    So, a good win for Andy Murray. He will next face either American John Isner or Serbia's Viktor Troicki. You can watch those two duke it out by continuing to follow this stream. Goodbye.

  2. Post update

    Piers Newbery

    BBC Sport at Queen's

    "After two clinical sets from Muller that goes down as a very good win for Murray, and ideal preparation for the weeks ahead. It was interesting to see his change in fortunes arise in the tie-break thanks to markedly improved footwork and an eagerness to step in and attack returns, both hallmarks of coach Jonas Bjorkman's game.

    "If he is going to win a fourth Queens Club title this weekend, there is every chance Murray will need to see off another one or two big servers."

  3. Player reaction

    Andy Murray on BBC Two: "I hit a good passing shot at 1-0 in the tie-break, but those don't always go in so that was a bit lucky. I started to read the serve a bit better at the end of the tie-break and that was when the match changed.

    "It's always tough when you're behind and I wasn't getting many changes at the end, but at the end I started to return better and relaxed a bit more, and I played some good tennis. Hopefully I can take that form into the semi-finals.

    "It will be a tricky match whoever I face. I'm in a good place, physically I feel good."

  4. Game, set and match

    Muller 6-2 6-7 3-6 Murray

    Murray steers a passing shot that Muller can only get the frame of his racket on. A big serve is flopped into the net, before a magnificent point at 30-15 - a superb drop shot from Murray is somehow chased down by Muller and dinked diagonally back over the tape, but Murray is ready and hits a forehand into the open court to bring up two match points. Murray takes it at the first time of asking with a big serve that Muller can't get back, and Murray is through to the semi-finals of Queen's.

    *Muller 6-2 6-7 4-5 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    Murray is hurling himself after every ball here - he almost ends up running into the stands in his fruitless pursuit of a Muller volley. But from 30-0 up, the Luxembourger hits a couple of ropey volleys to subside to 30-40 and match point. He's not giving up though - two aces drag him out of the mire and another big serve seals a teak-tough hold. Murray will have to serve it out.

  6. Post update

    Muller 6-2 6-7 3-5 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    No messing from Murray - he belts a couple of forehands into the corner to move one game away from victory.

  7. Post update

    Muller 6-2 6-7 3-4 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    Signature Murray - a gorgeous whipped lob off one foot sails in a perfect aesthetic arc over Muller's head and plops delightfully in the corner. But Muller isn't giving this one up without a fight - some big serves and heavy forehands keep him in the hunt.

  8. Post update

    *Muller 6-2 6-7 2-4 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    A nice cat-and-mouse rally on the first point ends with a frantically back-pedalling Muller firing a Murray lob into the tramlines. He can't get into the Murray service games at the moment - is there another twist left in this match now?

  9. Post update

    Muller 6-2 6-7 2-3 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    He's still not happy, Andy Murray - a couple of missed chances on the Muller serve get him screaming at himself again. Muller has slightly recovered his composure here and a nice pick-up closes out the game to keep him within touching distance.

    Andy Murray reacts
  10. Post update

    *Muller 6-2 6-7 1-3 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    Muller was picking off volleys like a chameleon catching flies earlier, but his golden touch at the net has deserted him - he can't manage to scoop the ball off his shoelaces, and that's all the encouragement Murray needs, as he closes out another comfortable hold.

  11. Post update

    Piers Newbery

    BBC Sport at Queen's

    "As the sun dips down towards the back of the stand, Murray finally gets the upper hand. Spurred on by the vocal presence of coach Jonas Bjorkman and trainer Matt Little on the sidelines, the Briton is suddenly bouncing around and threatening the formerly invulnerable Muller serve.

    "And if he can see this out, it will leave potential semi-final opponents John Isner and Viktor Troicki to come out and try to get the job done before darkness falls. Advantage Murray."

  12. Post update

    Muller 6-2 6-7 1-2 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    This hasn't been the greatest performance from Murray, but it has showcased some of the virtues which make him such a formidable champion. He clung to Muller like a limpet and now he is slowly sucking the self-belief out of his opponent. Nothing illustrates that better than when Muller, who hasn't missed a volley all afternoon, suddenly errs at the net, prodding a limp push long to bring up two break points.

    Muller saves them with big first serves, and then when recovers a third break point with another howitzer delivery. The crowd are being treated to the full repertoire of Murray's interior monologue, and with a loud 'Noo!' from the Scot, a relived Muller closes out the game.

    Andy Murray
  13. Post update

    *Muller 6-2 6-7 0-2 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    The psychological momentum in this match has shifted decisively and Muller has to be careful he doesn't get swept away on the tidal wave here. A wide approach and a faltering return from Muller give Murray a simple hold.

    John Lloyd

    Former British number one on BBC Two

    "Murray is back in business. He's looking absolutely brilliant right now and has gone up another gear."

  15. Murray breaks

    Muller 6-2 6-7 0-1 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    So, on we go - can Muller dig deep and get over the disappointment of losing that set? It's Murray who has the spring in his step now. Muller hooks a forehand into the tramlines to bring up 15-30, and then Murray stings a return which Muller can't shovel back from the baseline. Two break points, and Murray takes the second when he batters a second serve back past the forlorn Muller. On Easy Street now?

  16. Opportunity knocks

    Rafael Nadal

    The draw has rather opened up for these two players after a week that has proved just how easily the big names can be upset on grass.

    Rafael Nadal was first through the exit door, beaten by Alexandr Dolgopolov, followed by Stanislas Wawrinka, who lost to Kevin Anderson.

    Muller himself put away last year's champion Grigor Dimitrov, and US Open winner Marin Cilic was ousted by Viktor Troicki.

    In fact, apart from Murray, only one other of the eight seeds that started the tournament remains: seventh seed Gilles Simon, who beat third seed Milos Raonic earlier today.

  17. Game and second set

    *Muller 6-2 6-7 (2-7) Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    A hopeless lob from Muller allows Murray to dink the ball into the empty court and bring up four set points. He takes the first when Muller nets a backhand, and the British number one is right back in this match!

    Murray celebrates
  18. Post update

    Muller 6-2 6-6 (2-5) Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    Murray is fractionally wide of the sideline with a stretching return, but Muller then gets an attempted smash horribly wrong to hand the initiative back to the Scot.

  19. Post update

    *Muller 6-2 6-6 (1-4) Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    Muller wallops a forehand millimetres long - upheld on review, much to the delight of the well-refreshed Queen's crowd. But Muller gets one of the mini-breaks back with a good volley.

  20. Post update

    Muller 6-2 6-6 (0-3) Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    A brilliant pass from Murray earns him a mini-break, and then he shows great instincts to hunt down a volley. Murray in charge.

  21. Post update

    *Muller 6-2 6-6 (0-1) Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    A nicely constructed point gets Murray's nose in front.

  22. Post update

    John Lloyd

    Former British number one on BBC Two

    "Murray has been muttering a lot but it hasn't affected him, like it does on some occasions. It's almost frustration but then he seems to get straight back to business."

  23. Post update

    Muller 6-2 6-6 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    The apparently nerveless Muller hits the chalk with another thunderbolt, and then cramps Murray up with a clever body-serve. "Shot, mate," Murray congratulates himself sarcastically. But from 40-0, Murray comes charging back - a good return and an unreturnable passing shot get Murray to 40-30. But Muller's serve comes up trumps yet again, and we're going to a tie-break.

  24. Post update

    John Lloyd

    Former British number one on BBC Two

    "Muller has a big serve but his groundstrokes have also been awesome and keeping Murray off balance constantly."

  25. Post update

    *Muller 6-2 5-6 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    The moody mutterings of Murray have begun in earnest by the way - he spent much of the last game berating himself for his lack of movement. But he soothes his teenage angst with another short and sweet service game. Muller will have to serve to stay in it again.

  26. Post update

    Muller 6-2 5-5 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    A big test of Muller now, as he serves to stay in the second set. There's a brief flicker of hope for Murray as a vicious return earns him 15-15, but Muller digs out yet another volley and then batters down a big ace to stay on track.

  27. Post update

    *Muller 6-2 4-5 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    We're at this business end of the second set now - any failure to hold serve here could be fatal. Murray's been down this stretch many times before though, and he keeps his nerve with an emphatic hold.

    Andy Murray holds
  28. Post update

    Muller 6-2 4-4 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    Muller just hasn't blinked at the net - a vicious top-spin return from Murray that dips wickedly below the tape is coolly dispatched into the corner by the Luxembourger. He got that one up and down, as they say of free-kick takers. Another fine volley by Muller - this time punched on the forehand side - and a big serve draw him level again.

  29. Post update

    *Muller 6-2 3-4 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    Murray serves

    Murray brings the Queen's Club patrons to their feet - OK, prompts a polite ripple of applause - with a magnificent whipped forehand that wrong-foots Muller. A hold to love continues Murray's smooth progress on serve in this second set.

  30. Post update

    Muller 6-2 3-3 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    From 40-0, Murray suddenly makes life difficult for the previously assured Muller at the net - a stinging return and a clever slice shot get the Scot to 40-30, but Muller closes out the game with a big serve.

  31. Post update

    *Muller 6-2 2-3 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    Muller isn't even attempting to chase down the Murray drop-shots any more - as soon as he sees the Scot draw back his racket to unleash a wicked back-spinner, he simply tucks his racket back under his arm with an air of resignation and walks back to receive the next serve. Murray is beginning to find his groove on serve - a big ace keeps him on track on this second set.

  32. Post update

    Muller 6-2 2-2 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    I'm not the sure the balding Muller really has quite enough hair to pull off the headband - he's sporting a considerable yardage of cloth for a man with only a few strands on top. Murray gives himself a chance with a lovely return but he can't make the passing shot for 0-30, and Muller compounds his frustration with yet more solid work at the net - just when Murray thinks he's got him with a swooping pass down the line, Muller is there to dead-bat the ball back into the open court.

    Andy Murray
  33. Post update

    Piers Newbery

    BBC Sport at Queen's

    "There is a low hum of astonishment around Centre Court after that clinical set from Muller, whose swinging serve and wicked slice left Murray nowhere to go. The recent return of Jose Mourinho to courtside might inspire a more effective effort from Murray, who has won 32 in a row against left-handers other than Rafael Nadal."

  34. Tsonga out of Nottingham

    Tsonga

    French Open semi-finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has had to pull out of next week's Nottingham ATP World Tour event because of an abdominal strain.

    The world number 12 's injury means he will have played no grass-court tennis prior to Wimbledon.

    Spain's Feliciano Lopez and British number two James Ward have been confirmed for the Nottingham event, which begins on Monday.

  35. Post update

    *Muller 6-2 1-2 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    Most parts of the Murray machinery look like they could use a little oiling at the moment, but one bit that is in perfect working order is the drop-shot - Murray nails another one to leave Muller floundering. Some good first serves secure the game.

  36. Post update

    Muller 6-2 1-1 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    Muller falters with a volley and Murray paints the line with a terrific passing shot - can that energise him? Muller does his best to dispel the positive vibes with another good volley and a too-hot-to-handle serve. An ace down the T has Murray smashing the ball in frustration, and a wide pass from Murray sees him to the hold.

    Andy Murray
  37. Post update

    *Muller 6-2 0-1 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    Murray hasn't been at his best so far - how can he respond to that early setback? The early signs are encouraging - the Scot suddenly finds the ascendancy in those long baseline rallies to earn a solid hold to 15.

  38. Post update

    John Lloyd

    Former British number one on BBC Two

    "Credit to Muller. Murray hasn't played great but he hasn't been allowed to. The right thing to think is hold serve, keep the pressure on and at some point Muller's standards will slip. When you play someone who is on a hot streak, you mustn't worry about it because your time will come."

  39. Simple pleasures

    Life is all about the little things. Sleeping in on a rainy day. Feeling the wind in your hair. Or, if you're Andy Murray, having a fruit yoghurt in front of Mock the Week.

    "They're lactose free but that's not why I eat them, I just love the taste," says Murray in his latest BBC Sport column, doing a passable impression of a spokesman for a fruit yoghurt company.

    He adds: "The new series of Mock the Week is always on around this time of year and I enjoy watching that."

    Murray also gives the lowdown on his support team for Wimbledon, including new coach Jonas Bjorkman.

  40. Game and first set

    Muller 6-2 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    The lob isn't going to win you many points against Muller: at 6'4", the Luxembourger just stretches up a lazy arm like a bear foraging in a fruit tree and bats away the smash. The nerveless Muller gobbles up a midcourt return from Murray, and another big leftie serve completes the job. Super set from Muller, and the shock is on.

    Muller serves
  41. Post update

    *Muller 5-3 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    So, Murray unexpectedly serving to stay in the first set after 28 minutes. The Scot shows the sure instincts of a bloodhound to sniff out a floaty Muller backhand and charges into the net to scythe away the volley. Murray holds to love to pile some psychological pressure on Muller.

  42. Karlovic sets serving record

    Ivo Karlovic

    Croatia's Ivo Karlovic hit a record 45 aces en route to beating third seed Tomas Berdych and reach the Gerry Weber Open semi-finals at Halle.

    The world number 27 improved the record for a three-set ATP tour match by one ace, winning 7-5 6-7 (6-8) 6-3.

    "Berdych returns quite well really," said the 36-year-old. "That's why lots of aces are so important.

    "I didn't really know how many aces I'd done, but when I heard it was 45 I knew that's a record. Hitting aces helps a lot, you can avoid the volleys. I was surprised when I was told how many I hit."

    George Sim: Emmmmmm excuse me Andy Murray but this is not how we wrote the script for this match, can you please sort it??..

    Alistair Elias: With that big leftie serve, wonder why Gilles Müller hasn't been ranked higher during his career.

  44. Post update

    Muller 5-2 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    A superb cross-court backhand gives Murray a glimmer at 15-15, but a couple of clinical volleys from Muller, who is showing a scalpel-sharp touch at the net, help him to another comfortable hold. It's been a hugely impressive performance from the Luxembourger so far.

    Andy Murray
  45. Post update

    *Muller 4-2 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    Muller's heavy forehand is proving a more of a match for Murray in the long baseline rallies than might have been expected, and a wild forehand from Murray brings up 30-30. A very sharp volley gives Murray no chance and suddenly Muller has a break point for 5-1. A good kicker on the second serve gets Murray out of trouble. A gossamer drop-shot from the Scot leaves Muller standing, and an ace keeps Murray in the first set.

  46. Tough return for Robson

    Some news on the former British women's number one.

    Laura Robson has drawn the top seed, and world number 41, Daria Gavrilova in the first round of the Eastbourne qualifying competition.

    The former British number one has not played a competitive match since last year's Australian Open.

  47. Post update

    Muller 4-1 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    Now then, can the big server close out the set with three straightforward holds? Muller is not the sort of player you want to be behind against. The world number 48 shows a few signs of nerves with an immediate double fault. Twitchy. A streaky forehand into the tramlines then brings up 15-30. Murray fires a vicious, dipping return at Muller's toes and passes him easily to bring up two break points.

    Muller saves the first with a nice serve-volley point, and another wide, swinging delivery from the Luxembourg leftie drags him back to deuce. Murray then misses fractionally with a passing shot, and Muller's first ace of the match seals a gutsy hold.

  48. Muller breaks

    *Muller 3-1 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    Muller takes a few chances on the groundstrokes and it works for him - a very solid backhand volley concludes a well-constructed point to give him 0-30. But a good serve and a lovely pick-up forehand drag Murray back to parity.

    Muller isn't going quietly in these long rallies though, and he works Murray around the court beautifully to bring up his first break point. And he takes it when Murray can't get a heavy backhand back over the net! What a start for Muller.

    Andy Murray stretches
  49. Muller's missiles

    Gilles Muller serves

    Muller's extremely potent serve is the main weapon in the Luxembourger's locker.

    He hit an astonishing 37 aces in his first-round match against Youzhny, and then wanged down another 19 against Dimitrov.

    Murray, by comparison, has hit just 16 in his two matches put together so far.

  50. Post update

    Muller 2-1 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    Our first look at the Murray drop shot, a weapon he used quite frequently against Verdasco, as he knifes a cheeky back-spinner just over the net. No chance for Muller. A poor volley from the Luxembourger puts Murray 15-30 up, but that's as much of a sniff as Murray gets - three big serves slam the door in his face.

  51. Post update

    *Muller 1-1 Murray (* denotes next to serve)

    Two can play at that game, says Murray. A lucky bounce of the whitewash gives him his first ace as Muller swishes at fresh air, and then there's a more convincing ace right down the T. Two games in, and we're yet to see a point against serve.

  52. Post update

    Andrew Castle

    BBC tennis commentator

    "Perhaps rather than trying to find a weakness in your opponent, you make sure you hold your own serve and put pressure on Murray. Take care of your own game and don't worry about things you can't control. But Murray goes into this match as a strong favourite."

  53. Post update

    Muller 1-0 Murray* (* denotes next to serve)

    A very solid start for Muller as he hits his straps with four first serves in a row. There's a brief flurry of excitement as he bounces a putaway miles into orbit, before he closes out a simple hold to love.

    Piers Newbery

    BBC Sport at Queen's

    Andy Murray and Jamie Delgado

    "Murray comes up against old friend and former stalwart of British doubles in particular, Jamie Delgado, this afternoon.

    "Delgado has been coaching Muller since last year, when they initially teamed up as a doubles pairing.

    "Now firmly in coaches' corner, the 38-year-old from Birmingham will plot the downfall of a man whose wedding he attended only two months ago, and with whom he regularly plays doubles - in snooker."

  56. Even better than the Gilles thing

    Gilles Muller

    As we mentioned, Murray's opponent today is Luxembourgish (we've checked, that is the adjective) world number 48 Gilles Muller.

    Muller is 32 but is enjoying something of a late career renaissance, having reached his career-high ranking of 34 in February and recorded best-ever performances at the Australian and French Opens.

    He can certainly mix it on grass as well - he's already put out reigning champion Grigor Dimitrov and former Wimbledon quarter-finalist Mikhail Youzhny at Queens.

    And yes, he is the current Luxembourg Sports Personality of the Year.

  57. Winning ways

    Andy Murray celebrates

    It's been pretty smooth sailing for Murray so far, even if the British number one still hasn't quite found his best touch on the grass.

    A comfortable straight-sets victory over qualifier Yen-Hsun Lu in round one was followed by a dogged 7-5 6-4 win over Fernando Verdasco yesterday - you can watch the best bits of that match here.

    Murray is the only player yet to drop a set at Queen's this year, and he's now lost just one out of 18 matches since getting married in April. Wedded bliss indeed...

  58. Post update

    Hello and welcome to live text commentary of Andy Murray's Queens quarter-final clash with Gilles Muller.

    All eyes will be on the world number three as he attempts to keep his Wimbledon preparations on track against a dangerous opponent.

    On offer for the winner? A semi-final date with either Viktor Troicki or John Isner...

  59. Pride of a nation

    Tennis player's shadow

    For years, he has carried the hopes of a nation on his shoulders, a lone crusader, a one-man Davis Cup band who has brought his country its greatest ever successes on a tennis court.

    He has overcome tough battles with injury, and now, as he enters the latter stage of his career, he gears up for Wimbledon 2015 in superb form, playing what some have even suggested might be his best ever tennis.

    But that's enough about Luxembourg's Gilles Muller. We're more interested in his opponent today: a certain Andy Murray.
