Murray reaches 4th Wimbledon semifinal

Murray reaches 4th Wimbledon semifinal

Andy Murray reached his fourth straight Wimbledon semifinal Wednesday, rallying from a set and a break down to hold off David Ferrer of Spain 6-7 (5), 7-6 (6), 6-4, 7-6 (4).

Murray broke Ferrer when he served for the second set at 5-4 and then saved a set point at 6-5 in the tiebreaker to seize the momentum on Centre Court. The match was suspended for about 25 minutes at 5-5 in the fourth set, and Murray once again proved stronger in the tiebreaker when play resumed. He converted his first match point with an ace.

Murray will play Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who reached the semis for the second straight year with a win over Philipp Kohlschreiber.
