Olympics Tennis Live Betting: Juan Monaco vs Andy MurrayPublished August 8, 2016 by Sol FH
The Rio Olympics enters the third day of competition with excellent tennis today at 13:00 GMT.
It was only a few weeks ago that Andy Murray raised the trophy after winning yet another Wimbledon Championship. The UK tennis star is in the best shape of his life on the singles court and won his opening match against Serbia's Viktor Troicki in straight sets and looks to win the next round against Juan Monaco of Argentina. Murray was ousted from the doubles competition with his brother in the first round, but Andy now seeks to win a Gold Medal in the singles.
The biggest shocking news from the first round of Olympics tennis had to be the fact that Novak Djokovic was beaten in his first match against Argentinian Juan Martin del Potro. Surely Djokovic must be questioning what is going on after losing out at Wimbledon and now at the Olympics.
Head to Head
Murray and Monaco have met in the past and surprisingly they are quite similar when it comes to win/loss record. Murray has beaten Monaco in three matches, while Monaco has beaten Murray twice. The last time that they met was in 2014 in Shenzen and Murray walked away with the victory 2-6, 6-3, 6-0. Fans are expecting the same kind of victory tonight and now that Djokovic is out of the competition, Murray is the favorite to win Gold.
