Wimbledon 2017: Federer waltzes into semifinals

Dimitrov, the 15th seed made the semi-finals of the Australian Open earlier this year and lasted nearly five hours against Rafael Nadal, so for Federer to serve at a high percentage, win a majority of net points and blast Dimitrov off the court is impressive to say the least. I don't feel ready to go.

It's a repeat of last year's Wimbledon semi-finals when big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic faces 18-time grand slam champion Roger Federer one stage earlier.

Effervescent Roger Federer moved serenely into the Wimbledon semi-finals a few weeks before his 36th birthday and then expressed his concern for two stricken rivals on Wednesday.

"I guess as much as you can say about sport, which is probably one of the least predictable things, but he has it within his grasp, let's say".

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

No. 1 Andy Murray also lost on Wednesday, falling to American Sam Querrey in five sets.

"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 or not enough", he explained.

In Minnesota, the Edina, Burnsville, Eden Prairie, Mankato, Maple Grove and Medford Gymboree locations will be closing. Gymboree, which also owns the insane 8 and Janie and Jack brands, filed for bankruptcy protection in June.

The London based tournament is his Favorite Grand Slam tournament.

The victor will face either 12-time major champion Novak Djokovic or the 11th seed Tomas Berdych while in the top half of the draw it is Andy Murray and Marin Cilic who are due to meet in the semis.

Raonic might have had the 140 miles per hour serve in his locker, but Federer owns a magic wand that he used to make the world's sixth best player look like a lumbering also-ran.

"Sometimes maybe the body and the mind do need a rest". I always hope to improve every year. I'm so happy to be through.

With Djokovic citing an elbow injury that's plagued him for more than a year and Murray struggling through hip pain, should the case, then, be made for both players to take much-needed timeouts of their own? Federer began the year by beating Nadal to win the Australian Open. I think it's definitely different ever since my injury.

Federer was untouchable in the first two sets, he lost just 6 points in 9 service games, never facing a break point, and he scored one break in the first and two more in the second set to take a 6-4 6-2 lead.
