Roger Federer today defeated Canadian Milos Raonic in straight sets to make his way to the men’s singles semi-finals at the Wimbledon tennis tournament.
The former world no. 1 took approximately two hours to carve out a 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (4) victory against the Canadian Milos Raonic. Federer has thus avenged his defeat to Raonic in a five-set epic at last year’s Wimbledon.
Seven-time Wimbledon champion Federer fired 46 winners and committed just nine unforced errors to get into the semi-finals for the 12th time at the All England Club. The Swiss legend, who held his serve against Raonic, made the most of half of the six break points he was offered and was 0-3 down in the tiebreak, but he managed to win five consecutive points to seal the win.
