Wimbledon 2012: Andy Murray Advances With Win Over Milan Cilic

On Monday, Andy Murray finally had the chance to finish his match against Milan Cilic that had been postponed on Monday due to rain. Despite the frustration he felt with the postponement, it was well worth the wait as Murray advanced to the Quarterfinal round of the 2012 Wimbledon Tournament with the straight set victory, 7-5, 6-2, 6-3.

However, it didn't change that Murray was irritated with all the starting and stopping that occurred prior to the match's resolution because of the rain.

Via ESPN.com:

"We stopped obviously a lot," Murray said. "You're always a little bit edgy when you come out after a rain delay when you have the momentum with you. You stop, and then you come back out, and it feels a bit like you start from scratch again. I needed to serve well today and I got a lot of free points that helped me out."

The full schedule and brackets can each be found at Wimbledon's official site.
