US Open - Can Murray finally take a Grand Slam title?

Andy Murray is now safely through to the second round of the US Open after a straight set victory over Russian opponent Alex Bogomolov in the opening round.

It was not the best performance from the number three seed though but he is still in the competition.

Murray will certainly need to improve as the tournament goes on if he is to reach the latter stages and break his Grand Slam duck.

He goes up against Ivan Dodig in the second round at Flushing Meadows and is the massive favourite to progress with his latest betting offer having him at 1/66.

After the Scots success at the Olympic Games though he should be full of confidence and he knows that on his day he can beat the best.

With Rafael Nadal out of the tournament though injury, this could be his time to shine in a big tournament.

It is likely that Murray would need to beat both Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in order to lift the trophy in America, but he did do this at London 2012 so should have high hopes of doing so again.

There is no doubt that the British number one will need to play some of the best tennis of his career to go all the way. That said though, this does looks to be one of his best chances for Grand Slam success with the form he is in.

Looking at some of the odds for Murray in a tournament, he is available at 9/2 with SportingBet to go all the way and win the US Open.

He was of course the runner-up at Wimbledon earlier this year and the final of a Grand Slam has been his nemesis over the years and he is 7/2 with Paddy Power to fall at the final hurdle again.

He is 3/1 to make the semi-final and 5/1 to be eliminated in the quarter-final.

US Open - Djokovic, Federer and Murray go for the final Grand Slam of the year

The US Open gets underway on Monday and in the men’s event it looks to be a battle between three players to take the final Grand Slam of the year.

With Rafael Nadal missing the tournament through injury – Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray are the men tipped by many to battle it out for the trophy.

At the moment, it is Djokovic who is the favourite with odds of 7/4 with Coral.

The Serbian won the first Grand Slam of the year which was at the Australian Open. Since then, he has got close in the major events but has fell at the final hurdle.

However, Djokovic has been the man to beat over the last 18 months or so and with his strong mentality, is likely to come into this one very strong. He is of course looking to retain his title here as well.

Then there is Roger Federer whose latest betting bonus sees him at 5/2 to win at Flushing Meadows.

Federer certainly showed that he is still one of the best players around with his victory at Wimbledon this year.

That win had many saying he was the best to have ever played.

Federer also has great memories at this tournament as he has won it five times in the past, but has not been victorious since 2008.

As for Andy Murray – it has been a year of mixed emotions for him. He was defeated in the final of Wimbledon but then showed fantastic spirit to come back to SW 19 and take the gold medal at the Olympic Games.

The Scot really does looks to be in fantastic form and this could be his best chance yet to win his first Grand Slam.

He has reached the final here once in 2008 and is being offered at 10/3 with Paddy Power to go one better than that this year.

It certainly looks to be a thrilling tournament and it will take a special performance for someone to stop one of these three taking the title.
