Djokovic, Murray face final hurdle

AP, LONDON

Not that anybody in Britain cares.

Murray carries the hopes of his country with him every time he steps foot on the grass at Wimbledon.

He has put a lot behind him since he appeared in last year’s final and lost to Roger Federer. He won the London Olympics gold medal on Centre Court, then followed that with his US Open victory to end Britain’s 76-year drought for a male Grand Slam trophy winner.

“I think I’ll be probably in a better place mentally,” Murray said. “I would hope so just because I’ve been there before. I won a Grand Slam. I would hope I would be a little bit calmer going into Sunday [today], but you don’t know. You don’t decide that. I might wake up on Sunday and be unbelievably nervous, more nervous than I ever have been before.”
