An easy first round for Murray?

Andy Murray is in action in the early hours of Tuesday morning as he takes on Robin Haase in the first round of the Australian Open in Melbourne.

A comfortable win will be expected for the Scotsman as he is by far the better player, but you never know in these Grand Slam matches and anything is possible.

Murray cannot afford to be complacent, but if his attitude and work rate is over the last twelve months is anything to go by, there is no danger of that happening.

The number-three-seed is the big favourite to win this match at 1/14 with BetVictor, so it is safe to say the bookmakers are backing him to breeze into the second round.

Murray is of course looking to build on his superb US Open win back in September last year, where he finally ended his wait for a Grand Slam title.

Now he has won one, he will expect few more and there is no better way to start 2013 than by lifting the famous trophy Down Under.

Haase can be backed at 16/1 to claim a victroy here, which is of course good value, but possibly for a reason.

The Dutchman has played out a five-set-thriller with his opponent before though when he gave him a big scare at the 2011 US Open, so he does know how to rattle Murray’s feathers.

However, the favourite has matured since then and you have to say that an upset really doesn’t look to be on the cards here.

For that reason, the betting offers on different markets are good to look at and it backing Murray to win the first set by six frames to two is available at 9/2 with Paddy Power.

It should be a great match of tennis to watch. 

Australian Open set to be a thriller

We are just over a month away from Grand Slam tennis returning to our screens as January sees the Australian Open take place from Melbourne.

This is of course the first major title of the new season and if you can win this one, it usually sets you up for a fantastic year.

The man who won here back in 2012, Novak Djokovic, will be looking to come out on top once more and with the form he showed in the latter stages of the last campaign, it could be tough to stop the Serbian.

He of course won the ATP World Tour Finals, which was the final event of the tennis season and is sure to come into this one full of confidence. You can back Djokovic getting 2013 off to a flyer at 6/4 with Coral.

Roger Federer will be hoping for more Grand Slam victories this campaign and he knows that at 31-years-old, this could be one of his final years in the sport.

However, the Swiss showed no sign of flagging or looking as though he was ready to retire in 2012 and if he has kept himself fit in the closed season, will be a big contender for this Australian Open. Those after his latest betting offer can back Federer to win here at 5/1 with William Hill.

Andy Murray is showing that he can compete with the best players in the world and he is a 3/1 shot with Ladbrokes. Murray of course ended his wait for a Grand Slam in the US Open back in September and will be looking towards 2013 as the year where he really cleans up with titles.

Also, this tournament is likely to see the return of Rafael Nadal, who has not been in action since crashing out of the second round at Wimbledon. It might take the Spaniard a while to get going, but he will be hungry for success.

Nadal is at 8/1 to go one better than he managed back in January.

The likes of Juan Martin Del Potro, Jo Wilfried-Tsonga and David Ferrer will also be out to cause an upset in Melbourne.

It makes for a thrilling tournament.
