Murray talks Britain off the ledge

Native hope pulls off big comeback; Del Potro recovers from bad knee
Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina grimaced his way through a hyperextended knee and through his Wimbledon quarterfinal match against David Ferrer of Spain on Wednesday. Del Potro, who still hasn’t lost a set at this year’s major at the All England Club, crumpled to the ground on just the fifth point but shook off the injury for a 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (5) victory over Ferrer.
Andy Murray of Britain completed his seventh career comeback from two sets down Wednesday to top Fernando Verdasco, 4-6, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-5 in the Wimbledon quarterfinals. “Made some bad mistakes, poor choices on the court,” Murray said. “And then, I turned it around really well after that.”
