Roger Federer has won the first set of his semi-final against Andy Murray, breaking the Scot in his final service match to take it 7-5.

Both players held serve faultlessly in a match brimming with quality in front of a packed Centre Court until Murray served to stay in the set at 5-6.

A magnificent single-handed backhand from Federer gave the Swiss legend hope of breaking, and when Murray planted a shot into the net, he was two points away from clinching the first set.

Federer pounced on Murray's second serve to win two set points, and eventually made the second of those count. The British number one has a mountain to climb if he wants to make Sunday's final.
