Arm injury ends Djokovic's run at Wimbledon

"I know how much it means to guys to play on Centre Court and I get to play the final here".

The second seed needed treatment on his long-standing right shoulder injury during his 6-2, 7-6 (7/5), 6-4 win over France's Adrian Mannarino.

"I told the chair umpire that there was a hole in the middle of the court on the service line". The grass-court season was hard because of the back issues I had, and the knee issues.

Federer said he had learned to manage his body - citing last year's French Open when he arrived at Roland Garros struggling with knee and back injuries and made a decision to pull out of the tournament before it began. I am sure the groundsmen are the best in the world, but grass is the most complex surface to maintain. Federer's serve, return and shotmaking ability has all been on point, not to mention he's played the fewest tennis possible to get to this point.

Together, the four semi-finalists have an average age of 31 - the first time the final four in the men's competition has exceeded 30 this century and the oldest set of semi-finalists since 1970.

He had already summoned the doctor after just three games of the opening set.

"I'm just thrilled right now".

Berdych will face Federer next after the great Swiss crushed sixth seed Milos Raonic 6-4 6-2 7-6 (7-4) to sail into a record 12th Wimbledon semi-final without dropping a set in five matches.

Querrey, seeded 24th, and seventh seed Cilic are among the most prolific ace masters in the tournament, having fired down 126 and 105 respectively on their way to the last four. Querrey has also lost to Cilic in three sets at Queen's and five sets at Wimbledon in 2009.

Federer closed out the set in ideal fashion with an ace, his fifth of the set as his superior all-court game was clear to see. I have a lot of respect for him doing that.

I think an extremely important part is to be mentally fresh, mentally ready.

After losing to Raonic in the Wimbledon semi-finals previous year, Federer shut down his season to rest a knee injury which had already required surgery earlier in 2016.

"He beat me here in 2010". And Federer presents the biggest hurdle of them all on Friday.
