Tsonga and photographers

Yesterday saw a pretty good day of tennis, although neither of the players that I finally decided I liked made it through, which is disappointing. Today we have more great stuff in store with the Men's Semi-Finals.

First up on Centre Court, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga versus Novak Djokovic. Tsonga has been something of a surprise so far this tournament, particularly knocking out Federer, as he did in the last round. However, he's been playing very well and looking confident, so he should be on top form. Djokovic, however, seems to have been struggling the more this tournament goes on. His last round match saw him looking particularly despondent, so the big question is what mood he'll be in when he takes to the courts today.

Following their match, Rafael Nadal versus Andy Murray. Murray is playing well and will have the power of the crowd behind him, but they do so love Nadal too. It's going to be a tough ask for Murray to get past the World Number 1, although Nadal has seemed a little injury-prone so far this tournament. Anyone counted the number of times he's called out the trainer?

Elsewhere, British player Liam Broady is through to the semi-finals in the junior championships, whilst Sabine Lisicki will be back in action on Centre in her doubles semi-final match as well.

The weather forecasts suggest sun throughout the day, with some clouds during the afternoon, but certainly no rain. We'll see.
