TENNIS BETTING: Live on BBC from 12.00: Federer was comfortably beaten in 4 sets and Andy Murray must now face Nadal in the semi final. Compare all Wimbledon Odds.
Roger Federer has only lost 1 match at Wimbledon in 7 years, the 2008 final, but on Wednesday he doubled that total as Thomas Berdych impressively knocked the Swiss maestro out at the quarter-final stage. Federer had been 9/5 fav with 10bet and now Rafa Nadal takes up the mantle as 5/4 fav with Boylesports.
Nadal was back on his game as he overcame Robin Soderling in 4 sets and celebrated wildly as he set up a semi final tie with Andy Murray, who himself won in 4 sets against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Murray rolls in as 3/1 2nd fav with Betdaq, the bookies clearly thinking the winner of Wimbledon will come from this half of the draw.
Berdych and Djokovic are evenly locked in the semi final betting, Ladbrokes 1/1 about Berdych and Skybet offering 10/11 about Djokovic. It may be a shrewd move to back Djokovic in both the single and the outright as his 5/1 tag will soon drop, no matter who he faces in the final.
One special mention to unseeded Briton Oliver Golding who progressed to the boy’s quarters after beating no. 1 seed Jason Kubler.
Serena William Strode into the Ladies’ final of Wimbledon with a comfortable 2-0 win over Kvitova to face Vera Zvonareva of Russia on Saturday.
If you fancy a fight from the Russian, Serena to win 2-1 is 7/2 with Boylesports.
