Jerzy Janowicz wins a five-set contest against Jurgen Melzer to reach the quarter-finals of Wimbledon.

Poland's Jerzy Janowicz booked his place in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon this afternoon with a 3-6 7-6 6-4 4-6 6-4 victory over Jurgen Melzer.

Janowicz has been tipped to go deep at SW19 this year, but it appeared that he was heading for an early exit when Austrian Melzer claimed the opening set.

However, the Pole responded to win through 7-1 in a tie-breaker, before claiming a single break of serve to take the third set.

Melzer rallied again, though, and just one break of the Pole's serve meant that a deciding fifth set was required to determine a victor.

It went the way of Janowicz, who broke Melzer midway through to seal his route through to the last eight, where he will face either fellow countryman Lukasz Kubot or Adrian Mannarino.
