Wimbledon doubles campaign over for Kiwi Michael Venus after gruelling quarter-final

13 July 2017

A year ago, Raonic beat Federer in the semi-final before losing to eventual champion Andy Murray in the final.

Roger Federer was in his elements as he defeated Milos Raonic 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (7-4) to advance to the semifinals of the Wimbledon 2017 Men's Singles.

Muller equaled his best Grand Slam performance by reaching the quarterfinals.

"100 matches, I can't believe it, that's a lot", said Federer, who is chasing a record eighth Wimbledon title.

"Once you hit 30, you've got to look back and think of how much tennis have I played, how much rest did I give my body over the years, how much training have I done, did I do enough, did I overdo it or not enough", he explained. It was a flawless setting.

Russia's Rosneft started to lift oil from Libya
The French bank cut its forecasts for Brent by $9 to $51 a barrel for 2017 and by $15 to $48 for 2018. US West Texas Intermediate crude futures were at $44.33 per barrel, up 10 cents, or 0.2 percent.

Federer rose to the occasion on a day that saw both defending champion Andy Murray lose to Sam Querrey while Novak Djokovic retired due to an arm injury against Tomas Berdych.

Entering Friday's semifinal, the 17-time Grand Slam champ is the only top-five seed remaining in the tournament and he is six years older than Berdych, the next-oldest semifinalist. I always hope to improve every year. Murray wasn't looking good with his injury. "It's nice to see different guys, maybe".

"I think he's just in better position". Among these, Roger Federer won nine matches whereas Milos Raonic won three matches.

Raonic came through an early scare in the first set after saving a break point at 1-1, but Federer made no mistake at 2-2 before taking command of the set by holding serve to love. Federer often aimed his passing shots at Raonic's body or low at his feet to keep the tall Canadian off-balance.

Raonic took the first set of that match, but lost the next two. Cilic won 17-15 in the fifth set. But Federer simply refused to be broken and the set went to a tie-break. This time around, Federer is yet to drop a set and has just had a number of months off, so fatigue shouldn't be an issue.

Ms Yates said there are seven doctors specialised in Charlie's condition who back their request for the experimental treatment. The application came after both Pope Francis and President Donald Trump brought worldwide attention to the case.

At the end of his news conference, speaking in Serbian and translated through an interpreter, Djokovic alluded to the possibility that he could take a long break.

Usually when a player is taking the kind of beating Federer was handing out on a sunlit Centre Court, the crowd throw their weight behind the underdog.

When he responded with two majestic forehands, one apparently defying physics as it curled around the net post, they were in raptures in the stands and former great Rod Laver smiled in admiration from the Royal Box. Getting back on level terms, Federer then finally mesmerized the crowd with this forehand victor that curled in onto the line - giving him a 5-3 lead.
