The marvelous Andy Murray winning styles strikes back again in Wimbledon. The champion advanced to quarterfinals by winning against Kevin Anderson with 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (6) score. Murray needs one more round to meet and play against Novak Djokovic. He said all the matches are tough and everyone in the quarterfinals are playing top tennis. Andy needs to focus and gives his 200% for his challengers to get tense and have a hard time to take home the victory.

“Some days you get lucky with that,” Murray said. “Some days you don’t. You pretty much guess a lot of the time. Sometimes you go the wrong way and sometimes you go the right way, and thankfully today I picked a few good ones.”

This is the seventh time that Murray overcame the gentle giant’s serve and tactics to get to the Wimbledon quarter-finals.  Anderson wins the game as Murray hits a backhand longer while the Scot dare the call but it was only a waste of time.Indeed Murray is a very tough player and the opponent failed to win over him even if he did his best too.

The rain is teeming down outside and  Andy Murray’s fans were under umbrella while watching their hero win. They did not leave him  even if it rained and supported Murray all the way.

Samantha Murray also mentioned that it is a privileged for her to play with Sharapova and it’s not the biggest match of her life.

But of course Maria Sharapova did not fail her followers so she played merciless and take home the ace!
