Hold that thought.

"Let's go Heather, let's go!"

The home crowd ramp up the vocal support for Heather Watson during that tense tie-break... but it is to no avail.

A few use the match going into a decider as an excuse to scarper for a Friday night elsewhere. Not many mind.

Plenty of entertainment here for a more than half full Court One crowd which - encouragingly - includes loads of kids.

Seeing instinctive volleys, smiling players and an excited crowd must surely inspire them to pick up racquets.

It seemed as though Demoliner & Martinez Sanchez were a little nervous about playing on Centre Court to begin with but it is beginning to even out here.

Any seemingly-eternal singletons out there, worried you will never be offered a hand in marriage? Then get yourself entered in the Wimbledon mixed doubles.

Still the proposals rain down on Heather Watson and Henri Kontinen. Even Bruno Soares has received one. Poor Elena Vesnina is the only one still waiting.

She's married anyway.

Oh, the tennis? Still on serve in the second set, both pairs missing break points. Watson and Kontinen have only taken one of 11 in this match...

The crowd are enjoying themselves over on Court One.

Not least because Heather Watson and her Finnish playing partner Henri Kontinen, the defending champions, are a set up against second seeds Bruno Soares and Elena Vesnina in their mixed doubles semi-final.

But also because there are a few comedians in the house.

"Will you marry me Heather?!" shouts one fella during a quiet spot between points. Cue laughs from everyone else - including Watson.

"Will you marry me Henri?!" leads to more guffawing moments later. All good fun.

The first Briton into a final at Wimbledon 2017? We think so.

Jordanne Whiley and her Japanese partner Yui Kamiji have done for the Dutch-American of Aniek van Koot and Dana Mathewson, 6-4 6-4, in the women's wheelchair doubles.

Good news on Court One as well. Defending mixed doubles champions Finland's Henri Kontinen and Great Britain's Heather Watson have taken the first set of their semi-final against Bruno Soares and Elena Vesnina, 6-4.

Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid have been taken to a third set by Gustavo Fernandez and Shingo Kunieda in the men's wheelchair doubles.

Cilic still facing the cameras

Marin Cilic might have booked a place in his first Wimbledon final almost three hours ago but his shift isn't over yet.

The Croatian is stood up on the roof of the press centre, giving interviews to the world's media.

As you can see by the anchormen and cameras gathered, he's got a few more interviews to do before sloping off home.

Down below, excited fans gather as they zoom in on their camera phones to snap the man tasked with stopping Roger Federer on Sunday.

Federer - 'I can't believe it'

Roger Federer speaking to BBC Sport: "I feel very privileged to be in another final.

"I've got the pleasure to play on Centre Court another time. I can't believe it's almost true again. I'm happy to have a day off to reflect on what I've done at the tournament."

On being out for six months last year:

"It was a long way back - last year was so difficult. To stay calm and take a decision that we were going to sit out.

"I'm happy I did it because my life continues without tennis. Giving the body a rest from time to time is good."

On facing Marin Cilic in Sunday's final:

"Last time we had a brutal match - I was two sets down. I had to get lucky to win.

"Marin is a great guy. He's a lovely guy. In his first Wimbledon final.

"He crushed me at the US Open a few years ago - I hope he doesn't play that good."

WATCH: Federer reaches a record 11th Wimbledon final

Former Wimbledon champion Roger Federer beats Thomas Berdych to reach a record 11th Wimbledon final.

'Federer is looking great'

Pat Cash

Former Wimbledon champion on BBC Radio 5 live

We haven't seen the end of Federer. He was favourite to win it at the start of the tournament. Berdych could not have played much better than he did.

It's a big ask for Cilic.

#bbctennis

Lee Fergusson: I am running out of superlatives to describe the brilliance of Roger Fererer right now!!

Matt Harding: Not sure I've seen a better tennis player than Federer ever. Unbelievably impressive.

Joseph Burns: Federer skipping the clay season was a masterstroke. He knows where he's strongest & can afford to pick and choose. What a legend

Tim Henman

Former British number one on BBC TV

Another masterclass from Federer but I do think Berdych deserves a lot of credit for a great semi-final.

Federer 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-4) 6-4 Berdych

Tomas Berdych looks absolutely gutted, as you would be after playing like that but still losing.

As far as I could see, he was the first player this tournament to put Federer under real pressure.

But it still wasn't enough.

Match point

Federer 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-4) 5-4 Berdych*

Ooohs and aaaahs from the Centre Court crowd as Berdych nets a tiny drop shot to give Roger a 30-0 lead.

A forehand winner brings up three match points.

Here we go...

'Fed's forehand is now a strength'

Pat Cash

Former Wimbledon champion on BBC Radio 5 live

Federer is fresh and has developed a new forehand. For him to have a shot that wasn't his strength that now is 'a strength' - then how do you handle that?

*Federer 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-4) 5-4 Berdych

Tomas Berdych has still got some fire in his belly. The Czech 11th seed moves to 40-0 with ease.

But the Federer 'A game' reappears. He overpowers Berdych to snatch a point back and then lands a low forehand cross-court winner without even looking. Stop that, you. You're just showing off.

Ice-cool Berdych doesn't care much for the showboating. He bangs down a massive ace to hold.

To continue the boxing metaphor...

Berdych has been on the ropes for two hours, but where is he now?

Is he even still in the ring?

Federer 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-4) 5-3 Berdych*

Federer's well grumpy today. He gets annoyed as the ball runs away from him as he prepares to serve and lets out a grumble.

But he's now channeling his anger in play. He holds to love and will make Berdych serve to stay in the match.
