Social Sharing: 

Andy MurrayAndy Murray managed to battle past David Ferrer in yesterday's Wimbledon quarter-finals to meet Jo Wilfried-Tsonga in tomorrow's semi's. (Murray 4/9 in Wimbledon 2012 betting to beat Tsonga).

Murray has reached the Wimbledon semi-finals for the 4th year in a row, with a massively impressive victory over the Spaniard in 4 sets winning 6-7, 7-6, 6-4, 7-6 following an epic second-set tie-break.

The pair needed to briefly leave the court due to a rain delay during the 4th set, but Murray finished off the victory with confidence and will now bid to be the first British man since Bunny Austin in 1938 to reach the Wimbledon singles final.

But tomorrow's opponent comes in the shape of Jo Wilfried-Tsonga and the Frenchman has warned he can destroy Murray's hopes by toppling him on Friday. Tsonga has accepted that Murray has been a difficult opponent for him in the past, but he came through a tight battle yesterday against Phillipp Kohlschreiber winning 7-6, 4-6, 7-6, 6-2, but will also be sensing his big chance tomorrow and won't want to blow it. (Tsonga 7/4 in Wimbledon 2012 betting to beat Murray).

Tsonga said: "Andy is one the players I don't like to play so much, he returns very well, and does excellent passing shots, he is very quick. I beat him once, and the last time we played on grass it was very close. I will have a chance, but we will see what tomorrow brings."

Murray will face Tsonga tomorrow afternoon at 3.30pm following the earlier semi-final match between defending champion Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.
