Kyrgios out, so justice served in a way.

Gripping tie break in the first set. 6-6 now.

Murray takes it, 9-7. He's having to pull out his best returning game here. Making inroads on the Karlovic serve, but no breaks yet. Oddly, he's having more luck on IK's serve than the Croat is having on his.

Second set much more straightforward. Think it's fair to say he's got Karlovic's number, and at the moment the match has an air of inevitability over it. Unless IK can improve and make headway on the Murray serve in the third set this is looking like it could be over quite soon.

And he does, breaking Murray at last to take the third 7-5. Now there's a game on.

It all went a bit wrong in the third set, but he managed to pull through nicely in the fourth. It's always tough against someone who can serve like that, just ask Djokovic who is one set down to Anderson and was 3-1 down in the second at one point.

Djoko 2 sets down now! :o

The championship is wide open, which is great. If Djokovic gets through this match, it will be through sheer stamina. Murray has proven he can do it, and he's not looking too bad. Federer, old in tennis terms as he may be, is looking his best in years and I'd love for him to get one last grand slam (I assume if he does win, he'll retire soon). And then there's Wawrinka as an outside bet, already with two grand slams under his belt - not somebody to discount outright. This is turning out to be a good year for Wimbledon.

I'm not sure Federer has been really tested yet, the guy he played yesterday was suffering from an injury. The only real issue he has had is in the first set against Query, but he soon faded. So it is difficult to get a proper read on him.

I feel Djokovic will prevail in the one set shoot out today, I feel Anderson had his chance yesterday.

Well Anderson had his chances, but didn't manage it.

Federer sailed through, but at least on iPlayer it would be a short match to catch up on :) .More interesting is whether French open champ Warwrinka will get through QF2 for the other semi, making it anybody's game with no guaranteed places in the final for any of the last four.

Federer mostly a shadow of the player we saw on Friday :(

Not sure what happened there - Fed seemed completely out of sorts. His first serve was nowhere. Djokovic played well but Federer lost it.

Couldn't have been the occasion, and he must know Djokovic's game inside-out with how often they have played each other. Maybe age and what was probably a pretty physically exhausting semi (especially in that heat), bit of stiffness in the joints? Agree that his serve was the reason he lost it like that, never seen him serve so many off-target. Didn't seem to chase down as many balls as usual, either, quite often letting something go that it seemed he should be able to get to.

I'm disappointed for him, I really wanted him to get no.8. You have to wonder if that will ever happen, now.
