Defending champion Andy Murray takes on Grigor Dimitrov in the men`s singles quarter-final of Wimbledon 2014.

Andy Murray is yet to drop a set this year and the way he is playing, the local crowd will cheer him as he could once again make it to the semi-final of Wimbledon. The Scot has been in superb form this year and credit must go to his new coach - Amelie Mauresmo - who is believed to have turned him into a much calmer player on the court.

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old Bulgarian prodigy, has played some impressive tennis of late and he has all the skills required to end Murray`s campaign. While Murray hasn`t dropped a set so far, Dmitrov has lost two sets and he could further improve his record.

The winner will meet Novak Djokovic or Marin Cilic next in the semi-final.
