Andy Murray out to 50/1 for Australian Open triumph after retirement admission

Ben Darvill 11 Jan 2019

Sir Andy Murray was not one fancied to win the Australian Open this month and, following talk of his injury and of retirement, the British star has seen his odds of an unlikely triumph stretch further still.

The first Grand Slam of the year is edging closer as tennis’ top talents will be preparing for their opening gambit of the tennis campaign for 2019. Novak Djokovic remains the favourite at 11/10 with William Hill, with Roger Federer (9/2) and Rafael Nadal (15/2) supposedly the most-likely men to stop the Serb from clinching yet another title. 

One man that would have been targeting the latter-stages of the competition was Sir Andy Murray, but latest news on his injury has seen the likelihood of a comeback win drift massively. Having been 25/1 on January 2nd, the news that Murray is still struggling with a hip injury and is considering going under the knife once again has seen the Brit’s odds of winning the competition drift to 50/1. 

Indeed, this injury, which has been one that has curtailed so much of his game time recently, is something that seems to have Murray on the verge of retirement, with the star admitting that he intends to end his career after this year’s edition of Wimbledon. 

This admission, along with the fact that he is still struggling from pain, is the reason why Murray’s odds have drifted so much. With the Australian a tournament in which he could still retire after, Murray is not fancied to go all the way, with the injury-hampered star seemingly on his last legs. 

William Hill - Men’s Australian Open Winner betting odds:

Novak Djokovic - 11/10

Roger Federer - 9/2

Rafael Nadal - 15/2

Alexander Zverev - 8/1

Andy Murray - 50/1
