Andy Murray Sees Off Spirited Paire to Reach Quarters

11 July 2017

After his victories over Alexander Bublik, Dustin Brown and Fabio Fognini, Murray again finds himself up against an unorthodox opponent.

Konta's coach, Wim Fissette, said, "I would of course say she can win but I have different favourites for the tournament". I've done a good job so far here.

"I don't think anyone's suggesting it is fair", said Murray. If I'm not moving well it affects my game more than other guys. "She is only going to get better on grass so, if not this year, maybe the next year".

Paire is a finesser of a tennis ball, a player straight outta the Seventies, and it is not just his full, military beard that conveys a sense of nostalgia. Now that I am in the quarters I want to keep going'.

Garbine Muguruza came back from being a set down to win 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 against World number one Angelique Kerber in the round of 16 match.

Cilic, the 2014 US Open champion, is in the quarter-finals for a fourth successive year. But past year Querrey claimed the scalp of defending champion Novak Djokovic and Murray will be aware that this is a big step up.

For the first time since 2011, the top four men's seeds have reached the Wimbledon last-16 with Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal taking centre-stage on "Manic Monday".

This is Murray's tenth straight appearance in the last eight at the All England Club and, after taking down four unconventional opponents, he'll know exactly what to expect with big-serving American Sam Querrey.

In the men's draw, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Murray have 14 Wimbledon titles between them, while five-time champion Venus Williams is the only former victor in a fascinating women's event.

ANDY MURRAY is delighted about Johanna Konta's success at Wimbledon - because it gives British fans who do not like him someone else to cheer.

Murray was cheered on by a passionate Centre Court crowd with some of his pals from the sporting world including boxers David Haye, Carl Froch and golfer Matthew Fitzpatrick in the Royal Box.

The Luxembourg player's only other Grand Slam quarter-final came in 2008 when he lost to Federer at the US Open. He's tested in the next rally when a Paire shot clips the tape.

"She's a very good player".

The unknown factor is Murray's health, with the Scot continuing to limp in between points while, in the words of Paire, running "like a rabbit" during them. But he's obviously unsafe early on and he earns two break points, meeting a shoddy Murray drop shot with a forehand down the line.

Paire hit 50 winners compared to just 25 for Murray and entertained the crowd with several attempts at diving shots, but ultimately was far too erratic.

"Today certainly that was one of the most pleasing things about the match, was that I felt like I was able to track down a lot of his shots", Murray added. At 5-6 the Scot failed to convert two set points on Paire's serve, but Murray was utterly dominant in the ensuing tie-break, which he won 7-1. The Frenchman broke back to level at 3-3, but at 4-4 he played another poor game, again losing his serve to love, this time with a woeful volley when 0-40 down.

But as he did so the Bulgarian's error count also rose, and he conceded the second set on a break of serve, punctuating a double fault with two forehands that flew long.

The Brit eventually found some rhythm and galloped through the tiebreak before opening up a 2-0 lead in the second set.
