Querrey advances to Wimbledon semifinals

Querrey advances to Wimbledon semifinals”

The No. 1 men's tennis player lost to American Sam Querrey in five sets Wednesday in their Wimbledon quarterfinal matchup, so he already wasn't in the best mood for his post-match press conference. "For the last point, I was just happy to hit the serve in".

"Sam served great. The end of the fourth set and fifth set, felt like he hardly missed any first serves".

"The whole tournament I've been a little bit sore, but I tried my best right to the end, gave everything I had". I'm proud of that.

Querrey will now face Marin Cilic--who defeated Gilles Muller 3-6, 7-6 (8/6), 7-5, 5-7, 6-1--in the semi-finals.

He has reached 10 finals to date, winning the most recent of his seven Wimbledon titles against Murray in 2012. "He played a phenomenal game in the beginning to break me". The men's semifinals will take place on Friday, with the women's final on Saturday and the men's final closing things out on Sunday. Up one set and 2-0, the Serb retired with an elbow injury, but nobody should go to sleep on Berdych's chances.

'I just hope he can recover quickly and get ready for America really, or Canada for that matter'. I was able for 30 minutes to play with pain that was bearable.

"If it means training and doing the rehab and stuff then I'll do that".

Querrey, who knocked out then defending champion Novak Djokovic past year, broke again for a 5-1 lead in the fifth and then wrapped up the match with a booming ace to become the first American man to reach a grand slam semi-final since Andy Roddick at Wimbledon in 2009.

The Swiss has yet to drop a set in the tournament.

"You wish them well right away as a rival to them and a friend", Federer said. "I'm very pleased with how I'm playing, you don't feel the same every day, but you adjust to conditions". He will likely bounce back and be a strong contender at the US Open in the coming months.

Murray is the favorite to win today with bet365 Sports backing his win with odds of 1.14. "I'd love to see that final", Hewitt said.

Berdych reached the Wimbledon final in 2010, losing to Rafael Nadal.
