Andy Murray will be strong favourite to reach the Olympic semi-finals when he comes up against Spanish clay-court Nicolas Almagro in Thursday's quarter-finals.

Almagro was ranked inside the top ten earlier this year but the Spaniard's success is mainly down to his success in small clay-court events around the world, rather than sterling performances in the Masters 1000 tournaments and the slams. Almagro has never quite produced his best in the majors and it's a massive surprise to see him in the latter stages of a grass-court event featuring the best in the world.

However the Olympics have inspired him and he's taken advantage of a very kind draw which resulted from Tomas Berdych's shock first round defeat. However Murray definitely won't be taking him lightly.  

"The reason why his ranking has gone into the Top 10 is because he's been playing better on the other surfaces this year,” Murray said. “He's a tough player. He takes a lot of risk on the court. He goes for his shots, doesn't hold back. He doesn't have loads of variation, but he can overpower you. He has a big serve, as well. That's why he's been in the Top 10 for the best part of this year. After this week, he won't be far off still being in it. It's going to be a tough match. I'll need to play well to win. If I serve like I did the last couple sets [against Baghdatis], that will help me out a lot.”

Murray is feeling battle hardened after that bruising three set clash with Baghdatis and he should pull through this one to set up a likely semi-final with Novak Djokovic.
