What a day, what a day

Hard to beat that for a day of sport on Centre Court - Roger Federer coming from two sets down against Marin Cilic to triumph in five, Andy Murray going two sets up on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, getting dragged back to two apiece and then rediscovering the magic at the death to make it into Friday's semi-finals

Murray will play Tomas Berdych, who beat Lucas Pouille, while Federer will meet Milos Raonic, winner in four sets over Sam Querrey. Rest up, we'll go again for the ladies' semi-finals on Thursday.

Murray's mint on Centre Court

Here's that winning moment again for Andy Murray. Through to the semi-final at Wimbledon (again) and will now face Tomas Berdych in the next round.

More from Andy Murray: "In any of the Slams when you get to the final stages you want to play your best tennis and win. 

"At the beginning you try to work your way through and play good tennis but now you are trying to get through matches and play as well as possible and I am happy to get into the semis.

"It will be a very tough match (against Berdych). He has been to the final here, beaten Djokovic and Federer at Wimbledon and is very very good.

"He has won some tough matches here, a tough match against Vesily, he's played a lot of tennis and I will need to play well."

MrLeggyElad: Great match of tennis. Good five sets. I wouldn't have cared if Tsonga won. Top effort from the Frenchman as always.

Greg: Tsonga. One of tennis' really nice and good guys. If winners were based on that he would be right up there.

Lewis Wright: THIS IS WHY WE LOVE TENNIS. Immense day on centre court yet I'm so relieved that it is over! Bring on the semi-final. 

Murray 7-6 (12-10) 6-1 3-6 4-6 6-1 Tsonga

Andy Murray speaking to BBC TV: "It was a tough match. At the end of the fourth set it was really tough. To lose that set 6-4 was hard but I just tried to use all my energy at the start of the fifth set to get myself pumped up and the crowd and thankfully got the early break and managed to hang onto it. 

"Tsonga is a pretty good player, one of the best grass-court players in the world and he came up with some great shots at big moments. He was returning better and he mixed it up well and credit to him for fighting back into match.

"It is always important to break in the fifth set, there is no tie break so it has to happen and thankfully I got it at the beginning and then to get the second one which takes away a lot of the pressure."

At two sets to love you are not going to beat Andy Murray unless he has a real collapse. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga played some fantastic tennis in the third and fourth sets but in the end Murray's just a fitter man. It was a fantastic match.

Tsonga flays a forehand wide. And another. Two points away. Three hours 53 minutes in. Murray in for a volley, three match points. Ace! Carumba carumba, Andy Murray has found the strength...

Greg Alexander: Wouldn't be the same without a nerve-jangler. First four rounds went too smoothly. Needed a test. He's now had it.

He was not only pumping his fist but screaming at his box. Murray saw Cilic lose from two sets down earlier and thought 'it's not going to happen to me'.

Now then. What's Big Jo got left in the booster rockets? Murray with a brace of mis-hits, but he'll battle to deuce as the big man over-hits what looked a straightforward winner. Murray to the net, Tsonga going cross-court, missing by a few blades of grass. Point for double break. Tsonga... nets! Don't start the car, but start patting your pockets for the keys.

A lot better depth and hitting through the court and he was able to put Tsonga on the back foot.

All good? No, didn't think so. Murray carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders, tugging a lame forehand into the net, 30-40. Slip from Tsonga as the rally develops, and Murray will capitalise - jumps on the spot, roars at Coach Ivan and Wife Kim. Much better point, moving the big man around, choosing the perfect time and approach to dash to the net and seal the deal.

One thing Murray has to keep telling himself is that he is fitter than this guy.

Tsonga was forced to pull out of Roland Garros. How fit can he be?

I think Andy will come back and win. Jo wrestled it out of Andy Murray's hands but I tend to think a guy who hasn't played a lot of tennis because of injuries will struggle in the fifth set.

I worry when Murray starts hitting too many drop shots and missing backhands. For me, that's when his concentration is about to snap.

There's lots of great sport on at the moment. But Nicola Sturgeon, the first Minister of Scotland, knows where her loyalties lie.
