Wimbledon Scores And Results

Tennis fans will get a superstar match after all at this year's Wimbledon tournament -- even despite the fact that the No. 2 player in the world, Rafael Nadal, was knocked out in the early rounds.

Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer will meet in one of the two Gentlemen's semifinal matches, after both players advanced in straight sets on Wednesday.

The top-seeded Djokovic disposed of Florian Mayer, the 31st seed in the tournament, with ease, winning 6-4, 6-1, 6-4. Mayer never stood to stand much of a chance against the Djoker, but advancing to the quarterfinals of Wimbledon is nothing to sneeze at for the 31st seed.

Federer breezed as well, defeating Mikhail Youzhny, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. Suffice to say, both Federer and Djokovic will have a much tougher task on Friday, when they face each other in what could be a tennis match for the ages.

The other Gentlemen's semifinal will pit the fourth and fifth seeds. No. 4 Andy Murray defeated No. 7 David Ferrer in four sets, 6-7 (7-5), 7-6 (8-6), 6-4, 7-6 (7-4). Murray will face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who defeated 27th-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber, 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 7-6 (7-3), 6-2.
