Murray 'not satisfied with quarter final'

Andy Murray takes to the court for his quarter-final clash against Spain's Juan Carlos Ferrero at Wimbledon this afternoon, and the Scotsman has said to The Guardian that he won't be satisfied by anything other than winning the whole thing.

'It's not like you're going to be satisfied with a quarter-final,' he said, remembering last year's crushing defeat to Rafael Nadal. 'I've got the chance to go further than I did last year, and to win the tournament. That's my goal and that's the change in my mentality this time.'

Murray takes to Centre Court after Roger Federer finishes his match against Ivo Karlovic, and the world number three is hoping to go one better than his second place in the US Open, which he lost to the Swiss legend.

'Really it's not until you get past the quarter-final stage, or get to the final of a slam like I did at the US Open, that you understand what that feels like. You come up against someone like Nadal who has done it over and over again, and their mentality is going to be better than yours because it's normal for them to get into the latter stages of tournaments. And it wasn't until after last year's Wimbledon that I was able to do that on a consistent basis.'
