Marin Cilic will face Sam Querrey in the last four as Wimbledon welcomes some new faces in the semi-final stage.

The former US Open champion will now look to reach his first ever Wimbledon final, having already progressed the furthest ever at SW19.

Stuttering defending champion Andy Murray has been knocked out of Wimbledon by Sam Querrey after their quarterfinals clash ended 3-6 6-4 6-7 (4) 6-1 6-1 in favour of the big-serving American.

Djokovic had to quit quarter-finals against Tomas Berdych due to right elbow injury while he was trailing 7-6 (7/2), 2-0.

"As I move forward, I'll be very cautious of how much I will play, how much I think is healthy".

If there's an opponent that Federer will have to be careful, it would be Berdych.

Williams, 35, won her seventh Wimbledon title in 2016 but has skipped the tournament this year as she prepares to give birth to her first child next month. "You can't take that for granted", Cilic said.


On the other hand, Federer eased into the quarterfinals for the 15th time at Wimbledon, as he defeated Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov 6-4, 6-2, 6-4. "Probably the fact that I played yesterday, kind of days adding up, as I've said before, it wasn't helping at all".

"Then, of course, it's just discussions I always have, continuous discussion, with my wife about the family, about my kids, is everybody happy on tour, are we happy to pack up and go on tour for five, six, seven weeks". I always hope to improve every year.

The seemingly evergreen Swiss takes on 31-year-old Tomas Berdych on Centre Court tomorrow, after 29-year-old Sam Querrey has done battle with 28-year-old Marin Cilic in the first semi-final of the day.

Federer virtually bulldozed his way through the draw, beating tough grass court players in Grigor Dimitrov and Milos Raonic, and is yet to drop a set.

So yeah, anything is possible, but it would still be a massive surprise if Federer doesn't advance to his 11th Wimbledon final. "I tried to get it in the condition where I was able to play".

Cilic looks the most likely player left to trouble Federer, having taken the veteran to five sets and squandered two match points in their quarter-final here a year ago.
