 There was a brief delay because someone was taken ill.

 

Andy wins 6-4 6-2

Yay, and I believe Gilles (14-2) now moves clear first ahead of David Ferrer (13-6) as Andy's most conquered opponent.

L16:  (2) Andy Murray WR 2 defeated (16) Gilles Simon WR 18 by 4 & 2

*****

Next on the agenda could have been Ferrer (9), but Berd-brain's just despatched him in straight sets.

QF:  (8) Tomas Berdych (CZE) WR 8 (CH = 4 last May) vs (2) Andy Murray WR 2

Andy just edges the head-to-head by 7-6, Andy having won the last three encounters, all on hard courts, last year.  Berd-brain hasn't beaten him since Cinci in 2013.

But as some guy called Steven wink on Twitter points out, they have only played 3 times on clay and Berdych has won all three.

Muzza on fire at the moment and hopefully about to wrap this up. This has been a comprehensive performance. MP now.

Nicely put, wimbledont.

Now that's the kind of performance that one really hopes to see more of! Good, quick, clinical win.
