- Briton comes from set down to lead fifth seed
- Match resumes on Friday at 6-7 (3), 7-6 (2), 6-4
Andy Murray has placed himself in a strong position as he chases his biggest win of the last six years by establishing a 6-7 (3), 7-6 (2), 6-4 lead against Stefanos Tsitsipas, the fifth seed, before their Wimbledon second round match was postponed at 10.40pm due to the 11pm curfew at the All England Club. Murray and Tsitsipas will return on Friday afternoon to complete their match with a place in the last 32 on the line.
While Murray waltzed to two grass-court challenger titles earlier this summer, Tsitsipas arrived at Wimbledon in curious form. Despite reaching the final of the Australian Open, seven months into the season he still has not won a title. His form was even worse on grass, where he compiled a dire 1-3 win-loss record before Wimbledon with two first-round defeats.
