You can watch Today at Wimbledon on BBC Two or if you retreat to the BBC Tennis page.

And here's the order of play for Wednesday:

Centre Court:

Murray v Querrey (13:00 BST)

Raonic v Federer

Court One:

Muller v Cilic (13:00 BST)

Berdych v Djokovic

A speechless semi-finalist

Magdalena Rybarikova
PA

Magdalena Rybarikova, who will now play Garbine Muguruza, speaking to BBC Sport: "I really cannot believe it. I would never believe I could reach the semi-final before this tournament. I am so happy and grateful.

"It was a very difficult time over the last year with my injuries but now everything has paid off. It is incredible, I am speechless.

"I was afraid of how I was going to play here. This is Wimbledon. I was very focussed and here I am.

"Muguruza impressed me a lot today, I am not the favourite again but let's see."

'She handled it so much better'

Tracy Austin

Former Wimbledon mixed doubles champion on BBC TV

Rybarikova had not one, but two surgeries last year and was ranked outside the top 400 as recently as March.

She handled the situation so much better. Stayed calm, composed and Coco got very rattled.

Game, set and match Rybarikova

Rybarikova 6-3 6-3 Vandeweghe

Rybarikova gets a good first serve in.

The second point is more contentious with Vandeweghe arguing over a call with the umpire.

"What are you talking about? I'm in play. You're totally wrong."

Basically, it seems she was arguing over a point that was challenged but was called in. We will no doubt get an explanation from the American later.

Anyway, it's 30-0 which becomes 40-0.

Three match points. The first is taken via another error from her opponent who is too long with her return.

Magdalena Rybarikova - world number 87 - is through her first ever Grand Slam singles semi-final.

Vandeweghe survives...for now

*Rybarikova 6-3 5-3 Vandeweghe

Saved again.

It's the 100th deuce or something.

Now it's advantage Vandeweghe after she forces an error from Rybarikova.

But...no... no buts.... she holds.

The American showed aggression with her shot-making and it paid off.

However, Rybarikova will now serve for the match.

Rybarikova 6-3 5-2 Vandeweghe

Rybarikova is sweating - maybe she isn't that cool after all.

She's 30-0 up and two points from a place in the Grand Slam semis for the first time.

Vanderweghe pulls to points back but then produces an atrocious smash which is...well... very inaccurate.

Match point.

Saved.

Vanderweghe forehand is too good for her opponent... but wait.

Second match point after Vandeweghe finds the net with an easy volley.

Saved again after her brave approach to the net pays off.

Another match point after Rybarikova produces a great forehand down the line...

Rybarikova on the brink

Rybarikova 6-3 5-2 Vandeweghe*

This is so, so easy for Rybarikova.

The Slovak holds to love with American Vandeweghe seemingly having given up. It's so strange - her returns are missing by miles.

Coach Pat Cash is watching - a penny for his thoughts.

Vandeweghe broken

*Rybarikova 6-3 4-2 Vandeweghe

Coco stutter!

Twice the American opens up and goes wide with a forehand - that's 22 unforced errors! In this match, not this game. Clearly.

It should be have been 0-40 but Rybarikova's lob is weak and picked off.

However, Vandeweghe, who must be collecting double faults - do you get vouchers for a certain number? - produces two double faults to gift her opponent the game.

She's broken. In more ways than one.

*Rybarikova 6-3 3-2 Vandeweghe

Slovak Rybarikova is graceful from the back of the court - her groundstrokes kick off the surface and dumbfound her American rival.

Vandeweghe reduces the deficit to 40-30 after her opponent fails to pick up a drop-shot, and then produces a flat angled return that eludes the reach of Vandeweghe.

It's deuce. However, a good challenge by Rybarikova and an error by Vandeweghe sees Rybarikova hold.

That was a tricky game for the Slovak.

Kick off

Rybarikova 6-3 2-2 Vandeweghe*

We are back under way. Rybarikova is serving.

More of the story so far...

OK, a bit more detail.

World numero 25 Coco Vandeweghe - who reached this stage two years ago and reached the Aussie semis this year - had a bit of a mare' in the first set, especially with her serve.

Former Wimbers winner Pat Cash, who coaches the American, looked somewhat perplexed by it all sitting inside Court One.

Magdalena Rybarikova - the current world number 87 - had been playing the match like she was out for a Sunday hit with her next-door neighbour while discussing the pros and cons of cryptocurrency. In other words, she was pretty relaxed but focused.

That helped her ease through her service games.

The second set has been slightly different - they both broke each other and it became a much tighter contest.

There are one or two people creeping back into the main arena.

The story so far...

Rybarikova 6-3 2-2 Vandeweghe

Rybarikova won the first set. It's 2-2 in the second set.

Right, that's enough - they are both here.

Hey Centre Court fans where did you go? These two have travelled a million miles from rain-swept Court One to be here.

'An absolute classic'

Former British number one Jeremy Bates: "One of the best matches I've seen, an absolute classic. The closed roof makes it a cauldron. Everyone was mesmerised.

"Halep just couldn't keep up with her. What a tournament, she has done a great job."

'Both players were incredible'

BBC Radio 5 live

Double Olympic gold medallist Max Whitlock: "That is one of the best sporting events I have seen, both players were incredible.

"It was so close, the atmosphere was so tense and she fought through it."

'Konta was machine like!'

Not even a flicker of emotion from Jo, that's how she can cope with it . I have seen her have some meltdowns when under intense pressure, but she has learnt. She has been done as much work on the mental side of her game as she has technique.

In the third set you saw that. She took her game to another level and there was no breaking through for Simona Halep. You could see her body language shift.

Konta was machine like.

'Jo was the aggressor'

Billie Jean King

Six-time Wimbledon champion on BBC TV

It got shaky off and on but you knew it was going to be a close match. Jo had to be the aggressor.

Sean Foley: What an absolute classic! We will be seeing highlights of that for years to come

John-Paul Wares: Congrats @JoKonta91 that was elite level tennis at its finest. So pleased my girls got to see. You have 2 new fans.

Simon Richardson: What a match! Incredible intensity and brutal hitting. Konta's angles won it in the end. Deserved standing ovation for both.

Johanna Konta on her semi-final opponent, Venus Williams: "I definitely feel age isn't a factor with Venus. She's a tremendous champion and I feel humbled to share a court with her."

We've still got more tennis to come, folks!

Coco Vandeweghe will continue her match against Magdalena Rybarikova very shortly.

Johanna Konta speaking on BBC One: "Right now it is surreal because of how quickly things change in tennis. I'm definitely still digesting things.

"I definitely felt clear on what I was trying to achieve, regardless of if it was going my way. I just stuck to my true self. I knew against Simona she wasn’t going to give me much for free and I had to create my own chances and I took a few of them.

"I felt consistent in my approach and in my general being out there. I continued to trust in myself."

Halep 7-6 (7-2) 6-7 (5-7) 4-6 Konta

Without sounding sycophantic, Konta had a lot of expectation on her shoulders.

Not just the tag of 'Wimbledon favourite' but playing on Centre Court, in front of a crowd expecting big things, and facing a player who knew she was just one win away from the world number one title is a big ask of one player.

To fight back from a set down, to match the intensity and power shown by the wonderful Simona Halep, is some feat.

Bravo.

Andrew Jolly: Nerves of steel. Konta is a special player. She's into the semis.

Stephanie Siu: Wonderful Jo! You've made the nation so happy!

YSL: Not the best way for that point to end.. But what a brilliant match!

'An amazing match'

John McEnroe

Three-time Wimbledon singles champion on BBC TV

That was an amazing quarter-final match. A bizarre last shot, someone did yell out unfortunately and it's too bad it ended that way. Obviously there's a standing ovation for both.

Halep 7-6 (7-2) 6-7 (5-7) 4-6 Konta

Halep waits for Konta and the two leave the court together.

What a brilliant, brilliant performance.

'Well done Jo!'

Konta wins

Leon Smith

Great Britain Davis Cup captain on Radio 5 live

Well done Jo Konta! You thoroughly deserve this. It's a strange ending to the match. All credit to Konta.

Konta

Game, set and match - Konta

Halep 7-6 (7-2) 6-7 (5-7) 4-6 Konta

JO KONTA!

The first British woman to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals since 1978, watched on by the last woman to do so in Virginia Wade.

It was an odd end to proceedings - Halep stopped playing after a cry from the crowd and loosely slashed the ball into the net.

But what a match.

Konta's winning moment

*Halep 7-6 (7-2) 6-7 (5-7) 4-5 Konta

Konta, on the right of the baseline, whips her arm up and the forehand is stunning!

Two match points to Konta!

*Halep 7-6 (7-2) 6-7 (5-7) 4-5 Konta

Konta loops a forehand long before Halep responds in kind to keep it equal.

An almighty rally, both players on the stretch, but it's Konta who gets it to 30-15 with another backhand winner into the corner of the court!

Halep 7-6 (7-2) 6-7 (5-7) 4-5 Konta*

I feel like a bag of nerves just watching. Even Virginia Wade looks tense as she watches on.

And yet these two players look so composed. Heads down. Eyes forward. Not a flicker of emotion as the crowd applauds and cheers.

Here. We. Go.

Halep is going to make Konta wait

A series of lovely speedy serves, followed with a crash down the line, and Halep holds to love.

Konta will serve for the match.

Chris Bradnam

BBC Sport commentator

That's a wonderful message back to Halep. A love hold. Jo's a game away from the semi-final.

She's as cool as a cucumber out there isn't she?

*Halep 7-6 (7-2) 6-7 (5-7) 3-5 Konta

Lovely from Konta, responding to a bit of a shank return from Halep with a dart to the net and a bit of fakery, moving to Halep's right as she slaps the ball to the left.

Big serve, Halep returns into the net - and a forehand winner gets Konta a hold to love! She's a game away from a place in the Wimbledon semi-final!

Kim Clijsters

Former world number one on BBC TV

You can feel Halep's doubt a little bit. When Johanna went up 4-2, the shots were getting a little shorter and her body language is a little bit off.

The rain falls, still the crowd on Johanna Montagne remains. Transfixed.
