Murray made to wait
Andy Murray's clash with Marin Cilic has been forced to a second day due to rain
Andy Murray's fourth-round Wimbledon tussle with Marin Cilic will go into a second day after rain brought an early end to matches on all courts except Centre Court.
British number one Murray, surprisingly scheduled on Court One, was left waiting for almost three hours before learning there would be no resumption of his match against Croatian Cilic on Monday night.
Murray led 7-5 3-1 and by 40-love on serve in the fifth game of the second set, having recovered from a slow start to the contest. He was seen leaving the grounds immediately after the announcement there would be no further play.
There had been speculation Murray and Cilic would move to continue under the closed roof on Centre, however Novak Djokovic's win against Victor Troicki proved to be the last action of the day.
The forecast late-afternoon rain arrived at Wimbledon shortly before 5pm.
There had been morning fears that no play would be possible at all apart from on Centre Court, with poor weather predicted for most of the day, one of the busiest of the Championships on which all the fourth-round singles matches were scheduled to be played.

I always supported Tim Henman throughout his career,and thought tennis in this country (UK)
trancended the home countries.
I have seen so many immature and inane anti Andy Murray comments on the internet I despair!
I have tried reasoning with the Little Englanders but have now decided its all in vain.
Come on Andy! You may not win but Scotland is proud of having a player that at least gives us a run for our money.
PS i will continue to support ALL British players.
Thank you & good night.
HOW MANY MORE TIMES does this need to be posted
Andy DOES NOT hate, and NEVER HAS hated the english.
If you want the truth about what Andy Murray said about England go to YOU TUBE and watch the clip as detailed below. Straight from the mouth of his close friend Tim Henman, who was there when the original comments were made.....This myth should be put to bed once and for all
"Andy Murray anti-English myth debunked by Tim Henman"
Mind you I am sure that the bigoted "little englanders" and Murray haters STILL won't believe it.
All you footie fans have nothing to brag about now so they attack the Scots and pretend they know something about tennis. Pathetic cries against a joke with Henman Years ago which they like to bring up again and again. You just need to grow up. Pity you don't concentrate on your heroes failings. Fornicating and cheating, falling over to get penalties etc etc. The game has become a joke in England.
I can do the same knowing nothing about football and predict that England will never win a world cup again as they are more interested in making big money and in-fighting with each other. That would be silly as they may well do despite my prediction. Just get off the site and worry about your own sport.
Am I right in thinking people like Dean Leadbetter & Michael Shadbolt are incredibly fragile regards their national identity?
Come on lads grow up. Dont you have anything worthwhile in your lives?
He may be Scottish but its the only thing you little Englanders have got to cling on to now,except all the great Afro carribean runners in team GB! LOL!
poor light and rain is problem for these guys .
But hope the match CAN be played SOON GOOD ---LUCK ANDY --

@ ber gammon , you need to see someone or get professional help, maybe it's that you live a very lonely life and think anyone should't have an opinion, a typical scot at the least!
You want independence and the sooner the better, i wish they could fukc you all off back over the border and that your so called backward country pays for itself and doesnt scrounge more millions from the english taxpayer!
Maybe it's you failure to qualify for any competetion, oh you did once in the world cup and the team got sent home in disgrace when most failed the drugs tests run by fifa................. you are so full of BS it's unreal. now go and crawl under the rock you whence came!
Murray is scottish , he isn't good enough to be called british and he's a loser as you will see in the semi finals. and you just proved you know f all about ANYTHING OUTSIDE THE GIRLS GAME OF TENNIS, IT DOESNT COMPARE TO THE FITNESS OF A FOOTBALLER............TRY GETTING A MAN DEAR, IT MAY JUST PUT A SMILE ON THAT MISERABLE UGLY FACE YOU HAVE
