Spain’s David Ferrer was conquered by British number one Andy Murray in the quarter-finals of the Wimbledon on Wednesday but he is backing the Brit to win a Grand Slam.
Ferrer said, "Of course Andy Murray has a chance to win Wimbledon. He's an unbelievable player. He deserves to win a grand slam."
Murray had lost the opener and was down a break at 4-5 in the second set but fought back to topple the Spaniard in four sets 6-7(5), 7-6(6), 6-4, 7-6(4) to reach his fourth straight semi-final at the All England Club.
The Brit will try to advance to the title match for the first time, as he lost to Andy Roddick in 2009 and Spain’s Rafael Nadal on the last two occasions.
When Murray was asked when was his best chance to reach the final, he replied "I think when I played Roddick in the semis was also a good chance. I had a good record against him before the match. He did play unbelievable in the semis, and especially in the final that year.”
The Brit will face France’s fifth seed, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, in this year’s semi-final on Friday.
Murray said, talking about his chances in the upcoming match, "I'm in a good position, that's for sure. Whether it's the best chance or not, I'm not sure. But I've been in this position a few times now and want to push on."
The 25-year-old is aiming to become the first British player to win any Grand Slam since Fred Perry captured the Wimbledon crown for the last time in 1936.
