British Second seed Andy Murray kept Wimbledon hopes alive with a dramatic five-set win over Spaniard Fernando Verdasco.

The 26-year-old Scotsman fought back to beat left-hander, Verdasco, 4-6, 3-6, 6-1,6-4, 7-5 and reach the semi-finals for the fifth year in a row.

Murray was on the verge of joining Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal as the latest victim of a huge upset after the first two sets, but battled his way through in three hours and 27 minutes.

“There has been a lot of matches where I’ve been behind and managed to turn it around,” Murray told BBC Sport. “I don’t know if it is the most emotional match, but it was an unbelievable atmosphere and great to get through.”

He moves on to face 24th seed Jerzy Janowicz in Friday’s semi-finals, after the Pole beat his compatriot Lukasz Kubot 7-5, 6-4, 6-4 on Court One.
