2012 Wimbledon:Novak Djokovic Will Face Roger Federer In Semifinals

The semifinals are set on the men's side at Wimbledon after Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won their quarterfinal matches on Wednesday. No. 1 seed Djokovic easily won his match over Florian Mayer in straight sets 6-4, 6-1 and 6-4.

Mayer had no shot against Djokovic who is looking to win his second straight Wimbledon Championship. Djokovic was overly dominant against Mayer and the game was won on an ace by Djokovic.

Djokovic will now take on No. 3 seeded Roger Federer who also won in straight sets by cruising past Mikhail Youzhny, and also winning in straight sets 6-1, 6-2 and 6-2. Federer won the match in a brisk 91 minutes and was never challenged by Youzhny.

Federer will take on Djokovic in the first semifinal match.

In the other half of the bracket saw No. 4 seeded Andy Murray advance after defeating No. 7 seeded David Ferrer in four sets that ended with Murray winning 6-7, 7-6, 6-4 and 7-6. The match did see a 27-minute rain delay in the fourth set with it being tied 5-5. Ferrer needed that break since Murray was gaining the momentum during that fourth set, but Murray was able to finish off Ferrer.

In the final quarterfinal match, it was No. 5 seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga defeat Philipp Kohlschreiber in four sets by a score of 7-6, 4-6, 7-6 and 6-2.

Tsonga will take on Murray in the other semifinal match with each player looking for their first-ever win at Wimbledon.
