    Brilliant match between Wawrinka and Djokovic at the moment. Djokovic fought back after an awesome start from Stan, but the Swiss is playing really well in the fourth set.

    Well done to Kevin Anderson for getting to the 4th round for the first time in a major.

    Wawrinka takes it into a fifth set with a brilliant tie break. Have to say the quality of this match is like something you see in a semi final or final, not the last 16.

    Wawrinka breaks in the final set to go one game up. Wish I was watching it rather than following on BBC text.

    I see most of the women's games are still very one-sided.

    Djokovic wins the match 12-10 in the fifth. One of the best Tennis matches I've seen finished with one of the best points I've seen.

    Well, I was completely wrong about Raonic potentially causing an upset; he was well and truly iced by King Federer. Have to say that Roger is looking like the best player of the tournament so far. Can't wait for his match against Tsonga next, should be a good one.

    Tsonga is by far and away my favourite player; he has had such an injury riddled career yet doesn't take much time to make his mark on the tennis court ... full of charisma too!

    Murray finished his match very quick - a shy over ninety minutes is all it took, but poor old Simon, he looked totally shattered just about all the way through their match.

    Got a feeling Federer is the one to bet on winning this year.

    I reckon Berdych might beat a tired Djoko.

    I cannot believe I am happy to say this, but ... I kind of hope Berdych does beat Djokovic because it shall make it interesting for a neutral tennis fan.

    As a Muzza fan I'd just like to see him not have to face Djoko again should he make the final!

    Tsonga has had a lot of injuries but he's also been heavily criticised by a lot of coaches for not taking advice and doing the same shit over and over again. So much potential but in today's game you need more than that to succeed. I liked him when he first came on the scene but been very disappointed over the years. Berdych is another one. Sooo much talent.

    I just enjoy watching Tsonga play and I have no doubt at all that he could have been a much better player if he listened to his coaches (in the past) but, you know ... that's him in a nut shell.

    Djokovic won a little while ago. He did not look very tired after his recent five hour match either!

    If he didn't play like absolute balls first set, he'd have had a good shout.

    Typical Berdych..

    Moments of brilliance but can't maintain. Rusedski summed it up after the match. Berdych came forward and started vollying in the set he won, then reverted back to baseline rallies and just couldn't stay with Djokovic. Berdych is a great vollyer and needs to come in more often, otherwise he's more often than not going to come off 2nd best. Huge groundstrokes but can't keep them up for long enough.

    Murray demolished Chardy in straight sets ...

    ... and has still yet to drop a set!

    I am looking forward to the semi-final with, most likely, Federer.

    You never really know a player's form until they play someone much higher ranked so we don't yet know how well Murray's really playing. He's playing well from what I can see but isn't serving anywhere near as well as Djokovic and seems to be allowing way too many break points. Not against Chardy but in his previous matches. Djokovic looks much more convincing. Haven't seen Fed play yet.

    Tight match between Federer and Tsonga right now. If Tsonga raises his game against every other player in the same way he does against Federer he would have won a Grand Slam by now. He's like Murray was before he won the US Open.

    This Tsonga-Federer match is fantastic. Some wonderful tennis being played by both players.

    I thought Tsonga had blown it then, but he did a great job breaking again.

    Fed vs Murray should be a great semi. I do love a good semi on a Friday morning.

    I can see Tsonga having moments of brilliance, ala Berdych. but reckon he won't get past Fed.

    Shit, Djokovic is completely dismantling Ferrer right now. He's is going to be some player to beat in the Final, his form has been sublime.

    Ferrer is no Murray or Federer though and is miles behind the top 4. He has no big serve and no real weapons to hurt the big guys on a harcourt. All he has is his fitness and consistancy from the back of the court. OK for most of his matches but doesn't really work against top 4.

    Djokovic won't find his next match as easy..

    I think you're being a little harsh on Ferrer. Ok, he might not win a GS but he's made semi finals before and has beaten Murray at the French Open a few times. He's a clay court specialist who worked really hard to compete just as well on the other surfaces.

    Watched most of it last night and it was a great match. Haven't seen Tsonga play that well against Federer for a long time and he was playing out of his skin. It's a shame Tsonga can't seem to maintain that level consistantly.

    Not being harsh at all, just stating facts. He's an incredible player and has really improved his hardcourt game, having been known as a clay specialist for most of his career. It's just not varied or big enough to really trouble Murray, Fed, Djokovic etc. Beating Murray in Paris on the clay is really no suprise. Ferrer is a clay specialist and it's Murray's worst surface by a country mile.

    I don't think he's being Harsh at all, he said Ferrer doesn't have weapons on a hard court to hurt the top 4, I'd say that's a perfectly accurate and valid statement.
