So Andy Murray survived a Centre Court thriller to reach the semi-finals of Wimbledon for the seventh time.
The world number two had cruised into the last eight but this time out he was taken the distance by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga before coming through 7-6 (12/10) 6-1 3-6 4-6 6-1 after three hours and 53 minutes.
But unfortunately for Murray fans, the timing of the match clashed with another important sporting event - the Wales v Portugal Euro 2016 semi-final.
With Murray playing pretty well at the start, fans thought the Scot looked like he was keen to wrap up the match. Maybe because of football?

However, after a while things slowed down a bit and it seemed the World Number 2 wasn't leaving Centre Court any time soon. And fans felt the pressure.

When the time for football approached, people were torn...

Which felt a bit like this:
But then Murray won just before half time in the football and order was restored.
