    Roger Federer defeats Andy Murray to reach 10th Wimbledon final

    July 11, 2015

    LONDON — Playing the kind of untouchable tennis that has brought him 17 Grand Slam titles, Roger Federer beat Andy Murray in straight sets Friday to reach his 10th Wimbledon final and put him within one victory of a record eighth championship at the All England Club.

    Riding a dominant serve that produced 20 aces, keeping relentless pressure on Murray with his returns and breaking at the end of each set, Federer put on a supreme grass-court performance to outclass his British rival 7-5, 7-5, 6-4.


    “I played so well on the biggest occasion today, and that’s probably why I got it,” Federer said.


    The win sent Federer into his 26th Grand Slam final, where he will face defending champion Novak Djokovic in Sunday’s championship match. The top-ranked Serb beat Richard Gasquet 7-6 (2), 6-4, 6-4 to advance to his fourth final in five years.


    It will be a repeat of last year’s final, won by Djokovic in five sets.
