Touched by his noodly appendage

Andy Murray is through to his third successive Wimbledon semi-final after beating Feliciano Lopez with ease, 6-3 6-4 6-4. The Scot will meet Rafael Nadal in a mouthwatering rematch of last years semi-final.

Lopez’s game revolves around his serve, a fearsome shot made all the trickier by a left handed delivery. As strong as his serve may be, the rest of Lopez’s game leaves a lot to be desired; some good volleying technique is married with a workmanlike forehand and a decidedly unreliable backhand. The ultimate combination is solid, if unspectacular.

Murray routinely demolishes solid but unspectacular players and his 4-0 winning head to head against Lopez will not have filled his opponent with much pre-match confidence.

Lopez was under the cosh from the outset, obviously struggling with Murray’s baseline variety and superior return of serve. After saving a break point in the sixth game with a remarkable second serve ace, Lopez inexplicably netted a mid court forehand to hand the advantage to Murray.

The Scot took this gift and didn’t look back, cantering to victory in two hours.

Murray was imperious on serve throughout the match and only faced break points in his penultimate service game. Lopez managed to claw his way to 0-30 on several occasions, but the Scot inevitably fired down an un-returnable serve to evade the danger.

There was one moment of concern as Murray appeared to tweak his groin. This resulted in some characteristic gurning and grimacing, but no apparent long term damage.

This was a satisfying and mature performance from Murray. The Scot played well within himself against a lesser player who never looked like causing an upset. There were no real dips in concentration and the few moments of danger were swiftly evaded.

Next up is Rafael Nadal, who beat Murray at the same stage last year. The Scot will be looking to exact some delayed revenge and, on the form he’s shown so far, he may well get the chance.

He was in danger of winning easily, so he faked an injury to provide some enjoyment for the crowd.

Andy was clearly annoyed by the question about the injury (which is nothing, and Murray just ignored it) but should give the hacks something to write about.

Lopez was absolutely pish poor, and barely tried until right at the end.  It was like he knew he could never win, and was happy to take his cheque and leave.

Well done Andy, a nice easy peasy win and enjoy your day off, and time to get excited about the SF we were salivating over as soon as the draw was made.

Can he beat Nadal this time and then Novak or Tsonga? He's playing so well, so decisively and this sort of form raises your hopes. Nadal does not seem invincible either, but when thse two play one another they bring out the best - can Andy's best beat Nadal this time. Nervous breakdown here we come. Will our hopes and his be dashed again? Oh dear, I can't stand the suspense! old stretcher pullhair toast

From the beeb.

1902: That's me done - splendid afternoon of tennis. Don't forget that you can watch it all on Today At Wimbledon (2000, BBC Two, apologies if you live overseas, at least your weather is probably better) as well as listen 6-love-6 with John McEnroe and Tim Henman at 1930 on BBC Radio 5 live.


Be interesting to hear what Mc has to say.

Good run for LaLo - imagine he'll be top 30 again?

Workmanlike victory. No dramas, and hopefully minimal energy expended.

You can wash your mouth out with soap too! Is that what you do when you're playing?

Fantastic win Andy!  Well done!   

Scotsgeek I like your comments recently, positive & straightforward; though I wouldn’t call any of the games at this level “easy peasy”.

I expect Andy’s groin will be fine with some stretching & treatment.  It was plain to me in watching it happen that he jarred something in his groin on a sharp turn and that is painful.  I’ve done it recently working in the garden, from lifting or whatever.   I thought it was rude of the interviewer to make the remark he did, already mentioned in a previous thread and I’m not going to repeat it over & over There were also some comments from MW members that I thought surprising & uncalled for.

Again, Well done, Andy!  Onwards & Upwards!

A perfect match, eye candy from Feliciano and our Andy in majestic form Smile
So good in third set when Lopez raised his game and Andy went, " how dare you" and snuffed him out  Super
