Murray is now 33/1 to win all four Grand Slam tournaments this year and 9/4 to end 2013 as the world number one.

Murray's odds have also been cut to win Sports Personality of the Year in 2013.

Originally offered at 2/1 he is now in to 13/8 a price that will only go one way if he wins his match against Djokovic on Sunday.

"Andy has shaken the monkey off his back in terms of winning a Grand Slam now and there will be plenty of people who will be backing him to do the business on Sunday morning," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

"2013 is already looking like it could be Andy's year."

Murray is the 6/4 outsider with Djokovic an 8/15 chance at Ladbrokes.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "Whilst Djokovic goes into the final as firm favourite we've learnt you write Murray off at your peril."

In the 2011 Australian Open final, the Serb beat Murray in straight-sets but punters believe the World No.3 will be a lot tougher to beat this time around.

Coral go 11/2 that Andy Murray beats Djokovic in a five-set match and 6/1 that he gets the job done in straight-sets.

"Andy Murray has come so close to winning this title in the past and punters are praying that he can continue his winning streak and land his second consecutive Slam," commented Nicola McGeady, Coral PR Manager.

"Djokovic is currently the worst result for us but we're expecting the tables to turn as we've seen a surge of money come in for Murray and we don't expect it to ease up anytime soon!."

Andy Murray's game is going from strength to strength and Coral are quoting 66/1 that he wins all four Grand Slams in 2013.

His odds have also shortened into 15/8 from 5/2 to be crowned the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

Many pundits believe World Tennis is about to enter a new era with Murray and Djokovic dominating the Grand Slam events.

Coral quote 5/6 that Murray and Djokovic face each other in over 10 Grand Slam finals during the rest of their careers.
