Andy Murray has ascended to such faceoff heights for No. 1 and unbeaten Salisbury University that some have suggested the reigning Division III Player of the Year has a sixth sense.

"He definitely has some innate ability or special talent to sense when that whistle is coming," said senior teammate and fellow midfielder Scott Simmons.

But with the way he played at the French Open, making the finals, Federer stamped himself as the man most likely to win Wimbledon.

PARIS — Rafael Nadal found his best clay game exactly on schedule Wednesday, and the top seed notched his third straight win against the only man ever to defeat him at the French Open. Nadal, a five-time French champion and the world's No.1 player, whose ranking is under threat from Novak Djokovic, hammered fifth seed Robin Soderling 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (3) to reach a semifinal against Andy Murray.

"It is difficult to compare the moments of tennis 15 years ago because the game changes," Nadal said.
