Kind of agree.  If Fed beat Cilic, he would likely beat Raonic too.  Cilic - if playing well - by far the most dangerous opponent for Fed in the top half.

Has a former champ playing in it as well!

Three match points to Marray and partner.
Erm, still 0-40. No idea what's going on as its not televised!

It's finished, Marray and his partner have won 14-12
Good stuff. Marray into another Wim QF. He couldn't win again could he?!

Hard to judge. I'm assuming that Serena's match is currently awaiting the roof going up? I'd pop out now as Murray won't be on for at least an hour.

Stinker of a game from Goffin. Raonic has a break! Comeback on?

Hmm....

Can we be sure (the present-day error-prone) Fed "would have crushed Raonic" ....?   chin

In their last five meetings, it's 3-2 to Federer ; and 6 sets won, but five conceded.

Good to see Goffin showing some form  OK

Poor game from Goffin that really, couple of loose shots, and Raonic has some sort of foothold.

I am not, but that is not quite what I said.  I said that I thought that if he first beat Cilic, then he would also beat Raonic.  I could see Fed playing poorly enough that they would both beat him, but I think that Cilic when playing well (as he seems to be) is harder for Fed to beat.

From 4-5 down Serena has obliterated Kuz - now 75 50. Not long until the big match.

Three clean return winners in the last game - 43 winners in total. Brutal from Serena.

Bit weird that Milos is playing on Court 2 whilst J-MC is on centre talking about the Murray match. I know he's a consultant but must be strange when he's not there.

Raonic clawing his way back into the match, though really more through Goffin's level dipping than Raonic's improving.

Raonic in the 5th set now. It looks like Tomic is headed there too.

Raonic up a break in the 5th. Bad loss for Goffin given his dominance early on. 

Tomic has saved break points in all three service games in the 5th - got to assume he will get a break himself soon!

Murray never wins big tiebreaks so essential he wins this next game. Neither player can play better than this. Awesome set.

The switch to BBC2 works for Murray!

Excellent from Murray. Well-deserved set. Needs to maintain this level though as Kyrgios is playing great.
