Andy Murray shakes off Tsonga

However, Murray - the highest seed remaining in the competition following Novak Djokovic's elimination - is looking forward to taking on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga next and hopes the adrenaline from a tight match can help push him into the final four.

However, he has lost eight of his 10 Grand Slam finals and has lost four semi-finals and two quarter-finals here.

Murray was a four-set victor both times on the grass of the All England Club and given Tsonga's lack of matches of late and the current form of the Scot it seems unlikely that Jo will knock Andy off his perch on Wednesday afternoon.

This pair first met way back in 2004, believe it or not, in the Nottingham Challenger on the grass, and a victory for Tsonga there remains one of only three career wins for the Frenchman over the Scot. There's a lot more hopes left than me.

As Tsonga's form was on an upswing, so Murray's was dipping downwards.

But Murray will not under-estimate the two-time semi-finalist.

It's not often that Britain's number one tennis player also happens to be one of the very best in the world. "I just tried to use all of my energy at the beginning of the fifth set to get up early and the crowd pumped up".

The second seed then claimed the opening set with a volley into an open court on his fourth set point. I'm still alive in this tournament. But there are positive things, I am happy because I played well. He won the US Open. The gloomy face Goran Ivanisevic, the former star and presently the coach of Cilic was indicating the frustration of losers.

Sam Querrey made it farther than he ever has in a Grand Slam, but he fell in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon on Wednesday.

"Goran's done a wonderful job with Marin. He got him to the next level", said third seed Federer, who will be playing in a record-equalling 14th quarter-final at the tournament.

There, he will face No. 3 Roger Federer, who prevailed in his quarterfinal matchup over Marin Cilic on Wednesday.

Murray has made a habit of fighting back from two sets down but this time it was Tsonga who threatened to do the improbable and end the Dunblane star's 2016 dream.

Cilic, the ninth seed, has never faced Federer on grass, and is attempting to make the semi-finals at the All England Club for the first time.

The Canadian produced an irresistible display of classic grasscourt tennis to overcome giant-killer Sam Querrey 6-4 7-5 5-7 6-4.

He holds a 2-1 winning record over Raonic and is the first American man in the quarter-finals in five years. In the fourth set Murray was up 4-2 and ended the set losing the next four games.

Tomas Berdych advanced to the Wimbledon semifinals for the second time, beating Lucas Pouille 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-2 on Court No. 1.

A little glimpse into the way Andy Murray is perceived around these parts - and the sorts of questions put to him at post-match news conferences.

Murray then ends the second frame after a 40-30 win in the seventh game, leaving him one set away from sealing off the floundering Frenchman.
