Wimbledon, England (Sports Network) - Three-time semifinalist Andy Murray and fifth-seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon, while American Andy Roddick crashed out of the tournament at the All England Lawn Tennis Club after falling to Spaniard David Ferrer on Saturday.
The fourth-seeded Murray beat Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus by a 7-5, 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 margin.
After spliting the first two sets, the players went to the locker room as the Centre Court roof was closed. Murray rallied to win the third set and was ahead 5-1 in the fourth just as the clock struck 11 p.m., which is the curfew time at Wimbledon.
But they let play continue, and Murray quickly closed out the match to prevent a Monday finish.
