  1. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 6-7(5) - GAME, SET & MATCH - The third seed Janko Tipsarevic has joined the list of casualty, Lu wrapping up the win at the first attempt when Tipso sends a forehand long. The highest seed left now? Sixth-seeded Marin Cilic, who is Lu's next opponent - later on this afternoon, depending on the weather

  2. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 6-6 (5-6) - TIE-BREAK - Lu slips on the service line but still manages to play a backhand from his knees, a la Rafael Nadal. But Tipsarevic quickly sneaks ahead with first a forehand winner and then a deft, stretched backhand drop volley. He squanders the chance to earn himself a couple of match points with a regulation forehand into the net and Lu levels before earning himself a match point with an ace

  3. - - TIPSAREVIC 36 6-2 6-6(3-3) - TIE-BREAK - Tipsarevic races out to a 3-0 mini-break lead before being pegged back by a Lu forehand winner and consecutive backhand errors from the Serb. There is still nothing to chose between these two players at the change of ends

  4. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 6-6 - This match will be decided by a tie-break as Lu does brilliantly well to get himself out of trouble from 0-30 down with an ace before going on to hold when Tipsarevic sends a forehand long of the baseline

  5. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 6-5 - Tipsarevic, once again, within a game of victory as Lu's backhand down the centre of the court is caught by the wind and carried well long. Lu wil have to serve to extend this match for a second time

  6. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 5-5 - All credit to Lu as he recovers from 15-30 down after a shocking error into the net, to go on and hold after a lengthy rally that ends with Tipso hitting a stretched backhand into the net

  7. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 5-4 - Lu will have to summon up all his stubborness now as he prepares to serve to stay in the match, Tipsarevic holding to 15 with a heavy first serve and forehand winner

  8. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 4-4 - Lu quickly puts the disappointment of not breaking in that previous game behind him, holding for the loss of just the one point, by working his way into the net and dispatching a backhand volley winner

  9. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 4-3 - Lu pulls up short a couple of times in the game, hobbling slightly, but consecutive backhands into the net from Tipso allow the world number 57 to level at deuce before a backhand winner down the line earns him a break point ... Tipsarevic saves it with a backhand down the line and goes on to hold by racing up to a drop shot and dinking it back across court for a winner

  10. - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 3-3 - Tipsarevic squanders a chance to set up a break point when he sends a regulation backhand just long of the baseline. He does end up with a break point, forcing Lu into the error, but fails to take advantage (instead hitting long) and Lu goes on to hold when Tipso hits long again

  11. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 3-2 - Another quick and easy service hold from Tipso sees him sneak in front again, Lu sending a forehand return of serve sailing out of court.

  12. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 2-2 - Lu, now playing in a white shirt instead of the orange he started the day in, easily works his way up to a shorter ball and fires a forehand into the open court to level up

  13. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 2-1 - Boom! Ace number eight quickly wraps up that hold for Tipsarevic as he sneaks out in front in this final set, albeit only on serve

  14. - - Here we go then, the third attempt to complete this match is about to get underway ...

  15. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 1-1 15-40 - Tipsarevic appears to be on his way to a love service hold but loses concentration as the rain begins to fall. Lu pegs a point back with a cross court backhand return of serve winner. Play is halted and the ground-staff come on to assess the conditions. The players are asked to wait just a minute ...

  16. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 1-1 - Despite opening the game with another double, Lu suddenly re-discovers his form on serve (something he was doing so well last night) and he holds without any more trouble, halting the run of games against him

  17. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 1-0 - A sixth succesive game goes the way of Tipsarevic as he finds yet another ace to seal a quick and easy hold to open this final set. Lu continues to battle with conditions, not really making allowances in his footwork for the wind and the skiddy nature of the turf

  18. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 6-2 - SET - A brilliant change-of-direction off-forehand winner across court from Tipsarevic earns him two set points ... The first is saved by Lu as he comes up with a cracking, deep first serve. But Tipso does level the match at the second attempt with a regulation, but blistering, cross court forehand winner

  19. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 5-2 - Another mis-hit ground-stroke, this time a backhand, goes sailing long from Lu as he starts to show some dis-spirited body language. And Tipso goes on to hold to love with a huge first serve. That's the break consolidated for the Serb and Lu will have to serve to stay in this second set after the change of ends

  20. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 4-2 - BREAK - Lu slaps a forehand approach shot into the net before a first double fault of the match sees him slip to 0-30 down and a forehand long hands Tipso three break points. He saves the first with his fourth ace of the match but hits into the net once again on the second and Tipso has the break in this second set

  21. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 3-2 - Tipso batters down a 126mph serve out wide to hold to love to get his side of the scoreboard ticking over once again

  22. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 2-2 - A solid enogh service hold from Lu to get things back underway, the world number 57 holding to 30 when Tipsarevic sends a forehand sailing long and wide down the line

  23. - - TIPSAREVIC 3-6 2-1 - We are ready to get back underway in this clash on Centre Court with Lu serving at 1-2 in the second set. It's on serve in this second set with Lu having taken the first also
