Federer Loses; Murray, Raonic to meet in final – Wimbledon Podcast Day 11 Review

roger federer loss wimbledon semifinal 2016

Canadian Milos Raonic won a spectacular five-set battle to reach his first Grand Slam final and ended Roger Federer’s hopes of an 8th Wimbledon title for another year, much to the disappointment of fans of the former champion. The big-serving #6 seed won 6-3 6-7 4-6 7-5 6-3 to become the first Canadian man to reach a Grand Slam final. It was the first time that Federer was beaten in eleven Wimbledon semi-finals.

The following mens’ singles semifinal was between Britain’s Andy Murray and Czech Republic’s Tomas Berdych and the home favourite did not crumble under the expectations, as he went on to win in straight sets 6-3 6-3 6-3. He is only one win away from repeating his 2013 triumph and winning his third Grand Slam title (US Open 2012 being his first).

In the doubles’ competition, the Williams sisters have advanced to the final of the womens’ doubles, after defeating the pair of Julia Gorges and Karolina Pliskova 7-6 6-4. They will be facing Timea Babos and Yaroslava Shvedova, who won their semifinal against Raquel Atawo and Abigail Michal Spears 6-4 6-2.
