Wimbledon: Roger Federer storms into semis after beating Milos Raonic

13 July 2017

Canadian sixth seed Raonic had knocked out Federer in the semi-finals in 2016, a defeat which led the Swiss superstar to shut down the rest of his season to rest a knee injury.

Shortly after Murray's loss, Djokovic retired from his quarter-final, trailing Tomas Berdych 7-6, 2-0, an injury to his right elbow limiting the power of his serve.

Federer also tells Haris how he too was a ball boy for two years and how he was also equally awestruck about the stars and fascinated by their equipment.

"I have to admit that I feel great physically in the second week of the tournament at Wimbledon and it was the goal when I took a break during the clay season".

It looks set to be one of the matches of the tournament, so shall we begin?

"But I tried. I tried what I could do from yesterday, to get it in the condition where I'm able to play".

Wimbledon: Murray out, Mueller out of gas
Murray was cruising at 6-1 but Querrey saved three set points before the Scot took it on the fourth, winning the tie-break 7-4. The final score still results in a convincing win for Murray though, with a 6-2, 4-6, 6-1, 7-5 victory ensuing.

"Am I surprised? Maybe a little bit. All the treatments and medication couldn't really help". He 8 out of the 12 break points he created and hit 70 winners. They will have their word to say on the outcome of the matches.

Murray, along with Roger Federer, was on Centre Court for his match against France's Benoit Paire on Monday and the world number one agreed the schedule should be more balanced. "Once you hit it on my end, I picked it".

"It's not a time and place for me to talk about the details. It's big for him to step out on court and give it a go, even though maybe knowing, like me a year ago, that chances are slim he was going to defend this title".

At 37, Venus Williams is hoping to become the oldest women's champion in the open era, but she will first have to overcome Britain's Johanna Konta, who is 11 years her junior.

Djokovic has endured a turbulent 12 months since becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four grand slams at the same time following his French title a year ago. Earlier this year, at the age of 35 years and 174 days, Federer won the Australian Open for Grand Slam title No. 18.

Federer is grateful to loyal fans at the All-England Tennis Club that have cheered him wholeheartedly for more than two decades.

"I've not had the most toughest matches". All three guys are taller and stronger than I am.

"Then the matches, I could never really play quite so freely previous year just because... I will have to find a way of responding to their attacks with clipped balls and balls-and-effect".

But there is nothing normal about what Federer's doing. For Muller, it was the second 5 setter in a row after that epic over Nadal, while Cilic finally lost a set at this Wimbledon.

"I'm just so, so happy to be in another semi here", he said.
