London: The most gripping of the four quarter-finals saw world number four Murray reach his fourth successive semi-final with a 6-7 (5/7), 7-6 (8/6), 6-4, 7-6 (7/4) win over Spain's David Ferrer on Centre Court.
Murray, hoping to end Britain's 76-year wait for a male singles champion at Wimbledon, is now just one win away from becoming the first British man to reach the All England Club final since Bunny Austin in 1938.
"Ferrer is a great player. He's an unbelievably hard worker. I just played a bit better at the end of the sets," Murray said.
