  1. 15:02 - Next up for the third seed will, of course, be the winner between Berdych and Federer - the match that continues here and over on Centre Court

  2. 6-2 - WINNER! Djokovic is safely through to the semi-finals, stepping inside the baseline and firing away a cross court forehand winner.

  3. 5-2 - Credit to Lu as he holds to 30 when Djokovic sends an attempted backhand down the line into the net. And Lu at least forces Djokovic to serve out this match

  4. 5-1 - A sixth love service game for Djokovic sees him consolidate the double break and Lu will have to serve to stay in this match now

  5. 14:50 - Don't forget that the winner of this match, which we can now fairly safely say will be Djokovic, will face either Federer or Berdych. But it is Berdych who leads that clash as he has just taken the third set 6-1 to lead by two sets to one and you can continue to follow that match LIVE in full by clicking here!

  6. 4-1 - BREAK! Lu saves a first break point with an unreturnable serve while a second goes begging when Djokovic's forehand volley lands just long of the baseline. He can't believe it as that was his easiest volley of the match and he just put too much on it. But Djokovic finally gets the double break on his third attempt when Lu hits a forehand into the net

  7. 3-1 - Djokovic holds to 15 when Lu slaps a forehand into the very bottom of the net after being over-powered by Djokovic on the baseline

  8. 2-1 - Lu holds to 15 to get off the mark in this third set as Djokovic tries a few exhibition type shots, like a topspin backhand lob from a couple of feet inside the baseline that drops well long

  9. 2-0 - Djokovic confidently holds to love, this is one of his best serving performances of the last year that's for sure. And that hold consolidates the early break in this third set

  10. 1-0 - BREAK! Djokovic gets off to the perfect start in this third set as he breaks to 15 with a cracking sliced backhand passing shot across court that he just drifts over the net and onto the line

  11. 6-2 - SET! Djokovic seals the second set from 30-30 with an ace wide to leave himself firmly in control of this match now. Two sets to love is a comfortable score for Djokovic today as Lu has never in his career come back from two sets to love down

  12. 14:23 - Over on Centre Court just a minute ago, Roger Federer took the second set 6-3 from Tomas Berdych to level up at one set apeice. And you can continue following that clash in full by clicking here!

  13. 5-2 - BREAK! Djokovic produces an absolutely unbelievable backhand get at the net when the ball is already behind him. And it lands just over the net for the perfect drop shot. Lu saves three break points - the first two with huge first serves and the third when Djokovic sends a backhand well wide. And he also saves a fourth from deuce with a 124mph ace out wide. But he can only send a cross court forehand wide on the fifth and Djokovic breaks to leave him serving for the second set

  14. 4-2 - Djokovic posts a battling service hold from deuce to consolidate the break in this second set. He looked like he was cruising towards the hold at 40-15 but a couple of forehand errors let Lu back into it at deuce before the Serb could recover and hold with a huge first serve

  15. 3-2 - BREAK! Lu saves a first break point in this set with a great first serve that Djokovic can only hit into the net. But he quickly gives Djokovic a second chance at the break as Lu sends a mid-court backhand into the bottom of the net. And this time the Serb gets the break when Lu hits a forehand long

  16. 2-2 - Squeals of delight from the crowd as Djokovic races up to a very good drop shot from Lu and whips an angled cross court forehand away for a winner that lands smack on the outside of the line!

  17. 1-2 - All credit to Lu as he still looks like he believes in himself enough to turn this around, rather than dropping his head, and the Taiwanese player goes on to hold with a forehand winner to keep his nose in front in this set

  18. 1-1 - Djokovic, who has had a lot of trouble with his serve in the last 12 or so months, is serving like an absolute dream today and quickly levels up to love

  19. 0-1 - Lu holds for the opening game of the second set as Djokovic sends a frustrated backhand return into the net from out wide. The Serb got to 30-30 in that game and just looked at the end like he was forcing things a little too much as he aimed to get the early break in this set

  20. 13:48 - Over on Centre Court, 12th seed Tomas Berdych has taken the first set 6-4 from defending champion Roger Federer. The winner of that clash will face the winner of this match in Friday's semi-finals. You can follow that match LIVE in full by clicking here!

  21. 6-3 - SET! A very comfortable service hold from Djokovic once again as he serves out the set to love, when Lu sends a off-balance forehand into the middle of the net

  22. 5-3 - Lu posts a love service hold, culminating in a big first serve out wide and change-of-direction backhand winner down the line, to force Djokovic to serve out this set

  23. 5-2 - Djokovic races through a love service hold with an unreturnable first serve. That consolidates the break and will leave Lu serving to stay in this first set after the change of ends

  24. 4-2 - BREAK! Djokovic easily gets up to a shorter ball from Lu, runs around it and fires the resulting forehand into the open court for a winner. That hands the Serb another two break points ... And this time he gets it at the first attempt when Lu's forehand drops about a foot long of the baseline after a lengthy rally

  25. 3-2 - Lu does brilliantly well to get to a vicious Djokovic backhand across court that lands right into the corner of the court. But his backhand return goes just wide down the line and Djokovic has another hold, this time to 30, to remain just in front

  26. 2-2 - Lu dumps an off-balance backhand into the bottom of the net to hand Djokovic two points for an early break. The first goes begging as the Serb unleashes a huge forehand and thumps it straight into the net. Lu saves the second with a great backhand approach shot down the line that turns out to be a winner. And Lu goes on to hold with a great first serve down the centre of the court that Djokovic can only return into the net

  27. 2-1 - Djokovic has made a confident start to this match, and why shouldn't he? He is the overwhelming favourite to come through this tie and he holds once again, this time to 15, coming into the net before whipping away a forehand across court and onto the sideline at an angle

  28. 1-1 - Djokovic sends a forehand return of serve well long of the baseline to let Lu off the hook at 30-30 and the Taiwanese player goes on to hold without dropping another point when Djokovic hits a forehand into the net

  29. 1-0 - Djokovic holds to love, with a first serve out wide followed by a change-of-direction backhand winner than just curled in onto the line at the last minute. An impressive start from the former Australian Open winner

  30. 0-0 - Djokovic won the toss and opted to serve first so it will be the world number three to get this clash underway now that the players are ready ...

  31. 12:58 - His previous best Grand Slam result was a third round appearance at the Australian Open in 2009, when he lost to Tommy Robredo in straight sets. But of course he beat Andy Roddick in the fourth round two days ago so he will be riding high in confidence - to have a read of what he thinks about today's match click here!

  32. 12:54 - However, Lu is a different prospect altogether - comparatively speaking coming out of nowhere to reach the quarter-final stage of this year's Wimbledon. So here's a big of info for you - he's from Chinese Taipei, also known as Taiwan, and he is currently ranked 82 in the world although that will rise considerably when the new rankings lists comes out on Monday

  33. 12:53 - By now you should all know a fair amount about Novak Djokovic so we're not going to focus on him too much just now

  34. 12:51 - These two have never faced each other before so expect the early stages of their clash to include a fair amount of the two of them testing each other out
