A couple of milestones were set last yesterday at Wimbledon – It was the match that ended the latest in Wimbledon’s history, at 10:39 PM and it was also the first one to be played from top to bottom under the new roof, the first indoors match at Wimbledon. And yes, Andy Murray is still on track on maybe becoming the first Brit to win Wimbledon since 1936 (Fred Perry). Murray beat Stanislas Wawrinka in five sets – 2-6, 6-3, 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 and most would agree that it was the best tennis played so far in this tournament. “I’ll have a pretty deep sleep after that one,” Murray said after the match.
Murray’s fourth round win over Wawrinka elevated him into the quarter finals and he will face Spain’s Juan Carlos Ferrero, winner of the 2003 Roland Garros.
