London, July 1: Ahead of their semi final clash, world number one Rafael Nadal has said he wants his opponent Andy Murray to win the Wimbledon title.
"If I have to say one player who I want to win a grand slam, if it''s not me, I would say it is Andy," Nadal was quoted as saying by The Guardian.
"Andy has been there seven times in the semi-finals. When you look at his career he deserves to win a grand slam. I know him as a person. I like him. He is a good guy. That''s why I think it would be fair if he won a grand slam," he added.
Nadal will clash against Andy Murray in Wimbledon's Centre Court later today. The winner will book a place in the tournament final.
Fourth seed Murray is bidding to be the first British player in 75 years to win Wimbledon. He lost the semi final to Nadal last year.
"In the end, it is a game. Everybody wants to win but I feel lucky to be here and I feel lucky about everything that happened to me, so if I lose I can only congratulate Andy," Nadal said.
"I always go with the good people, not with the bad people or arrogant people. I know Andy is not like this. He is a normal guy. He hasn''t changed with all the victories," he added. (ANI)
