Wimbledon 2017 Day 11 : Preview and Order of Play

It Men’s semi-finals day at Wimbledon : 

24th seed Sam Querrey and seventh seed Marin Cilic will take on at centre court first at 1 pm local time and both have previously played the second-longest match in Wimbledon history and both will look to reach their first final at the All England Club.

Overall the pair has met a total of four times with Cilic winning all encounters, the other nerve racking thing that should be noted, is that all these wins have been on grass.

While Cilic has the upper hand against Querrey at every meeting, it should be pointed out that each time they have met in Wimbledon (2009,2012) the match has gone to five sets.

They will be followed by Federer, bidding for an eighth crown here, against Berdych who was a losing finalist in 2010.

Federer has yet to drop a set as he looks to become the second-oldest man to reach a Wimbledon final in the open era , Ken Rosewall finished runner-up at the age of 39 in 1974 and ultimately extend his record number of Grand Slam titles to 19.

He has an 18-6 career record against Berdych, and has won their past seven matches, although the Czech claimed significant victories over Federer at the 2004 Olympics, 2010 Wimbledon and 2012 US Open.
