Take a look at Andy Murray´s and Nuno Borges’s achievements so far and other Nottingham Open predictions.
So far the British tennis player has won all three Nottingham Open matches in straight sets. Only in his last match, against Swiss Dominic Striker, he came close to losing a set, but Andy managed to win both sets 7-6 7-5.
After a season with irregular results, Murray is at his best playing on grass. That makes eight consecutive wins for the 36-year-old, who has already won the Surbiton Challenger and is close to doing the same in Nottingham.
Faced with a dearth of good results in higher-ranked tournaments, the Portuguese tennis player has had success in a couple of Challenger tournaments, where he managed to lift the trophy. The previous year he was not very lucky in grass court tournaments and finished with 3 wins and 3 losses.
So far he has only lost 1 of the 7 sets he has played at the Nottingham Open. In the previous round, he had his second straight-sets win, this time against Japanese Sho Shimabukuro.
