| SPAIN'S last hope at Wimbledon is still hanging on and will face the only British competitor tomorrow in the quarter finals.
David Ferrer, 30, from Jávea, is the one Spaniard still standing at the All-England Lawn Club after Rafa Nadal's shock defeat and compatriots Fernando Verdasco and Nicolás Almagro subsequently crashing out.
His fourth-round match against Argentina's Juan Martín del Potro (pictured, left) took just under two hours and ended on 6-3, 6-2 and 6-3 after what Ferrer called his best-ever playing.
And tomorrow, the pressure will be on for the world number five, since the British spectators will be egging on his rival, Scotland's Andy Murray, their only ambassador for the sport and sole hope of a national win on home turf.
“I've always tried to win, ever since I was 12 years old – and against Murray I'll be concentrating on playing every point and giving it my all,” Ferrer (pictured, right) told reporters.
Spanish sports fans will be waiting with bated breath tomorrow as Ferrer attempts to win his place in the only Grand Slam semi-final he has not yet reached in his career.
Murray has never won Wimbledon either, and the last time he played Ferrer was at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris, when he lost.
