- - MURRAY 7-5 7-5 - BREAK! GAME, SET AND MATCH MURRAY! Djokovic has been broken - he lets a 0-40 lead rack up against the serve - and Murray's backhand is arrowed in at the feet of the Serb, who cannot lift it back over. MURRAY WILL PLAY ROGER FEDERER IN THE GOLD MEDAL MATCH - A REPEAT OF THE WIMBLEDON FINAL!
- - MURRAY 7-5 6-5 - Murray slips at 15-30 down, and he feels his calf as he does so - he looks less than comfortable, but wins the next point in a nerve-jangling exchange with Djokovic with both men at the net. Djokovic brings up another break point, but Murray saves it with some terrific defence. He thinks he's held with an ace but it was narrowly out. But he gets the job done, and screams in delight. Djokovic knocks on the door again, Murray keeps it closed.
- - MURRAY 7-5 5-5 - The crowd goes up a gear as Murray wins the first point - he's just three points from victory! But Djokovic doesn't know when he's beaten, and he responds with a quite sublime winner and the trademark intense stare and chest thump. The next three points follow in quick succession.
- - MURRAY 7-5 5-4 - Murray so close to holding with a superb defensive backhand, which beats Djokovic with a clip of the net cord. But it bounces just out, and Djokovic then forces a break point. A pumped Murray saves it, and comes through to hold to rapturous applause.
- - MURRAY 7-5 4-4 - Djokovic saved match points in a five-setter against Andreas Seppi at Roland-Garros on his way to the final, he's saved match points in a US Open semi-final against Federer - he won't be panicking. But the pressure is building. He levels once again.
- - MURRAY 7-5 4-3 - Murray holds to 30, finishing off this game with an ace. The Serb is not playing badly, but the Scot has an answer for everything at the moment, and time is running out for the world number two to get in front and level the match.
- - MURRAY 7-5 3-3 - No let up from Djokovic, however. The man who went from January until May of 2011 unbeaten is made of sterner stuff, and holds to love.
- - MURRAY 7-5 3-2 - He just keeps nosing in front. Murray not letting the world number two get past him, and the Serb may come to regret the break point chance he let slip.
- - MURRAY 7-5 2-2 - Murray not happy with himself, but he's done a decent job to keep the pressure on his Serbian opponent by recovering from 40-0 to 40-30 down. Neither player enjoying easy holds of serve at the moment.
- - MURRAY 7-5 2-1 - See-saw game from Murray - the sort that would drive his fans to despair. From 0-30 down he gets ahead, then misses game point and throws his racket to the ground in frustration. Djokovic brings up a break point, Murray denies him, and somehow he goes on to hold. As you were, then.
- - MURRAY 7-5 1-1 - Djokovic looked rattled after a quite brilliant get from Murray at full stretch on the dive to make it 15-30, but he digs deep and comes through.
- - MURRAY 7-5 1-0 - A big hold after a breakthrough in the first set. He could have lost the momentum, but he nudges in front in the second, and now the pressure is firmly back on Djokovic.
- - MURRAY 7-5 - SET! TERRIFIC! He earned a set point with some pulsating play, and he took it with a ripping forehand pass beyond Djokovic's outstretched racket. Djokovic lost a set to Lleyton Hewitt earlier this weel, but this is another test altogether. Murray just one set away.
- - MURRAY 6-5 - That's impressive - Murray responds with an equally solid hold of serve. Murray a far improved player from the man who bowed out in the first round of the Beijing Olympics. The trouble for the Scot is that the Serb has improved just as much. Still, he has to do it all over again to stay in the set.
- - MURRAY 5-5 - Textbook from Djokovic. A man who's won four of the last seven Grand Slams knows how to negotiate pressure situations, and in double-quick time he's levelled the first set.
- - MURRAY 5-4 - After two tighter games, Murray comes through a relatively easy hold. His serve has been his most-improved weapon over the last couple of years, and it's firing so far. Hold of serve, and Djokovic now has to serve to stay in the opening set.
- - MURRAY 4-4 - No easy games in this contest now. Djokovic being made to work very hard indeed to keep with Murray, although the Scot's cursing and negative body language is starting to show. A forehand into the net after chasing down a ball from midcourt does his mood no good.
- - MURRAY 4-3 - The Scot pushed to his very limits by Djokovic. Time and again he brings up game point - time and again he is denied it. Eventually he comes through, and that could prove a crucial hold as we reach the business end of the set. Lengthy exchange.
- - MURRAY 3-3 - The Scot started the better, but now both players are hitting top gear. Murray prepared to attack the net, Djokovic prepared to pass him. Hold to 30 for the Serb, winning through as Murray slips, drawing gasps from the crowd. But he's alright, and back to his feet.
- - MURRAY 3-2 - Super game. There are some Serbian fans at Centre Court today, but it's still a crowd who are rooting for Murray on the whole. Djokovic piles on the pressure, but Murray pulls away at 30-30, sealing the game point with some superb defensive lobs and an eventual smashed putaway.
- - MURRAY 2-2 - An altogether improved service game from the Serb, who was a bronze medallist in Beijing. He's just one match away from going at least one better this time around.
- - MURRAY 2-1 - Two most emphatic service holds from Murray. The Djokovic return struggling against a man who looks in excellent touch. But will the Scot regret missing those two break points in the previous game?
- - MURRAY 1-1 - It's almost remarkable that Djokovic is not the world number one after the year he's had - he's the reigning champion in two Grand Slams. But Murray has started superbly, racing to 15-40 on the Serb's serve with a vicious forehand crosscourt. Djokovic forces him back to deuce, and like the champion he is, comes through to hold.
- - MURRAY 1-0 - A very solid opening serve from the Scot, who holds to love. The crowd, who were conspicuously absent during the Serena match moments earlier, are back in force, and firmly behind the British player.
- - Murray to serve first. Game on!
- - Djokovic leads the head-to-head 8-5 - but Murray was the man who fared better at Wimbledon 2012. He went to the final, and could face a repeat of that fateful match with Federer.
- - Awaiting the winner of this match is the current world number one and reigning Wimbledon champion Roger Federer. He had an extraordinary semi-final against Juan Martin del Potro. Here's how it finished:
- - Hello and welcome to live text commentary as Andy Murray faces Novak Djokovic for a place in the Olympic final! It's a huge match, and the winner is guaranteed at least a silver medal.
