Murray to blitz tiring American

A straight sets victory in the fourth round was just what Andy Murray needed and he pulled it out of the bag against Benoit Paire on Centre Court on Monday. With Johanna Konta having gotten through to the last eight as well, this is the first time since 1973 that there has been a Brit in the last eight of both the men’s and women’s draws at Wimbledon in the same year.

This is the 10th straight Wimbledon quarter final appearance for Murray now and aside from a slow start on his serve, Murray laid down enough dominance against Paire to come through in straight sets. It was a good test nonetheless for Murray because the Frenchman threw all sorts of unpredictable stuff at him, from big serves to drop shots and volleys. So Murray was kept on his toes but he marches through now to meet America’s Sam Querrey for a place in the semi finals.

Murray and Querrey did meet up earlier this year in the Australian Open Andy Murray won that one in straight sets. The world number one dominates the head to head against Querrey 7-1 and his only defeat against the American was in the final of California back in 2010. This is a big quarter final match up and it is worth looking at a Murray 3-1 set victory at bet365 for a price of 11/4 because the Brit still does look vulnerable in dropping sets. He can be backed at 4/5 with Bet365 to win in straight sets.

But his class and experience should win out against the American. Querrey has had some epic battles to get to the quarter finals. In the third round he just managed to outlast Jo-Wilfried Tsonga over five sets and then he was back in another five set duel as he battled South Africa’s Kevin Anderson on Monday. While Murray was cruising through in straight sets, Querrey had to dig deep including having to bounce back from losing a 13-11 tie break in the fourth to get past Anderson.

So Murray should be comfortable in this one to find his way through to the semi finals. Those extended matches that Querrey has battled through in the last two rounds won’t help his chances in this one and Murray hasn’t dropped a set in his two previous clashes with the American on grass. One of those was at Wimbledon back in 2010 in the round of sixteen which Murray eased through. Murray is 1/7 odds on for the match win in this one with Querrey out at 9/2.
