It had been 77 years in the making, the last time a British-born player won Wimbledon. And it was fitting that the man who should break the streak would be none other than Andy Murray, the No.2 ranked player in the world who had certainly overcome his fair share of disappointment to grab the biggest win of his career.
The most trying defeat for Murray came at the hands of Roger Federer in the 2012 Wimbledon championships. He admitted afterward how disappointed he was, moved to tears. But that soon turned into jubilation, as Murray won the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics just weeks later.
Then the climb up the ladder continued, when the perennial bridesmaid got his first Major championship win at the 2012 U.S. Open.
The 2013 U.S. Open is the only Grand Slam remaining in tennis this season, and after going 0-for-his-career, Murray has won two of the last four Grand Slams, and enters his first as the defending champion.
Murray has roughly two months to enjoy his win at Wimbledon before buckling down and trying to win a second-straight U.S. Open title, for which oddsmakers have now pegged him as the favorite to do so.
The straight-set win in the Wimbledon final over No.1 player in the world Novak Djokovic vaulted Murray into a tie with Djokovic on 2013 U.S. Open tennis betting odds formed at Bovada Sportsbook. Murray was behind Djokovic, but of course winning changes all of that. Murray now must adjust from the role of the hunter, to the hunted.
The top-two players in the world have been set with odds at 7/4 to win the 2013 U.S. Open. They are the last two winners of this Grand Slam, as Djokovic won the 2011 U.S. Open in his rise to the No.1 ranked player in the world.
And it’s clear that these two players have separated themselves, even from top players like Rafael Nadal and Federer.
Of course, Nadal’s opening round exit at Wimbledon sparked nothing but questions and doubt surrounding the 2013 French Open champion. He comes in next on the list of favorites, but back at 7/1 is over three times the underdog as Murray and Djokovic.
Federer isn’t even in fourth by himself. He is actually tied with Juan Martin Del Potro at 10/1 on the betting line to win the U.S. Open. It’s been since 2008 that Federer has won the U.S. Open, which is the longest single Grand Slam drought of the four.
The opening rounds of the 2013 U.S. Open gets going on at the end of August on the 26th.
