Murray could win Wimbledon with his ladys touch

British tennis star Andy Murray could win this years Wimbledon because he has a womans touch, according to 1977 womens champion Virginia Wade.

London, June 29 : British tennis star Andy Murray could win this year's Wimbledon because he has a woman's touch, according to 1977 women's champion Virginia Wade.

Wade says Murray has variety in his game as his mum Judy coached him as a kid.

The Sun quoted Wade, as saying: "She was such a good coach, she added a few more touch shots to his game rather than just all big boomers."

Murray aims to reach the quarter-finals at Wimbledon for the second year running when he takes on Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka on Centre Court this afternoon.

Wade, Britain's last singles champion at the All England Club, declared: "Andy has got better and better. The guy has got so many options to his game. His best asset is that he retrieves so well and his defensive game is so good. But he also has an aggressive game. He is a lot smarter than a lot of tennis players I see."

American legend John McEnroe said: "Andy's learned from his defeats really well over the last couple of years and just continued his good work against Viktor Troicki on Saturday to make the final 16. If you look back at his form in the last year or so, he beat Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals at the US Open last September

"And he's taken the world No 3 spot from Novak Djokovic and made it his own. He's not doing too bad," he added.
