After winning an intense, hotly contest third set 7-5 over Marcos Baghdatis at around 10:30 p.m. local time, Andy Murray had only 30 minutes to try to finish the fourth set and complete his victory before Wimbledon officials canceled his party. They had set an 11 p.m. cutoff time; no matter where the match was at 11 p.m., it would be suspended.
Luckily for Murray and tennis fans everywhere, that point would soon be moot. After dropping the second set to Baghdatis, the 2006 Australian Open runner-up, 6-3, and falling behind a break in the third, Murray stormed back ahead, and pounded Baghdatis mercilessly to win the fourth set and the match, 7-5, 3-6, 7-5, 6-1.
With the victory, Murray advances to the fourth round and the second week in his continued quest to at least reach the final but, hopefully, win Wimbledon to become to first Brit to do so since Fred Perry in 1936. His side of the draw is remarkably clear after Rafael Nadal's historic upset in the second round, so anything less than the final will be seen as an abject failure. In years past, Murray has reached the semis but had a built-in excuse, as he's not nearly as good as the world's Top 3 players.
