Andy Murray's older brother Jamie will attempt to outshine his brother when he steps on Centre Court today, as he bids to reach the men's doubles final.

Jamie, 29, will be aiming to match his mixed doubles title in 2007, and laughed off the claim that Andy was a jinx for him.

"I've lost a lot of matches where he hasn't been there so I'm not quite sure that's true," he said. "He can watch if he wants to."

Murray and Australian partner John Peers will take on Israeli Jonathan Erlich and German Philipp Petzchner in today's semi-final, straight after Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova face off for a place in the women's singles final.

Djokovic plans apology after ball girl incident

Novak Djokovic says he will apologise to a Wimbledon ball girl who was left shaken after the Serbian tennis star shouted at her.

The reigning Wimbledon strike was heard to shout 'towel' at the youth, having lost a point in a crucial game with Kevin Anderson, which left the girl 'trembling'.

When asked about the incident, Djokovic said: "I'm sorry. There was nothing towards her.

"Maybe she was just afraid of my screaming there. I was pretty close to her. I'm definitely going to try to apologise to her if I did something wrong."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be in the stands at Wimbledon today hoping to cheer Andy Murray into the tournament's semi-finals.

The British number one takes on big server Vasek Pospisil, who played two five-set matches on Monday - one of which was against his older brother Jamie.

Speaking ahead of the game - which William and Kate will watch from Centre Court's Royal Box - Murray said: "He may also be a little bit fatigued, but then again he's played so much tennis that he's going to be comfortable in the conditions and in a good rhythm.

"If he is tired I'll obviously try to capitalise on that, but I won't bank on it," he added.

Maria Sharapova edges into Wimbledon last four

Maria Sharapova has reached the Wimbledon semi-finals for the fifth time in her career with a three sets victory over Coco Vandeweghe.

The Russian overcame her American opponent 6-3 6-7 (3-7) 6-2 and will play either Serena Williams or Victoria Azarenka in this week's last four.

Sharapova is bidding for her sixth grand slam and the first since her victory over Simona Halep in last year's French Open final.

The 28 year-old's only Wimbledon title to date arrived back in 2004 when she shocked Serena Williams less than three months after celebrating her 17th birthday.

Novak Djokovic has booked his place in the Wimbledon quarter-finals after completing his comeback against Kevin Anderson.

World number one Djokovic won the match 6-7 (6-8) 6-7 (6-8) 6-1 6-4 7-5 to book his place in Wednesday's last eight against Marin Cilic.

The reigning champion had fallen two sets behind against the big-serving South African, but levelled the fourth-round match when fading light brought play to a halt on Monday evening.

When play resumed today, the final set went with serve until Djokovic broke at 5-5, and the Serbian held on to win the deciding set 7-5.
