Wimbledon 2012: Ferrer: I’ll have to be at my best to beat Murray
David Ferrer is braced for a difficult test against British No1 Andy Murray in Wednesday's quarter-final at Wimbledon
David Ferrer admits he will have to produce his best tennis if he is to beat home favourite Andy Murray in the quarter-final at Wimbledon on Wednesday.
The Spaniard is in fine form, having eased into the last eight with an impressive straight-sets win over Juan Martin del Potro on Tuesday.
Seventh seed Ferrer won his fourth singles title of the year in ‘s-Hertogenbosch in the build-up to Wimbledon following his run to the semi-finals at the French Open, where he was beaten by eventual champion Rafael Nadal.
But the 30-year-old is braced to a tough test against his Scottish opponent, who eased to a straight-sets win over Marin Cilic in the fourth round on Tuesday.
“It’s very difficult to beat Andy on all surfaces, but on a grass court it’s more difficult,” Ferrer said.
“He’s [the] favourite because he’s better than me. I will try to do my best. I will have to play my best tennis to beat him.
“Of course it’s a very important match because it’s the quarter-final of Wimbledon.
“Maybe he has more pressure than me because he’s playing at home. Sometimes it’s not easy. But I think Andy is a great player.”
