Wimbledon: Men’s Singles semi-final line up drawn

Roger Federer AP

He also advanced to the quarters at this year's French Open and Australian Open but has not been able to reach the last four since the 2018 U.S. Open.

Swiss Federer, 37, and Spaniard Nadal, 33, play their tantalising semi-final second on Centre Court.

Djokovic's win-loss record in Grand Slams after winning the first two sets, following his quarterfinal victory.

The victor of Friday's Federer-Nadal semifinal, of course, will face one more hurdle before adding to his Grand Slam tally. He will play Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut, who despite being the 23rd seed has lost just one set in this year's tournament (15-1).

Goffin was on top in the early stages as he sensed the opportunity to become the first Belgian man to make the semi-finals at a Slam since Xavier Malisse at Wimbledon in 2002.

"Well", the 31-year-old Bautista Agut said, "it feels better to be here in London". His game looks in flawless nick and it will take something extra-special from the No 23 seed to stop the Serb from reaching the final for the sixth time.

"Don't ask me more questions about young tennis players - 'When is their time to come up?' - because we've talked about it", Djokovic told reporters Wednesday after breezing past Goffin. Nadal and Federer will play each other in Friday's semifinals.

Ramos penalized Williams for three separate on-court violations for illegal coaching, breaking her racket and verbal abuse. She continued, "I would love the chance to live that moment over again". "Okay.

Let's take a look at the betting history behind Nadal and Federer's 13 Grand Slam matches dating all the way back to their first showdown in 2005... But in that span, Federer and Nadal have become more complete, tactically sophisticated versions of their former selves.

The defending champion, going for a 16thmajor title, won 6-4, 6-0, 6-2 in just under 2-hours to go through to his ninth semifinal at the All England Club.

It was more of the same in the third as Federer found his range with a break for 4-3 before taking the set on a fourth set point.

JL: I'm sticking with my original pick from the beginning of the tournament: Roger Federer. Nadal is going to try to attack Fed's one hander, and the efficacy of that strategy will go a long way toward determining who wins this match.

"The beginning", Federer said, "was brutal". He joins Martina Navratilova (120, Wimbledon) and Chris Evert (101, US Open) on the list. And they played in idiosyncratic fashion even during the quarter-final; turning the contest into a baseline battle of attrition, the two men combined to take the net out of the equation with their deadly and accurate passing shots and lobs. The 21st-seeded Goffin, in fact, was the first seeded player he faced. He couldn't go much further that time, but he's steadily grown into an all-round force ever since, matching wits with the best players in all kinds of conditions.

DR: I'm with Stan-he's got to put pressure on Fed's service games.
