Three years after becoming the first British man for 77 years to win the Wimbledon singles title, Andy Murray will have another shot at home glory here on Sunday. A crushing 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 victory over Tomas Berdych – his fifth straight-sets victory in his six matches so far at the tournament - sent the 29-year-old Scot into a showdown with Milos Raonic, who is the first Canadian man ever to reach a Grand Slam final.
Victory for Andy Murray on the most famous stage in tennis was even sweeter second time around. Three years ago Murray’s overwhelming emotion after ending Britain’s 77-year wait for a men’s singles champion at Wimbledon was one of relief, but after winning the All England Club title for a second time here the Scot said that he was determined to enjoy the moment.
Novak Djokovic yesterday bemoaned the state of Centre Court and criticised the All England Club’s (AELTC) decision to postpone his fourth round Wimbledon match, in a bad-tempered press conference following his 6-2 7-6 6-4 victory over Adrian Mannarino.
