Show your support for Andy Murray at the Big Screen!

Edinburgh's Festival Square is tennis-tastic today, with both Wimbledon men's semi-final matches broadcast live and the chance to practise your serve at a temporary tennis court.

Councillor Steve Cardownie, Festivals and Events Champion for the City of Edinburgh Council, said: "As you'd expect in his home nation there's a huge amount of support in Edinburgh for Andy Murray and we know that people across the city will be cheering him on against Tsonga today. The Big Screen in Festival Square has been showing the whole of Wimbledon and we expect it to be a particularly big draw this afternoon and over the weekend. Tennis Scotland are setting up in the Square today as well, so there's even more reason to come down - not only can you experience the buzz of watching the tennis en masse in the open air, you can try your hand at playing the game into the bargain!"

Full coverage of the men's semi-final action from Wimbledon will be shown on the Big Screen in Festival Square - Scotland's only Olympic Live Site - from 1pm. Meanwhile, from 1-5pm, Edinburgh Leisure and Tennis Scotland will be inviting members of the public to come and try tennis for themselves and take part in a highest rally competition.
