Wimbledon: Federer Beats Raonic, To Face Berdych In Semis

Canada's Milos Raonic

Veteran Federer only looked in danger of being broken once, saving four break points in the eighth game of the third set as he reached his 42nd Grand Slam semi-final - extending his own record - in a dominant display.

But Raonic believes the seven-time Wimbledon mental refreshment is just as important - even though the physical side is much improved too. I don't feel ready to go.

Federer put in a near-perfect straight sets 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (4) win in his quarterfinal against No. 6 seed Milos Raonic to reach his 12th Wimbledon semifinal.

This was his 100th match at Wimbledon, and in a tournament that was supposed to herald the return of the game's "big four", only Federer is left standing in what will be his 12th Wimbledon semi-final. "I was really lacking practice, really", he said.

Roger Federer's quarter-final fixture would be Wednesday's second match on Centre Court.

Roger Federer brushed aside Milos Raonic as he comfortably avoided following Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic out of Wimbledon. Once you hit 30, you've got to look back and think of how much tennis have I played, how much rest did I give my body over the years, how much training have I done, did I do enough, did I overdo it?

Murray's loss and Djokovic's withdrawal means Federer is now the overwhelming favourite to secure what would be a 19th grand slam title.

On the opposite side of the draw, defending champion Andy Murray and French Open victor Rafael Nadal have already taken their leave, while an arm injury accounted for Novak Djokovic against Tomas Berdych on No. 1 Court just as Federer was closing in on victory. "Roger's been the best player I think this year, hands down, when he's been on court".

Small forward DeMarre Carroll and his huge cap figure will be shipped from the Raptors to the Nets in an interesting move. After four straight seasons on playoff teams, Carroll goes to the worst team in the National Basketball Association .

"Sometimes maybe the body and the mind do need a rest".

The 35-year-old Federer can identify with the physical woes of Djokovic and Murray, having gone through the same thing last year. Andy, I hope by playing he didn't make things worse. "But I'm happy that my dream run continues and we'll see what happens next". I think it's definitely different ever since my injury.

That's not to argue Nadal should have joined Federer on the sidelines; he's a dirt master who won three tournaments, including the French Open in Federer's absence, during those two months.
