Andy Murray is the Wimbledon defending champion and one of the favourites coming in to the grass court season this year. He will be playing at Queens Club tomorrow and is the favourite to win the tournament there, but with no Nadal, Federer or Djokovic, then it would seem that he should win it, although there is certainly no guarantee. However, if I was making a bet on Betfair Tennis markets, then I would certainly be strongly considering putting some money on the British player.

Andy Murray

In the news yesterday, Murray announced that he would be taking a new coach in Amalie Mauresmo. This raised many hopes in that he would be seeking advice from a strong woman who has won Wimbledon. Having been so successful under his previous coach, Ivan Lendl, who although won many grand slams did not manage to win Wimbledon, it seems that he has been making correct choices when picking the team around him.

Making a bet is always a risk, especially on a British player at Wimbledon! However, it can really add to the fun, especially if you really enjoy watching tennis anyway. You can easily place bets either on the Betfair website or using the mobile app and you can bet really easily. It is a much easier way of betting money that other methods can be. Quick and convenient and the website has live scores of the matches as well, so if you are not able to actually watch one, perhaps because you are not at home or it is not being televised, you will still be able to find out what the latest score is and see whether you are likely to win or not.

Choosing who to place a bet on can be tricky and so you might like to start thinking as Wimbledon is just a few weeks away. Perhaps wait and see how well Murray does in his tournament this week first or just go for it and place a bet and see what happens. Of course, you may prefer to back another player but still support Murray and then you may not be so disappointed if they lose.

It is possible to bet on each specific game as well as on who you think might win the tournament. If you want to bet on a game then you will have to wait until the draw has taken place and will only be able to bet round by round as you will not know who is playing and when. This can be more fun, but you will have to make sure that you are organised. You could get the mobile app downloaded now or register and open your account if you do not have one yet. You will then be all ready for when the Wimbledon starts and be able to decide which matches you will be betting on and how much you are prepared to bet. The excitement will be building very soon!
