Andy Murray progressed to the semi-finals of Wimbledon with straight sets win over Vasek Pospisil on Wednesday.

The third seed needed two hours and 11 minutes in a match that was twice interrupted by the rain to see off the Grand Slam quarter-finals first-timer 6-4 7-5 6-4.

The win was Murray’s 150th in a Grand Slam championship, taking his career record at the All England Club to 46-8. The Scot will face second seed Roger Federer in the next round, looking to return on equal footing with the Swiss on their career head-to-head record which currently stands at 12-11 to the latter’s advantage.

Murray had broken Pospisil for a 3-1 lead when play was first suspended due to rainfall. The match resumed after 37 minutes and was later halted in the second set while the 2013 champion was to serve at 3-4.

The players returned under the closed Centre Court roof and the second set went with serves until the 14th game when the Canadian was punished for time violation at 5-5 30/30 after exceeding the 20 seconds between points.

Murray capitalised on Pospisil’s ill-luck to nose ahead before converting set point on his first asking while the Canadian struggled.

Murray appeared to be in control in the third set until he failed to convert two break point opportunities at 3-3.

The British No. 1 then saved a break point before clinching victory.

Murray and his sibling Jamie are the first brothers to reach the semi-finals of the men’s double and singles events at the same Wimbledon since Australians John and Neale Fraser in 1962.
