Blaz Rola thrilled to be facing Andy Murray at Wimbledon

Blaz Rola claims that his motivation is "off the charts" ahead of his Wimbledon meeting with Andy Murray.

Blaz Rola has claimed that his motivation is "off the charts" ahead of his meeting with Andy Murray in the second round of Wimbledon on Wednesday.

The Slovenian, ranked 92nd in the world, admits that he is facing a big test against the defending champion, who he considers to be one of the best players currently playing the game.

"When I saw the draw, when I saw that potentially I could play the second round against Andy, my motivation was off the charts," Rola told reporters.

"We know that he's probably the greatest sportsman here in the country. He's defending the title. He's been in the top four, the 'Big Four', in the past couple years. His record speaks for itself."

Rola only joined the professional tour on a full-time basis in 2013.
