Andy Murray is once again back on centre court today for day 3 of Wimbledon. The Scottish star has recently made a comeback after his tennis career was halted due to him undergoing major hip surgery back in 2019, and is now ranking 52 in the world for men's singles.
Murray made it to round two of the world famous tennis tournament after defeating Australia's James Duck on Monday, and is now looking to make it through to the next round when he plays today.
Who Is Andy Murray Facing Next At Wimbledon?
Murray’s opponent will be US player, John Isner. Murray is undefeated in eight previous appearances against Isner.
However, it won’t be a walk in the park as the American is currently ranked at 24 for men’s singles and holds the record for the ATP’s fastest ever official serve at 157.2 mph – the third fastest in tennis history.
When asked about his match up Murray said “I have played well against John in the past…I don’t think I’ve ever played him on grass before, so there will be different challenges.
He’s played well here before. He was very close to making the final a few years ago.” Isner also holds the record for the ATP’s fastest ever official serve at 157.2 mph – the third fastest in tennis history.
Looking at the odds, Bet 365 puts Andy Murray to win at 2/5 whilst John Isner to win is at 2/1.
