Berdych faces 'greatest of them all' Federer in last four

Shakira was right, hips don't lie.

Roger Federer maintained his bid for a record eighth Wimbledon title as he moved into the last four with a 6-4 6-2 7-6 (7-4) win against Milos Raonic. But this wasn't the Andy Murray who was the kingpin in guiding the Great Britain Davis Cup to victory or the Andy Murray of last Wimbledon.

Querrey, seeded 24th at the All England Club, twice recovered from a set down to advance 3-6 6-4 6-7 (4-7) 6-1 6-1 and reach the first grand slam semi-final of his career.

"I'm still in shock myself", he said after setting up a semi-final encounter with Marin Cilic. That quartet has combined to win each of the past 14 Wimbledon titles.

But on Centre Court against the 6ft 6in Querrey, it was apparent Murray was troubled.

Adny Murray "It's a boom time in British tennis", said Lloyd.

During his post-match press conference, Murray corrected what has been termed the reporter's "casual sexism". It was similar to last year, honestly. "There's an opportunity there, so I'm sad that it's over".

Querrey is the first American man in the semi-finals of a Grand Slam since Andy Roddick finished runner-up at Wimbledon in 2009.

Seven-time champion Roger Federer needed just under two hours to see off Canadian Milos Raonic 6-4 6-2 7-6 (4) to set up a final four meeting with 11th seed Berdych. She missed the second half of last season after wrist and knee operations, and her ranking fell out of the top 400. I gave everything I had. He's looking to be aggressive. Instead, Rafael Nadal was out-dueled in a fourth-round thriller, and Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic sputtered to quarterfinals losses in part because of injuries. Murray had to skip some practice sessions and pull out of a couple of planned exhibition matches before Wimbledon.

The other semifinal will be Garbine Muguruza of Spain against 87th-ranked Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia. Murray promptly replied, "Well, to defend the singles title". Well, that's only if you ignore the dominance of the Williams sisters, Serena and Venus, or just dismiss women's tennis altogether. His face was contorted in obvious discomfort late in the match, including at one point in the fifth set when he bit the knuckle on his index finger. It wasn't like I was a million miles away from winning but the end was obviously a bit of a struggle.

The result means Berdych, 31, has reached the semi-finals for the second year running.

"But, having seen the other two do that, it might be something he considers".

"So I consider it if one person does it it's a bonus".

"Really proud. It's an exciting moment".

The journalist replied: "Beg your pardon?"

He has won every set he's played this fortnight, the only semifinalist who can make that claim.

Cilic has also never been this far, at Wimbledon at least.
