Murray faces the biggest test of his career at Wimbledon

British No 1 Andy Murray faces the biggest test of his career today when he takes one France's Richard Gasquet for a place in the quarter-final at Wimbledon. Victory against Gasquet would see the 21-year-old Scot meet Rafael Nadal in Wednesday's quarter-final.

Murray has never reached the last eight of a Grand Slam tournament crashing out of Wimbledon at the same point two years ago. But the Scot has said that he was neither physically or mentally prepared to progress to the last eight in 2006.

The difference now, according to Britain's No 1, is that he feels capable of winning a grand Slam tournament. While Murray acknowledges the difficulty of today's showdown with 8th seed Gasquet, he is confident in his ability to win: 'Today is going to be a difficult match, the toughest that I have played so far, but I feel like I've got a good chance of winning. It's just up to me to play my tennis, and that's what I've done my whole life.'
