Where to Watch Live

The match is set to start at 10.30am BST. Live coverage of the game will be on Sky Sports 3 and Sky Sports 3 HD.


Both parties have braved massive odds to reach this stage, with Monfils getting the better of World Number 2 Roger Federer and Dimitrov crashing out Stan Wawrinka to set up what was an unlikely battle in the quarter finals.

Defending Champion Wawrinka was well below his usual standard in the game, with his service strewn with errors, which allowed Dimitrov to keep the momentum and complete a comprehensive straight set 6-1 6-2 victory over his more decorated rival. The Bulgarian was at his absolute best in the game and a double break in the opening set had put Wawrinka under massive pressure.

Meanwhile, Monfils was not to be left behind as he got the better of Federer again in straight sets 6-4 7-6. The Frenchman, playing at home, was extremely motivated coming into the game and showed great strength and determination to overthrow Federer, who failed to come up with an answer.
