Andy Murray has claimed he is ready to avenge last year's semi-final defeat to Rafael Nadal and reach his first Wimbledon final.
The British number one booked his place in the semi-finals with a straight sets 6-3 6-4 6-4 victory over Nadal's countryman Feliciano Lopez, and will now face World number one on Friday.
Murray and Nadal have met six times before at grand slams, with the 25-year-old Spaniard winning four of those matches, including their last two semi-finals.
After his quarter-final win against Lopez, Murray said: "I believe I can win against [Nadal]. I had chances last year. I was up a break in the third set, had set point on my serve in the second set. I think there was only one break in the first set.
"We both played good tennis. But I just have to have a better game plan. Sometimes it comes down to strategy. Sometimes it comes down to having more experience. I just have to go out there and play well and serve well and believe, and I'll have a chance."
