Wimbledon - Murray Powers Into Quarters, Meets Ferrer

Andy Murray put in a solid performance at Wimbledon on Tuesday, finishing off his rain-delayed match against Marin Cilic to win 7-5, 6-2, 6-3. The Scot, who has struggled with his form so far at this year's event, seemed calm and comfortable out on court.

"Obviously in matches you kind of can build momentum and build leads, and then when you stop, once you come back out again, you feel like you're starting off from square one," Murray said afterwards. "But I did well today.

He started the third set well. He had a few chances. I came up with some big serves. I served very well in the third set especially. There were three, four stops or something. It's not easy." He will next face David Ferrer, who scored a surprisingly easy win over Juan Martin Del Potro, beating the former US Open champ 6-3, 6-2, 6-3.

“Today was one of my best matches [on a grass] court,” Ferrer beamed afterwards. “But I'm not sure if is my best or not. At Wimbledon, there is a lot of wind. On [an] indoor court, [under a] roof, it is easier for to play.

The ball does not move and this is more comfortable for us.” It is Ferrer's first quarter-final at Wimbledon.
