Andy Murray is expecting a tight fourth round match against Mikhail Youzhny on Wimbledon's Centre Court on Monday.

Murray breezed into the last 16 with a routine 6-2 6-4 7-5 victory against Tommy Robredo on Friday evening and has had the whole weekend to prepare for his clash against the Russian, who was as high in the world rankings as eight in 2008.

Number two seed Murray is expected to ease through to Sunday's final now that Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are no longer in his half of the draw, but the Scot insists it will be far from straightforward.

"I think there's a lot more pressure on me now with them being out," he said. "I mean, I don't read the papers, but there are papers in the locker room, so you see some of the headlines and stuff. It's not that helpful.

"But you need to be professional enough to not let that stuff bother you and just concentrate on each match."

Youzhny has a very good grass-court pedigree and is in the last 16 at Wimbledon for the eighth time in his career. He made it through to the quarter-finals last year and was beaten in the Gerry Webber Open final by Federer at Halle last month.

"He's a very good grass-court player," added Murray. "He was in the final in Halle and had a very tight match with Roger there. He's been in the quarters here, he's been in the second week numerous times, he likes the courts. He's a very talented guy."

Murray is attempting to become the first British man since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the Wimbledon title and has won 14 successive matches on grass, having clinched the gold medal at the London 2012 Olympics and secured a third Aegon Championships title at Queen's.
