Andy Murray advanced to the Wimbledon men's semifinals with a straight-sets victory over Spain's Feliciano Lopez in the quarterfinals on Wednesday, advancing 6-3-,6-4,6-4. Murray will face the winner of the Rafael Nadal-Mardy Fish quarterfinal. Nadal beat Murray in last year's semifinal.
The Scotland-born Murray is attempting to become the first British tennis player to win a Grand Slam since 1936. No Brit has even reached Wimbledon's final since 1938.
Murray, who has reached three Grand Slam finals since 2008, seems to be playing well enough to change all that. He was never broken on Wednesday, despite getting in just 56 percent of his first-serves. He ended up winning 65 percent of points on his second serve, though.
The first break of the match came with Murray already leading 3-2 in the first set. Lopez managed to stave off the first break point, but surrendered the break on the second opportunity. Murray then broke at 1-1 in the second set, and only faced two break points of his own all match.
