Federer Comeback: Wimbledon 2016 Quarterfinals Results Day 10

LONDON, Sporting Alert – Results from men’s singles quarterfinal matches on Day 10 at Wimbledon 2016, Wednesday July 6.

Much of the highlight was surrounded around Roger Federer, who pulled off a remarkable comeback to book his place into the last four.

Federer started slowly and found himself trailing by two sets to No. 9 Marin Cilic of Croatia on Centre Court.

However, the No. 3 seeded seven-time Wimbledon champion rallied from the massive deficit, including fighting off three match points to get the better of Cilic, 6-7(4) 4-6 6-3 7-6(9) 6-3, in five sets and earned his semi-final spot.

Federer will next face Canada’s No. 6 seed Milos Raonic, who ended the surprising run of American No. 28 seed Sam Querrey, with a 6-4 7-5 5-7 6-4 result.

Unlike Federer, Raonic got off to brisk start – winning the opening two sets before wrapping things up in the fourth.

Querrey, who earlier in the tournament defeated No. 1 Novak Djokovic, won the third second to cut the deficit to 2-1.

However, Raonic went on to finish off the contest in the fourth set and setup a battle with Federer.

“I thought Milos played great today. I don’t think I played poorly at all,” said Querrey. “I knew he had a big serve, obviously, but I was really impressed with his net game.

“He really didn’t miss a volley today. He kept coming forward, kept the pressure on me, and I felt it.

“Kudos to him for playing a very good, clean match.”

No. 2 Andy Murray also advanced to semifinal at Wimbledon, following a hard fought 7-6(10) 6-1 3-6 4-6 6-1 win over France’s No. 12 seed 12 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Murray shot to a 2-0 lead in the match, but the Frenchman stormed back to win the next two sets to even things up at 2-2.

Murray then cruised to a 6-1 win in the fifth set to advance into the semis.

Also on Wednesday, the tenth-seeded Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic beat No. 32 Lucas Pouille of France 7-6(4) 6-3 6-2 in his quarterfinal.

Berdych and Murray will meet in one of two semifinal matches.
