Roger Federer to face Rafael Nadal in Wimbledon semi-finals

Roger Federer brought up a century of victories at Wimbledon and now faces a blockbuster semi-final clash with old foe Rafael Nadal.

Federer shook off a nervy start, coming from a set down to defeat Japan’s Nishikori 4-6 6-1 6-4 6-4, while Nadal eased past big-serving American Sam Querrey 7-5 6-2 6-2.

He made it through to his 45th Grand Slam semi-final as he stayed on course for a record-extending ninth Wimbledon title, but if he is going to do that he will more than likely have to beat both Nadal and world No 1 Novak Djokovic.

At 37 years and 340 days, Federer became the oldest man to reach the semi-finals at a Grand Slam since Jimmy Connors at the 1991 US Open as he became the first man to reach 100 wins at the All England Club and is in his 13th last-four clash.
