Federer, Murray win five-set thrillers – Wimbledon Podcast Day 9 Review


Centre Court at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club was lit up with some of the best tennis we have seen at the Championships so far, as both the scheduled mens’ singles quarterfinals turned out to be five-set thrillers.

Roger Federer seemed to be completely out of sorts against #9 seed Marin Cilic with two sets down, but the Swiss put up a stunning display in the next three sets and came back to win 6-7 4-6 6-3 7-6 6-3 and keep his (and his fans’) hopes alive for an 18th Grand Slam win.

#2 seed Andy Murray was also leading by two sets, but Jo-Wilfred Tsonga came out hard in the third and fourth set, showing why he regarded as one of the best in the world presently. In the final set, the Brit capitalised on two early break opportunities and went on to win the match 7-6 6-1 3-6 4-6 6-1, to enter his 7th semi-final at Wimbledon.

In the other quarterfinals, Milos Raonic overcame American Sam Querrey 6-4 7-5 5-7 6-4 and will play Roger Federer in the semifinal and Tomas Berdych had an easier outing against France’s Lucas Pouille as the 2010 Wimbledon runner-up won in straight sets 7-6 6-3 6-2.
