Murray in Wimbledon semi-finals

Andy Murray

Britain's number one tennis player Andy Murray is through to the semi-finals at Wimbledon after beating Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Murray lost the first set but came back to win by three sets to one.

The Scot said: "It was a really tough first couple of sets. I was having to defend a lot but I was really strong in the last sets."

He'll face Rafael Nadal in Friday's semi-final and added: "It'll be a great match. I'm looking forward to it."

He and the Spanish star have won two matches each playing in the Grand Slam tournaments.

But there was a big shock at Wimbledon earlier as Roger Federer - who has won the competition six times - was knocked out by Czech Tomas Berdych.
