Andy Murray advanced to the Semi-Final at Roland Garros today with a victory over Gael Monfils, 6-4, 6-1, 4-6, 1-6, 6-0. The crowd was entirely behind Monfils as it is the French Open and he is from France. Murray knows the feeling - last year he became the first Briton to win Wimbledon in about a bajillion years - but showed no mercy in the final set after Monfils won the third and fourth set.
He was very pumped about it.
Here is match point, and Murray's reaction:
