Murray marches into Queen's quarter-finals

18 June 2015 / 13:05

Andy Murray is preparing himself for another tough challenge after booking his spot in the Queen’s quarter-finals with victory over Fernando Verdasco.

After seeing off the challenge of Yen-Hsun Lu on Tuesday, Murray was back in action, this time against hard-hitting Spaniard Verdasco.

But despite the tough challenge in front of him, the British number one was in no mood to slow down and wrapped up another straight sets victory as he won 7-5 6-4.

Up next for Murray is Gilles Muller in the quarter-final after the Luxembourg star seeing off defending champion Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets, all of which is keeping the Scot on his toes.

“It was a tricky match, Fernando is an extremely powerful guy,” Murray said. “Some of the shots he hits are fantastic and you don’t have a chance to get into some rallies.

“He didn’t serve so well which gave me some opportunities and I thought I played a little bit better than the first match.

“I saw that Gilles served 37 aces in his first round and I thought to myself that I don’t serve that many in the whole year so it will be difficult.”
