Kamara: I’ll be rooting for my mate Andy Murray at the Australian Open

| 16.01.2015

Much like the rest of Andy Murray’s legions of fans, here at Ladbrokes News we’ll be setting our alarm clocks and waking up extra early to follow the British tennis star’s progress at this year’s Australian Open.

The world number six is rated a 7/1 shot to win a first major Down Under having been a beaten finalist on three previous occasions.

And we won’t be the only ones rooting for Muzza with Ladbrokes ambassador Chris Kamara also hoping he can be successful.

“I’m a big fan of Andy Murray. I’ll also be looking out for Rory McIlroy in Abu Dhabi, that’s my win double”, Kammy said.

Murray will have to overcome a difficult draw if he is to lift the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup in Melbourne, with Grigor Dimitrov, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal all potential opponents en route to the final.

But as the legendary pundit will explain, past experience has taught him firsthand about the Scot’s winning mentality.

“Myself and Tubes played Andy and a fella called Gordon Smart in a game of head tennis for Soccer AM. We lost! But very narrowly”, Kammy added.

“I didn’t realise we’d be playing with a tennis ball. I thought we’d play with a football. Andy Murray is a whizz in terms of ball control and juggling with a tennis ball. It’s something he’s been doing quite a lot in training for a number of years.”

If, like Kammy, you’re feeling confident about Muzza’s Aussie Open chances then head towards Ladbrokes.com to get your own slice of the action.

Murray faces Indian qualifier Yuki Bhambri in the first round, a match where he’s a whopping 1/100 to triumph with odds of 1/7 for a 3-0 victory highlighting the expected gulf in class.
