Roger Federer vs Andy Murray – the semifinal that everyone wanted, with one player a big favourite at the All-England Club and the other the one everyone at SW19 wants to see lift the title.

This promises to be a humdinger of a Wimbledon 2015 semifinal, with Roger Federer desperate to move ever closer to that eighth Wimbledon title, while Murray will be equally determined to get his hands on a second crown.

The last time these two met at Wimbledon, it was in the 2012 final, with Federer coming up trumps. Murray would get his revenge, though, a few weeks later by beating the great man in the final of the London Olympics at the same Centre Court.

So, however you look at it, this is the kind of match that you wait an entire year for to watch. "It brings back those memories of a great summer for both of us," Federer said when asked about meeting Murray again. "Yeah, just all the matches we've played against one another.

"More importantly for me, I'm very happy to be in the semis again. The road is long getting here. But still I feel like I'm fresh and I've got energy left in the tank for hopefully a great match with Andy and then we'll see. But I'm looking forward to it."

Federer has certainly looked good on his way to the semis, hardly putting a foot wrong, and dropping just one set in the entire Championships.

The 17-time Grand Slam champion's serving has been superlative – the best in the tournament – and while Gilles Simon finally broke the great man for the first time in Wimbledon 2015, it was not even remotely enough to give Federer a scare.

That straight-set win over Simon was pretty impressive, and Federer will know he will have to be in the same zone to top Murray, who will no doubt have a partisan crowd behind him.

"I just hope the crowd gets into it and enjoys a good match and that we can play well," Federer said.

"I hope I get good support on Friday," Murray added. "It's been the case throughout the whole event and every year that I played here. Roger's obviously extremely popular everywhere he goes.

"So, it might not be as partisan a crowd or atmosphere as some matches that I play here. But it will still be an excellent atmosphere, so I'll still get a boost from the crowd, I'm sure."

Murray will know crowd support alone will not get him the win against Federer. The way the Swiss great has been playing, the No.3 seed will need to produce his best match of the tournament so far.

His serve remains a big concern, especially with the Scot struggling with a bit of a shoulder niggle. Federer is the kind of player who will punish any weak serve, which makes Murray's serving extremely important in this semifinal.

"My shoulder's felt better the last two, three days really," Murray said. "Been hitting a bunch of serves in practice still. Would like to get a little bit more pace behind the first serve. But, yeah, hopefully that comes the next couple of days."

Federer is in his tenth semifinal at Wimbledon, and having never lost at this stage before at the All-England Club, Murray certainly has the odds against him going into this big match.
