Czech player continues Wimbledon success on Wednesday

Eleventh seed Tomas Berdych reached the Wimbledon semi-finals on Wednesday after a sudden retirement from second seed Novak Djokovic. The Serbian stopped play due to injury with Berdych leading 7-6(2), 2-0.

There were no breaks in the opening set, but Berdych raced through the tie-break to take the early advantage. Djokovic received treatment on his right shoulder after the first set. He dropped serve to trail 0-2 in the second set, then played one point in the next game before retiring after 63 minutes of play.

Berdych is into the final four at Wimbledon for the third time in his career, having finished runner-up in 2010 and posting a semi-final finish last year. The 31 year old improves to 3-25 against Djokovic in their FedEx ATP Head2Head rivalry. Two of those victories have come at Wimbledon, including a straight-sets win in the 2010 semi-finals.

Standing between Berdych and another final at the All England Club is third seed Roger Federer, who defeated sixth seed Milos Raonic in straight sets. Federer leads their FedEx ATP Head2Head 18-6 and has won their past seven matches, including two victories this year at the Australian Open and ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in Miami. The Swiss star has won two of their three grass-court matches, picking up victories at the 2006 Gerry Weber Open and Wimbledon championships, while Berdych prevailed in the 2010 Wimbledon quarter-finals.
