Andy Murray Return To Tennis Specials on Paddy Power

Paddy Power open novelty market on Andy Murray's return to professional tennis

Question marks have hovered above the future playing days of Andy Murray, who underwent hip resurfacing surgery in January, but this week sees his celebrated return to professional tennis, where he will test the waters with an entry into the ATP Queen's Doubles.

Brother Jamie Murray specialised in tennis doubles, going down in history as a David Cup champion and a six-time Grand Slam doubles winner, and Andy Murray will be following in his footsteps by opting to play in a pair as opposed to a single. If he his happy with his progress in the ATP Queen's Doubles, he could be fit to return to singles tennis at Wimbledon 2019, which starts on the 1st July.

In tribute to the return of one of Britain's great sportsmen, Paddy Power have opened a special market to allow punters to bet on more than just the outcome of his upcoming tennis doubles match.

It's now possible to bet on whether Andy Murray's return will prompt laughter or tears

Often regarded for a dry sense of humour, it's a rare occurrence to see Andy Murray smiling. It's usually only something that people will comment upon as playful banter, but Paddy Power now make it possible to bet on the Scot's emotions at his opening ATP Queen's Doubles match.

Assuming that Andy Murray will break the habit of a lifetime, he's given odds as immensely short as 1/25 to smile at any point during the match, with an opposing 5/1 price for him to cry. His return is somewhat monumental after undergoing a serious operation only a few short months ago, but whether it's enough to lead to tears is another thing.

One possibility that is seen as being almost as likely as Andy Murray cracking a smile is his trademark apparel. The tennis star is often seen wearing white from head to toe, and Paddy Power expect the same at the ATP Queen's Doubles, pricing him to play in all white at 4/11.

Novelty options span from 10/1 to 50/1

Stepping into the even more bizarre options from Paddy Power, there are three different markets which come with an extremely slim chance of happening during Andy Murray's triumphant return. The shortest option among the least likely to happen is for Judy Murray to appear in the crowd wearing a 'Deliciano' t-shirt at 10/1, referring to when she tweeted a picture in admiration of Spanish tennis player Feliciano Lopez.

As another landmark in his career, Andy Murray was knighted by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace last month, so this will be his first appearance since receiving the honour. For Andy Murray to cheekily ask the umpire to refer to him as 'Sir Andy', odds of 33/1 are available. This is the second largest price provided by Paddy Power, only beaten by the appearance of an old favourite, where they offer 50/1 odds for him to wear the infamous Christmas jumper which was presented in Christmas 2014 upon a distressingly sad looking Murray.
