Wimbledon 2017: Marin Cilic still a danger for Roger Federer

Murray Upset, Djokovic Retirement Causes Chaos; Federer Cruising at Wimbledon

Murray Upset, Djokovic Retirement Causes Chaos; Federer Cruising at Wimbledon

The two-time champion at the All England Club saved two match points in the 10th game of the fifth set, and two more in the 20th game.

Djokovic said he has been suffering with an elbow injury for around 18 months and admitted his and Murray's ailments could be linked to their heavy workloads a year ago. The specialists I've talked with haven't been too clear, mentioning also surgery, mentioning different options.

"He kept a very high gear the entire time without giving many real glimpses, and that was the most defeating thing", Raonic said. The decider belonged entirely to Cilic especially after he managed to break Muller's serve right in the beginning of the set.

Although the elbow injury has been present for a while, Djokovic's withdrawal could have been potentially staved off with the help of the WImbledon organizers.

These two have played 24 times and Federer has won 18 of those meetings. It is his 100th match, so it changed as an extra special because of his win and also he enters into the 12th semifinal with a better performance than the last year's finalist, Raonic in the quarterfinals.

The Serb, who needed to win the title to again overtake Murray in the rankings, lost the opening set in a tiebreak and then fell behind 0-2 in the second before succumbing to a right elbow injury.

"I was able to perform up to this stage. I had got stuck in the quarter-finals for the last three years", said Cilic after his victory. The level of pain was always increasing and today was the worst day. "Probably the fact that I played yesterday, kind of days adding up, as I've said before, it wasn't helping at all". He skipped the 2016 and 2017 French Opens which were won by Djokovic and Nadal. She was the first woman to win her debut tour-level title at a Grand Slam tournament since 1979.

The last time the pair met at Wimbledon, the Czech caused a boilover on Centre Court, winning in four sets.

Andy Murray lost his game because he struggled with his hip during match time against Sam Querrey.

Defending champion and No. 1 seed Andy Murray was eliminated earlier Wednesday by 24th-seeded American Sam Querrey, 3-6, 6-4, 6-7, 6-1, 6-1.

Now, as the tournament heads to the semifinals on Friday, only Federer remains.

Becker believes Murray and Djokovic, both 30, need to think long-term just like Federer.

The ageless Swiss master remains firmly on track for an unprecedented eighth men's singles crown after atoning for a five-set semi-final loss previous year to Milos Raonic with a 6-4 6-2 7-6 (7-4) destruction of the big-serving Canadian. "It's big for him to step out on court and give it a go, even though maybe knowing, like me a year ago, that chances are slim he was going to defend this title".
