JAMIE BAKER has backed Andy Murray to prove his Wimbledon sceptics wrong.
The British No.1 has endured a poor build-up to the Championships having crashed out in the first round at Queen's Club as his bid to defend the trophy he won last year faltered at the first hurdle at the hands of French journeyman Nicolas Mahut.
In search of much-needed practice on grass Murray played in the Boodles International Exhibition at Stoke Park last week only to lose both matches to world No.8 Janko Tipsarevic and world No.1 Novak Djokovic.
Murray will open up his annual bid to become the first Brit to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry back in 1936, when he faces a tough task against former world No.3 Nikolay Davydenko tomorrow.
Baker said: "Andy's game is in great nick and he was timing the ball superbly off either wing over the weekend.
"Davydenko has obviously been as high as No.3 in the world, but I think his game will suit Andy on grass.
"Davydenko has never done well at Wimbledon and I don't think that is going to change for him now when he has maybe gone past his peak.
"If you look at Andy over the last three years he has made the semi-finals every time.
"I don't see why he can't repeat that."
