Will Wimbledon be Andy Murray's maiden Grand Slam title?
Andy Murray looks in great touch to win his first Grand Slam title, but for that to happen he has to defeat Tsonga in the semi-finals and defeat the winner of the match between Djokovic and Federer. If he does so, it will be his first Grand Slam title of his career.

WHEN WILL Andy Murray win his first Grand Slam title? This question has been asked several times in the recent past and it has once again resurfaced, as he has reached the semi-finals of the Wimbledon. He played out an emphatic game to knock out D. Ferrer from the quarter-finals of the competition. The score read 6-7, 7-6, 6-4 and 7-6, where the game lasted for 3 hours and 52 minutes, reported BBC. Will this be his year?

The Englishman has been in red hot form during the championship. He has defeated well known players of the circuit, such as N. Davydenko, I. Karlovic, M. Baghdatis, M. Cilic and the latest being D. Ferrer. Hence, he must be a very confident player, when he takes on J. Tsonga in the semi-finals of the competition. The Big Frenchmen also has had a good outing this season, but Murray with full support of his home crowd might be the favourite. Andy Murray enjoys an impressive record off late against the Frenchmen.

Murray has shown his class against all his opponents that he has encountered in the championship so far. His groundstrokes from the baseline has been really impressive along with the force which he uses to hit shots down the line reflects his form. He has been striking the ball with the centre of the racquet with acute precision. He has just been improving every time he takes to the court and fans during his semi-finals clash would want to see similar performances, which has helped him reach the business end of the competition.

Murray has been one of the finest players of the modern era not to have won a Grand Clam title. He has reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon on last three counts, but failed to reach the last two. This time he has a greater chance. He has reached the finals of other Grand Slams such as the Australian Open and the US Open, but never in Wimbledon's history.

If records are meant to be to broken, then it is an opportune time for the player to reach the finals in Nadal's absence and win the title, irrespective of the opponent during the finals, Djoikovic or Federer. If he does so, the Brits would be taking a huge sigh of relief, as they are waiting for the picture perfect moment of a British player lifting the Wimbledon title in his arms. Will this be the front page photograph in major newspapers, after the finals are concluded?
