TENNIS- Swiss 20 time champion Roger Federer and Spanish 18 time winner Rafael Nadal will meet for an epic Wimbledon semi-final on 12th July.

They have not played against each other at Wimbledon since the 2008 final.

Nadal made light of his 7-5 6-2 6-2 win against Sam Querrey and Federer defeated Japanese Kei Nishikori 4-6 6-1 6-4 6-4 for his 100th Wimbledon win.

With this, Federer has become the first player in history to win 100 men’s singles matches at a single Grand Slam event.

On his upcoming match against Roger Federer, Nadal said: “I just expect to play against probably the best player of the history in this surface and know that I have to play my best if I want to have chances to try to be in that final."

The other semi-final will be between Serbian Novak Djokovic and Robert Bautista Agut on the same day.
