We had an absolute thriller in Dubai with Andy Murray against Philipp Kohlschreiber, and we got very lucky to get Murray through. He really struggled and had to face SEVEN match points against him in an incredible tense tie break in the second set. He managed to win the tie break 20-18, and won the third set easy 6-1. Other than Murray we have got Lucas Pouille, Fernando Verdasco and Robin Haase left in the tournament. These are players that Murray normally would beat easily, so it is looking good for this outright bet now. The odds on Murray is now 1.25.
Novak Djokovic, however, crashed out of the Acapulco tournament against Nick Kyrgios. Djokovic was nowhere near his best level and went out in straight sets. Very disappointing display from the Serbian.
We also lost the bet on Kristen Flipkens as she lost to Kristina Mladenovic. The match was pretty even, but the second seed was better at the most important points and won the game fairly comfortable.
That means we only have Andy Murray left of our outright bets. Hopefully he can go all the way.
