Raonic triumphs over Federer in five set epic

Canada's Milos Raonic celebrates winning his match against Switzerland's Roger Federer on Friday at Wimbledon.

His Czech opponent Berdych, seeded 10th, is looking to return to the Wimbledon final for the first time in seven years, when he defeated the defending champion Roger Federer before falling to Rafael Nadal.

Raonic will still offer a stern test after he came back to oust Federer in five thrilling sets on Centre Court and became the first Canadian man to reach a grand slam singles final.

Murray and Raonic played each other three weeks ago in the final at Queen's Club, with Murray beating the Canadian in three sets.

Raonic is set to face the aforementioned Andy Murray in what will be a magnificent Wimbledon final on Sunday morning.

The Scot broke in the very next game and raced away to a two-set lead, leaving the deflated Berdych with a mountain to climb as more and more errors crept into his game. "Unexplainable for me, really", Federer said. This time, Federer flinched the way he seemingly never used to.

"Something went wrong. I can't believe I served a double-fault twice". That's why I think we've been a good team.

Federer looked on course for victory when leading two sets to one and he squandered three break points in the fourth set before serving two double faults to help the Canadian force a decider. I was able to really dictate the game and play aggressive.

A subdued Federer said afterwards: "I don't know what the injuries are".

Asked how badly he might have been injured, Federer replied: "I don't know yet".

The grip Murray had on the match gave the occasion an oddly low-key feel but Berdych could do nothing to generate jitters, missing with his forehand time and again.

"With the body that's been playing up this year, I just hope I'm going to be fine". He believed, like I did against Cilic.

In his previous Grand Slam semifinal match, Raonic lost to Murray at this year's Australian Open.

Whisper it quietly, but Andy Murray might just be in the best form of his life. After an inspired victory on Friday afternoon at SW19 he'll be the favorite in the final as well. "I made the most of it".

Tennis stars including Roger Federer and Serena Williams will likely play their last Olympic matches in Rio. I don't ever fall down. Hopefully, it will be even bigger if I win on Sunday.

"Something went wrong. Very sad about that and angry at myself because never should I allow him to get out of that (fourth) set that easily", Federer said.

He came through it having withstood two break points and then took his chance in the next game, piling the pressure on Berdych, who dumped an attempted drop shot into the net.
