Murray sets up Djokovic clash in US
02 Sep 2014 11:11
Andy Murray feels he is close to hitting top form after an impressive victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga last night set up a blockbuster US Open quarter-final against Novak Djokovic.
-
Murray had not beaten a top-10 player since his emotional victory over Djokovic to win Wimbledon more than a year ago but played a very fine match in the New York heat to defeat ninth seed Tsonga 7-5 7-5 6-4.
-
It maintained the Scot's impressive record of having reached at least the quarter-finals of every grand slam tournament he has played in for the past four years.
-
The performance was certainly a step up from Murray's first three matches in New York, with his only two lapses coming at the start of the second and third sets and quickly corrected.
-
The eighth seed said: "I don't feel like I'm that far away from playing my best tennis. It's still obviously a long way from trying to win the tournament but it's only nine sets now, three matches, and I'll just try and take it one set at a time.
-
"I'm maybe five, six days away from potentially winning another grand slam. I know there is a lot of work to be done between now and then.
-
"But I'm putting everything out there on the courts, it's the last slam of the year. I hope I can play well."
