Scenes at Queen's - Murray and Tsonga double up

Andy Murray follows through on a forehand during his semi-final match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Thursday 13 June 2013

Wimbledon.com's thoughts on the hits on the fourth day of the Aegon Championships at The Queen's Club, London...

QUOTE OF THE DAY
"It can be easy to take things for granted sometimes. I played pretty much every Slam for about seven years, and I missed it."
Andy Murray on returning to action

BIG WIN
Lleyton Hewitt. The four-time champion showed he is still capable of his old magic on these grass courts, upsetting former champion Sam Querrey. 
 
DOUBLE DOSES
Both Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga completed two wins in a day on Thursday, as Tsonga battled away to beat compatriot Edouard Roger-Vasselin 6-3, 6-7(2), 6-3, before returning for another three-set battle over Igor Sijsling, winning 7-5, 5-7, 6-3. Murray meanwhile finished his rain-delayed match against Nicolas Mahut 6-3, 7-6(4), before later cruising past Marinko Matosevic 6-2, 6-2.

 
SURPRISE PACKAGES
Denis Kudla and Benjamin Becker, both through to the quarter-finals. The American came through against Kenny De Schepper, while Becker upset seventh seed Alexandr Dolgopolov. 
 
OTHER WINNERS
Juan Martin Del Potro had an easy ride against Dan Evans 6-0, 6-3, Tomas Berdych thundered past Grega Zemlja 6-3, 6-4. Meanwhile, there were doubles wins for Julien Benneteau and Nenad Zimonjic, Benoit Paire and Edouard Roger-Vasselin, Alex Peya and Bruno Soares, Jamie Murray and John Peers, Viktor Troicki and Grega Zemlja, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and Jonathan Smith, Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna.
 
WATCH OUT FOR
Marin Cilic. The defending champion has been flying under the radar this tournament, but pulled off a meaty 4-6, 7-6(5), 7-5 win over Feliciano Lopez, a former Wimbledon quarter-finalist, to reach the last eight.
 
FAMOUS FACES
Well-known tennis fan Pippa Middleton graced The Queen's Club with her presence on Thursday. The Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister has been writing about her love of tennis for Vanity Fair, giving her readers tips on which young players to watch out for. Kevin Spacey was also back in the crowd. Have a read of Pippa's tips for Wimbledon

20:08It brings me no pleasure but it's time to bring the curtain down for another year. Seemed somehow appropriate to leave the last word to Roger Federer. Thanks a billion for reading. What a fortnight, what a final, fast forward to 2015 please...

20:03"I already have seven. It's not like I need another one. But it would have been awfully nice to have it. I think that's what the feeling was of the people, and I felt that... I know they love tennis. They love tennis after we're all gone."
