So far, so good for Andy Murray’s Wimbledon challenge, with the British number one having made relatively smooth progress to the fourth round stage of the competition.

Murray has dropped two sets en route to the last sixteen, losing the first to Daniel Gimeno-Traver in the first round and the second to Ivan Ljubicic in his most recent match.

In between, Murray completed a straightforward win against Tobias Kamke and he will be hoping for more of the same when he takes to Centre Court on Monday for a clash against Richard Gasquet.

Murray is a best price 2/7 with Ladbrokes (£30 free bet) to claim victory although he will be up against someone yet to drop a set at Wimbledon this year, with Richard Gasquet losing just nine games against Simone Bolelli in the third round.

The two players have previously met at Wimbledon and it was a dramatic match in 2008 which saw Gasquet serving for the match before losing in five sets.

The Frenchman is a 3/1 chance with Paddy Power (£100 free betting) to gain revenge on Monday and it could be worth siding with the underdog with a +4.5 game handicap start at evens with Coral.

Gasquet certainly seems capable of taking at least a set off Murray and a 3-1 victory for the Brit is on offer at 14/5 (Sportingbet – £25 free bets), with another 3-2 epic priced at odds of 13/2 with Betfred. Andy Murray can be backed at 4/1 with Ladbrokes to lose the first set and still win the match.
