Just a small play here on Andy Murray to win and cover the game handicap here against American Brandon Nakashima.
When at a level of fitness that is somewhat close to the best he can manage at this age and with his injury history, the grasscourt craft of Murray still shines through. He has won through two rounds now in straight sets and looks to have made the right decision in skipping Roland Garros to focus on a strong grass season. So far, so good.
Murray’s ability to use the pace of his opponents will well and truly be on show here today against Nakashima. Nakashima was on the quick back-up from Roland Garros and after struggling through Huesler in round 1, saving three match points, he then won comfortably through against Kozlov in round 2.
Form and experience favour Murray, and I am happy to stake a unit on the game handicap.
