Murray proceeds to quarter-finals

4th July 2012

Andy Murray successfully beat Marin Clic to book a place in the quarter-finals at this year's Wimbedon.

In a match that suffered from a number of delays due to the rain, Murray put in a strong performance and there remains a hope that a Brit could finally take the SW19 title.

The poor weather meant the match was suspended overnight and although play resumed yesterday at 12.10pm, it was stopped just five minutes later as the heavens opened again. However, the players restarted an hour later and Murray won in straight sets 7-5 6-2 6-3.

"It's quite a tough match to analyse because it was very bitty. We were on and off the court," explained the number one Brit.

"Last night was difficult. I was in a good position. Cilic started well today - he was hitting the ball cleaner. But I served well in the third set especially.  It was a good experience because I haven't had too many rain delays at Wimbledon and I haven't always done that well when I have had them."

Murray will now face David Ferrer in the next round after he beat Juan Martin del Potro.

In the women's draw Serena Williams beat the defending champion Petra Kvitova in straight sets to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals. The US player managed a 6-3 7-5 win and will take on second seed Victoria Azarenka.

Williams told BBC Sport: "I had to step it up today because I was playing the defending champion, it was tough.

"Everyone thinks about lifting the trophy. It's something I've thought about, but my main goal is to keep progressing. If I want to win the title, I have to step it up. There are a lot of people vying for it. I'm happy just to be in the tournament."

Visitors staying at central London hotels who want to enjoy some of the Wimbledon excitement can still get hold of tickets if they are willing to queue on the morning of the event.
