Tennis tips and betting predictions. Andy Murray vs Novak Djokovic in the Miami Open final
Andy Murray has been very inconsistent in Miami: lots of stupid failures and double faults in the most important moments. At times his first serve percentage was as low as 40%. And with all this in mind, let’s be fair: so far Murray has had no really dangerous foes in Miami. All of the matches played required the Scott to spend 70% of his efforts. So now with his least favorite portion of the season some steps ahead he can afford to put all in.
Novak Djokovic sailed through a lot of troublesome rocks facing Alexandr Dolgopolov. Be the Ukrainian a bit more endurable, he would have survived the Serbian star. But history knows no “if” and now we have to deal with the real facts. Despite the final score, Djokovic – Ferrer encounter was tough as well. If the Serb had lost one of the first sets, he wouldn’t have closed that match out due to his physical exhaustion. As for the most recent match where Djokovic met John Isner from the USA, our team expected it would be much closer but Isner showed his poorest tennis possible. Just imagine: Djokovic managed to strike more aces than the American giant. It seems like it took John too much power to celebrate his win over the Japanese. Anyway, we have no other explanation.
Coming closer to the upcoming final duel, we have more arguments to back Nole, of course. The Serb has bested Murray in the last seven consecutive meetings. In their semi-final meeting at Indian Wells several weeks ago the Serb has literally wiped the Scott out (6:2, 6:3). It goes without saying that Novak possesses huge psychological advantage over Andy. Moreover, Nole’s technique style is very uncomfortable for the Scot. Usually Murray runs across the court without clear idea what to do next. When Andy defends, Novak breaks his defense by making his opponent run from one side of the court to the other. When Andy tries to attack, Djokovic builds up very reliable defending wall. So it’s not surprising that the prevailing majority expects another crushing defeat of Andy.
Our team is no exception this time. We also consider Novak Djokovic to be the favorite to the title. But there is one BUT to consider: shall Murray find ways to offer struggle, Novak may lose the match physically. And there are some evident signs that the Scott will accomplish this goal. First of all, he easily defeated Tomas Berdych thanks to the first serve percentage of 70%. Secondly, Murray is good at return so we might see him struggling on the Serb’s serve as well. Thirdly, Murray hasn’t showed his best tennis at this event so far. Now it’s his most needed chance – final battle. He must fight his tooth and nail.
So to be short, the bookies offer to take Murray’s win at the odds of 4.0. That’s too much. We wouldn’t advise our subscribers to bet on this match. But if you desire to get involved, take Murray’s win anyway.
