Andy Murray has won the match of his life to take his place in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon.
The feisty Scot showed grit and guts and some astonishing shots to fight back from two sets down to beat Frenchman Richard Gasquet 5-7 3-6 7-6 (7/3) 6-2 6-4 to earn a mouth-watering showdown with Spain’s Rafael Nadal.
And if he does not go on to win the Wimbledon title then at least he can look back at this match and say this was when he seduced the Centre Court crowd.
Gasquet admitted it was difficult to play in the fading light but sportingly refused to blame that for his defeat.
“I was winning two sets to love and 5-4 so I had to win but he fought a lot and when I lost my serve my confidence was down, he played better and the crowd was for him, it was natural. It helped him a lot for sure,” he said.
