Murray in the land of Open glory?

Andy Murray is now 7/4 with Ladbrokes to win the Australian Open.

His semi final opponent David Ferrer defied pre-match odds of 9/2 to overcome fellow Spaniard Rafael Nadal and he is now 12/1 (from 80/1) to win the tournament.

RogerFederer (6/5 for the tournament) is 4/9 to overcome Novak Djokovic (13/8) in the other semi final.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Punters feel this is Murray’s year so we hope an inspired Ferrer can do us a favour and save a significant payout. The odds suggest Murray meets Federer in the final but none of the potential outcomes could be classed as a shock.”
