Murray defeats Paire

By for MurraysWorld.com on
Andy Murray defeated the hirsute Benoit Pair 7-6 (7-1) 6-4 6-4 today to reach his tenth successive Wimbledon quarter final.

The serve is usually dominant on grass, but four breaks were exchanged in an enthralling opening set. Paire is an unorthodox player, and his variety initially caused Murray problems. Booming groundstrokes were interspersed with delicate volleys, the occasional drop shot and plenty of unforced errors.

The Brit eventually found some rhythm and galloped through the tiebreak before opening up a 2-0 lead in the second set. Paire broke back to level the score at 3-3, but Murray broke again for a 5-4 lead. The Brit wobbled serving for the set, but defended four break points before finally getting over the line.

Paire continued to fight in the third set, but it was Murray who gained the crucial break at 4-4, before serving for the match.

Quote
"I thought I played well today, apart from a couple of sloppy service games in the first set," said Murray.

"That's by far the best I have hit it this week. He's not an easy guy to play - tactics aren't easy against him. Two weeks ago I was resting and a bit concerned, it was frustrating. But I have managed it well and have played some good stuff. I'm doing well and hopefully will keep it up."


Murray will meet Sam Querry in the quarter final on Wednesday.
Anyone else not seeing a pic?  Thanks, Phil.  I fully expect Andy to dispense with Querry with ease.

That's weird - I uploaded one and I see it on the front page. Something wrong with the image maybe?

I've changed it to a different one. Does it work now?

I can see the one of Andy at the bottom of the page, but the earlier one says  [Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ], although  I expect you only meant to post one anyway.
