Andy Murray received his OBE yesterday. Today he has a further honour; featuring in TPFTennis’s Classic Match of the Week!
Instead of picking the fantastic Wimbledon final of this year (which will no doubt be featured at a later date), I have decided to pick his quarter-final victory over Fernando Verdasco. Perhaps more overshadowed by the semi-final and final exploits, this victory was by no means a simple pass into the final for Britain’s number one.
Two sets down and right under the cosh against a left-handed magician, Murray had to dig deep – thankfully he did, putting the nation and their hopes through the mill in the process. Re-watch the highlights below.
