For Murray, the weight of the entire country of England is once again on his shoulders. Every year that the youngster has entered this event, he has been Britain’s best hope to hang on to its championship for the first time since Fred Perry won the event way back in 1936. Murray winning Wimbledon would most likely rival the Three Lions winning the World Cup in South Africa, but at least the disappointment won’t be there for the tennis star as it is for the soccer team. Murray continues to improve here at Wimbledon. He has reached the third round once, the fourth round once, and has now been a quarterfinalist once and a semifinalist twice. If he were to win on Friday, it would be the third time in his career that he would be in a Grand Slam Final, though he has yet to actually win a major championship in his career. A first set loss to Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarterfinals is the only set that Murray has dropped during this entire tournament. Three straight ranked players have fallen to the Brit, and he hopes to claim his biggest scalp on Friday against the #2 player in the world.

Roger Federer’s exit from the All England Club has set up Nadal to take his second career Wimbledon title. He didn’t play in this event last year due to injury, but in his most recent tournament here in London, Nadal walked away with the championship, beating Federer in an epic five set match. It marked the third straight year that he was a finalist in the event, only to lose to the Swiss champion the previous two appearances. Nadal has made it to 14 quarterfinals in his L/16 entries into Grand Slam events. He already has the French Open under his belt from last month and would love nothing more than to pull off the second double of his career. Rafa has looked suspect at times in this tournament, needing five sets to dismiss both second round foe Robin Haase and third round opponent Philipp Petzschner. However, since that point, Nadal has only lost one set, and that came in the opening set against #6 Robin Soderling in the quarterfinals.

There is no doubt that Nadal is going to be the better player on the court during this match, but he is definitely going to be facing a home court disadvantage, to say the least. Murray is on fire right now, and we believe that this may be his time. The world would love to see a Djokovic/Murray finale, as these are the two men that are the face of tennis in the future, and we think that is exactly what is happening.
