Andy Murray's Wimbledon Title Prospect Enhances

Andy Murray beat Lu Yen-hsun to reach third round at Wimbledon 2013 avenging an embarrassing defeat at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Murray took just two hours to get past Lu Yen-hsun with 6-3, 6-3, 7-5, scorecard. He might have served a little more consistently but he hit 11 aces and 41 clean winners, with only 14 unforced errors.

While other players in the tournament seemed to be falling in an undignified heap, Andy Murray kept his nerve and his footing to advance to round three with a quietly efficient dismissal of Lu Yen-hsun on Court No.1, where Rafael Nadal made a shock exit on day one and Victoria Azarenka took the tumbles on day two that put her out of the competition.

Andy Murray'S chances of making history by breaking a 77-year British sporting jinx at Wimbledon have been dramatically enhanced by the shock exits of heavyweights like Roger Federer, the defending champion, Rafael Nadal and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The decimation of the lower half of the men's singles draw leaves Murray with Nicolas Almagro, as his highest-ranked opponent on a route to the final.
