DJOKOVIC v MURRAY BETTING PREVIEW
Djokovic beat Rafa Nadal in straight-sets (7-5, 6-3, 6-1) in the most anticipated quarter final, became only the second player ever to beat the Spaniard at Roland Garros. The Serb has now won 40 of 42 matches in 2015. He has yet to drop a set in this year’s event and has extended his winning streak to 27 matches. His fourth-round match against Richard Gasquet was as easy as 1,2,3, as in 6-1, 6-2, 6-3. He thwarted up-and-coming Aussie Kokkinakis, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.
Murray has reached the semis by beating the clay court expert David Ferrer in four sets (7-6, 6-2, 5-7, 6-1). He boasts a 35-5 win-loss record for the year and is unbeaten since his wedding. The Scot has only dropped 3 sets in dispatching Facundo Argüello, Joao Sousa, Nick Kyrgios, Jeremy Chardy and David Ferrer in this tournament. He has already picked up clay-court titles in Madrid and Munich.
Djokovic has beaten Murray 18 times in 26 encounters and he has won all 3 of their matches this season: in the Australian Open and Miami Masters finals and at the semi-final of Indian Wells. The Serb has a 7 matches winning streak against Andy Murray since losing the 2013 Wimbledon final and has won 10 of their last 11 direct matches. The last time they played, at the 2015 Miami Open, Djokovic won 7-6, 4-6, 6-0. The couple have met each other twice before on the slow surface, with Djokovic winning both of those encounters, but their last meeting on clay came four years ago.
Djokovic is playing brilliant tennis. His game just looks better than Murray's. The Brit has to serve well because there is no way he survives the World No.1 with a bad service day. Murray has recently managed to exorcise a few demon by winning his first clay-court tournament, beating Nadal, and winning his first clay-court match against Ferrer. But beating Djokovic might be a mountain to climb.
