Wimbledon 2017 - Federer Favourite but Don't Rule Out the Big Servers: Zeeshan Ali

Jul 13, 2017 08:34 PM IST Sports Sports

Swiss Maestro Roger Federer will be facing Czech Tomas Berdych in the Wimbledon semifinals of Friday.

The stage appears to be set for Federer to win a record 8th singles title at the All England Club after defending champion Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic both crashed out in the quarterfinals.

But India's Davis Cup coach Zeeshan Ali believes that while Federer is the favourite, former US Open Champion Marin Cilic and Murray's conqueror Sam Querrey - who will be contesting the other semifinal - cannot be ruled out.

Both the Croatian and the American have used their big serves to devastating effect in the tournament so far - and will provide a tough challenge to Federer if he makes it to Sunday's Grand Final.
