ANDY MURRAY took a swipe at the All England Club today as he prepares to take on Juan Carlos The Mosquito Ferrero in the last eight tomorrow. The British No1 hit out over the conditions under the new Centre Court roof after his epic five-set win over No19 seed Sta- nislas Wawrinka last night. Murray needed three minutes short of four hours to see off the Swiss 2-6, 6-3, 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 in a match that finished at 10.38pm withthefansoutsideonMurray Mount in total darkness. The previous latest finish at SW19 came in 2006, when War- winka was also the victim -- los- ing to Mario Ancic at 9.49pm on Court One.

Bythetimetheairconditioning had kicked in half-an-hour later -- keeping the temperature at 24 degrees -- the rain had stopped but the roof had to stay closed throughout Murrays marathon fourth-round win. The Scot complained after- wards his hands felt like he had been in a bath and added: Its very, very heavy and humid with that roof closed. Althoughthe22-year-oldhailed thesupportof aboisterous15,000 crowd,hewasnothappyatbeing told of the change so late in his preparations. We were told we were playing under the roof and then we left to go on the court straight away, he said. The match before us finished and then they said, youre on now. Its tough as a player when yourewarmingup,gettingready forthematchoutsideanditsdry, and then obviously you get told youre playing under the roof. I think the decision should be made before the previous match is finished so they can let you knowinadecentamountof time what conditions theyre going to be playing under. I had never played on grass indoors before, it made a differ- ence. At the end, that was proba- blythenoisiestcrowdIhaveever played in front of. But we were both sweating so much we tried to get towels from the locker room because our hands were drenched. Britains Davis Cup captain John Lloyd agreed that the play- ers needed to know earlier. He said: Andy has got a valid point. If the roof is closed, you havetogivetheplayersthemaxi- mum amount of time to prepare properly. Murray, who insisted he would like to see Wimbledon remain as a day-time event sank to his knees after finally seeing off Wawrinka, who said: Andys playing very well. Hes good. But you shouldnt forget the other players. Roger Federer is still there andIthinkitcouldbeaverynice final.
