Andy Murray has reached his ninth Wimbledon quarter-final after beating Australian rising star Nick Kyrgios with a clinical performance. He won 80per cent of points on the Kyrgios second serve and denied the 21-year-old a single break point.
Murray, who won 7-5 6-1 6-4 on Centre Court, will compete against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Wednesday. He now has won eight matches in a row and joins Pete Sampras and John McEnroe in reaching nine consecutive Wimbledon quarter-finals.
Speaking about the game, Murray said: "The first set was very tight. I managed to get the break at 6-5 but it was tight up to that point,"
He added: “Every year I play here it's the same.
"I try my best to win my matches and go as deep as possible.
"The matches, as you progress, get tougher. Tsonga is next who is a tough grass-court player and I'll have to play very well to win that one."
Kyrgios said: "As soon as I lost the first set, I just lost belief. It obviously felt like a mountain to climb after losing the first.
"He played pretty well, as well. I don't think he missed too many balls either."
