Murray or Federer to win the ATP World Tour Final at 5/2

| 09.11.2014

Coral are giving tennis punters a fantastic chance to win big, by offering enhanced odds of 5/2 for either Andy Murray or Roger Federer to win the ATP World Tour Final tournament in London’s O2 Arena (maximum stake of £20).

Here is why this special is so enticing.

Both Murray and Federer have been drawn in the same Group (B), and are the top two favourites to qualify from it as winners to make the semis, at 2/1 and 11/8 respectively. So it is highly possible the duo will make it through their pool, and then could even face each other in the final, meaning this bet would already be won.

They avoid each other at first, with Murray facing a player he has never lost or even dropped a set against in their three meetings, Kei Nishikori. The Scot is heavily odds-on at 2/5 for victory in the opening match of the tournament on Sunday November 9th, and 11/10 to beat him 2-0.

It is fair to say that Murray enjoys playing in England’s capital city, having won Gold at the 201Olympics, incidentally against Federer in the final, before taking his maiden Wimbledon title last year, beating Novak Djokovic. He can now claim a unique London hat-trick with odds of 13/2.

“It would definitely mean a lot,” Murray said on the prospect of winning the treble. “I know what it takes to win at the highest level so I will just make sure I prepare myself in the best possible way to give myself the best chance of success, but I am playing well and enjoying it right now.

And playing well he certainly is, having won three tournaments in the last six weeks, to make him qualify comfortably in the end in the Race to London.

All-time great Federer, meanwhile, happens to have the record amount of Tour Finals titles (six), and is a 7/2 chance to claim his seventh overall and third at the O2 Arena.

The Swiss 17-time Grand Slam winner is also in a fantastic run of form, which has seen him move up to second in the world rankings. He will have the extra incentive to be champion here again, given that he has a chance to reclaim his place at he top of the standings.

Federer goes up against Milos Raonic first, having beaten the Canadian six times in their seven meetings, so is heavily odds-on at 3/10 for victory again. The 33-year-old knows he has no one to fear, as he doesn’t have a losing record against any of the seven other contenders in this tournament.
