray has never surpassed the quarterfinals here.
Juan Martin Del Potro – Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
It will probably be a tight match, it usually is, but usually Del Potro sneaks away with the win as well and what speaks against him this time? Nothing really.
They have met each other 5 times with 4 wins to Del Potro, the last coming in Marseille on February 25 this year.
Also the market for tie break looks really promising, especially with an extremely generous odds of 1.85 as Bwin 20£ in Free bets! has come up with.
There has been a tie break in each of their last 4 meetings. 5 in total in those 4 matches.
