Murray all the way. Although yesterday I was a little Andy Worry when it went to 5 sets.

Would love to see a Federer/Murray final.. it'd be close. Fed came back from 2-0 yesterday, helluva match

Wanted to see Fed play Querrey just for fun, guess Novak just had a bad day?

Hope so - the amount of pressure that guy has to deal with is incredible. A second Wimbledon title would be much deserved, imo. Saying that, I'd also like to see Roger get one more Grand Slam - he's such a class act.

It was a good 'un. But, I cannot believe Cilic had 3 (or 4?) Match Points on second serves to go after and couldn't even get a return in the court! He's not going to forget that in a hurry.

Raonic!!! He's playing his best tennis ever, and hopefully gets a tired Fed! Great semis

Yup! His 3rd Grand Slam semis. It would be nice for him to get to that next step and reach his first GS final.

Milos has beaten all three remaining players including Roger earlier this year.

Yes, Raonic has been playing his best tennis. The addition of McEnroe to the coaching staff to help with his volley game has paid off nicely. To have 2 great weapons (his serve and his ability to attack the net with confidence) means good things going forward. Last time these two met in a major, Milos has trouble with first serves and Roger just clocked him on second serves. Hopefully there isn't a repeat.

I really want Fed to win 1 more and this seems like the best opportunity he'll have.
