Murray keeps gold hopes alive
Wimbledon - British hopeful Andy Murray won his quarter-final on Thursday at the Olympics, delighting a Wimbledon crowd that featured Prince William and wife Kate.
Murray, seeded No 3, became the first men's semi-finalist by beating No 11 Nicolas Almagro of Spain, 6-4, 6-1.
Murray hit 15 aces to one for Almagro and never faced a break point. He had 29 winners and just seven unforced errors.
The Scotsman was runner-up to Roger Federer at Wimbledon last month. His opponent on Friday will be the winner of the quarter-final between No 2 Novak Djokovic and No 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
