Wimbledon: No. 4 Andy Murray Starts Slow, But Finishes Fast Against No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

After a slow, somewhat passive start, No.4 Andy Murray has kept British hopes alive with a 4-6, 7-6(5), 6-2, 6-2 over No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Centre Court, finishing up the Gentlemen’s Singles quarterfinals with an eventually convincing win.

This match completely swung in the second set tiebreak, with Tsonga making an enormous mistake by letting an easy Murray ball go past him, where it landed on the baseline. Murray morphed into his ridiculously fired up self from then on, and Tsonga never recovered.

So the semifinals are now set. Tomas Berdych vs. Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray vs. Rafael Nadal. Whoever wins the second final will be the heavy favorite in the final, but that really hasn’t meant anything so far.
