Jerzy Janowicz and Andy Murray

Every day, Polish workers (but not only) show Brits what it means to work. Will a Polish journeyman circuit player named Jerzy Janowicz show world number two Andy Murray what it means to play tennis? If you go by what the betting odds show with the bookies, there is little chance of that. But there is also a lot of local support for no reason other than that he is a fellow Brit hidden in the money put on Andy Murray.

Jerzy Janowicz


Jerzy Janowicz has managed to get through to the semi final of Wimbledon. While he had none of the giant stumbling blocks in his way to get there, he had to play to get there. Anyone reaching that stage in a grand slam tournament knows how to play tennis, have no doubt about that. Andy Murray won't be taking him lightly, that is for sure. And Jerzy Janowicz has the weapons to trouble Andy Murray. That is, if he manages to recover from the emotional exhaustion after coming through the all Polish quarter final against Lukasz Kubot.

The fastest serve in Wimbledon didn't come from Andy Murray, but from the player due to face him. These serves come from sky high, too. If you are the first man to ever reach a semi final at a grand slam tournament, you don't have anything to loose. That makes Jerzy Janowicz that much more dangerous, because he can search the lines. If it works, fine; if doesn't, so what? He already made history. And it isn't just his serve Andy Murray has to look out for.

In Paris Bercy, he marched through a phalanx of four top 20 players before beating Andy Murray. And this is the only ATP result they two of them have so far. Jerzy Janowicz 1; Andy Murray 0. Wimbledon has been full of surprises this year. There is room for more.
