Murray rests after night of toil
Andy Murray will have been enjoying a well-deserved lie-in after roaring into the fourth round of Wimbledon following the latest ever finish at the All England Club.
The British number one saw off former grand slam finalist Marcos Baghdatis in a marathon match which finished just after 11pm on Saturday night - over-running the cut-off time matches usually have to finish by two minutes.
Amid fears the contest would have to be suspended until Sunday, the Scot - buoyed by support from fans who cheered and chanted at various points - raced against the clock to take the record-breaking game 7-5 3-6 7-5 6-1.
Following the game he said: "I was under the impression I was stopping at 11pm, regardless of what the score was. Even if it was in the middle of a game. But I'm glad that I managed to get the finish. And, you know, the atmosphere at the end was excellent."
The British-hopeful did not tie up victory until 11.02pm, beating the previous record for the latest SW19 finish of 10.58pm set by Novak Djokovic and Olivier Rochus two years ago. The official curfew is 11pm - the time the final game of Saturday's encounter began.
The Scot, who was cheered on by mother Judy Murray and girlfriend Kim Sears, struggled at times with apparent injury and difficulties with balls falling out of his pockets, while the centre court roof was closed halfway through the contest.
But the move seemed to improve the world number four's game and he went on to convincingly beat his rival, who was coached by his own former coach Miles Maclagan, setting up a fourth round showdown with Croatian Marin Cilic.
The Scot made his now trademark gesture of pointing to the sky after his victory, stopping to sign autographs on his way off the court.
Murray described the hard-fought contest as one of his most memorable matches at Wimbledon, adding: "I think the quality of tennis improved under the roof."
Asked what he would be doing on Sunday - the traditional rest day of the tournament - he said: "I will try and have a long lie in and make sure to see the physio a lot."
