Ferrer backing Murray to go all the way at Wimbledon
Andy would be first British man since 1938 to reach the final
ANDY Murray is ready to make a Grand Slam breakthrough, according to the man who he beat to reach his fourth successive Wimbledon semi-final.
The Scot came through a near four-hour battle against ultra-tough Spaniard David Ferrer 6-7 (5/7) 7-6 (8/6) 6-4 7-6 (7/4) on Centre Court and tomorrow will face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
Not since Bunny Austin in 1938 has Britain had a men’s singles finalist at the All England Club, while it was two years before that when Fred Perry became the last home player to win it.
World No5 Ferrer said: “Of course Andy Murray has a chance to win. He’s an unbelievable player. He deserves to win a Grand Slam.”
