Andy Murray survived a tension-soaked finish to his third-round Wimbledon clash with Marcos Baghdatis to beat the Cypriot as well as the clock and wrap up a 7-5 3-6 7-5 6-1 win.

Murray had to get the match wrapped up before the 2300 local time (10am today, NZ time) deadline or he would have been forced to come back on Monday to finish it.

After securing a double break in the fourth set, the fourth seed eventually finished off his opponent at 2302 local time.

He had not had it all his own way, however, and struggled to get into gear, dropping the second set before romping away to set up a fourth-round clash with Croatian Marin Cilic.
