Federer Focusing on Winning Ninth Wimbledon Semi-Final

THE GUARDIAN – Before Roger Federer goes out to play Milos Raonic in the semi-finals at Wimbledon, he will discuss tactics, as usual, with his coach, Stefan Edberg.  And it is a pretty good bet that Edberg will remind Federer of what happened to him at the same stage in 1991, when the Swede was beaten by Michael Stich in four sets, without ever losing his serve.

It is a warning the 32-year-old Federer will probably not need, for he knows the threat that the big-serving Raonic can present, having played him four times. Though the Swiss has won all four, the last three all went to a decider and in the two years since they last met Raonic has broken into the top 10. This year he seems to have added belief to a game already perfectlysuited to grass and his serve is a huge threat.
