  1. - - Dimitrov is very emotional having won that match and bursts into tears after shaking Anderson's hand. He is the first man through to the semi-finals, which should (weather-permitting) take place tomorrow afternoon

  2. - - DIMITROV 4-6 6-4 6-3 - GAME, SET & MATCH - Match point Dimitrov as Anderson dumps a backhand into the net. Anderson saves it with a huge serve out wide but he sends a cross court backhand wide to hand Dimitrov a second chance. The Bulgarian gets a second serve to look at this time but can only return it into the net. But Dimitrov does win at the third attempt when Anderson hits into the net

  3. - - DIMITROV 4-6 6-4 5-3 - Anderson is left swiping his racquet at the ground in frustration after failing to take adavantage of a break back point, Dimitrov coming up with a big serve just when it mattered. And the Bulgarian goes on to hold with a cross court forehand winner that wrong-foots Anderson on the baseline. The South African will have to serve to stay in the match next

  4. - - DIMITROV 4-6 6-4 4-3 - Much better from Anderon once again now as he eases through a service hold to remain just the one break down. One break has been enough for each of the last two sets though
