Djokovic survives injury, blasts state of Centre Court

Djokovic survives injury, blasts state of Centre Court

As it stands, Federer will play 11th seed Tomas Berdych and seventh seed Cilic will play 23rd seed Querrey in the semi-final matches on Friday, July 14.

Defending champion Andy Murray is playing Sam Querrey on Centre Court, and Gilles Muller is facing Marin Cilic on No. 1 Court. Berdych had control of the first two sets and lost just two of 27 first serve points before Novak retired due to an elbow injury.

The No3 seed was sensational, winning 90% of his first-serve points, thumping 46 winners to nine unforced errors, and moving like a panther around the court.

There is no chance of a repeat final this year, though, after Murray, who was hampered by his hip injury, lost in five sets to Querrey.

"I don't think there should be a woman player, and there shouldn't be a female athlete, who isn't completely supportive of Andy Murray", she told ESPN. Berdych is 1-5 in his career in grand slam semifinal appearances.

Roger Federer did just that after undergoing knee surgery past year, and the decision looks to be a wise one as he closes in on yet another Wimbledon title.

"You wish them well right away as a rival to them and a friend", Federer said. Actually, I started feeling it already more or less at the beginning of the tournament.

Roger Federer is the last of the so-called Big 4 still standing at Wimbledon.

"I'm still in a little bit of shock myself", Querrey said.

Having not beaten Cilic in four meetings in the past, the big-serving American will have to step up if he needs to make it to the Grand Slam final for the first time in his career. "He was doing great things to keep pressure on me all the time". "I tried to get it in the condition where I was able to play".

After Murray hit two poorly executed drop shots when leading by a set and 4-3 in the second set, Querrey sprung to life, often striking deep returns and rushing to the net in a masterful all-round display.

Federer closed out the set in ideal fashion with an ace, his fifth of the set as his superior all-court game was clear to see.

It will be the first all-American girls' final at Wimbledon since 1979, when Mary Lou Piatek beat Alysia Moulton.
