Wimbledon: Men’s Quarterfinals Preview

Andy Murray Looks to Advance to the Semis at Wimbledon

David Ferrer vs. Andy Murray 
Sure, all this Murray Mania is getting a little tiresome every year, but you have to hand it to the 25 year-old after his latest win. He shrugged off the building pressure and frequent rain delays to secure a 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 victory over Marin Cilic to advance to the final eight. However, Ferrer is probably having the best year of his career at 30 years old and looks increasingly better on grass.  He won’t make it easy on the heavily-chalked Murray.

Advantage: Murray

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs. Philipp Kohlschreiber

With Rafa Nadal out of the running, this is a big opportunity for Tsonga. He went down a set before overcoming a back injury scare to put Mardy Fish away in the quarterfinals. The status of his back is certainly a concern, but with a .710 winning percentage on grass, he is in a different league from Kohlschreiber.

Advantage: Tsonga
