Wimbledon 2014 Video: Andy Murray meets Gregor Dimitrov, all-Swiss clash between Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka

Video: Paul Newman and Chris Jones look ahead to day nine at Wimbledon 2014, discussing the matches of Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer

For the seventh year in succession, Andy Murray heads into a Wimbledon quarter-final today as he faces close friend and 11th-seed Grigor Dimitrov.

While Murray returns to Centre Court knowing full well what to expect, it is relatively new territory for Dimitrov, who will have to overcome a crowd heavily in favour of the local hero and reigning champion. Still, Dimitrov will take inspiration from his quarter-final run at this year's Australian Open.

Following Murray's match will be the all-Swiss battle for a place in the last four between Stanislas Wawrinka and Roger Federer.

Elsewhere, 2011 Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic will look to set-up a semi-final against the winner of Murray and Dimitrov as he meets Marin Cilic.

The 25-year-old Croatian is being coached by 2001 wild card winner Goran Ivanisevic and will hope to follow his coach’s epic run in the tournament 13 years ago.
