Wimbledon men’s quarter finals: Federer beat Youzhny 6-1, 6-2, 6-2
Six-times Wimbledon champion Roger Federer is relishing the prospect of facing world number one and defending champion Novak Djokovic in the semi finals at the All England Club.
The Swiss star cruised past Mikhail Youzhny, dropping only five games as he triumphed 6-1, 6-2, 6-2.
“I thought I played great out there today,” Federer told the BBC.
“It was a big occasion for Mikhail. My game suits up well against his.
“He fought hard but maybe it wasn’t enough, and I’m extremely happy to be in the semis at Wimbledon.
“I think it helps when royalty shows up and other legends of the game see me play.
“It’s inspiring. I’m happy they all came and supported me.
“Novak has to finish the third set, but I’d love to play Novak next.
“I don’t think I’ve played him at Wimbledon, so hopefully it will be a nice match.”
