Why was Gasquet changing the strapping in his racquet during every break towards the end? "I'm sweating a lot but also maybe it's a bit of superstition.

And what does he think about facing Novak Djokovic: "It will be tough but I'm happy with how I've played today and I'll try to play my best again against the best player in the world."

It was a great battle - Gasquet

More from Gasquet: "It was tough and I made some mistakes. He had big confidence after Paris and I had to fight. I really wanted to win. It's a great feeling as it's a big match.

"It came down to mental strength. I was aggressive and it was a great battle."

"I wanted to win," says Gasquet after his victory, which is not an uncommon trait in elite sportspeople. "It was tough for me," he adds while the sweat falls from his nose like a leaky tap.

"It was a well-deserved result for Gasquet. He had plenty of opportunities to fold but he was rock solid in the fifth.

"It was a rough start for Stan, he pulled himself together and looked the favourite in set five but a couple of shots were his undoing."

Gasquet through to semi-finals

Wawrinka 4-6 6-4 6-4 4-6 9-11 Gasquet*

Eight years after his first and only Wimbledon semi-final, Richard Gasquet is through to his second, knocking out the fourth seed and the reigning French Open champion. The Frenchman happily acquiescing to fans' autograph requests.

Game, set and match Gasquet

One break point slips through the fingers. Gasquet looks to the skies in search of inspiration. Wawrinka steps forwards and can take his time to pat a volley beyond his opponent. Two match points saved. What about the third, though, Stan? Backhand long! Gasquet's knees buckle underneath him and he falls to the floor.

Wawrinka 4-6 6-4 6-4 4-6 9-10 Gasquet*

Wawrinka has beaten Novak Djokovic in many a five-set marathons so Gasquet should not hinder his path to the last four. Or will he? The Swiss, breathing deeply in search for calm, slips behind and presents Gasquet with three match points as a backhand drifts long. Three match points! Gasquet! Richard Gasquet!

Gasquet weathers the storm, though not many thought he would. From advantage he pounds from the baseline before overpowering Wawrinka with a forehand.

One man will falter, he will stutter close to the finishing line. The bookies would put their money on Gasquet, he of no Grand Slams and just the two major semi-finals.

The Frenchman with a tired backhand beyond the baseline. 30-30. Could this be it? Wawrinka with a stonking backhand passer. He raises the single digit. Break point.

But Gasquet conjures a boomer to the wings, Wawrinka netting the return. To deuce. We'll see you at 19:51 ish.

It was back in 1815 that we first started updating the scores on this match. Who could have guessed that, 200 years later, they'd be still playing the deciding set, thrilling with wordly backhands and delightful net play. The umpire requests calm, but that's like trying to contain lighting in a bottle. Gasquet shanks a return - a hold to love for Wawrinka.

*Wawrinka 4-6 6-4 6-4 4-6 8-9 Gasquet

It's getting nasty out there. Wawrinka with a body blow of a forehand, catching Gasquet on the side of the ribs. The Swiss raises his arm to apologise, then chuckles like a Bond villain. (He doesn't chuckle. Or stroke a white cat.) The Swiss still trailing, though, and fails to make up the arrears, botching backhands to present Gasquet with a simple hold.

A Mexican Wave is started on Court One. The spectators giddy on a belly full of tennis. But, please, there's only so much entertainment a person can take. Stop it now or we will self combust. Wawrinka the assassin, shooting with accuracy when under intense pressure. A serve and volley to wrap up a hold to love.

"How much longer can Gasquet keep sneaking ahead and how much longer can Wawrinka keep sneaking it back?

*Wawrinka 4-6 6-4 6-4 4-6 7-8 Gasquet

A shot of intent, a rasping ace down the middle. A sharp intake of breath from the impressed spectators. But from the sublime to the silly - a double fault, his fourth of the match. 15-15. The Frenchman upping the ante on his first serve, which helps him skip merrily ahead as if he were dancing through a meadow hand-in-hand with his lover.

"The good news is we still have at least another hour and a half of light, so we should get this game finished tonight."

Three hours have now gone by since this match started. We expected a simple, fuss-free Wawrinka victory but Gasquet has other ideas. This match will end. But who knows when. The rallies are long, the standard high. Gasquet sticking to the baseline, which doesn't bring any reward. Wawrinka continuing to rattle off aces. A hold to 15.

We've reached the stage where it's best to start watching through the lattice of our fingers. Wawrinka wants to challenge a Gasquet forehand - which was out - but the Swiss played it and left it too late. The Swiss throws daggers with his eyes towards the umpire. In the meantime, Gasquet romps to 40-0, ending with a magical crosscourt backhand winner.

These two must be unaware that a tube strike started in London about an hour ago, although Court One's patrons don't seem too concerned about potential travel woes. The Swiss keeping the points short and sweet, rattling them off in quick succession thanks to a first serve which is as precise as his country's clocks. Hold to love.

There are no superlatives to describe the Wawrinka backhand when it's at its piercing best. Picture-perfect, pitch-perfect winner for a 0-30 lead. There's life in Gasquet, though, a smash followed by a irretrievable volley. 30-30. How much more of this can we take? Stan, Stan, Stan... backhand slapped into the net, then backhand into the tramlines. Wawrinka pointing to his head. The demons are playing up.

Jonathan Slatter: Genuinely screaming at home watching this match. Incredible tennis!

Bonnie Beep: One-handed backhands should be made mandatory. So beautiful.

Of the two, Wawrinka is the man who is more accustomed to five-set thrillers in crunch stages of Grand Slams.

The fourth seed punches the air after taking a delightful opening point, he's beginning to feel at home on this stage again. Oh. Scrap that. Wawrinka botches a simple backhand volley. 30-15.

But Gasquet allows him to breathe easier, backhand drifting long. 40-15 - before Wawrinka holds to 30 thanks to a delicate volley at the tape. We're level. We're excited.

Wawrinka breaks back

*Wawrinka 4-6 6-4 6-4 4-6 4-5 Gasquet

Where's that backhand when you need it? Wawrinka remaining patient, pinning Gasquet back, bullying the Frenchman and Gasquet loops a backhand down the tramlines. Gasquet was two points from victory, but its all ifs, buts and maybes.

Break point Wawrinka

*Wawrinka 4-6 6-4 6-4 4-6 3-5 Gasquet

Gasquet hasn't progressed to a Wimbledon semi-final since 2007. No-one thought he would in 2015. They sniffed and snorted at the thought. He's not there yet, however, dragging a backhand wide for 30-30... anxiety grips players and spectators. Beautiful at the net, to and fro... and Gasquet misses with a volley! Break back point Wawrinka.

Gasquet has moved really well throughout this match.

"If Wawrinka's camp aren't having palpitations right now, they're pretty cool."

Wawrinka broken

Wawrinka talking to himself now, which is never a good sign, but super-duper first serves erase two break points. But Gasquet still has one left. The Frenchman's eyes widen when he realises he can reach a Wawrinka forehand - and the French Open champion is broken with a crisp forehand winner down the line. Blimey. Gasquet to serve for the match. Yes, you read it right.

Three break points Gasquet

Wawrinka 4-6 6-4 6-4 4-6 3-4 Gasquet*

Gasquet pacing behind the baseline, trying to keep calm, trying to stop the blood pumping, but all he does is make himself look like Norman Wisdom. No laughing matter for Wawrinka, though, let's the opening two points slip - and fails to control a volley at the net. Three break points Gasquet.

Backhand to backhand, 15 shots, 16 shots... decibels rising on Court One... the pair setting new standards... Wawrinka to the net and he chokes. It's the 29-year-old Gasquet who pulls through in this game. It's almost too tense to watch.

"At this point you can throw the stats out the window. It's about nerve, self-belief and a bit of luck. It's about believing in your shots and actually making them."

Wawrinka 4-6 6-4 6-4 4-6 3-3 Gasquet*

Gasquet changing his grip during every changeover. How he manages to swirl with precision at such speed no-one knows. The crowd energised by what they're seeing, a magnificent two-hour plus spectacle. Wawrinka's serve so solid in this game that Gasquet spends most of his time muttering to himself.

Gasquet holds with a little more ease. The Frenchman in total control from the baseline before dashing forward to produce a volley sweeter than candyfloss. Wawrinka rash on the forehand, which allows his opponent to hold to 15.

Novak Djokovic on BBC after reaching the semi-finals: "I didn't know how my body was going to feel but I was hoping I would play well, which I have done.

"I try not to take it for granted. The top players are expected to reach the final stages but you have to earn it.

"Both Gasquet and Wawrinka have been there. Stan loves playing on the big stage, Gasquet loves playing on grass and is one of the most talented players we have on grass."
