Federer, Murray to face each other in Wimbledon semis

Roger Federer and Andy Murray have a date in the Wimbledon semifinals on Friday, their second in the history of the tournament.

The country’s favorite son, Murray, playing before Prince William and Princess Kate, outlasted Canadian Vasek Pospisil despite a delay to close the roof on Centre Court in his 6-4, 7-5, 6-4.

Federer improved to 9-0 in quarterfinal play at Wimbledon just as Murray’s match was moving into the final set. The seven-time Wimbledon champion beat Frenchman Gilles Simon 6-3, 7-5, 6-2.

Federer leads the all-time series with Murray 12-11, and is 4-1 in Grand Slam events. Federer beat Murray in the 2012 final at Wimbledon.
