Andy Murray faces Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at Wimbledon today with a place in the semi-finals at stake.

Murray has an excellent record against 12th seed Tsonga having beaten him 12 times from 14 meetings.

Two of those matches came at Wimbledon, with Murray defeating the Frenchman in the quarter-finals in 2010 and the semi-finals two years later.

"Both matches were hard," said Murray. "They weren't easy. A few of the sets came down to just a couple of points.

"I know Tsonga is one of the best grass-court players in the world. If he plays well, I'm not on my game, I can lose that match for sure."
