Wimbledon Tennis Men's Semi-finals: Roger Federer v Andy Murray

Wimbledon semi-finals rarely disappoint and tomorrow they are sure to be tense affairs again. The standout match-up is 7 times champion Roger Federer versus 2013 champion Andy Murray. The match will take place late afternoon on Friday and both the crowd and the TV spectators will be on the edge of their seats wondering if British hero Murray can reach his 3rd Wimbledon final.

Its not going to be easy for Andy. Roger Federer is in excellent form on the grass and he knows these grass courts better than anyone. He has only dropped serve once in this years championship playing very solid tennis and in confident style. He generates great speed in his shot making and has great feel at Wimbledon with his chip and charge tennis. Federer though is not going to dominate on serve and with Andy Murray one of the best returners in the game so it makes for a cracking contest. Murray himself will have to use his 1st serve well and keep his head and not get frustrated. Murray needs to use the crowd to his advantage but needs to be aware that Roger Federer is also a crowd favourite at Wimbledon even though he isn't British. 

Both players know each other's games very well and have few secrets. They have played 23 times before and Roger narrowly leads 12-11. On grass they have only played twice and these both came within weeks of each other in 2012. Roger won in 4 sets here at Wimbledon and Andy gained revenge in the Olympics also at the Wimbledon Centre Court in straight sets to win Gold.

It is likely to be tight match with not much in, maybe even sets decided on tie-breaks. Both players are in form and playing well, both are motivated to win and the match could go either way. I feel Andy Murray has had a tougher workout this year in early rounds and so this may give an advantage
