Path to Another Wimbledon Title Clears for Roger Federer


Their last meeting was in the 2015 Citi Open in Washington where Cilic triumphed 7-6, 7-6. Ken Rosewall was 39 when he was the runner-up in 1974.

Djokovic lost a first-set tiebreak to Berdych and began experiencing real difficulty with his serve, before he made a decision to retire early into the second set, with the score at 6-7 (2-7) 0-2. They join Nick Kyrgios, Feliciano Lopez and Viktor Troicki as high-profile players to have their Wimbledon run cruelled by injury. Li is from Pennsylvania and she defeated Simona Waltert of Switzerland 7-6 (4), 6-1.

"I kind of felt like he pushed me around a little bit today", he said.

According to Becker, it should not be seen as the beginning of the end of his chances of winning another Grand Slam. Whitney Osuigwe beat Liu at the French Open last month.

Federer, bidding to reach an 11th final at Wimbledon, said, "I've got to figure out a different way, carve my way through somehow with my slice and my spins, my consistency". They are officially called boys' singles, girls' singles, boys' doubles and girls' doubles. Federer plays Tomas Berdych in the second semifinal, holding an 18-6 record against the 2010 finalist.

Defending champion and No. 1 seed Andy Murray was eliminated earlier Wednesday by 24th-seeded American Sam Querrey, 3-6, 6-4, 6-7, 6-1, 6-1.

He finished with 25 aces and won 88 per cent of the points on his first serve.

"When I won the U.S. Open, it just opened so many possibilities in my mind for the rest of my career". After all, he led the first-set tiebreak 4-1.

'Andy Murray may have lost, but nothing got past him post-match.' said the official Wimbledon Twitter account.

Djokovic needed treatment on his right shoulder after the fifth game of the third set and a medical timeout at 4-3 to treat the same problem.

Serena and Venus Williams, Coco Vandeweghe and Madison Keys - all American players - have reached Grand Slam semi-finals since 2009.

Cilic and Querrey, both 6-foot-6, rode the strength of their powerful serves.

After the woman was helped out of the stadium, Cilic was given a first serve.

Play in the men's semifinals at Wimbledon has started.

'I can't believe it's 100 matches, it's a lot but I'm very happy my body has kept me going all these years, ' said Federer, who will face Tomas Berdych in tomorrow's semi-final.

While Querrey moves on to tackle Croatian seventh seed for a place in the final, Murray is pondering his next move after literally limping out of the tournament.
