Even though the final between Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic is going on right now, I’m thinking of Roger Federer … still so sad he lost to Andy Murray in the semi-final 5 set match on Friday. Andy just won the first set in a tie-breaker of the final - a real battle…. I’m hoping he beats Djokovic… I like Andy, and Djokovic, but I want Andy’s win to show that Roger really had a very tough opponent in the semi-final if Andy beats the World #1. Really, Roger is playing outstanding tennis and I know he can win another grand slam this year…and he will beat both Andy and Novak again.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROGER!!!!

Swiss Master Roger Federer Knocks Down Novak Djokovic in Wimbledon Semi-Final!!!!
Roger Federer in eighth Wimbledon final
LONDON — Perpetual rain, the changing of the guard, double-decker buses, fish, chips, and Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final.
Quintessential London was safe and sound Friday afternoon when Federer, the Swiss master whose initials are embedded in the AELTC’s emerald turf, knocked down world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3, to reach the Wimbledon final for the eighth time.
Federer got the job done again with his trademark fluidity, consistency, and near-flawless ground game, but what tied it all together was his unusually strong service game, with which he conjured 12 aces (to Djokovic’s nine) as well as a 72 percent success rate on second service points — an important 15 percent more wiggle room than the crafty Djokovic. That bit of underlying mettle to Federer’s game allowed him to be more aggressive against the tournament favorite.
