Andy Murray def. Fernando Verdasco 4-6 3-6 6-1 6-4 7-5 in 2013 Wimbledon QF. It’s the 7th time in his career that he has come back from 2 sets behind. Friday he will play his 5th consecutive SF at The Championships against Jerzy Janowicz.
Let’s just talk about this for a sec. This is Jerzy Janowicz winning the Wimbledon quarterfinal versus his fellow Polishman (and friend) Lukasz Kubot.
This dude wanted to play in the qualifiers for the Australian Open but he couldn’t afford to. He traveled the European circuit of tennis tournaments by driving to them in his car and then because he couldn’t afford hotel rooms, he lived out of his car. And now? Now he’s going to the semifinals at Wimbledon.
HOW INCREDIBLE IS THAT??? He is so emotional (understandably) and it’s just inspiring. He couldn’t even give an interview afterwards because he was so overcome with emotion.
Just watch the video…. it’s amazing!
He’ll be playing Andy Murray in the semis and while I’ve always been a Murray fan, I will be so unbelievably happy if this dude continues on to the finals at Wimbledon.
I think this is worth sharing.
