Wimbledon – nearing the end…0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:40 pm

British player Andy Murray is through to the Wimbledon semi-finals after a tough four set victory over David Ferrer 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (8-6), 6-4, 7-6 (7-4) in 3 hours and 52 minutes. Murray completed the match with his 18thace, 3 times the amount his opponent managed to produce. He will face Frenchman Jo-Wilfred Tsonga in Friday’s semi-final and if he wins he will be the first British man to win a major since Fred Perry in 1936.

In the other half of the men’s draw, Roger Federer cruised past Russian No.26 seed Mikhail Youzhny, winning in straight sets 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. His next opponent will be the No.1 seed Novak Djokovic, the defending champion and other favourite for the title. Djokovic also won in straight sets, despite being in trouble in the first set, defeating the German – Florian Mayer 6-4, 6-1, 6-4. Both of these men’s semi-finals will be played this Friday, with the final this Sunday. If Federer was to win in the final, it would be his seventh singles title at Wimbledon and by winning, he would also automatically win the charity ‘Oxfam’ just over £100,000. This is because in 2003, Nick Newlife put a £1,520 bet that Federer will win seven Wimbledon titles by 2019, at odds of 66/1. Sadly, he passed away in 2009 but left the betting slip in his will to Oxfam, meaning they could potentially gain a large sum of money if Federer was to win.

However, on the women’s side the favourite Serena Williams who defeated defending champion Petra Kvitova in straight sets, will take on Victoria Azarenka in the semi-finals – if Azarenka was to win and reach the finals, she would reclaim her No.1 spot after the shock exit of No.1 seed Maria Sharapova in the fourth round. Whoever wins, will face either No.3 seed Agnieszka Radwanska, who saw off the Russian Maria Kirilenko in an extremely tough 2 hour and 50 minute match or Angelique Kerber of Germany who defeated her good friend Sabine Lisicki – the woman who knocked out No.1 seed and favourite, Maria Sharapova. Both of these semi-finalists have never made it to a major final, so it is definitely worth the watch.

Neither Azarenka, Radwanska or Kerber have ever won the title – however if Serena Williams was to win this year, it would be her fifth singles title at Wimbledon. The womens semi-finals will be on Thursday 5th July, starting at 12.30pm on BBC2.
