Wimbledon Quarterfinals: Who Will Make It to the Final Four?

The 29-year-old Murray already made his mark in 2013, becoming the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.

Andy Murray showed the grit of a champion as he battled his way into another Wimbledon semi-final.

The second-seeded Murray absorbed everything he could from the Centre Court faithful, using their screams and cheers to help him hold off Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6 (10), 6-1, 3-6, 4-6, 6-1 and advance to the Wimbledon semifinals for the seventh time.

Earlier in the day, Federer will start the schedule with a match against Marin Cilic, who has reached the quarter-finals for a third successive year.

Murray did not exert much energy in a straight-sets win over Kyrgios, who was brutally honest about his lack of focus, and the world No 2 will not be expecting such a dramatic collapse from Tsonga.

Of six previous five-set matches at Wimbledon, Tsonga had won all of them, but he was on the ropes when Murray broke again to lead 4-0.

Murray led 4-2 in the fourth before Tsonga, winners flowing from his racket, reeled off four games in a row to send the match into a decider.

"I have quite a simple answer for that because, you know, since you are kid and you are brought to the tennis court, you don't really think about anything else".

Tsonga has held serve on grass 95.8% of the time this season, but it's from a small sample and he did play most of those games against Isner, so perhaps his career service hold mark on grass of 91.6% is more likely to be of interest. "He mixed it up well".

The Scot raised his arms to the crowd on Centre Court and pumped his fist as he won a gruelling first set against Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga that lasted more than an hour.

That set went to tiebreak on multiple occasions within the tiebreak, with Murray finally managing to come out on top. Then you also have to be able to play good tennis in the most important moments. If he plays well, I'm not on my game, I can lose that match for sure. I was happy with that.

Victory over Cilic would ensure Federer equals Jimmy Connors' record of 11 Wimbledon semi-final appearances and draws level with Connors on a record 84 wins at Wimbledon. Some classic lobs from Murray combined with Tsonga's hit-and-miss tendency with slicing meant that he lost crucial points, points he could have easily won today. "He has played a lot of tennis here and will be feeling comfortable".

Tsonga fought back, and fans groaned as Murray faltered and stuttered in the topsy-turvy encounter.

Another potential source of bad blood is the fact Berdych was rebuffed by Ivan Lendl, only for his countryman to return to Murray's coaching entourage for this tournament.

"That happened but that's past", said Berdych.

Mrs Patrickson added: "We certainly got our money's worth". I would have preferred to finish differently but Andy deserved.

"Lucas had a great run", said Berdych, whose best Slam showing was a Wimbledon final in 2010, losing to Nadal. Then he come back to Andy.

"There were also couple matches, the one in US Open, which has been a bit unlucky to me".

"I think it's an incredible story, unbelievable what they're doing", he said.
