Nadal Defies Injury To Face Andy Murray
By Staff
Rafael Nadal, the World No. 2 strongly tipped to be Federer's downfall, defeated his 17th seed opponent in a 6-3, 6-3, 6-1 victory despite suffering an early injury to his right knee.

Echoes of a past comeback against the Spanish Mikhail Youzhny were no doubt in his head - in one of their prior matches Nadal came from two sets down to win; a mirror of Andy Murray's victory earlier this week.

In the first set Youzhny 3-1 and then 4-2 lead in two games before ultimately losing the first and all sets. Nadal looked to be the clear favourite on paper, however he has won only a slim majority of their last ten matches, emerging victor in just six.

Britain's Andy Murray came from two sets down to defeat the French No. 1 Richard Gasquet 5-7; 3-6; 7-6 (7-3); 6-2; 6-4, was unfazed by his first tough, and indeed first ever, Wimbledon quarter-final. He promised fans he could win the tournament.

'It felt like that since the start of the tournament,' the 21-year-old Scot said. 'I'm going to have to try and recover really well... [Nadal is] favourite for the match but I believe I can win.' Murray's best odds to defeat Nadal come courtesy of Pinnacle, who give him 41/10 to win. He is 9/2 to reach the final and 862/41 to win the whole championships.
