Murray lacking support as Federer becomes new favourite

Andy Murray is lacking support from punters after injury forced him out of a pre-Wimbledon exhibition and Roger Federer is now rated as the new favourite for the Championships at the All England Club.

After his poor showing at Queens which saw him go out in the first round, he was due to play at the Hurlingham Club against France’s Lucas Pouille – but he has had to withdraw due to a hip problem.

With this news coming less than a week before Wimbledon starts, bookmakers are reporting not too much interest coming in for Murray.

The odds of the current number one regaining the Wimbledon trophy have drifted considerably since he was 5/2 joint favourite just three weeks ago.

Federer, with whom Murray shared favouritism, is now the 2/1 favourite to win Wimbledon while the mammoth gamble on Rafael Nadal continues apace, with his price coming in from 7/1 on 11th June to just 9/2 now.

“Andy Murray does not come into Wimbledon in the best of form and the money has dried up for him,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

“There will inevitably be the surge of patriotic cash that comes in at the start of the tournament but for now, he remains friendless with Rafa and Roger proving to be the most popular.”
