US Open - Battle between the top four for the title?

After what has been an incredible year of tennis so far, the US Open will be another event everyone is keeping an eye on when it takes place later in the month.

It looks to be a very tight battle in this final Grand Slam of the year.

At the moment it is Novak Djokovic who is being tipped as the favourite to take the title for the second year in a row as he has odds of 2/1 with Coral.

The Serbian got 2012 off to the perfect start in 2012 with victory at the Australian Open. Since then though, he has been defeated in the French Open final and the semi-final of both Wimbledon and the Olympic Games – which were both at SW 19.

Djokovic is certainly a strong character though and is likely to come back stronger than ever at this event.

After finishing as runner-up at Wimbledon and then taking the gold medal at London 2012 – Andy Murray is arguably the player in the best form at the moment.

It seems as though he has really stepped up his game in recent months and is now able to compete with the best of them.

The Scot is being offered at 7/2 to lift the trophy with Stan James. Murray certainly looks in great shape to do just that.

Then there is Roger Federer, who of course won Wimbledon last month and was then defeated in the final of the Olympics.

Federer has shown that he is still one of the best around, even at 31-years-old. However, at London 2012 he did look fatigued and this may just be one too many Grand Slam events for him. You can back him at 4/1.

Surprisingly, Rafael Nadal has had a bad time of things since winning the French Open. At the next Grand Slam he was defeated in the second round and had to pull out of London 2012 through injury.

It is likely that he will be a bit rusty going into the US Open which is why his latest betting bonus sees him at 8/1 to win the title.

The Spaniard will be desperate to get back to his devastating best in this tournament.

It looks to be a four way battle for the US Open and would take a sensational performance for anyone else to make a challenge.

It all looks set to be a thrilling couple of weeks of tennis and it all gets underway on Monday 27th August.

Wimbledon 2012 - Andy Murray ready for Tsonga semi-final clash

British No.1 Andy Murray has his best chance of making a Wimbledon final ever this week as he goes head to head with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Friday's semi-final.

It was expected that Murray would take on Rafael Nadal at this stage, but with the Spainard out, the Scotsman has a clearer path to the final.

This isn't to say it will be easy - Tsonga is a fantastic player - but this is, without doubt, the best chance Murray has ever had of reaching the final in this famous tournament.

In terms of what he needs to do to make it - more of the same. Murray has been ruthless when it counts so far and got the job done. His class has shone through at the right time and he fully deserves a place in the final four.

There is no doubt that he deserves more credit for making it through to his fourth successive Wimbledon semi-final too. He has flown the flag for British tennis extremely well.

As for Tsonga, he has matched his 2011 semi-final appearance here and there is no doubt that he appears at home on grass. The Frenchman loves the atmosphere of Wimbledon too and clearly enjoys his tennis.

A powerful server, he is a popular figure across world tennis and he will enjoy playing against the home favourite.

Looking at the odds for this one, those looking for a bet bonus should note that Murray is the slight favourite at 4/9 with Skybet, while Tsonga can be backed at 7/4.

In terms of a victory margin, Murray has made a habit of dropping a set on his way to victory in this tournament and with this in mind, the odds of 14/5 with Sportingbet for Murray to win 3-1 are worth noting.

Bring on tomorrow afternoon for this epic match! The whole country will be watching!
