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.
