The ATP Tour has currently been in full swing in Washington DC. But the tour was not a great one for Andy Murray. Two weeks after he claimed a qualification ticket with the Great Britain team for the Davis Cup Semis, the Scot man saw himself dethroned in Washington DC. The No. 1 seed actually bowed to Russia’s Teymuraz Gabashvili (6-4, 4-6, 7-6 ). Both players were on the same score line during the first two sets, but the Russian tennis man gradually moved forward to dominate the game in the ultimate set after a series of break. For sports betting fans who wagered on South Africa’s Kevin Anderson, Serbia’s Viktor Troicki and Australia’s Bernard Tomic, we can say that great was their disappointments.
In the women’s category, Alizé Cornet’s run in the WTA Washington DC tour was roughly cut by Louisa Chirico. The No. 5 seed tennis lady was defeated in three sets (7-5, 4-6, 7-6 ). In terms of physical performance, Alizé was lacking significant striking power compared to her 19 years-old rival, Louisa. Suffocated, Cornet was kept under pressure in the final set. Yet, many were the keen of online bet who thought she could easily beat her opponent. The French successfully delivered good performance in the second set, but her wish to win the clash was fading away in the last set. USA’s Louisa Chirico will see herself teeing against either Sloane Stephens or Svetlana Kuznetsova.
