Getting closer… as he beats John Isner to reach the Olympic singles semi-finals, where he will play Juan Martin del Potro.

John Lloyd, BBC tennis commentator
“It was a staggering performance from both players. It was a great match – one of the best three-set matches I’ve ever seen. It really was first class from the moment the players stepped on court. You could see how much it meant to both players. Once again, the master Federer showed that when it comes down to it, there’s never been anyone like him on the crunch points.”

Roger Federer kisses the Swiss flag on his shirt as he ends the longest tennis match in Olympic history with a sublime backhand down the line. The Wimbledon champion then raises his arms aloft after reaching the men’s final with a 3-6 7-6 (7-5) 19-17 win over a now tearful Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina.

Tim Henman, Olympic silver medallist and BBC Sport tennis pundit
“Absolutely amazing. Everyone’s been talking about whether the roof was going to be closed, who was going to be favourite. I had Federer as slight favourite, but to come out and play the greatest player in our sport and win in under two hours is just unbelievable. There’s so much momentum on the British team and Andy has taken advantage of that. It’s the best performance I’ve seen in a big match from him.”
…Murray deserved it… he really did.

Agreed completely with the deserving part. Murray has done so much lately to deserve a win.

Now it was reality that felt like a dream.
If he needed confirmation there was Roger Federer, the world No. 1, winner of 17 Grand Slams, standing across the net. Federer was smiling. It had to be agony for the 30-year-old Swiss, who wanted this gold medal just as much, but Federer is a champion with a sense of history, and he understood the significance of what had happened here, at his expense.
