No. 3 seed Novak Djokovic takes on No. 12 seed Tomas Berdych Friday afternoon July 2nd for the first 2010 Wimbledon Men’s Semifinal match at the Centre Court in Wimbledon, London, United Kingdom. Game time is at 1:00pm.

Serbian Novak Djokovic has advanced to the Wimbledon semifinals for the second time by beating unseeded Yen-hsun Lu 6-3, 6-2, 6-2.

In the other quarterfinal match, Tomas Berdych upset top-seeded Roger Federer 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 to advance to his first Wimbledon semifinal.

After slaying tennis’ very own Goliath, Czech giant Tomas Berdych will re-load the slingshot when he faces Serbia’s Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon semi-final on Friday. The elegant baseline pounder, who stands at an imposing 6′ 5″ (1.96 metres) tall, is now on the brink of a maiden grand slam final having torn apart Roger Federer with a formidable barrage of groundstrokes that rocked the Swiss maestro.

Berdych, at 24, is the oldest of the four semi-finalists and the only one to have never reached a grand slam final, but he is a man in form.

He pummelled his way through to the French Open semi-final, beating potential Wimbledon final opponent Andy Murray on his way, before eventually losing in five sets to runner-up Robin Soderling.

“First of all, you win a couple of matches at the beginning of the year and then you get confidence, it keeps going and going,” he said after Wednesday’s match.

“It’s not only about the last two weeks. It started in the United States, Indian Wells, Miami. So it’s quite far ago.

“You get more and more experience. I am a little bit older, more focused, mentally stronger than before. That’s what you need.”

The winner of this semifinal match will face the winner of Friday’s other semi-final clash between Britain’s Murray and 2008 champion Nadal.
