Jerzy Janowicz admits he is hoping pressure and expectations of British public will work against Andy Murray when they meet in Wimbledon semi-finals on Friday.

Janowicz has developed a reputation for being a big-hitter and demonstrated that power in his quarter-final match when he slammed 30 aces down to defeat compatriot Lukasz Kubot 7-5 6-4 6-4.

The 22-year-old is Poland’s first man to reach the last four of a Grand Slam and the youngest male to reach the semi-finals at SW19 since Murray in 2009.

Although the youngster admits it is new territory for him, he insists anything that happens from this point on is a bonus, whereas his opponent is expected to go all the way.

Murray booked his place in the semis after a tricky match with Fernando Verdasco, coming back from two sets down to win the match in dramatic style.

The Scot may be suffering from fatigue when he steps out on to Centre Court and Janowicz is hoping to take full advantage of having extra time to recover from his own quarter-final match.
