That record now belongs to American Arthur Ashe who won as a 31-year-old in 1975.

The evergreen 35-year-old is on a seven-match winning streak against Berdych, who has not beaten him since 2013, and the Swiss has yet to drop a set at this year's championships.

"Sam likes the conditions here".

The first serve of Federer vs Raonic is more likely to be around 3.30pm, based on our experience, but that's purely an educated guess. Goes for his shots.

"I can say with fact that I did everything I could to try to find a way to win", Raonic said. I could never play quite so freely previous year.

Berdych's approach to Wimbledon saw him compete in the Queen's Club Championship where he would make it through to the Quarter-Final before being knocked out by eventual victor Feliciano López. For his troubles, he now gets to take on Marin Cilic, the seventh seed, on Wednesday.

Roger Federer gets one step closer to his eighth Wimbledon title as he beat Milos Raonic in straight sets on Wednesday (July 12) 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (4) in the centre court, just moments after the home hero Andy Murray crashed out.

Querrey is the first American man in the semifinals of a Grand Slam since Andy Roddick finished runner-up at Wimbledon in 2009. I'm very touched, actually, to have so much support.

Cilic has looked the more impressive and I feel he can gain some serious ground in the rallies if he attacks Querrey's backhand.

Djokovic's departure leaves world No. 5 and seven-times champion Roger Federer as the highest remaining man in the draw following the loss earlier of top-seeded titleholder Andy Murray.

Raonic, runner-up to Murray previous year, is bidding to make the semi-finals for the third time.

After beating Milos Raonic in three sets on Wednesday he spared a thought for his 30-year-old rivals Murray and Djokovic.

Czech world number 15 Berdych, the 2010 Wimbledon runner-up, will face Roger Federer in the semi-final.

Second seeded Djokovic needed a medical timeout to treat a long-standing right shoulder injury in his last-16 clash with Adrian Mannarino.

Murray against Paire on Centre Court on Monday.

"It's the elbow. Over a year and a half it's been bothering me", Djokovic said after the match.

If the manner in which Murray struggled in the final two sets was a bit of an anti-climax, it had nothing on what went on at the No.1 Court a little while later, as Djokovic, after losing the first set and going down a break in the second to Tomas Berdych, retired hurt with an elbow injury. His well-rounded game has taken him deep into majors, including a win over Federer en route to the 2014 U.S. Open, and earlier today he polished off Gilles Muller, Rafael Nadal's glassy-eyed killer, in five sets.

The Luxembourg player's only other Grand Slam quarter-final came in 2008 when he lost to Federer at the US Open.

Wimbledon really needs to consider having a tiebreaker format like they use in the US Open for the last set if they don't want to spend the money to have lights on every court.

Djokovic felt sleighted. His fourth round match was delayed because Rafael Nadal's five-set defeat lasted almost five hours.
