Murray focused on Tsonga
Andy Murray is targeting a first Wimbledon final but insists semi-final opponent Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will be no pushover.
The British number one moved into his fourth consecutive semi-final at SW19 with a four-set victory over Spain's David Ferrer on Wednesday.
It was far from plain sailing, however, and the Scot had to come from a set and a break down to win in four sets, with a 6-7 (5-7) 7-6 (8-6) 6-4 7-6 (7-4) victory in three hours and 52 minutes.
Murray has always enjoyed paying at the All England Club but has yet to reach a final, with Andy Roddick proving too good in the last four in 2009, before Rafael Nadal sent the Brit crashing out at the semi-final stage in 2010 and last year.
But there will be a different opponent on the other side of the net this time around, after the Spaniard's second-round exit, with Tsonga making his second appearance in the last four.
The British fans have not witnessed a home winner in the men's singles since 1936 and, while there is still the giant hurdle of either Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer to overcome if he reaches the final, Murray has made it clear that he is looking to go all the way this year.
"I've had a good run here the last few years, but I'm not satisfied with that. I want to try to go further," he said. "It's been a good tournament so far, but I want it to continue.
"Everyone kept telling me I had such a hard draw and how tough it was going to be to get through, but I managed to do that - I've beaten some very good players."
Sections of the media appear to have already put Murray in the final due to Nadal's absence but the three-time Grand Slam finalist is taking nothing for granted.
"Jo's a tough opponent," he added. "He served I think very well so far this tournament. It's a very different match to playing against Rafa, but he's one of the best grass court players in the world, that's for sure."
