WIMBLEDON – Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Florian Mayer and Philipp Kohlschreiber made their way into the Wimbledon quarterfinals on Tuesday.
In a rain delayed match carried over from Monday, No. 4 Murray defeated 16th-seed Marin Cilic 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 to gain a spot in the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the fifth straight year.
Murray spoke about all the stops and starts of match due to the rain: “Yeah, it’s tough. You know, I mean, obviously in matches you kind of can build momentum and build leads, and then when you stop, once you come back out again, you feel like you’re starting off from square one.
“But I did well today. He started the third set well. He had a few chances. I came up with some big serves. I served very well in the third set especially.
But, yeah, it’s never easy. There were, what, three, four, three stops or something. It’s not easy.”
“Today was one of my best matches in this court, sure,” Ferrer said after defeating No. 9 seed Juan Martin Del Potro 6-3, 6-2
