Are Andy Murray fans being a bit too over-confident after Novak Djokovic's exit?


Novak Djokovic is out of Wimbledon and Andy Murray is going to win Wimbledon.

That was the overwhelming, if slightly presumptuous, verdict on Twitter when news filtered through that the world number one - and routine Murray nemesis - had been beaten by Sam Querrey on an outside court.

The score was even flashed up on the Centre Court scoreboard midway through Murray's straight-sets win over John Millman. The crowd gasped with delight, Judy Murray couldn't hide her smile when she saw it and Twitter whirred with delight.

No pressure Andy, but people are pretty convinced Wimbledon is yours to lose now...

While everyone off the court was losing their heads, Murray showed he was very much focused on the here and now as he broke down the challenge of Aussie John Millman to win 6-3 7-5 6-2 and progress to the fourth round.

Yeah, that's right. The fourth round. He still has a week to negotiate just to get the final.

Afterwards Murray dismissed the importance of Djokovic's loss - even if he was doing cartwheels inside - but if that is going to ramp up the pressure on Murray, he might want to steer clear of Twitter tonight.

And for those who still think Murray's got Wimbledon in the bag, it's probably worth remembering this guy.

Oh, yeah that guy. With 17 Grand Slam titles. He might be in with a chance too.
