women's final line-up has been decided. The familiar - Serena Williams - versus the new kid - Garbine Muguruza. But what about the men's? A superb semi-final Friday will decide that for us. Novak Djokovic? Richard Gasquet? Andy Murray? Roger Federer? Two into four just won't go.

Thanks, as always, for joining us. Wimbledon 2Day will sate your tennis appetite at 20:00 BST but, for now, it's goodbye from us. Until tomorrow.

McEnroe for Maria?


John McEnroe

Three-time Wimbledon champion on BBC TV

A caller asks if John McEnroe would ever coach Maria Sharapova, to help her improve her serve....

"I don't think it would work. In fact I'm fairly confident that won't happen."

That's that, then.

Great result for us - Murray

"It's a great result for us. We got off to a bit of a slow start but I think we were helped out with Erlich's injury because he was struggling with his knee," says Jamie Murray.

"John played a lot of great shots. This is our third year together so for a doubles team that's quite a long time. We've stuck through it and getting our reward. We're excited to be here."

Murray & Peers into final

"That was a fabulous performance. It wasn't easy, they lost the first set but got right back into it in the second set. Peers served so well and Murray backed him up with the volleys and crossing at the right time. A superb partnership."

Murray & Peers into final

A healthy crowd on Centre Court and they're applauding in ovation. The camera finds Judy Murray, hiding a salty tear behind her shades perhaps. David Beckham stands to applaud the winning pair off the court. One Murray into the final. Over to you, little bro.

Game, set and match

Murray/Peers 4-6 6-3 6-4 6-2 Erlich*/Petzschner

Murray opens with an ace. Confident. 15-0. Erlich with a forehand that bounces wide of hte tramlines. 30-0. Petzchner's return goes long. 40-0. Peers with the winning volley. Victory!

Murray/Peers* 4-6 6-3 6-4 5-2 Erlich/Petzschner

Erlich struggling, that right knee clearly bothering him, but it doesn't affect him on his serve, blocking out the pain to hold to love. Murray with a chance to serve for the match.

Murray/Peers 4-6 6-3 6-4 5-1 Erlich*/Petzschner

Murray and Peers have never before been in a doubles Grand Slam final. Erlich and Petzschner blooting their groundstrokes. Murray and Peers forming a wall at the net and the final is within touching distance.

Semi-final predictions


Tim Henman

Former British number one on 6-0-6 on BBC Radio 5 Live

"Andy Murray has to be aggressive. Roger Federer doesn't beat himself, he is so offensive, Andy needs to be proactive enough to get Federer on the back foot. A lot will be dictated by the serving. The person who has a good serving day will create the opportunities."

Murray/Peers* 4-6 6-3 6-4 4-1 Erlich/Petzschner

Peers treating the Petzschner second serve as if it's free lunch. Fine play from Murray at the net, too. The pair gather three break points. This match could soon be over. Double fault and Murray can smell the final.

What has Tim Henman to say about Friday's semi-final against Roger Federer and Andy Murray I hear you say?

Roddick on retirement


Andy Roddick

Former world number one on BBC Radio 5 Live

"I don't think there is a plan for most players. The majority have to go and find a job. Some go back to school, a lot of them network or coach.

"I didn't have a plan. I went to bed thinking I was going to play in the US Open, but I woke up and I didn't want to play anymore. I didn't have time to make a real plan. I don't regret my retirement."

Murray/Peers 4-6 6-3 6-4 3-1 Erlich*/Petzschner

John Peers and Jamie Murray

Murray to serve, break in the bag. A tickle of the fingers between Murray and Peers as they ease 40-15 ahead and the Scot comfortably serves out.

Murray/Peers* 4-6 6-3 6-4 2-1 Erlich/Petzschner

Promising for Murray and Peers, claiming the first point, but it's the only sniff they get on Erlich's serve. A hold to 15 for the man with bandage around his knee.

Murray/Peers 4-6 6-3 6-4 2-0 Erlich*/Petzschner

Peers with the balls and he's usually solid. A slam-dunk smash from Murray secures a hold to 15. Break consolidated, crowd stirring.

Murray or Federer? Semi-final predictions


Andy Roddick

Former world number one on BBC Radio 5 Live

"I've heard five or six experts pick Murray. Federer's getting no love and he's playing great. I'm going to back Roger.

"The Roger in my mind never gets beaten."

Roddick, McEnroe and Henman

Murray/Peers break

Murray/Peers* 4-6 6-3 6-4 1-0 Erlich/Petzschner

David Beckham and his mum, Sandra, sticking with this match, the pair have the stomach for a Thursday night fight. Cracking start for Murray and Peers, breaking in the first game and Judy is on her feet, punching the air.

By the way, 6-0-6 has started on BBC Radio 5 live.

Game and third set

Murray/Peers 4-6 6-3 6-4 Erlich*/Petzschner

Philipp Petzschner finds a John Peers' serve too hot to handle, patting tamely back into the gauze.

Jamie Murray and Peers are a set away from Saturday's final. Either one of the next two will do fine. Preferably the first one.


Murray/Peers save three break points

Murray/Peers* 4-6 6-3 5-4 Erlich/Petzschner

Philipp Petzschner absolutely marmalises a return to 0-30, before John Peers ducks out of the way as the ball blazes a trail for his eyebrows and looks back to see it drop inside the baseline.

0-40 and three break-back points.

Murray and Peers clamber their way back to deuce. Phew, but still work to do.

Murray/Peers break

Murray/Peers* 4-6 6-3 5-4 Erlich/Petzschner

Well, it's easy when you play it like that.

An absolute cannon of a two-handed backhand from John Peers gets he and Murray to deuce.

Jamie Murray flings himself across the net to flick away a volley for break point.

And Philipp Petzschner cuffs Peers' return long as he attempts to come in to the net.

Peers to serve for the set next.

Murray/Peers 4-6 6-3 4-4 Erlich/Petzschner*

Jamie Murray's service wobbles have steadied.

He holds for the loss of just one point.

Murray*/Peers 4-6 6-3 3-4 Erlich/Petzschner

This set could be the pivot point of the match. Both teams are guarding serve jealously knowing that a dropped serve now could be fatal.

We have had new balls, but now we have rolled out a fresh set of line judges while the old ones head off to sharpen their eyeballs and tighten their vocal cords.

Murray/Peers 4-6 6-3 3-3 Erlich*/Petzschner

John Peers, service cyborg, rains down another hold to love. The Australian is not the tallest, but has a skiddy, flat delivery that is difficult for the man opposite to pick out.

bbc-coverageBBC coverage


Murray/Peers* 4-6 6-3 2-3 Erlich/Petzschner

Jamie Murray and John Peers

Time to plot a better plan.

Jonathan Erlich and Philipp Petzschner are in a bit of danger at 30-30, but their serve survives unscathed.

Murray/Peers 4-6 6-3 2-2 Erlich/Petzschner*

Jamie Murray strolls to 40-0 but is just a little too clever with a little cross-court volley - it tip-toes along the highwire and drops his side.

It is a mistake that he is almost to regret as he gets bogged down in deuce for a while. But Murray and Peers find their way through.

*Murray/Peers 4-6 6-3 1-2 Erlich/Petzschner

Murray Mound

This was the scene on Henman Hill an hour or so ago. I can't guarantee that it is similarly swimming with people right now, but there are still a fair few sticking around to soak up some late evening rays and the All England vibes.

The tennis is quite relaxing at the moment. A steady stream of service holds.

Murray/Peers 4-6 6-3 1-1 Erlich*/Petzschner

Another solid service hold. A bit of a nothing game that one, forced errors all round, but not by brilliance.

Murray/Peers* 4-6 6-3 Erlich/Petzschner

The first game of the third set goes the way of the German-Israeli duo, but Jonathan Erlich, who got the trainer on to add even more strapping to that dodgy knee at the end of the second set, is struggling.

He is looking very tentative on that joint. A few snake-in-the-grass low ones over the net might test it to destruction.

Game and second set

Murray/Peers 4-6 6-3 Erlich/Petzschner*

Job's a good 'un.

John Peers, the man that you would want serving for the set, does the bizzo.

We are level pegging.

Murray/Peers* 4-6 5-3 Erlich/Petzschner

Brilliant cat-like reflexes from Jonathan Erlich as he bops away a volley on his way to a love service hold.

Actually if cats had reflexes as sharp as that they would spent less time in traffic accidents and more successfully swiping goldfish out of ponds.

It is actually your 35-minute warning. But if you can't think up a question for one of the three wise men in that time, you might want to look for a new sport.

Dan Venn: I admire his doubles play but what is with @jamie_murray's off-centre cap? @andy_murray have a word son.

Murray/Peers 4-6 5-2 Erlich*/Petzschner

Jamie Murray looks like he is heading for a stress-free day at the service office, rattling through to 40-0. But a double fault, a decent mid-court smash from Petzschner and a wafty air-shot attempt to volley from John Peers take us through to deuce.

Steady. Steady.

Murray puffs his cheeks and rediscovers his serving groove to see his team through.

*Murray/Peers 4-6 4-2 Erlich/Petzschner

And another hold to love. This time it is Philipp Petzschner who brings the service noise.

Murray/Peers 4-6 4-1 Erlich/Petzschner*

Two service winners and an ace. It is not just Serena Williams who can hammer down the bombs on Centre Court today. John Peers is doing a fine job every time the balls are thrown to him.

I admire his doubles play but what is with @jamie_murray's off-centre cap? @andy_murray have a word son #bbctennis #Wimbledon

Murray/Peers* 4-6 3-1 Erlich/Petzschner


Jamie Murray is wearing his hat at a jaunty angle. He looks like he is channelling Marky Mark. I don't think that it can be helping him.

He and Peers cannot make any further inroads after working up 15-30.
