Murray: always the bridesmaid, never the bride?

| 30.01.2011

Andy Murray is 7/4 NEVER to win a Grand Slam tournament according to Ladbrokes.

The Scot’s straight-sets defeat to Novak Djokovic was a crushing blow for fans who had seen his pre-tournament odds of 8/1 tumble to 11/10.

He remains 2/5 to register at least one Grand Slam before he retires and is 4/1 to win at Wimbledon later this year.

David Williams of Ladbrokes said: “Murray’s capitulation was great news for us and raises more question marks around his Grand Slam final pedigree.

“His fans remain fiercely loyal but comparisons are already being drawn with Jimmy White and Colin Montgomerie. They were always the bridesmaids but never the bride in the biggest tournaments of all and Murray still fits into that unwelcome category.”

Murray is 5/2 to break his Grand Slam duck before the end of the year.

Ladbrokes: Andy Murray specials:

Will he win a Grand Slam before he retires?
2/5 yes
7/4 no

Will he win a Grand Slam this year?
5/2 yes
2/7 no

4/1 Murray to win Wimbledon this year
