    Nadal 7-5 6-7 (7-9) 4-6 6-4 6-4 Del Potro

    Rafael Nadal after his win over Juan Martin Del Potro:

    "I think it was great quality tennis, the final set was there were some amazing points. Sorry to Juan Martin, an amazing opponent and player. In some ways he deserves to go through too.

    "Anything could happen, so this is a big achievement for me to get to the semi-finals at Wimbledon.

    "The last set has a little of everything, great points, great rallies, he was hitting crazy with his forehands. I tried to resist, maintaining focus.

    "Now is the moment to enjoy but start to recover, it was a tough physical battle. the opponent that is coming one of the toughest. I am just excited to be in the semis. I need to recover to give my best.

    And asked about England's on-going World Cup semi-final: "Maybe it's coming home, let's see. I will watch the match now in the locker room."

    Tim Henman

    Former British number one on BBC TV

    It was such a great effort from Del Potro. After losing the first set we thought he would be up against it but he did well to get on level terms and then get his nose in front.

    It was Rafa's resilience, his intensity to find a way to come out on top.

  6. 'I felt very lucky to watch that'

    Nadal 7-5 6-7 (7-9) 4-6 6-4 6-4 Del Potro

    Andy Murray

    Two-time Wimbledon champion on BBC TV

    It was a great match that got better and better. That fifth set one of the best sets I have ever seen.

    Both played at such a high level, huge hitting and we saw great touch too. It was a great match and I felt very lucky to watch that,

    Nadal 7-5 6-7 (7-9) 4-6 6-4 6-4 Del Potro

    Rafael Nadal returns to the middle of the court and celebrates. He's back in the last four on the Wimbledon grass.

    Del Potro slowly disappears. Nadal and the rest of Centre Court applaud him as he exits.

  8. Game, set and match - Nadal

    Nadal 7-5 6-7 (7-9) 4-6 6-4 6-4 Del Potro

    No one deserved to lose but Rafael Nadal is into the Wimbledon semi-finals again.

    Del Potro falls flat on the court. Nadal hops over the net and the pair embrace.

    A fitting finish with both players in each other's arms.

    Morgwn: I think Nadal and Del Potro are giving us one of, it not the best set of tennis ever. Unbelievable 5th set from both men. Incredible play. Each and every game is an epic in it's own right.

    Emma: Everything I love about tennis is on display right now. My heart can’t take it. Come on Delpo!

    My heart...

    Nadal goes wide at the end of another marathon rally. Del Potro looks knackered but is still going.

    30-15.

    Andy Murray

    Two-time Wimbledon champion on BBC TV

    There's a choice for Del Potro to make. Does he go for it, take his chances with the forehand or put balls back in play and make Nadal work for it? Does he make Nadal think about it? I think he has to go for it.

  15. Post update

    *Nadal 7-5 6-7 (7-9) 4-6 6-4 5-4 Del Potro

    It is in.

    15-0.

    *Nadal 7-5 6-7 (7-9) 4-6 6-4 5-4 Del Potro

    A challenge from Nadal mid-point. This has to be in or he loses the point.

  17. Post update

    *Nadal 7-5 6-7 (7-9) 4-6 6-4 5-4 Del Potro

    Juan Martin del Potro steps from his chair for possibly the last time. He's had chances in the last few games. Can he create another?

    Rafa is serving for the semi-final.

    Nadal 7-5 6-7 (7-9) 4-6 6-4 5-3 Del Potro*

    That's just stupid 107mph winner from Juan Martin del Potro. The noise it made off the racquet will have measured on the Richter Scale.

    30-0.
