Marin Cilic advances to Wimbledon semifinals

American Sam Querrey will play Croatia's Marin Cilic in the other semi-final.

The top-seeded Murray flicked a cross-court backhand passing shot so forcefully, placed it so perfectly, that Querrey barely got his racket on the ball, sending a volley well wide.

The Serb retired after an elbow injury during the match in which he had lost the opening set and was down a break before deciding to quit.

As the match wore on, the hitch in Murray's step became more pronounced, his shots less effective. But Wimbledon, like the other three Slams, is not a WTA event, hence no coaching is allowed.

Otherwise, Djokovic had little trouble eliminating 51st-ranked Adrian Mannarino of France 6-2, 7-6 (5), 6-4 in a match postponed Monday night because of darkness. He also won in the Wimbledon semifinals in 2010, when he was the runner-up to Nadal. "I mean, if someone feels bad about it, it's me". "Unfortunately, today was the worst day".

"It's been something that I've been dragging back and forth for a while now", Djokovic said about his shoulder.

Seven times Wimbledon victor, Roger Federer has yet to be truly stretched but Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov should give observers some clues as to just how sharp the Swiss's form is.

The 35-year-old Federer, who has won seven of his record 18 Grand Slam championships at the All England Club, is the grass-court tournament's oldest semifinalist since Ken Rosewall in 1974 at age 39.

A day after defeating world number one Angelique Kerber, Gabrine Muguruza defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 to advance to her second Wimbledon semifinals. "I think the last match on the Centre Court was done before 7". Muller advanced to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon for the first time by beating Nadal in five sets in the fourth round.

A spokesman at Downing Street, which would be in charge of the plans for the visit, would not confirm the plans. But when pressed on when the visit would likely take place he replied: 'We'll work that out'.

Querrey hit 27 aces against Murray and was impeccable for portions of the match, finishing with 70 winners and only 30 unforced errors.

"He was dictating all of the points", Murray said.

The second-seed took a 3-0 lead in the second but Mannarino broke back in the seventh game and took the contest to a tie-break.

"I didn't start my best, but I just kept with it".

"I have played on better courts".

"Last year definitely kind of gave me a new boost that I could do it".

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at three talking points from a dramatic day nine at the All England Club. He entered the tournament after pulling out of two exhibition matches citing a sore left hip.

His serve speeds slowed in the latter stages Wednesday. It was a flawless setting, handsome weather - a Mexican wave on Centre Court, you don't see that every day.

"I had a really tough time", Rybarikova said, "and right now, I'm here, and everything paid off". "Obviously, the end was a bit of a struggle".
