Olympics Men's Tennis Odds
LONDON, England (TheSpread) – Men’s Tennis is one of the sports at the 2012 Summer Olympics that should be very competitive. Here is a look at the odds to win this event.
According to oddsmakers, Novak Djokovic is the favorite to claim the gold in this event, as he has odds of 3/2 to win. Other short odds to win are Rafael Nadal (5/2), Roger Federer (7/2), and Andy Murray (9/2).
Djokovic claimed the bronze medal in the 2008 Olympics, but he has since won four grand slam titles. He has won four of the last six grand slam events and finished runner-up in the French Open, the most recent tournament.
Nadal claimed the gold in 2008 and he has since won six grand slam titles. Nadal is coming off a win in the French Open and he has reached the finals of the last five grand slam events.
Federer won gold in doubles back in 2008 but didn’t win in singles. Federer has won four grand slam titles since the 2008 Olympics, but has failed to win one since 2010. He has reached the semifinals of six of the last seven grand slam events.
Murray will have somewhat of a home-court edge, as he is Scottish born and a native of England. Murray didn’t claim a medal at the 2008 Olympics and he has yet to win a grand slam event in his career. He has reached the semifinals in five of the last six grand slam events.
The 2012 Summer Olympics will take place from London, England from July 27 through August 12 of this summer. For the complete odds for which athlete will win the gold medal in men’s tennis, see below.
