Roger Rasheed: Wimbledon men's draw lights up now with Fedal clash

Former Australian tennis player Roger Rasheed is looking forward to the men's semifinal action at Wimbledon. The highlight of the semifinals will be the highly anticipated blockbuster between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, while in the remaining semifinal Novak Djokovic will take on Roberto Bautista Agut.

Federer, a record eight-time time Wimbledon champion, overcame No. 8 seed Kei Nishikori in four sets to set up a semifinal meeting against third-seeded Nadal -- who handed a straight-set defeat to American Sam Querrey. Meanwhile, world No.

1 Djokovic needed three sets to beat 2017 Nitto ATP Finals runner-up David Goffin, while Bautista Agut saw off Guido Pella in four sets to reach his maiden Grand Slam semifinal. "The men’s draw at Wimbledon lights up now with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal going at it on Friday - it was due here.

Can’t wait," Rasheed said on Twitter. "Super happy for Bautista Agut, (who) has dealt with so much adversity and carried himself so well - respect. Three genuine individuals right there."
