Wimbledon 2013: Andy Murray happy to handle nation's hopes

Losing to Roger Federer in last year's Wimbledon final provoked a tearful response from Murray.

London: Andy Murray insists he can cope with the burden of shouldering a nation's growing expectations that he will finally end the 77-year wait for a British man to win Wimbledon.

Murray was in commanding form once again as he swept into the quarter-finals with a 6-4, 7-6, 6-1 win over Russian 20th seed Mikhail Youzhny on Monday.

The world number two has yet to drop a set in his first four matches and looked more at ease than ever in the All England Club spotlight as he prepares for a last eight clash with Spain's Fernando Verdasco on Wednesday.
