The long wait is over. Andy Murray made his comeback to the tennis court in the ATP tournament in Washington and won an epic three-set match against Mackenzie McDonald. It was his first match in more than a month. Will he be able to advance to the next round in his match against Kyle Edmund? Find out more in our betting preview of Andy Murray’s next match.
The two-time Wimbledon Champion, Andy Murray, had to go the distance against McDonald in his last match. It took him more than two and a half hours to beat the American and it was more than evident that he is still missing some actual match practice. Nevertheless it was a good test for the Scotsman and his physical condition should be sufficient to go into his next match at the highest level.
Kyle Edmund, on the other hand, will be going into this match fresh, without having played a match in the tournament yet. His last match was back in England against Novak Djokovic. Edmund has greatly improved this season and has climbed the ladder. He is currently ranked as the 18th best player in the world and rightfully so. His strong performances in 2018 have been really convincing and he is still a young player who has not yet reached his maximum potential.
Edmund has been a long-time practice partner for Andy Murray and he even defeated him two times in official matches. Andy Murray will definitely have to step up his game against Edmund, who is a stronger opponent than McDonald. Nevertheless it might give him a boost in confidence. His first round match could have gone either way and Murray was visibly relieved and happy to beat his opponent.
From the betting perspective it’s a really interesting game. Bookmaker odds are slightly in favor of Murray, however the difference is too small to consider him a favorite in this game. It will be crucial for us to see how Edmund will cope with the travel to the United States and facing such a strong opponent in his first match in the tournament.
Murray will be looking to continue his performance from the last set against McDonald. It is to be expected that he will improve, gaining actual match practice against other players. Edmund is definitely a good opportunity for him to prove his current shape.
I expect a close game once again. More than 22.5 games in this match seem like a reasonable bet at odds of 1.90 @ 1xbet. Both players have solid serves and the hard court should make it even more difficult to break a player’s serve. If you are confident in Andy Murray’s strength, bet-at-home is offering odds of 1.96 for him to win this match.
