Path to Another Wimbledon Title Clears for Roger Federer

Querrey knocks out Murray Querrey knocks out Murray Sam Querrey returns to Andy Murray during their Men’s Singles Quarterfinal Match

Will history repeat itself this year?

Wimbledon's second Monday traditionally features every fourth-round match in the men's and women's singles, setting it apart from the other grand slams.

"I feel like I'm rested enough". Am I getting out of each week healthy.

"I was able to perform up to this stage".

When he responded with two majestic forehands, one apparently defying physics as it curled around the net post, they were in raptures in the stands and former great Rod Laver smiled in admiration from the Royal Box. I think our match was a very interesting match for the people to watch. For an athlete, especially in an individual sport, there is no way out. "There is no one to come instead of you".

"Andy, I hope by playing he didn't make things worse". "The scheduling has stayed the same on this day since I've been around". I'm not a pro but rather will talk with a few and comprehend what should be finished.

"Obviously short-term, it's probably rest is most appropriate".

This time a year ago, in the performance of his life, Milos Raonic defeated Roger Federer to advance to the Wimbledon finals - his first and only appearance in a major championship-deciding match.

Raonic entered the match having beaten Federer in last year's semifinal.

Federer next plays Tomas Berdych on Friday for a place in the final after the Czech world No.15 benefited from Novak Djokovic retiring injured midway through their quarter-final earlier on Wendnesday.


It would also take him to 19 career majors and make him the oldest champion at Wimbledon in the Open era.

Federer said the remaining three other players in the tournament are all tall, powerful hitters, requiring him to focus more on his technical skills. He then chose to sit out the clay-court season while his peers grinded on from mid-April through June. I was really lacking practice really.

"I was sort of moving on, let's see if he can do it again".

But there is nothing normal about what Federer's doing.

"Of course, I'm surprised to see them going out", Federer said after his quarterfinal win.

"I'm just so, so happy to be in another semi here", he said.

"Preparation-wise I believe in my own abilities".

As Federer put it after the match: "My dream run continues".

The 35-year-old will play Berdych, over whom he holds a seven-match winning streak, and joins Querrey and Croatia's Marin Cilic in the last four.
