  1. Goodbye!

    Right then, we're heading into the Wimbledon night. Hope a chippy is still open in the Village.

    More importantly, we've had confirmation from the All England Club that Nadal v Djokovic will resume at 13:00 BST.

    See you again tomorrow. And don't you dare be late. Night!

    What a day it'll be tomorrow. Serena Williams going for history against Angelique Kerber in the women's final, plus the conclusion of this match, a men's doubles final and a women's doubles final as well. I'm not sure how they will cram that all onto Centre Court before 11pm.

  3. Post update

    The heavyweight clash between Nadal and Djokovic promised so much and, boy, it was worth the wait.

    Quality, drama, tension, floodlights... worth missing your train home for.

  4. Fantastic Friday?

    Boris Becker

    Three-time Wimbledon champion on BBC TV

    It has been one of the longest Fridays I can remember!

  5. Post update

    We've not had confirmation from the All England Club about tomorrow's plan, but the indication is this match will resume at 1pm.

    The women's final is scheduled for 2pm, although I'd be surprised if that starts on time. But we will see...

  6. Post update

    Wow, wow, WOW! What a day. What a night.

    Ready again to do it all again tomorrow?

    BBC Sport tennis commentator

    What wonderful Friday entertainment the Centre Court crowd have had.

    It's sheer class that Nadal can acknowledge the crowd given his disappointment after the tie-break.

  8. Play suspended

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (9-11) Djokovic

    They think it's all over... it is now. Wimbledon referee Andrew Jarrett comes onto court to tell the chair umpire to call last orders, boos from those fans on Centre.

    Novak Djokovic
  9. Game and third set

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-7 (9-11) Djokovic

    Got it! Djokovic scores a goal just before the break...

    The Serb pins Nadal back with a backhand and the Spaniard can only bat it back into the net.

  10. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (9-10) Djokovic

    Novak delight, Rafa fury. Nadal plays the wrong shot, Djoko whacks a winner past him. The Serb's first set point on his own serve...

  11. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (9-9) Djokovic

    Unbelievable. Even the best get tight, Novak hitting a cross-court forehand wide...

  12. Will this tie-break finish before the curfew?

    One minute before the 23:00 curfew...

    There's no way they will suspend this tie-break, surely?

  13. Djokovic set point

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (8-9) Djokovic

    Jelena looks up to the skies before her man delivers a second serve, Rafa gets the jitters and smacks one long... First set point to Novak...

  14. Djokovic saves set point again

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (8-8) Djokovic

    First serve in from Novak, Rafa clubs it long...

  15. Set point Nadal

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (8-7) Djokovic

    Groans of surprise as Rafa fluffs his lines on his first serve, two lets and one into the net. He's not worried... a drop shot shows his confidence, Novak can't quite reach it.

    Set point three... This time on Novak's serve...

    Rafael Nadal
  16. Djokovic saves set point

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (7-7) Djokovic

    Set point.. saved!! Djoko comes to the drop shot party, nailing his effort to leave Nadal scrambling unsuccessfully. Even Bjorn Borg laughs.

    Rafael Nadal
  17. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (7-6) Djokovic

    Another baseline battle... Nadal forehand... winner! Set point to the Spanish second seed... on his serve...

    Rafael Nadal
  18. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (6-6) Djokovic

    Hands on mouths everywhere. Rafa and Novak are the only calm people in the place. Although Rafa flashes a look of anguish after seeing a forehand go cross court and wide.

  19. What a point!

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (6-5) Djokovic

    Pat Cash

    Former Wimbledon champion on BBC Radio 5 live

    That must be the point of the Championships. That was phenomenal from Nadal.

  20. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (6-5) Djokovic

    Long rally, baseline to baseline, a reverse backhand pick-up from Novak... how did he do that? And then Nadal sees his chance and nails another drop shot winner. Centre on its feet!
