LADBROKES COULD LOSE record amounts at Wimbledon this year if Andy Murray and Johanna Konta complete a famous British double in the Men's and Ladies tournaments.While Murray was an unpopular selection before a ball was served at SW19, the Scot has since become one of the most backed players in the competition, and remains an 11/2 shot to go all the way. The bookies can report that they've seen record numbers placed on a Men's and Ladies double of Murray and Konta both winning (currently 35/1), with plenty backing that outcome at 90/1 a week ago (when Murray was 6/1 and Konta was 12/1).That would leave the bookies facing a multi-million pound payout for the double alone.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "It's rare we find ourselves in a position like this, but Serena Williams' absence has blown the door wide open for a patriotic double for punters."
"Both Murray and Konta have been great so far, and that's left plenty thinking it could be a record-breaking Wimbledon for Britain."
