Federer makes Wimbledon semifinals for 12th time

Federer makes Wimbledon semifinals for 12th time

Both of them are two-time champions at the All England Club, and both of them are now out of the tournament.

Regarding the other six players still in the draw, Hewitt believes Croatia's Marin Cilic also has a chance to win the title and add to his U.S Open triumph of 2014.

With his scheduling problem now out of the way and a three-set match in the books, Djokovic can turn his focus to Berdych. Oh, sure. The "all-time great male players" still predominate his worries.

"To be honest, I enjoy watching more men's tennis", she said. I kept doing everything with my physiotherapist, and physiotherapist of ATP, what we possibly could to try to recover it and get it into the state where I'm actually able to perform.

The veteran suggested starting play on the two main show courts before 1:00pm could get another women's match on the bill.

However, after twice moving a mini-break ahead, the underdog was guilty of a succession of errors and Djokovic let out multiple roars of delight after taking his second set point with a powerful serve out wide. He stepped a little farther behind the baseline to give himself more time to react.

Roger Federer's path to his eighth Wimbledon title just became clearer with the two players seeded ahead of him falling out.

Also rekindling their history in the quarterfinals will be Federer, a seven-time Wimbledon champion, and Milos Raonic, who will meet for the third time in four years.

Adrian Mannarino stretches for a return during his loss to Novak Djokovic. Obviously, he's been around many years.

"I never said I not going to come back". "Still a huge match in front of me and in front of Roger, as well". Djokovic at the time described the decision to move his match as the "wrong decision".

The Serbian superstar had to wait until Tuesday to play Adrian Mannarino in the Round of 16 after Gilles Muller's marathon win over Rafael Nadal.

"I've been feeling better on the court in the last couple of months". I just tried to gather my thoughts and work hard.

Thanks to Muller's victory on Monday, Cilic won't have to worry about the "Nadal effect" in his next match against the 24th-seeded Querrey.

'Already you see fans struggling to get into Number One and Centre for the 1pm start of play, ' he explained.

While it seems odd for one of the world's biggest sports events to take a day off in the middle of competition, there is a good rationale for the schedule and a reward for the restraint.

Serena's absence from the running has granted elder sister Venus the licence needed to make Wimbledon's last four for the second year running, which is incredible considering she failed to advance past the fourth round in four of the five tournaments prior to 2016.

Djokovic said the conditions were not risky, but the uneven surface could cause unpredictable bounces and affect the outcome of points and even matches.
