Roger Federer moved to within one set of the Wimbledon final after going 2-0 up against Andy Murray.

Murray saved five set points during a marathon game to hold his serve and make it 5-5 in their semi-final.

However, Swiss Federer then held his serve with ease before breaking Murray and taking the set 7-5.

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.

Sharapova lost to Williams for a 17th consecutive time in Thursday's semi-final, the top seed American prevailing 6-2 6-4.

Mr Cameron told the England stars on leaving Number 10 "take your earplugs, they're quite loud", referring to Sharapova and Williams' on-court grunting.

When asked for her thoughts on Mr Cameron's joke, Sharapova replied: "Next question please."
