Roger Federer is through to his tenth semi-final at Wimbledon, following a commanding 6-2 7-5 6-2 win over Gilles Simons.

The second seed will play 2013 champion Andy Murray in the last four on Friday, after the third seed dispatched Canadian Vasek Pospisil 6-4 7-5 6-4. Federer is 9-0 in Wimbledon semis and is looking to reach his 26th major final at the All England Club. He is 12-11 against Murray, with his latest victory over the home favourite coming at the ATP World Tour Finals in London’s O2 Arena last year.

Wednesday’s tie was not spared of a couple of rain interruptions; the first called just after the Swiss raced to a 3-0 lead in the opening set.

It was all clear for both players to take to Court 1 after 37 minutes, but Pospisil could offer little resistance to the 33-year-old’s onslaught, as he went on to wrap up a one-set-to-love lead in half and hour.

Federer broke his opponent in the seventh game of the second set, but serving for the set at 5-4, it was Simons who broke back to love.

Simon’s fightback was short-lived as the 7-time champion broke serves in the 11th game but while leading 15-0 in the 12th game, the players were forced off court as, again, it began chucking it down.

On resumption of play less than an hour later, Federer began throwing kitchen, sink and cutlery at the Frenchman; including three service winners on his track to claiming a two-set lead.

Federer continued on the front foot early into the third set, breaking No. 13 ranked Simons immediately and again in the seventh game, before closing out victory in one hour and 34 minutes.
