  • Murray rallies to defeat Ferrer

    7/5/12 3:11 AM | Kelli DeMario
    World No. 4 Andy Murray is through to the semifinals after outlasting world No. 5 David Ferrer in four sets. The Scot moves on to face World No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for a place in the championship final.

    Fourth seed Andy Murray reached his fourth consecutive Wimbledon semifinal, having upended 7th seed David Ferrer in four sets. The 25-year-old trailed by a set and a break before sealing the quarterfinal, 6-7(5), 7-6(6), 6-4, 7-6(4).

    Ferrer had multiple chances to take a two-sets-to-love lead, which included a set-point at 6-5 in the tiebreak. Murray fought back to level the match once the veteran erred trailing 6-7.

    "I knew it's a lot harder to hold serve from the near end of the court," said Murray. "I think both times when he served for it, he was serving at that end. I just tried to make him play some balls, tried to dictate more of the points."

    "I think the key was in the second set, when I had one set point in the tiebreak," said Ferrer. "But Andy, in important moments he played really good. He played more aggressive than me, and he was better. I never made a quarterfinal at Wimbledon. I played really good tennis these two weeks, and I'm very happy for that."

    Murray completed the quarterfinal with 18 aces and 61 winners through three hours and 52 minutes of play.

    He is scheduled to take on 5th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semifinals. The Frenchman dismissed 27th seed Philipp Kohlschreiber 7-6(5), 4-6, 7-6(3), 6-2.

Andy! Andy! Andy! Showed mental strength in the clutch moments. No bad body language. Just got down deep and toughed it out. Big improvement. And David is a fighter alright and a very underestimated player. Like Andy, unfortunately playing in a very talented era. Am sure "neutrals" enjoyed this match very much lol.
Go! Go! Go Andy! All the way to the final :)

Congrats to Andy and his fans - it was a hard fought match and Andy deserved the win. I wish him good luck against Tsonga.

Yes, David Ferrer is to be admired a lot IMO and I get a bit upset when someone belittles his achievements or the man himself.
