Seven-time champion Roger Federer made it to the semi-finals without dropping a single set. He stands two wins away from an eighth Wimbledon title. As Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic fell out of the quarter-final, Federer seems to be the favourite in the competition.
He responded to this by saying: "Being favourite or not the favourite doesn't matter."
The 35-year-old will play against the 2010 runner-up Tomas Berdych at the All England Club on Centre Court, where it will be his 12th semi-final. The eleventh seed, Berdych has not beaten Federer since 2013 and lost to Rafael Nadal in the 2010 Wimbledon final.
If Federer manages to beat Berdych, he will face either Sam Querrey or Marin Cilic in Sunday's final.
Aware of the physical threats posed by his three rivals, AFP cites Federer saying: "All three guys are taller and stronger than I am.
"I've got to figure out a different way, carve my way through somehow with my slice and my spins, my consistency.
"They've got big serves, big forehands, they are big hitters."
This third seed is ranked fifth in the world and is the second oldest semi-finalist after Ken Rosewall who finished runner-up in 1974 at the age of 39.
