(June 27, 2014) WIMBLEDON – Defending Wimbledon champion Andy Murray continued his streak on not losing a set this fortnight at Wimbledon. He has now won 16 straight matches at the All England Club by beating Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain 6-2, 6-3, 6-2. The streak includes his road to the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics, which was held Wimbledon.
Murray dominated the match with 44 winners.
Murray became the first British man to win the Wimbledon title since Fred Perry in 1936.
Murray assessed his first week of the fortnight:
“I played well in all the matches. I mean, I was very happy with the way I played today. More in the third set, I played a bad game on my serve at 4-Love. I could have done a little bit better there.
“But apart from that, it’s been good. I served well, moved well. It’s been solid so far.”
Murray will face Marin Cilic next.
“It will be a tough match,” said the Scot. “He’s a big guy with a big game. He’s played some very good tennis this year. Probably been his best year on the tour so far in terms of consistency. It will be tough.
“He serves well, so I’ll need to have my return game on. Play a tough match to beat him. But he’s playing very well this year.”
