Bet Live: US Open Men's Quarter-FinalsPublished September 5, 2013 by OCR Editor
Djoka, Murray feature in final two quarter-finals at Flushing Meadows Thursday
The 2013 US Open picture will come closer to completion Thursday when the final two men's singles quarter-finals are held at Arthur Ashe Stadium at New York's Flushing Meadows: top-seed Novak Djokovic v. 21th seed Mikhail Youzhny, and third see Andy Murray v. 9 th seed Stanislas Wawrinka.
Djokovic was in ominous form a couple of days when he sealed a spot in his 18 th straight Grand Slam quarter-final in a 6-3, 6-0, 6-0 rampage over Spanish world number 43 Marcel Granollers. This contest should be tougher, given that Youzhny, a 2006 and 2010 US Open finalist, defeated former champ Lleyton Hewitt to get here.
Murray worked hard to overcome unseeded Uzbek Denis Istomin in four sets on Tuesday night, and is no certainty to beat Wawrinka. The Swiss underdog has won five of their 13 head-to-head meeting, including the most recent this year at the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters. They have one win apiece at Flushing Meadows.
Unsurprisingly, Djoka and Murray are the heavy pre-match betting favorites at William Hill as time ticks down to the opening serve. However, there is a strong range of pre-match betting options to place wagers on where both matches are concerned, including match result, set betting, total games odd/even, and more.
Most importantly, Hill's live betting function will be up and running on both these games and all the men's and women's singles and doubles semis, right through to the end of the tournament. Place a Djokovic-Youzhny live bet or a Murray-Wawrinka in-play bet by logging into William Hill In-Play Betting tab and selecting your preferred match.
