Vasek Pospisil vs Andy Murray | Wednesday 8 July, 2015 | Wimbledon | 13.00

Andy Murray, ranked No. 3 in the world, is looking to make his third Wimbledon final this year, but before that he needs to outlast a tough test in Canada’s Vasek Pospisil on Wednesday.

Reaching his eighth consecutive quarter final was not an easy task for Murray, who had to face 6-foot-11 Croatian Ivo Karlovic, who is known for his aces on Monday. But the Briton was able to survive after more than three hours with a 7-6 (9-7) 6-4 5-7 6-4 win.

Meanwhile, Pospisil defeated Serbia’s Viktor Troicki in another lengthy match. After losing the first two sets, Pospisil, found his rhythm and managed to come out on top, winning 4-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-3, 6-3.

Pospisil has had a lot more court time at Wimbledon this year than Murray, having played doubles with his American partner Jack Sock in which they lost 8-6 in the final set.

“Maybe he’s a little bit fatigued,” Murray said. “So if that is the case, and I won’t bank on that being the case, but if that is the case, I’ll try to use that to my advantage.

“Although my match [against Karlovic] was quite long, the rallies aren’t particularly long, and it’s not as physical. So I feel pretty fresh.”

Pospisil is familiar with playing on the big stage at Wimbledon after he won the doubles title in 2014 with Jack Sock, but it is new territory for him in the singles format, having never gone beyond the third round of a Grand Slam event until he beat Britain’s James Ward on Saturday.

This is the fourth time that these two competitors will meet on the professional tour, with Murray leading the head to head series 3-0.  The Canadian no.2 is, however, not fazed by the prospect of taking on Andy Murray in front of a partisan crowd at Centre Court.

“I like playing in front of big crowds, in general – doesn’t matter if they are against me or cheering for me,” the 25-year-old said.

“It’s going to be obviously a tough one. He’s had a great result here over the years. Obviously he’s the big, one of the big four, as they say.

“But I think I’m serving well, I’m playing well. I know I will have my hands full and I have to go out there and play to the best of my abilities. And that’s what I plan on doing.”
