New Delhi:

It was yet another dominating performance by Roger Federer when he defeated Milos Raonic in straight sets to march into the semi-finals of Wimbledon.

Federer defeated Raonic with the score of 6-4, 6-2 and 7-6. Federer will take on Tomas Berdych in the semi-final which will be his 12th at Wimbledon.

In another upset Berdych made it to the last four after his opponent Novak Djokovic was forced to retire due to a shoulder injury.

Earlier during the day, Sam Querrey sent hobbling defending champion Andy Murray crashing out of Wimbledon today, reaching his first Grand Slam semi-final at the 42nd attempt.

It seems to an extent that Federer now stands a great chance of winning the title as Djokovic, Nadal and Murray are out of Wimbledon.
