Murray versus Janowicz, how do they compare?

  • 5 July 2013
Andy Murray and Jerzy Janowicz

Andy Murray faces Polish player Jerzy Janowicz at the Wimbledon semi-final later.

It's a high pressure match for Murray who will be hoping that this year he can finally win the British Grand Slam.

Murray is ranked the second best player in the world at the moment and Janowicz is 24th but that doesn't necessarily mean it will be easy for Murray to win. Janowicz has a fast, powerful serve and is taller than Murray.

Andy's even been getting advice from Sir Alex Ferguson so what are his chances?
