Andy Murray has said the Wimbledon crowds 'give him a big lift' as he secured his place in this year's quarter finals.

Speaking after he sailed through three straight sets to beat South African Kevin Anderson he said: "I always try to concentrate when I'm on court. I don't worry about what's going on around me.
