Andy Murray will play Novak Djokovic in the semi finals of the Olympic Tennis. Both players had straight sets wins over their opponents in the Q-F.

This is apparently the first time these two will have played on grass? Should be a great match

Wow you were quick on the uptake of this one. The match only finished about 10 minutes ago!

It'll be their first competitive match on grass, although they did play each other at Boodles about a month ago, with Novak winning 6-4, 6-4. Andy wasn't taking it at all seriously though, whilst Nole seemed quite competitive.

Interesting yes, Mark but is this where Andy's Olympic quest for a gold medal ends? I would love him to beat Novak but I'm not optimistic. His chances against Tsonga would have been much greater but then I couldn't see Jo Wilfred beating Novak either and he didn't. I'm just a pessimist I suppose but it will be compelling watching and I wouldn't miss it for the world.

Think you've mis-read me mate - loser of Andy's match will go into the bronze play-off against the loser of the other SF.

Two QFs played (Andy and Novak through), two still to be completed (Kei/DelPo and Fed/Isner). The winners of the two matches still to be completed will meet in the SFs (most likely Federer and DelPo). And the loser of Federer/DelPo (presumably) plays Novak/Andy for bronze, whilst the winners go for gold.

It will be interesting, but will it be nice-interesting or not-nice interesting, that is the question?

It would be so good if Andy could beat the "unbeatables" in the big matches.
