Federer out as Nadal, Djokovic and Murray advance

Day 9 of Wimbledon had some major surprises as six-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer was eliminated.

Federer threw away a 2-set lead as he was defeated by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Federer has never thrown a two-set lead at a grand slam tournament.

Federer looked well on his way to a victory before Tsonga made a fantastic comeback. The match ended 3-4 6-7(3) 6-4 6-4 6-4.

Tsonga will now meet No. 2 seed Novak Djokovic who defeated Australian teenager Bernard Tomic.

It was looking like there was going to be another upset when Tomic gave Djokovic a scare in the third set. The experience of the world No. 2 showed as he fought back to win the match 6-2 3-6 6-3 7-5.

Andy Murray is still on the road to winning his first grand slam title as he defeated Feliciano Lopez.

Murray brushed aside Lopez in three sets 6-3 6-4 6-4 to set up a mouthwatering clash against No. 1 seed and defending champion, Rafael Nadal.

World No. 1 and defending champion Rafael Nadal set up a fascinating last-four clash against home favourite Andy Murray after defeating Mardy Fish 6-3 6-3 5-7 6-4.

Nadal showed no signs of ill-effects from the foot injury he picked up in the previous round.

Nadal went on to win the match 6-3 6-3 5-7 6-4.
