Djokovic, Murray consider taking long breaks to recover

Asked to describe himself, moments after ending a British Wimbledon dream, Querrey modestly said: "I'm ranked 26, pretty good grass court player". Federer was 18-6 against Berdych, but the 11th-seeded Czech beat Federer in the quarterfinals during his run to the Wimbledon final in 2010. Hopefully I'll come through the other side of it a better player, a better athlete.

Only two of the last 19 sets these two have played have gone to 7-6 and 2/1 seems a big price about there being no tie-break in Friday's semi-final.

Djokovic called for the trainer after losing the first set on a tie break and withdrew two games later in obvious pain.

Federer will face Marin Cilic in Sunday's final on Centre Court.

The Swiss has yet to drop a set in the tournament.

Joel Embiid will attend the game but will not play. "I'm really excited to represent Team World ", Nowitzki said. You already know Dirk Nowitzki is in the game, as he was named captain of Team World earlier this summer.

The 28-year-old seventh seed crunched 25 aces in advancing to the final of tennis's greatest stage. It has been a huge build-up for him over the last seven to 10 years with his training that he done and the matches he has played: "the conditions he has faced and what he has put his body through", he added. "After swatting Raonic aside in straight sets Federer became, at 35, the oldest man to reach a semi-final since Ken Rosewall in 1974".

Querrey had just pulled off an upset against No. 1 Andy Murray in five sets.

"I didn't start my best but kept with it and kept swinging and I hit my groove in the fourth and fifth sets", said Querrey, who previous year at the All England Club beat another world No. 1 in Djokovic. Instead, Rafael Nadal was out-dueled in a fourth-round thriller, and Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic sputtered to quarterfinals losses in part because of injuries. But Querrey broke back to force another tiebreaker. Their last match at the All England Club, in 2012, went five sets and Cilic won 17-15 in the fifth. That's who he is and one thing we love about him.

That's because this wasn't just some tossed-off remark from the world's number one player, looking to score a few social media points for being a #wokebae.

The contrast between Federer and Murray and Djokovic on Wednesday was impossible to ignore. Querrey, in contrast, has more of a tendency to take big swings on the return.
