Sky Bet still expect Andy Murray to book his place in the ATP World Tour Finals semi-finals despite his 3-6 6-4 7-5 loss to Novak Djokovic, offering 5/2 for him not to qualify.

Andy Murray: Lost to Novak Djokovic on Wednesday

The Olympic and US Open champion sits second in Group A having beaten Tomas Berdych in his opening match and, subject to head-to-head and games difference, should just need to beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Friday.

Sky Bet make him 2/7 to reach the last four.

The Scot has, however, drifted out to 3/1 (from 9/4) in the outright betting with Djokovic now the 5/4 (from 2/1) favourite ahead of six-time champion Roger Federer (5/2).

Sky Bet's Ned Brooker said: "Murray's qualification hopes should still be in his hands and his head-to-head record against Tsonga, leading 6-1 with five successive wins, reads encouragingly.

"However, Djokovic was very impressive following that first-set loss and deserves his place at the head of the betting, while Federer's record at this event and indoors warrants considerable respect."
