It was, however, injured in the course of the day.
In the semi-final, he will face Czech Tomas Berdych. "Federer is playing the best tennis ever at the age of 35 because he has got everything right in the rest of his life too", Boris Becker told the BBC. Querrey will continue to be the underdog at Wimbledon, and his résumé against Roger implies he won't stand a chance if he does reach the finals, but he's defied expectations so far. Instead, Konta, Britain's top-seeded woman, is the only player left to fly the flag and faces Venus Williams on Centre Court on Thursday.
This time it was not his lack of motivation or eagerness, but a lingering injury on his right elbow.
"It all depends on how much damage is in the joint". "Unfortunately, today was the worst day". I had a schedule to play all the time. He held with an ace, 6-4, after 31 minutes.
Rybarikova, who beat Pliskova in the second round, defeated Petra Martic of Croatia 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 and advanced to the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time.
Sam Querrey rejoices during his match against Andy Murray. The contrast between the 18-time Grand Slam title winner and the other three contenders could not be more stark. Colourfully overstated but his point was well made.
Federer despatched last year's runner-up Milos Raonic 6-4 6-2 7-6 (7-4) in the quarter-finals and is now clear favourite to eclipse the legendary Pete Sampras by lifting the trophy on Sunday.

"Last year I had a hard, hard time practicing through the clay-court season". I hope that Novak's OK with his injury.
Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic may be battered and bruised, but Roger Federer has handed them the blueprint to keep playing into their mid-30s - take a risk, take a break.
So here were are in the semifinals of Wimbledon at the storied lawn courts in London.
A 137mph ace from Raonic merely delayed things, and Federer served it out, 7-6 (4), in just under two hours. He retired from his quarterfinal match at Wimbeldon after losing the first two games of the second set, handing a semifinal berth to Berdych.
Yet winning this year's tournament - his first Wimbledon title in five years - would arguably be Federer's greatest achievement at the All England Club to date. The 2017 Wimbledon rolls on Friday with the semi-final matches. "I'm confident, too. Then great things do happen", Federer said after becoming the oldest Wimbledon semi-finalist since 1974.
"If she said she didn't want to travel any more, I'll say, 'okay, my career is over' - it's as simple as that", the third seed said. I was really lacking practice.
"As long as it kind of comes and goes, it's fine, but obviously, adding up, maybe it worked for seven, eight, 10 months, but now the next seven months is not working that great. I believe that can make a huge difference", he said.
