World number five Roger Federer takes on Tomas Berdych in the semi-final of the men's singles at Wimbledon on Friday (14 July).

Where to watch live

The match starts at 2.30pm BST. Live coverage in the UK is on BBC One or BBC Two. Live scores and regular updates will be available on ATP's official website.


Federer faces Berdych for the third time this year, knowing one more win can take him that much closer to an unprecedented eight Wimbledon title.

Federer has so far comfortably disposed of Alexandr Dolgopolov, Dusan Lajovic, Mischa Zverev, Grigor Dimitrov and most recently, Milos Raonic, easily defeating him in straight sets on Wednesday (July 12).

One more victory will make him the second oldest man to reach the final two at Wimbledon as well as a record 11th final, having already achieved the record of most semi-finals with 12.

The 35-year-old will have to get past 2010 finalist Berdych first, who is looking to join Ivan Lendl as the only Czech players in the Open Era to reach more than one Wimbledon final.

The world number 15 has had quite a run to the semi-final himself with notable victories over young prospect Dominic Thiem and leading Novak Djokovic 7-6, 2-0 before the Serbian had to retire from their quarter-final match due to injury.

Berdych knows he has an uphill task but believes he is in the best possible situation right now.

"He's a really exceptional tennis player," Berdych said, as quoted on ATP World Tour. "I think he's the greatest of them all. It's a great challenge to actually have the opportunity to play him."

"I'm probably in the best possible situation I can be right now. I had a pretty good run so far...Really, I cannot be in a better position before Friday's match."
