>> Milos Raonic, Roger Federer, Tomas Berdych, and Andy Murray all powering through to the men's singles semi-finals at Wimbledon. Murray in a dramatic win over Frenchmen Tsonga, while Federer staged an epic comeback against Marin Cilic. Reuters' Jonathan Green has been following the tournament.>> Yes, so Roger Federer against Milos Raonic, this is kind of the old dog against the young pretender in many ways.
Roger Federer, what can we say about him? He came through a tough five setter against Marin Cilic. He was two sets down. Saved three match points, but you can never write him off. Milos Raonic. He really is the man on forming grass. He got to the Queen's Final against Andy Murray.
A lot of people are tipping him as a future Grand Slam Champion, a man who can actually win multiple Grand Slam titles.
ll of course, now Andy Murray, he is the favorite to win this tournament after Djokovic's elimination, he has a sense of high hopes on his shoulders.
He came through a marathon match as well, beating in five sets. He was cruising at one point and then Tsonga fought back. Murray was seeing boxers. No way I'm losing this match. And he did, he came through. Now, he will face Tomas Berdych in the semifinals. Berdych, he's through his match against the Frenchman, so he has the advantage of actually having a day's extra rest on Murray.
The interesting thing with Berdych, since 2010, he's not really progressed in the way many people thought, they thought he would be a future Grand Slam champion. He hasn't got Grand Slam titles like Murray. Their careers have kind of gone in different directions. He doesn't have a bad head to head record against Murray here.
He's won 6 of 14 matches but Murray has won the last 4. And that includes their controversial Australian open semifinal in 2015. It was a bad beef between them and that came down to I think Dani Vallverdu being in Berdych's corner and not Murray's. Now Vallverdu was sacked by Berdych back in May.
He was hoping that Evan Lindahl would take over as coach. Evan Lindahl told him look, I'm not interested in a return to tennis, but Lindahl now is in Murray's corner. So perhaps again there will be a bit of animosity between the two men.
