Murray has won tournaments all over the world and on all different kinds of surfaces, indoor and outdoor, but the two things that have eluded him are the victory on a clay-court surface and a win in Germany, so he will have to give it a go in Munich. A top tennis tipster knows that this will certainly be his best chance, as his run all the way to the end, should not present him with the kind of opposition that would be considered unbeatable. His decision to play in this tournament has to be considered a clever one, as in the past his choice for the clay-court season has always been to play in the Master Series events, where all the best players play, and the only 500 series in Barcelona, which has been Rafa Nadal’s favourite stomping ground. All the top clay-court pros, Nadal, Djokovic and Ferrer are resting this week, so this really does seem like the best possible opportunity for the Scot and he said as much this week: “I really think playing in Munich will be a great chance for me to get some good matches on clay and considering I really would like to finally win a tournament on this surface, this seemed like the right decision. If one considers that I have always lost to Rafa and Nole and considering they aren’t going to be here I’m hoping I can get a good run. As far as how I’m feeling, especially with my back, well in the week training I had in Barcelona, I felt very good physically, which was not the case, in the past when I started the clay-court season. I have had my back operation and this has helped me approach this part of the season with confidence and I am now concentrating on not letting the surface affect the way I play my game.” The best tennis betting expert knows that the man to beat on clay though is Djokovic and Murray agrees: “Nole has been playing extremely well and he is very confident but even if Nadal has struggled since coming back from injury he still is a very difficult player on this surface and he will be back to his best very soon.” Do you agree?
