Murray v Federer Australian Open Betting Preview

Andy Murray and Roger Federer lock horns in the semi-final of the Australian Open on Friday and it is all set to be a Grand Slam classic between two of the best players in the world right now.

The Swiss has certainly had the tougher half of the draw and needed all five sets to beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the last round, whereas Murray continued his perfect record and breezed past his opponent, Jeremy Chardy.

Both would say they are in good form at the moment, but the Scotsman is likely to be the fresher as he has not yet been tested in the tournament. However, that might cost him as he could be a touch complacent coming into this one.

Murray has looked in great touch throughout the competition and he is not usually one to be at all complacent. He knows that this is by far the toughest test that he has faced in Melbourne, but gone are the days where he fears going up against the number-two seed.

Instead, the British number-one is likely to come and attack his opponent and at the moment, he is the favourite with the bookmakers to reach the final. You can back him at 4/6 with Boylesports.
