Welcome back to Wimbledon and what a story has unfolded here this

:00:46.:00:51.

afternoon. Outstanding performance from the British number one, Jo

:00:52.:00:55.

Konta who came back from one set down to defeat the world number two

:00:56.:00:58.

Simona Halep under the roof on Centre Court. A scream from a

:00:59.:01:03.

spectator put off both players on match point but the point stood and

:01:04.:01:11.

Jo was announced the winner. Even when it got tight, Jo kept to her

:01:12.:01:15.

game plan and has got a place in the Wimbledon semifinal. Incredible

:01:16.:01:20.

match from start to finish and the crowd loved it, standing ovation for

:01:21.:01:25.

both players, richly deserved. This young lady, we have a new British

:01:26.:01:29.

superstar here at Wimbledon and we will look forward to her in the

:01:30.:01:36.

semifinal on Thursday. Billie Jean King, winner of 20 Wimbledon titles,

:01:37.:01:40.

you know what it's like to play that kind of match when it gets that

:01:41.:01:45.

tight, how impressed were you with Jo? Totally impressed, impressed

:01:46.:01:49.

with her whole story, from sticking to what she believed in and learning

:01:50.:01:54.

to be the best she can be. Jo is going to get better than she is now.

:01:55.:01:59.

She went out and she stayed decisive, she knew her game plan,

:02:00.:02:03.

she knew that she would miss more shots than Halep, don't get upset,

:02:04.:02:07.

hang in there and stay true to the game plan because she wasn't going

:02:08.:02:11.

to bring the other way, she had to be the aggressor. That's easier said

:02:12.:02:17.

than done. You have to be appropriately aggressive and being

:02:18.:02:20.

appropriately aggressive isn't easy because sometimes you get overly

:02:21.:02:26.

aggressive, you start making too many unforced errors. You must make

:02:27.:02:31.

more winners than unforced errors and that's what she did, 48 and 36.

:02:32.:02:39.

Halep probably wasn't going to have many unforced errors because she is

:02:40.:02:43.

more of a retriever. Such a delicate balance to do that and I thought Jo

:02:44.:02:49.

stayed the course, even when new could see people talking, I was in

:02:50.:02:53.

the lounge watching a bit and people said she was wobbling. She stayed

:02:54.:02:58.

with her game plan and in the end she knew that was how she was going

:02:59.:03:03.

to win and he did it in front of the greatest crowd. I'd just love

:03:04.:03:07.

playing here, I wish I'd been British! If you are British at

:03:08.:03:14.

Wimbledon, if you embrace the energy that people give you, and how much

:03:15.:03:20.

they love and want you to win, they haven't had doubles winners, so they

:03:21.:03:23.

are so appreciative when they finally have a great player, like

:03:24.:03:29.

they did in 77 with Virginia Wade and now this chance hopefully for

:03:30.:03:34.

Jo. I can't wait, I'm exhausted by watching that match. We all are.

:03:35.:03:40.

Talking about the stats, we knew that she had to accept she would

:03:41.:03:43.

make more unforced errors but she couldn't play Halep's game, she had

:03:44.:03:49.

to play her own. That is the rub, because it was such an even match.

:03:50.:03:55.

It was so tense, every game. Somebody would be ahead 30-0 and

:03:56.:04:01.

then it would be 30-30. That's what happens on grass. Jo said after the

:04:02.:04:06.

match in her interview, things happen so fast here. You work hard

:04:07.:04:12.

to get ahead in a match, so many times I felt bad that I had got

:04:13.:04:20.

ahead even 5-4 and all of a sudden I lost the set 7-5, what happened? It

:04:21.:04:25.

feels like it took forever to get ahead but takes no time to lose it.

:04:26.:04:31.

Well, she played so well. It has been a privilege to watch that last

:04:32.:04:36.

set with you. Hats off to Jo Konta, she deserved everything she has. We

:04:37.:04:41.

are heading straight out to Centre Court. Because of the rain the last

:04:42.:04:46.

remaining quarterfinal has been moved onto Centre Court, this is

:04:47.:04:57.

Vandeweghe against my Boruc over -- against Rybarikova. Let's go to

:04:58.:05:00.

Centre Court. COMMENTATOR: They will be crowding

:05:01.:05:35.

around their TV sets in the home city of Rybarikova. Ranked 87 in the

:05:36.:05:40.

world, although she has been ranked as high as 31. Two surgeries in the

:05:41.:05:47.

last year, to her wrist and her knee and she is on the verge of something

:05:48.:05:53.

enormous here. First ever Grand Slam quarterfinal, for the 2080 role. --

:05:54.:06:02.

28-year-old. What has she got right here, tactically? Using so much

:06:03.:06:08.

variety, she's so skilful. Very good mover. She is able to absorb the

:06:09.:06:18.

pace from Vandeweghe, different speeds, using different lengths as

:06:19.:06:27.

well. This is where Vandeweghe has got to calm down here, give herself

:06:28.:06:34.

more margin, remember that Rybarikova may be nervous, trying to

:06:35.:06:38.

cross the finish line. Got to earn it.

:06:39.:06:46.

Whoa. 25th error from her and it looks like Rybarikova, unseeded,

:06:47.:06:55.

will join the semifinal line-up at the modern. -- at Wimbledon.

:06:56.:07:07.

So, Tracy, what has been up with Coco because she was broken in her

:07:08.:07:18.

opening service game and she hasn't recovered. I wonder if she's feeling

:07:19.:07:24.

so much pressure because of the opportunity, because she is a former

:07:25.:07:27.

quarterfinalist here, grass being her favourite surface. She has been

:07:28.:07:33.

the favourite in each match she has played and she was the favourite

:07:34.:07:37.

here. Rybarikova, 87 in the world, first-time major quarterfinalist and

:07:38.:07:45.

Coco missing by big margins today, she's just never looked comfortable.

:07:46.:07:51.

Rybarikova on the flip side, it looks like she's played multiple

:07:52.:07:54.

quarterfinals in majors, very calm and composed. Following her game

:07:55.:08:08.

plan beautifully. Three hours ago they came off the court in the rain,

:08:09.:08:13.

a court that had lost its hat, but now they are on the Centre Court

:08:14.:08:18.

which has got its hat on. Two different situations but it's

:08:19.:08:21.

Rybarikova who has handled it far better. Vandeweghe these days under

:08:22.:08:30.

the watchful eye of Pat Cash but he can only watch in some frustration

:08:31.:08:38.

as Vandeweghe, with the new balls, serving to stay in the last of these

:08:39.:08:39.

ladies quarterfinals. Just falling apart, serving 31% of

:08:40.:08:54.

first serves in. Rybarikova on the verge of becoming

:08:55.:09:33.

the first Slovak woman ever to make the Wimbledon semifinal. It was

:09:34.:09:39.

Sybil Cove last year who made the quarters. And to Covert back in 2002

:09:40.:09:43.

but none have reached the last four. The target. The forehand isn't quite

:09:44.:10:16.

as sure and steady, Rybarikova. Nothing really has gone right for

:10:17.:11:34.

Coco Vandeweghe. This is not the woman Uysal surging into the

:11:35.:11:40.

quarterfinals. -- we saw surging. Match point, Rybarikova.

:11:41.:11:54.

Those are the kind of points Pat Cash wants her to play, hit it with

:11:55.:12:05.

enough pace, give yourself margin, getting forced errors. Right now he

:12:06.:12:09.

would be happy with her just getting the ball in the court, in the

:12:10.:12:11.

rectangle. Margins. That was brave. Beautifully

:12:12.:12:52.

executed. The Centre Court has already seen

:12:53.:13:33.

one comeback today. I'm not sure if it has the energy for another. It is

:13:34.:13:37.

about two thirds full, many leaving after the contact Halep -- Konta

:13:38.:13:42.

Halep encounter. This has been a nightmare for Coco

:13:43.:14:20.

Vandeweghe. Not what she dreamt of when she went to bed last night.

:14:21.:14:26.

Third chance to close, for Rybarikova.

:14:27.:15:09.

Starting to serve better. Just had to let out the tension.

:15:10.:15:54.

Vandeweghe flooring off the shackles. -- throwing off. Amazing

:15:55.:16:05.

what they view first serves will do for your confidence. -- what a few

:16:06.:16:12.

first serves. Getting ahead in the point.

:16:13.:16:32.

Nice to get the first point when you're trying to serve for any

:16:33.:16:40.

match, let alone a match of this significance.

:16:41.:17:02.

Miss Vandeweghe is challenging the call, the ball was called in.

:17:03.:17:17.

You hit it into the net. That's absolute baloney. He called it

:17:18.:17:38.

before I hit it, I was standing at the ball. In my opinion it hit the

:17:39.:17:48.

net. If he says it at the same time it is a distraction on the play.

:17:49.:17:52.

Have you ever played tennis, if somebody calls out when you are in

:17:53.:18:01.

motion, that a distraction. It it only isn't a distraction if the ball

:18:02.:18:05.

has left the racket. Saying it in the middle of my hit. How does it

:18:06.:18:14.

not affect the play, when I am in the swing? I mean, what are you

:18:15.:18:18.

talking about? I am being serious, what are you talking about? I am in

:18:19.:18:26.

play. I mean, you're out of line, totally wrong. How are you that

:18:27.:18:33.

wrong? You're unbelievable. In my opinion, Kelly Thompson really

:18:34.:18:36.

buried herself when she said you are in the middle of play when it was

:18:37.:18:46.

called out. Out. Miss Vandeweghe is challenging the ball on the left

:18:47.:18:49.

baseline, the ball was called in. Very close, wasn't it? It was close.

:18:50.:18:58.

Benefit of the doubt for Coco there? Whatever, it is 30-0.

:18:59.:19:13.

Pretty much summed up Vandeweghe's afternoon and evening. Rybarikova

:19:14.:19:23.

has been so poised throughout her first ever Grand Slam quarterfinal.

:19:24.:19:25.

She's got three more match points. It is a Slovak surprise. The

:19:26.:19:56.

unseeded Magdalena Rybarikova is through to the Wimbledon semifinal.

:19:57.:20:08.

The fairy tale continues. This is a woman who hadn't won, two surgeries

:20:09.:20:17.

last year, and was outside the top 400 as recently as March this year.

:20:18.:20:24.

Coming to Wimbledon, her preparation wasn't the Gold tour, it was

:20:25.:20:33.

Elkington and elsewhere, winning both tournaments and now she finds

:20:34.:20:38.

herself in a Wimbledon semifinal. For Vandeweghe, Tracey, just under

:20:39.:20:43.

pressure, didn't deliver, utter devastation. 30 unforced errors

:20:44.:20:51.

compared to just eight, four Rybarikova. Rybarikova just handled

:20:52.:20:56.

the situation so much better, staying calm and composed, really

:20:57.:21:04.

executing a terrific game plan. Vandeweghe, very rattled. Look at

:21:05.:21:09.

the little smile, she can't believe it. I'm afraid you're going to have

:21:10.:21:17.

two, Magdalena. You've got the 14th seed, Muguruza and a date on Centre

:21:18.:21:21.

Court, Thursday afternoon. First ever Slovak woman to make a

:21:22.:21:31.

Wimbledon women's semifinal. What a week for Rybarikova, she couldn't

:21:32.:21:34.

have believed it last year, sitting on her sofa at home, her wrist in

:21:35.:21:39.

plaster, her knee up on a chair. Couldn't have imagined playing

:21:40.:21:45.

tennis like this but it always brings up fairy tales and this is a

:21:46.:21:49.

very special one. In the end, it was routine. Straight sets, 6-3, 6-3.

:21:50.:22:03.

One hour and 14 minutes. It was a dream quarterfinal. Let's speak to

:22:04.:22:10.

Magdalena. Congratulations, first Slovak woman to appear in a

:22:11.:22:13.

Wimbledon semifinal. Can you put this into words? No, can't believe

:22:14.:22:19.

it, really can't believe it. I would have never believed I could be in a

:22:20.:22:25.

semifinal before this tournament. I am really speechless right now. So

:22:26.:22:30.

happy and grateful. The contrast in emotions from now on to this time

:22:31.:22:35.

last year, you were out for seven months, dropping to 400 in the world

:22:36.:22:38.

rankings as recently as March and now you are a semifinalist at

:22:39.:22:41.

Wimbledon, playing the tennis of your life. It was a very difficult

:22:42.:22:47.

time and I was sad about it. I had a tough time and right now, I'm here.

:22:48.:22:53.

Everything paid off, my rehabilitation, my work. The people

:22:54.:23:00.

behind that, it is incredible. I'm sorry, I am so happy, I am really

:23:01.:23:05.

speechless. You've created history, you deserve to be. You had wins in

:23:06.:23:10.

Surbiton and Ilkley at the lower level but this is a different level,

:23:11.:23:16.

this is Wimbledon. How have you kept it together, keeping so calm and

:23:17.:23:20.

progressing so impressively? I was afraid because I have only played

:23:21.:23:24.

smaller tournaments and I didn't know how I would play here. I've

:23:25.:23:29.

played in the semifinal at Nottingham, beating good players but

:23:30.:23:32.

this is Wimbledon and I couldn't have expected to play like this.

:23:33.:23:39.

Beating Coco 6-3, 6-3, which is amazing for me. I was glad I was

:23:40.:23:43.

focused, even changing court and here I am. It does not get any

:23:44.:23:48.

easier, Muguruza coming in the semifinal but the way you are

:23:49.:23:53.

playing, surely you fear no one? I played her grass and won a few years

:23:54.:23:56.

ago but it will be a different class, she impressed me a lot,

:23:57.:24:02.

playing really well and it will be really tough. I am not the

:24:03.:24:06.

favourite. I hope I enjoyed the match. The words Magdalena

:24:07.:24:15.

Rybarikova, Wimbledon semifinalist, can you believe it? No, I will have

:24:16.:24:20.

to sleep on it. Congratulations again, well done. Amazing story,

:24:21.:24:25.

with all of the injuries, coming back to the tour in February and now

:24:26.:24:29.

she is in the last four at Wimbledon. We have a few minutes

:24:30.:24:37.

left, Clare will be here in Today at Wimbledon soon. We will show the

:24:38.:24:40.

conclusion of a match that took place on Court Two and our chance to

:24:41.:24:45.

look at Jamie Murray, his partner in the mixed doubles, Martina Hingis,

:24:46.:24:58.

facing Hradecka and Jebavy of the Czech Republic. Murray and Hingis

:24:59.:25:03.

taking the first sets. Jebavy is difficult to predict,

:25:04.:25:49.

isn't he? Some awkward shots, but you saw there, wonderful touch.

:25:50.:25:56.

We've seen it all in one game. We mentioned it, you know, the loose

:25:57.:25:59.

shots on the easy balls, you think he should make and then this

:26:00.:26:05.

beautiful shot, crosscourt, nice touch, enough underspend. Not an

:26:06.:26:10.

easy shot to hit. They are the kind of shots, when you watch doubles and

:26:11.:26:17.

mixed doubles, I think the crowd enjoy the variety, finding different

:26:18.:26:22.

angles, it isn't all about power. You need variety. A match that

:26:23.:26:36.

started over three hours ago but we had two rain delays. Here is Jamie

:26:37.:26:43.

Murray to try and get him self and Martina through to the

:26:44.:26:44.

quarterfinals. Hingis and Murray and the net, their

:26:45.:27:45.

hands are too good. If you hit it flat and hard and then, this is what

:27:46.:27:49.

happens. Look at the technique on the backhand volley from Hingis and

:27:50.:27:52.

there is the winner from Murray. Nice touch.

:27:53.:28:08.

Talking of touch, how about that? That's how good he is at the net. A

:28:09.:28:19.

good half-volley followed up by another beautiful shot. Judy quite

:28:20.:28:26.

like that as well. There is the half-volley, and there is the angle

:28:27.:28:30.

on the next one. Look how he was always looking to move forwards.

:28:31.:28:33.

That wouldn't have gone over if he didn't do that. Three match points.

:28:34.:28:39.

Away it goes and they are through to the last eight.

:28:40.:28:47.

A really enjoyable match. It has gone according to form. Their first

:28:48.:28:56.

two matches together, Murray and Hingis, two from two and they

:28:57.:28:57.

haven't dropped a sets so far. I wonder where Carol Kirkwood had

:28:58.:29:13.

gone! That was earlier today, this is the weather now, it has moved in.

:29:14.:29:18.

Don't go anywhere because next we have Today at Wimbledon. Men's

:29:19.:29:23.

quarterfinal stage tomorrow, and Andy Murray is first on Centre

:29:24.:29:25.

Court.
