About this programme

Sue Barker is at the All England Club to present further coverage of the men's singles quarter-finals, with matches including Andy Murray v Grigor Dimitrov and Stan Wawrinka v Roger Federer. Murray has yet to drop a set in four impressive performances so far, but this is due to be a much sterner test of his credentials, as he faces one of the rising stars of the men's game. At this stage last year Murray put the British supporters through a draining, emotional experience in his encounter with Fernando Verdasco. Despite starting as clear favourite against the Spaniard, Murray soon found himself two sets down and on the verge of a dispiriting exit, but the British number one turned things around to win the next two sets 6-1, 6-4 to get his campaign back on track. The fifth set provided yet more drama, as Verdasco refused to buckle, and Murray needed all of his character and ability to finally see off his opponent 7-5 in the decider.
