Last year he reached the final of the Paris Masters, defeating five top 20 players along the way, including Andy Murray. He became only the second man to make his way through to a Masters Final as a qualifier, before losing to David Ferrer.

His best singles performance at Wimbledon was last year when he reached the 3rd round. Janowicz, who is coached by former Finnish player Kim Tiilikainen, has served 94 aces at this year's tournament and has been broken four times. His top service speed hit 140mph.

Murray insists he 'won't be intimidated' by Janowicz

Andy Murray has insisted he will not be cowed by Jerzy Janowicz when he steps on to Centre Court today to fight for his place in the Wimbledon final.

Janowicz might be a big guy with a big serve, but I won't be intimidated by him.

If anything, it's more likely that a player's endurance ability is something I'd find it hard to compete against. If you know someone can outlast you, it puts a lot more pressure on the beginning of the match.

If someone just has a big shot then you can try to find ways to take that away from them.
