British hopeful Andy Murray won his quarterfinal match Thursday at the Olympics, to the delight of a Court 1 crowd that included Prince William and his wife, Kate.
Murray, seeded No. 3, became the first men’s semifinalist at Wimbledon 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 the runner-up to Roger Federer at Wimbledon last month. His opponent Friday will be the winner of the quarterfinal match between No. 2 Novak Djokovic and No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
