WIMBLEDON, England – On a start-and-stop day at Wimbledon, Andy Murray and Florian Mayer found enough time between rain showers to wrap up their suspended matches and reach the quarterfinals.
Murray advanced to the last eight for the fifth straight year by beating the 16th-seeded Marin Cilic 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 Tuesday while Mayer ousted Richard Gasquet of France 6-3, 6-1, 3-6, 6-2.
Rain had prevented five of the men's fourth-round matches from being completed Monday. The weather continued to cause headaches as the start of play was delayed about 30 minutes because of light showers. When matches started, they were quickly halted again for another rain delay of about an hour.
The women's quarterfinals are scheduled for later in the day.
