Andy Murray through to Wimbledon Semi Finals

It was an Andy Murray Tour de Force in the hot sunshine at Centre Court today as he overwhelmed Juan Carlos Ferrero in three straight sets, 7-5, 6-3, 6-2. After winning the first set, Ferrero managed to break early in the second set, but Murray stepped up a gear and Ferrero didn't get a look in after that. Andy Murray successful mixed up his play against Ferrero, using shots such as the slice backhand to great effect, as Ferrero uses extreme grips and doesn't like to be forced to bend to hit groundstrokes. In the final set, Murray was in a hurry to get through the games, and wasn't hanging around between serves. The whole match took just 1hr 43min.

Murray will play either Hewitt or Roddick in the semi finals.
