Overview

Crowd favourite Andy Murray's campaign has gone as smoothly as it could so far; in fact since 2009 the Scot has reached the final four of Wimbledon every year except 2014 when he lost in the quarter finals to Grigor Dimitrov.

The 29-year-old has improved by leaps and bounds as a player in the last two years as seen by his record — only once in the last 21 Grand Slams has he failed to make it to the quarter-finals. During that time he has won two of those slams, finished runner-up six times and reached the semi-finals eight times.

After Novak Djokovic, it is safe to say that the world number two is the next best player in the world and he will look to continue this excellent form come 6 July and aim for his second Wimbledon title after winning the first one three years back in 2013.

World number 12 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is probably one of the most talented players on the ATP Tour circuit but what lets him down is his inconsistency. When he is good, he is unstoppable but when he is bad he does not look like a man who should be challenging for titles.

The French player has made back-to-back Wimbledon semi-finals in 2011 and 2012 and has beaten Murray in the past. If Tsonga can avoid the injuries that seem to plague him, he is capable of beating the Scot as seen in the past.
