The first two sets on Wednesday were superb to say the least and everything looked fine as far as Roger Federer’s health was concerned, as a matter of fact he looked as good as he did for these past few years at Wimbledon. Prior to Wednesday’s game Roger Federer was a good 178-0 when he was taking on the first two sets of the Grand Slam match. Football lines
However, this time Federer was facing a much younger, better serving and quicker player who actually stopped him in his tracks. Federer lost 3-6, 6-7 (3), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 to the 12th seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga from France during the quarterfinals of the Men’s Wimbledon. He leaves Wimbledon for the second time in a row after he reached the seven finals from 2003 to 09. However Federer was sounding defiant even after being defeated saying that he played well against the winner and is certain he can improve even though he will now turn 30 later in August.

Federer said “When I was 20, I would have been crushed: ‘I can’t go on; I’ll never get another chance to be in a quarterfinal of a Grand Slam.’ But today, I know that I should probably have lots more,” Federer also lost in the French Open final in 2011 “I don’t have that mental stress. I know what I’ve accomplished already. It’s different when you’re older and you’ve accomplished as much as I have.”
Federer’s is a third seeded player and his loss has prevented this year’s Wimbledon from being the first since back in 1995 with the top four men being in the semifinals. Las Vegas odds
Djkovic who is now destined to replace Nada in the No. 1 spot said “There are other players that are able to play great tennis, and Tsonga has proved it today,” “It’s all very close at this level, especially in the second week of a Grand Slam.”
In the seimifinals on Friday Djokovic will be facing Tsonga who is now 46-1 in this year with the only loss being at the hands of Federer during the French Open. Nadal the defending champion will be playing against Murray who is hoping to give the UK its first ever men’s title at the All England Club in seventy five years.
