LONDON -- Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had a nearly impossible act to follow Wednesday on Centre Court: Roger Federers improbable and electrifying comeback from two sets down to Marin Cilic.But then they staged their own mega-melodrama, going the thrilling five-set distance themselves. In the end, with darkness gathering, it was Murray who survived a spirited comeback by Tsonga and held on for a 7-6 (10), 6-1, 3-6, 4-6, 6-1 victory.The match ran a nerve-challenging 3 hours, 54 minutes.Murray next gets No. 10 seed Tomas Berdych, a straight-sets winner over Lucas Pouille. Murray has an 8-6 head-to-head record against Berdych but has won the past four matches, losing only one set.It was a great match, Murray said later, and the crowd were unbelievable. They got two pretty good matches, I think.Murray has dominated the No. 12-seeded Frenchman, winning 13 of their career 15 matches and 12 of 13 since 2009.Tsongas a pretty good player, Murray said, laughing, during his off-the-court interview with the BBC. Hes one of the greatest grass-court players in the world. He came up with some great shots. Credit to him for fighting his way back into the match.The only time the mens quarters at a major in the Open era featured two 0-2 comebacks was the 1998 Australian Open. If Tsonga hadnt run out of fuel, it might have happened again.Thus, Murrays quest for a second Wimbledon title remains intact. The 29-year-old is trying to become the first British man to win multiple Wimbledon titles since Fred Perry, who took consecutive titles from 1934 to 36.Before the recent Queens tournament, Murray was reunited with coach Ivan Lendl, an eight-time Grand Slam champion. Together, they have forged a 10-match winning streak, which includes the title in London and five wins here.Truth be told, Lendl appeared unbearably queasy over the last two sets.This will be Murrays seventh Wimbledon semifinal, equaling Novak Djokovic as well as Lendl, tied for sixth all time. There was another slice of history for Murray, too. The win gave him 51 at Wimbledon, tying the great Bjorn Borg.Tsonga, 31, came out firing in the first set. He had benefited from Richard Gasquets retirement after six games in their fourth-round match, giving him almost two days off. In the third round, he survived a 19-17 fifth set and defeated American John Isner.The first-set tiebreaker didnt approach the artistic level of the fourth-set sparkler earlier between Federer and Cilic, but there were more points. Murray fought off three sets points before converting his fourth set point with a sweet backhand volley into the open court.After losing the second set badly, Tsonga came back in the third. He started to find the rhythm on his serve and, finally, converted his third set point. After winning his first 14 sets here, Murray finally was on the losing end.And, in the final quarterfinal to be decided, Murray faced a battle for the first time here this fortnight.Murray got the first break of the fourth set, when Tsonga was serving at 2-3 and pushed a backhand long. Tsonga returned the favor, breaking Murray, who had held a seemingly commanding 4-2 lead. Murray made every effort to break back but Tsonga managed to save three break point and level the set at 4-all. Naturally, Tsonga broke back again and held serve to force a fifth frame.Today was a tough match, Murray said. It would have been very easy to get down on myself after the way the fourth set ended. You also have to be able to play good tennis in the big moments, and we both did that today.Murray, snarling at his box the entire way, raced out to a 5-0 lead and coasted home. An ace at 106 mph ended it.Both players looked exhausted as they tried to defer the honor of shaking the chair umpires hand first.The end of the fourth set was really tough, Murray said. I just tried to use all of my energy at the beginning of the fifth set to get up early and the crowd pumped up.So was the large crowd outside Court No. 1 on Murray Mound when the last shot was struck. Theyll be back on Friday hoping for a repeat performance. With No. 1 seed Djokovic out of the tournament, they are desperately pulling for their British champion. Cheap Hydro Flask .

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska opened up a 22-point lead in the first half, then watched South Dakota cut that lead to two before the Huskers were able to turn back the upset bid 73-61 on Saturday.I was really proud of our guys to perform down the stretch, said Nebraska coach Tim Miles. South Dakota competed really hard and really, I thought, out-competed us the second half. When you get punched in the mouth, you cant look at that and say `Oh gee, whats going on, do I have any teeth left? Youve just got to swallow them, spit the blood out and keep battling.Nebraska (5-3) hit 10 of its first 15 shots, 4 of 7 from 3-point range, while the Husker defense stifled South Dakota (6-4). The Coyotes hit just 2 of their first 11 shots and turned the ball over six times in the game-opening stretch that saw Nebraska lead 26-4 with 11:23 left in the first half.We looked like Edward Scissorhands out there for the first eight minutes or so -- a lot of turnovers, just driving in there and playing volleyball, throwing it up there and seeing what happened, said South Dakota coach Craig Smith We had to adjust and once we finally kind of settled in, I really liked we saw our of team. I thought we had great resolve. Im proud of how we played when we got down 22 in a hostile environment.Nebraska led 41-21 on Jack McVeighs 3-pointer with 2:53 left in the half, but the Huskers hit just one field goal and a pair of free throws the rest of the half and the Coyotes trailed 45-31 at halftime.The Huskers made 5 of 16 shots against South Dakotas zone defense to open the second half and turned the ball over eight times. Nebraska hit 33 percent of its shots in the second half.Credit to them, said Nebraska forward Michael Jacobsen. They definitely switched defenses and pressed and did some things that kind of got us on our heels and out of our attack mindset, which I thought was pretty good at the outset of the game.Credit to them, no doubt. They definitely switched defenses and pressed and did some things that kind of got us on our heels and out oof our attack mindset, which I thought was pretty good at the outset of the game.ddddddddddddrailing 56-42 in the second half, the Coyotes went on a 12-0 run, cutting the Husker lead to two on Matt Mooneys layup with 7:30 left. Nebraskas Tai Webster countered with a 3-pointer to push the lead back to five and McVeighs 3 with 2:45 left made it 67-58.McVeigh finished with 16 points and made 4 of 9 from behind the arc.McVeigh hit some big shots in the second half, Smith said. He got a groove going, exactly what he needed early on, hit three 3s in the first half and started feeling it. Then hit a couple big 3s in the second half when we were in the midst of a big-time run. Coach (Miles) has been upfront and honest about it, theyve got to make some threes that way.Webster scored 12 points with three 3s for Nebraska and Michael Jacobson added 11 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.BIG PICTURENebraska: Saturdays contest against South Dakota was a breather in the Huskers challenging pre-conference schedule. Nebraska played No. 11 UCLA the Friday after Thanksgiving, traveled to Clemson last week and will face No. 10 Creighton and No. 4 Kansas in its next two games.South Dakota: South Dakota, which has four players on its roster from the state of Nebraska, is off to its best start since joining NCAA Division 1 in 2008.POSTGAME COMEDYSmith was an assistant with Miles at four different schools, including Nebraska, before taking the South Dakota job two years ago. They did the postgame press conference together, turning it into a comedy act.I figured if we didnt do a joint press conference Id never get him out of here, Miles said opening the press conference.Im surprised you let me talk, Smith replied. In 11 years, I didnt say a whole lot.I had a lot of answers, Miles said.UP NEXTNebraska will host in-state rival Creighton WednesdaySouth Dakota will return to Vermillion to host Montana State Wednesday.
