RODGER FEDERER REACHES SEMI FINALS WITH VICTORY OVER MILOS RAONIC

Rodger Federer are in the semi finals after beating Canadian Milos Raonic 6-4 6-2 7-6 (7-4) on Centre Court.

The 35 year old is on course to win a record eighth Wimbledon title after putting up a masterclass performance to the amusement of all the fans at the Court.

Federer will play Tomas Berdych on Friday after he eased off to the semis when Djokovic retired with an elbow injury.

That was Federer’s 100th singles match at Wimbledon and won in straight sets as he extend his run of not losing a single set at Wimbledon 2017. The victory means he recorded his 89th win at the tournament and also reach a record 12th semi-final at SW19.

With Andy Murray losing to Sam Querrey on Centre Court, the Swiss is now the favourite to win the 2017 Wimbledon.

With the four semi finalists, Federer is the only of the ‘top four’ standing and has 18 Grand Slam titles to his name; his other competitors has just one between them with only Marin Cilic victory in the 2014 US Open.

When Federer was asked by BBC Sport if that puts more pressure on him, he said;

“I’m very happy that my body kept me going all these years. I hope that Novak’s OK with his injury.

“Rafa fought to the very end the other day and Andy also hasn’t been looking very good. I hope he and Novak will recover in time for the American summer but there are other good stories in the tournament.

“I predicted Marin Cilic could go very far this week and maybe it’s nice to see different guys in the finals”, he added.
