Andy Murray's former coach Mark Petchey tells the nation to not get over-excited after the Brit makes it through to the Wimbledon final.

Andy Murray's former coach Mark Petchey has warned the nation to not get over-excited after the Brit made it through to the Wimbledon final.

Murray defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in four sets to become the first home player to book his place in the men's singles final in 74 years.

"Obviously when you remember watching Murray play on Centre Court for the first time against David Nalbandian it was unbelievable, the signs were there that this was a guy who had a chance to win a Grand Slam," Petchey told BBC Sport.

"To witness it is such an incredible occasion, but we all need to temper our enthusiasm. He hasn't won it yet and he has a far sterner test in the final that he even had today."

Murray will now face six-time winner Roger Federer on Sunday as he bids to become the first British champion since Fred Perry lifted the famous trophy in 1936.
