...
9 games all in the decider. It's a long long ride and Djokovic is yet to come onto court.
...
SIX GAMES ALL IN THE FINAL SET. 

We're so nervous even our nerves are nervous. Whichever player you're supporting! 
...
Either way, Nadal's up 30-15 in the final game. Both players only two points away from finishing this match...
...
Rafael Nadal gets in some UNNNHHHHs there and sends a backhand into the net. 
...
Phenomenal stuff from Gilles Muller to hold to love here for a 6-5 lead! Again, Nadal serves to stay in this match.
...
...
And he hooooolds! Rafael Nadal levels at 5-5 and now Muller has to work a bit more if he wants the win. 
...
Nadal double faults at match point. 

Then hits an ace.

Then takes it to deuce.

Only Nadal.
...
But wait a minute.

Things are level in Rafa Nadal's match at two sets apiece but Muller takes a great service hold at 5-4 and now Nadal serves to stay in Wimbledon! 
...
Roger Federer beats Grigor Dimitrov 6-4, 6-2, 6-4!
...
Federer's quickly brought up match point already as Dimitrov doesn't bother much with a good return. 

Dimitrov returns long..

and that's 

GAME SET MATCH ROGER FEDERER! 
...
That first shot tells me what I need to know - that Grigor Dimitrov has given up.
...
Roger Federer breaks back immediately as Dimitrov tries some things - among them a nice big forehand that's just too big enough and goes long.

5-4 to Roger Federer, and he serves for the match.
...
That lasted long....not! 
...
And with that phenomenal cross-court backhand, Dimitrov breaks! He takes it to 4-4 in the final set..or is it the final set just yet? He'll want to hope not.
...
And a second break point also saved. Dimitrov nets that backhand as he tries to keep it low. 

It's a bit too low. 

Deuce.
...
Dimitrov brings up BREAK POINT here on Federer's second serve. A great shot from Federer but an impressive sliding return from Dimitrov. Less Baby Federer with that one, more Baby Djokovic. First break point saved by Roger Federer.
...
PSA. PSA. Gilles Muller leads 3-2 on serve in the fifth set against Rafael Nadal and we're certainly biting our nails here - not sure there are any left! 
...
A couple of great shots now from Grigor Dimitrov, who times a few backhands to perfection with a shot that looks like it's half Milos Raonic, half Roger Federer. But it's too little too late now, and Federer wants to finish this off quickly. 

Federer leads 4-3 in the third set, up a break of serve.
...
Service is back to normal. Service is back to normal. 

Figuratively and literally as Roger Federer holds for a 4-2 lead! 
...
And he breaks! 3-2 lead to Roger Federer here and he expresses his derision for Dimitrov's 'Baby Federer' moniker, and clearly so.
...
Unfortunately that's a BP wasted.
Deuce.
...
Beautiful from Roger Federer here to run into the net with a great backhand shot! He levels with Dimitrov - and pulls out some great hitting. Not a sign of tiredness from either player right now and absolute scientific precision from the Swiss! 

Now at 2-2, Federer has break point! 
...
...
Meanwhile, Rafael Nadal rallies back from two sets down to love - to level at two each! We're going into Set Number 5.....
