Goodnight and farewell

As Mansour Bahrami and Henri Leconte amuse the Centre Court crowd with their clowning doubles antics, we are heading for home.

But in the meantime there are still plenty of live tennis matches taking place - go to the live tab and take your pick from our video selection.

And remember there's Wimbledon 2day starting at 20:00 BST, rounding up all of today's matches.

The live text will rev back into life tomorrow morning to bring you all the build-up and then coverage of the day's action.

See you there.

Tomorrow then.

Andy Murray is first on Centre Court against Vasek Pospisil, followed by Novak Djokovic against Marin Cilic.

Over on Court One, it is Gilles Simon v Roger Federer and then Stan Wawrinka v Richard Gasquet.

Lovely jubbly.

One of my toughest matches - Anderson

Kevin Anderson has gathered the strength to tweet after his crushing defeat by Novak Djokovic. 

One of the toughest matches I've played, congrats to @djokernole. Thank you everyone for the support. @Wimbledon

US singer Ciara was at Centre Court today apparently.

I have no idea who she is.

But that mirrored aviator sunglasses disguise is a big giveaway that she is someone worth getting a snap with and then googling later.

When will these celebrities learn?

More injury problems for Raonic

Milos Raonic missed the French Open after having foot surgery, returned for Wimbledon but is still not fully fit. 

Raonic, beaten in round three at SW19 by Nick Kyrgios, will miss Canada's Davis Cup tie against Belgium next week.

I’m heartbroken that I cannot be fit to fight along side the Canadian Davis Cup team vs Belgium, I will work hard to come back healthy ASAP

So this is your semi-final line-up. Reckon, you can pick a winner out of that little lot?

Yeah, so do I. But Williams' generous scheme of giving away sets means there is a punchers' chance for the other three.

Serena Williams: "It was really fun out there. I was smiling at one point and I saw Victoria smiling as well. We both really enjoyed it. It's been up and down, up and down but somehow I'm still alive. I'm just happy to be here."

Asked about her semi-final opponent Maria Sharapova, she says: "It's been a while but she's been playing really well, she's such a fighter. I look forward to it. I don't have anything to lose, I'm just going in there trying to win a match."

The interviewer mentions the Serena Slam, but Serena wiggles her finger and politely says "no Slam" talk today.

Match summary

Serena says that it the match against Victoria Azarenka was "tremendous fun" and a "great atmosphere". I don't think she would have said the same after her last two matches against sister Venus or home crowd favourite Heather Watson.

"Somehow I am still alive, so we will have to see what is next," she concludes.

Full quotes to come.

"A huge celebration there from Serena. An incredibly high quality match, everyone was up on their feet at the conclusion of a match that was by far the best of the tournament. It's great to see Victoria back playing at this level as it's been a while. Serena is two matches away from another grand slam."

Serena Williams steams on towards her full house of Grand Slams.

But the hug for Victoria Azarenka and standing ovation are fully deserved.

That was a tremendous match and Azarenka brought the best out of Serena.

Break point saved

*Williams 3-6 6-2 5-3 Azarenka

Serena Williams nets a simple forehand for 30-40. Break point for Azarenka.

What does Serena do? She pulls an ace out of the quiver of course.

Deuce.

*Williams 3-6 6-2 5-3 Azarenka

Two aces follow. The second a 113mph rocket onto the line. Her 16th of the match. 30-30. Two points away...

*Williams 3-6 6-2 5-3 Azarenka

Gutsy from Victoria Azarenka. A forehand winner up onto the baseline following a double fault gives her 0-30 and a lifeline...

Azarenka holds

*Williams 3-6 6-2 5-3 Azarenka

Victoria Azarenka keeps herself alive in the match, in the championship with an arcing ace out wide.

Williams to serve for a place in the last four though next.

And she has a set of shiny new balls to do it with.

Deuce on Azarenka serve

Victoria Azarenka is hunched over, fist clenched, teeth gritted with every point she manages to prise from Serena Williams.

A double fault at 40-15 - as she tries to smuggle the second serve past the American - has her back under the pump though.

Another missed first serve.

Serena slugs away a lovely forehand winner down a sliver of court to take us to deuce.

Azarenka to serve to stay in the match...

Williams 3-6 6-2 5-2 Azarenka*

Never mind Azarenka, give me a chance Serena.

Three aces on a row, with barely a bounce of the ball separating them take her flying to 40-0.

Azarenka managed to claw a return back on the fourth point of the game, but that is the only chance to feel fuzz on string for her.

Serena hammers away from midcourt for a hold to love that weighs in at a puny one minute 15 seconds.

Serena Williams is still hunting Victoria Azarenka's runt of second serve, but she has come out of that game empty-handed.

Azarenka has kept hitting out in the rallies, kept Williams moving and kept her side of the scoreboard ticking.

Rob Stileman: "Serena Williams is without doubt the greatest female athlete of my lifetime."

PA

Serena Williams have been rummaging and clunking around the gearbox. There have been a few stalls and back-fires.

But now she has slipped into top transmission slot.

Her game is roaring on all cylinders, whisking that service game from beneath Azarenka to love in just over a minute.

Azarenka holds

*Williams 3-6 6-2 3-1 Azarenka

This match needed that.

Victoria Azarenka hangs on to her serve to stay within a break's reach of Williams.

The Belarussian grips her fist and lets rip with a squeal of delight and determination.

Break point saved by Azarenka

Williams 3-6 6-2 3-0 Azarenka*

This is Serena in cartoon superhero mode.

Zap! The top seed boshes away a backhand down the line. Blammo! A forehand zips away for a winner with Azarenka dragging her feet behind.

30-40 and break point. Saved as Azarenka finds some of that muscle to plonk down a rocket serve.

Not out of the woods yet. Into deuce indeed.

Jana Novotna

Former Wimbledon champion on BBC Radio 5 live

"You get a sense by seeing Azarenka's body language that she is going through the emotions. She looks a touch tired with challenging Serena from back of the court. Something is creeping into her mind."

"Victoria will have to do something very special to turn the momentum around."

Williams 3-6 6-2 3-0 Azarenka*

Serena Williams has just produced one of the shots of the tournament so far.

Victoria Azarenka's attempted pass could not have been better - clearing the tape by a pimple and loaded with top-spin - but Serena gets down low and volleys off her bootlaces with a wrist of iron.

The ball floats over perfectly to leave Azarenka stranded at the back.

Delicious. Forty-love. The game soon follows. Williams on the charge, the last four on the horizon.

Game, set and match Radwanska

*Keys 6-7 (3-7) 6-3 3-6 Radwanska

Brains overcomes brawn. Keys wild on the forehand - two match points Radwanska. The Pole can't secure victory at the first opportunity, but on her second chance she forces Keys onto her heels and beats her stranded opponent with a straightforward forehand. The 2012 Wimbledon finalist is into the last four.

Keys 6-7 (3-7) 6-3 3-5 Radwanska*

Radwanska with a surgeon's touch around the court - a lob sends Keys scrambling and she follows up with a sweetly-struck dropper which brings up two break points. The young American holds firm, thwacking an ill-judged Radwanska lob. But it's a temporary reprieve for Keys, despite Lindsey Davenport bellowing from the sidelines. Radwanska within a game of the semi-finals.

Williams breaks

Victoria Azarenka is at Serena Williams' mercy whenever she misses with her first serve.

The underdog gets off the hook as Williams piles into a return at 15-30 and goes wide.

But it is only a partial reprieve.

Williams arrows away a forehand winner for 30-40 and then lures Azarenka long to move a break up.

It will be difficult to rein her in from here.

Leon Smith

GB Davis Cup captain on BBC Radio 5 live

"So good to watch this match, a privilege to watch. Azarenka was dominating the first set with her serve, perhaps it dipped a bit in the second and Serena get on top of the second serve and dominated play. If Azarenka can lift her serve then she has great chance but Serena looks like she is out to get a win."

Happy days for Venus Williams. Her sister Serena has the momentum now, taking the opening game of the third set to 15 with her ninth ace of the match sealing the final point.

I'm not sure how the older Williams sister would have fared against Victoria Azarenka today.

The Belarusian - currently 24th in the world - will be back up towards the top five very soon on this evidence.

Keys 6-7 (3-7) 6-3 3-4 Radwanska*

John McEnroe

Three-time Wimbledon champion on BBC TV

"No one can accuse Madison Keys of holding back on her shots. We expected a tight one and that's what we're getting."

*Keys 6-7 (3-7) 6-3 3-4 Radwanska

There's no way of knowing which way this match will swing. 30-30 - Keys screws a backhand into the tramlines. The Pole, though, isn't able to inflict that killer blow.

The pair swish and sway between deuce and advantage before Radwanska produces a super winning forehand, and the game reaches its conclusion when Keys goes long. It's still with serve.

"You can feel that the momentum is changing in the match. Looking at Azarenka's face you can see that something is missing, she is thinking.

"We are in for a treat. From the very first point it has been an exciting match, especially after Serena played a subdued match against her sister Venus in the previous round, we now have two players giving their utmost. A treat to be here and enjoying this match."

Game and second set

Serena Williams is back in the room.

Victoria Azarenka won only 33% of points on her second serve in that second set. When you are only landing with 60% of your first serves, that leaves you with a lot of ground to make up.

Deuce on Azarenka serve

Williams 3-6 5-2 Azarenka*

Victoria Azarenka dribbles a volley wide, sticking her tongue out in exasperation as she looks up at 15-30 on the scoreboard. Two big old first serves take her to the brink, but Williams tucks into a second serve like a seafood platter to take us to deuce.

Where is the mojo hiding in this match? Anyone's to win at the moment..
