We’ve been unlucky in a few of our recent #BOTDs, but we’re confident we can get back on track today when Andy Murray comes up against qualifier Oscar Otte in the second round of Wimbledon.
Murray is obviously nowhere near the player that made it to No. 1 in the world and won three major titles, but the two-time Wimbledon champion showed some encouraging signs in his opening round win over Nikoloz Basilashvili.
Murray opened up a 6-4 6-3 5-0 lead over the 24th seed before his lack of match play almost came back to haunt him, with Basilashvili reeling off seven straight games to force a fourth set.
The Scot was able to regroup and close out the match, but we think he will be better for the run when he faces Otte and can close this clash out in straights.
Murray has never lost before the third round at Wimbledon in 12 previous appearances and has looked good in his limited preparation on grass.
Basilashvili is a much better and more accomplished player than Otte and Murray should have dispatched him in straights.
Otte has played a lot of tennis over the last fortnight – he came through qualifying by winning three matches and then was stretched in a marathon encounter in the opening round, overcoming Arthur Rinderknech 13-12 in the fifth set.
That match lasted over the course of two days and went almost five hours in duration. Coupled with his efforts in qualifying last week, Otte might be on his last legs without a day’s rest.
There’s always an element of risk with Murray these days as we don’t know how his body will hold up, but it looked like he came through his first round unscathed.
A healthy Murray is great value to beat Otte in straights and we’ll be backing the former World No. 1 to make it 13-0 in Wimbledon second rounds on Wednesday.
- Murray is 12-0 in Wimbledon second round matches
- Otte had never won a match at Wimbledon before this tournament
- Otte has already played four matches this tournament and won’t have a day’s rest after winning 13-12 in the fifth set in his R1
- Murray was leading 24th seed Basilashvili 6-4 6-3 5-0 in R1
- Murray is 57-10 lifetime at Wimbledon and has made at least the quarter-finals in all his appearances since 2008
- Otte is ranked No. 151 and the 27-year-old has never been inside the top 100 in his career
