Wimbledon 2012 Results: Bracket Provides Andy Murray with Best Chance for Win
Andy Murray has been one of the best tennis players in the world over his career. However, without a Grand Slam title, he will never be among the sport's elite.
Fortunately, he has a good chance to win Wimbledon this year.
This week, Murray defeated David Ferrer in a very close quarterfinal match that went to three different tiebreakers. He has now reached the semifinals for the fourth year in a row. The problem is, he has not won any of those matches in the past.
This year should be different.
First, a second-round upset of Rafael Nadal allows the British competitor to avoid any of the "Big Three" until the final.
In addition, of all the Grand Slam tournaments, Wimbledon provides Murray with the best chance to win. He receives great support from the British fans, and he has been at his best in his career on grass courts.
Even with two final appearances in the Australian Open, the No. 4 player in the world has played his best overall at Wimbledon, winning 80 percent of his matches. Overall, his 49-13 record on grass is better than any other surface.
The match against Ferrer was hard fought. A few points going the other way could have been enough to sway the entire contest. Still, Murray should gain some confidence from defeating a quality opponent and use that momentum towards the next round.
It will a difficult trip for Murray to become the first British man to win Wimbledon since 1936. If he defeats Tsonga, he will have to face the winner of Federer and Djokovic in the final.
Having said that, if Murray wants to put himself in the category of the best in the world, he needs to take care of business and win the next two matches.
The truth is, he might not get a better opportunity.
