London, July 4: British number one tennis player Andy Murray's progress in the Wimbledon quarterfinal has raised the hopes of him reaching the final among the whole nation, which has resulted in a steep soar in the prices of tickets with many expecting it reach 25,000 pounds per ticket.
No British player has been able to win the Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936, and Murray's advancement to quarterfinals has once again raised hopes.
"Every time he wins, ticket prices for the men's semi-finals and final jump by 30 per cent as the nation's hopes are raised," The Daily Express quoted Edward Parkinson, director of online ticket exchange Viagogo UK, as saying.
"Tickets for the men's final are currently trading at £12,000. If he keeps winning, I expect some seats will go for twice this level, if not more," he added. (ANI)
