Andy Murray comes into the semi-finals as the only player not to drop a set so far, and has spent the least amount of time on court of all the semi-finalists.
But this could be more of a hindrance than a help, as he really has not been tested ahead of Friday’s match.
That is not to say that his matches have all been routine – he has identified areas of his game to improve round on round, but has played himself nicely into form, and by his own admission had played his best match so far.
Murray will face 17-time Slam champion Roger Federer on Friday for a place in the final.
Federer had not conceded a set until his quarter-final against Frenchman, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga with the pair splitting sets respectively until Federer turned the screw with an early break in the decider.
Tsonga tried his best to stay in contention, but it proved to be a step too far.
Their head-to-head makes interesting reading – with Murray now leading 10-9 but has yet to beat Federer in a Slam round, although in 2012, Murray took his first sets off Federer, and beat him in the Olympic Tennis final to win the Gold Medal for Great Britian.
This will be the first time they have met before a Slam final.
