The world was on the eve of its second war the last time a Brit won at Wimbledon as Fred Perry captured the title for a third consecutive year with a straight sets victory over Germany’s Gottfried von Cramm in 1936. Andy Murray’s quest to end that long drought continues tomorrow as he meets Spain’s David Ferrer for the 11th time in his career.
Murray reached the Wimbledon quarters for a fifth straight year by defeating 16th ranked Croatian Marin Cilic in straight sets 7-5, 6-2, 6-3. Murray, who served up 16 aces and landed 35 winners opposite Cilic, is seeking his first Grand Slam title and his fourth semifinals appearance at Wimbledon.
Ferrer, who reached the quarterfinals at the Australian Open and the semifinals at the French Open, earned his first ever Wimbledon quarterfinals match with a straight sets victory over 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro. The win marked Ferrer’s third straight sets victory of the tournament.
Tomorrow’s meeting between Murray and Ferrer will represent the pair’s first ever grass court match. Murray has dominated the Spaniard on hard courts, posting a 5-1 record against him on the surface; however, Ferrer, who knocked off Murray 6-4, 7-5 in a hard court match at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals last November, is 4-0 opposite the Scotland native on clay.
