Andy Murray is one match away from his first Wimbledon final
Andy Murray and J. Tsonga will be involved in a big Wimbledon semi-finals clash later tonight. Andy Murray, with an impressive record over his opponent, his current form and home support might give him an edge in the match.

ANDY MURRAY is scheduled to play his fourth straight Wimbledon semi-final later tonight against the Frenchmen, Tsonga. He has failed to reach the finals in his three previous outings. But, this could be his biggest chance to reach his first Wimbledon final and clinch the title, as he has looked in great form throughout the tournament. His opponent, J. Tsonga cannot be taken lightly, as he has the game to defeat any player in the world on a given day.

J. Tsonga may not enjoy a good record against Murray, as he has won only once in the six matches they have played so far. But records are meant to be broken and Tsonga has looked in good shape en route to the semis. His impressive run in the championship includes a win against players such as P. Kohlschreiber, M. Fish, and L. Hewitt, etc. So he would not be short of confidence. The same can be said for Andy Murray, who also has had an impressive run after defeating big players such as D. Ferrer, M. Cilic, and M. Baghdatis, etc. In all his matches, he showed his class and made people sit up and notice his game.

When the fourth and the fifth seed players meet later tonight, they are sure to go all out and book a seat for the finals of the championship. It could be a dream come true for either of the players to reach the finals, as neither have reached the Wimbledon finals. The last Brit to have reached the finals of the championship was Bunny Austin in 1938, reported Daily Mail. Will Murray be the second person in Britain's history to do so?

It is difficult to choose a favourite between the two players, but Murray may have a slight edge over his opponent during the game. His past record against Tsonga and the support from his home fans would add to his advantage. His hunger for a maiden Grand Slam title has been growing every year and he seems to be playing amazing Tennis to win the title. Nadal's exit may have also opened the doors for Murray, else it could have been a Murray and Nadal semis, where Nadal would have a greater chance to progress into the finals. The script seems to have been written for Murray's maiden title, but for that to happen he has to win two matches in a row. The winner of the match would face either Djokovic or Federer, who will also play their semis later tonight to seal a berth in the finals of the Championship.
