Wimbledon: Patient No. 4 Andy Murray Beats No. 18 Sam Querrey, Makes Third Straight Wimbledon Quarterfinal

No. 4 Andy Murray is into his third consecutive Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 over American No. 18 Sam Querrey.

Querrey was down a break 2-5 in the first set, but rallied to even the frame at 5-5, and even had triple break point on Murray’s serve at 0-40. But Querrey couldn’t finish the job, and folded as a steadier Murray took the first set 7-5.

From there, it was a lot more of Murray scrambling behind the baseline until an inevitable Querrey winner or error ended the point.

It was enough for today, but it won’t be enough for Murray to beat Tsonga in the quarterfinals or Soderling in the semis.
