Murray staying focused after another Wimbledon victory

28 June 2013 / 21:08

Andy Murray insists he won't buckle under the weight of national expectation after another straight sets win at Wimbledon.

The number two seed brushed past Spain's Tommy Robredo 6-2, 6-4, 7-5 in just two hours and has reached the last 16 without dropping a set and barely breaking sweat.

But with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer both ousted early at the All England Club, last year's beaten finalist is refusing to look too far ahead in the future.

"There's a lot more pressure on me now with them being out. I don't really read the papers but I see the headlines and it's not that helpful," he said.

"You need to be professional enough to not let that stuff bother you and just concentrate on each match. I think I did a good job of that and I think this was my best match of yet.

"Upsets are never far away and you have to be very focused on your game to avoid that."

Murray will take on either Russia's Mikhail Youzhny or Serbia's Victor Troicki in the fourth round - and will have the advantage of an extra day's rest after their match was held over due to bad weather.

"Both are tough opponents," he added.

"Youzhny is a very good grass court player and he had a pretty tight match with Federer in the Halle final. He's been in the second week numerous times, he likes the courts and is very talented.

"I've had some good matches with Troicki in the past and I know his game well and played him here a few years ago.

"He didn't do so well last year but this year he is playing a lot better and he's changed coaches. He's a good player and extremely quick around the court."
