It´s finals time over in Paris at the ATP Bnp Paribas Masters 1000 event and the final’s fixture of Novak Djokovic vs Andy Murray brings a lot of sports betting action with it.
This tournament has really been something out of the ordinary with John Isner sending out Roger Federer and Wawrinka giving Nadal a preview of what´s to come over at the ATP Finals in London next week. Three players really stood out for us this tournament and those were the two finalists and Wawrinka.
Stan really showed us this tournament that he can be consistent in performing versus the very elite such as Djokovic and that his victory at the French Open final over “Nole” wasn’t just a slump. As such Stanislas Wawrinka is a player to keep in consideration when planing your tennis betting for the ATP Finals London.
The other two are the two finalists, Andy has been very consistent in this tournament , dropping only a single set and that was in his quarterfinals game versus Richard Gasquet as predicted by the viking. He is one of the three players in the world that the viking considers to have a reasonable shot against Djokovic when he´s performing at his best level. However Andy had quite a rough time versus David Ferrer, Murray won with 6-4, 6-3 but he was having difficulties in winning his serves and the break points were flying from both sides. In conclusion Andy’s performance since the first two rounds have been a bit worse but one could argue that he´ve had better competition.
And of course there´s “Nole”. The world no. 1 never seizes to amaze and just as things were starting to look rough versus Wawrinka following a break at 2-0 in the second set and later loosing that set after yet another break which put Nole at 2-5 and later 3-6; Djokovic upped the tempo for the third set and played his best tennis of the tournament. In an earlier sports betting preview with Djokovic the viking mentioned that it looked as if Djokovic were holding back and saving his energy, well he showed us here in the third set just how good he can play if he needs to.
This will be Djokovic’s 13th final out of 14 possible finals this year, his only appearance where he didn´t reach the finals were back at the start of the season at ATP Doha where he dropped out versus Ivo Karlovic with 6-7(2), 7-6(6), 6-4 in the quarterfinals. Furthermore this final will be special for Djokovic since it possibly could mean his 6th masters-1000 title in one season.
Novak Djokovic made yet another mark in the history books with his victory at the last masters-1000 final in Shanghai as the only player to win 5 masters-1000 titles in consecutive years. If he manages to beat Andy tomorrow that means that he will break one more record and be the only player in tennis history to win 6 masters-1000 titles in one year.

The viking´s prediction for this game is that Novak Djokovic will decimate Andy Murray in straight sets. Murray and “Nole” are 20-9 in head to head matches in favor of Djokovic and they are 5-1 in favor of Djokovic this year. Two out of those meetings have actually been at Masters finals and Murray managed to beat Novak with 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 in one of those events over in Canada for his one win over Novak this year. However in their last meeting at the Shanghai Masters event Novak won in a decisive manner with 6-1, 6-3 and the viking believes that it will be a similar scenario in this match.
Murray arguably had an easier time in the quarters and semis “only” needing to face Gasquet and Ferrer whereas Djokovic had to face Wawrinka and Berdych. Regardless of that, the tempo and focus that Novak showed us in his last set versus Wawrinka was just next level stuff and with Novak chasing his 22nd consecutive victory and his masters-1000 world record it´s likely that he will put on a similar standard from the start of set 1 in this fixture.
Novak Djokovic – Andy Murray, 2-0 @ 1.64
