The WAGS were out at Wimbledon last weekend as the sporting world and especially those who bet on Andy Murray watched in amazement as first Victoria Beckham entered the Royal Box and then as Murray won the Grand Slam title.
Murray’s performance on court was simply astonishing and maybe players of the England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland national teams could do with watching his dedication, commitment and attitude if they ever want to achieve success on the international stage. We can all stand up and applaud Murray’s success but tennis betting fans are likely to have watched with keen envy.
A three-sets victory against world number one Novak Djokovic boasted odds of 20/1 before the match. That’s like Arsenal beating Man United 3-0 at Old Trafford. The WAGS were certainly impressed. Murray’s girlfriend, Kim Sears, was visibly shaking as the Scot served for Championship Point, while Coleen Rooney appeared to be enjoying herself in the box – although Wayne seemed less than impressed when Gerrard Butler came over for a tête-á-tête.
Djokovic’s girlfriend, meanwhile, was one of a handful of people not enjoying the scenes on Centre Court. Jelena Ristic shouted and fist-pumped her way through the match, trying in vain to inspire some life in the Serb. Her performance was reminiscent of a sole away fan on the terraces who, although their team has fallen two goals behind, refuses to give up hope. Certainly us football fans can relate to Ristic’s vociferous yet desperate cheering of her man, for next season a good proportion of the Premier League will do just the same each Saturday afternoon.
While the grass tennis season now comes to an end the football campaign is about to kick off and fans should check out what offers are available on the football odds. Now Murray’s won Wimbledon almost anything in sport is possible, which is why Manchesters United and City, along with Chelsea, are all clear frontrunners for the League title next term.
