Wimbledon champion Andy Murray says that he is enjoying the pressure at this year's tournament.

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has insisted that he 'enjoys pressure' as the Scot prepares to take on 20th seed Kevin Anderson.

The 27-year-old heads into round four against Anderson on Monday with a 16-match unbeaten streak at Wimbledon.

"Sometimes I've had tough first weeks and gone on to do well and sometimes I've had easy first weeks and had equally good ­tournaments," The Mirror quotes Murray as saying.

"But I enjoy pressure. I like feeling nervous."

Murray is due to meet rising star Grigor Dimitrov if he beats Anderson, followed by top seed Novak Djokovic.
