Britain’s fascination with Andy Murray continues. The Scotsman won his semi-final match at Wimbledon on Friday night, beating Poland’s Jerzy Janowicz after just under three hours of play. The audience for the primetime match-up peaked at 13.2M, BBC One said via Twitter. The channel called it the “most watched TV moment of the year so far.” By way of comparison, the finale of ITV‘s Britain’s Got Talent peaked at 13.1M in June and Broadchurch, arguably the biggest new drama of 2013, peaked at 9.27M during its April finale. The average audience for the Murray-Janowicz serve and volley was 9.68M, according to overnight data. Murray is set to play Novak Djokovic in the final tomorrow. Last year’s final, which Murray lost to Roger Federer, had a peak audience on BBC One of 16.9M.
