Wimbledon semi-final excites Federer
Roger Federer has admitted he is looking forward to taking on world number one Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals at Wimbledon.
The Swiss star booked his place in the last four thanks to a 6-1 6-2 6-2 victory over Mikhail Youzhny on Wednesday, while Djokovic set up the mouth-watering semi-final with a 6-4 6-1 6-4 win over Florian Mayer. Federer was delighted to have avoided the potential banana skin against Youzhny and admitted he is eager to take on Djokovic at the Grand Slam event. Following his quarter-final win, he told the BBC: "I thought I played great out there today. It was a big occasion for Mikhail. My game suits up well against his. "He fought hard but maybe it wasn't enough, and I'm extremely happy to be in the semis at Wimbledon. I think it helps when royalty shows up and other legends of the game see me play. It's inspiring. "I don't think I've played Novak at Wimbledon, so hopefully it will be a nice match."
