Federer to march his way past Berdych

The evergreen Roger Federer made really light work of last year’s Wimbledon losing finalist Milos Raonic in their quarter final duel. Wednesday turned out to be a really good day for anyone who had backed Federer to go and in the title against this year at SW19. That is because world number one Andy Murray fell to a defeat against Sam Querrey because of injury problems and Novak Djokovic retired from his match against Tomas Berdych after losing the first set because of a bad elbow.

So that leaves Federer the only one of the big four standing in this year’s tournament and his odds of capturing the Wimbledon title for the eighth time in his career just tumbled even further. Now he goes off to face Berdych in the semi finals of the competition and Federer is 1/9 odds at bet365 on to take the victory the match, with Berdych a heavy underdog at 11/2. Frankly, the way that Federer is making everything look so easy, it’s hard to see him slipping up.

Federer just totally tore Raonic apart in their quarter final duel and Federer is a 4/6 quote at bet365 to win 3-0 again against Berdych. Federer holds an 18-6 head to head record against Czech player Berdych and Federer has won the last seven meetings between the two of them. They did meet at Wimbledon back in 2010 and on that occasion, Berdych did pull out a win over four sets in the quarter finals. Their only other Wimbledon meeting was in 2006 with Federer winning in straight sets.

Berdych was a losing semi finalist at Wimbledon last year, so he has matched his best ever run at SW19. Berdych has dropped at least a set in all but one of his Wimbledon matches this season, and he has seen off a notable contender Dominic Thiem over five sets in the fourth round. But that extra work against Theim will have been balanced out by the short time on court against Djokovic in that quarter final match up.

From three previous head to head games on grass, Federer is 2-1 up over Berdych. Federer just looks imperious at the moment and will be expected to march on towards yet another Grand Slam Final. Federer is just making things look so easy at the moment, holding his serve without any fuss and he hasn’t dropped a set so far in this season’s championship. He just hasn’t been phased at all and he won 90% of his first serve points against Raonic in that semi final. There is a certain sense of inevitably now that they will get his hands on the title again.
