Australian Open 2016, Semi Final: Raonic v Murray (08:30)

The head  to heads are 4-4. They each have a win by walkover. Murray won their last 2 in straight sets.  The most recent was in May last season on clay.

Murray has been here before. He has been in the final 4 times including last year. He has lost to Djokovic 3 times and Federer once in his finals.

This is Raonic’s first semi final.  Wawrinka was suffering from a cold and took Raonic to 5 sets. Monfils took a set from him. This isn’t going to be easy for Raonic against one of the best returners on tour. Murray hasn’t been at his best in this tournament but then neither had Djokovic before his semi final!  I think Raonic is more likely to suffer with nerves trying for his first slam final.

Raonic looks like he has improved his all round game but obviously relies heavily on his serve. Wawrinka was able to put that serve under pressure consistently during their 5 sets.

I’d like around 1.70 on Murray. I doubt he wins in straight sets and 4 sets most likely. The last semi final was a bit of a let down so let’s hope we get a decent fight in this one.

  1. Decent Profit from this match.Backed Murray when he lost the 1st at 1.84 but didn’t hedge or greenup predicting he will break Raonic in 3rd set if not take the set.Neither happend and i was back to square one.Again backed Murray with small amount at 2.36 but it was risky till the 8th game of the set.Although this is a winning trade please give your inputs where i went wrong and what can be done correctly.

    1. About the only thing I did differently was to remove my liability at 1 set each. I added a little after Raonic went 2-1 but I wasn’t confident . Obviously when Raonic had the injury it was safer but we had to be on early to get the real benefit of a relaxing set 5.
