Federer, Nadal Continue Collision Course At Wimbledon

Roger Federer is two wins away from
becoming just the second man to win six straight Wimbledon
championships. The world Number 1 took out Mario Ancic
6-1, 7-5, 6-4 in today's rain-interupted men's quarterfinals for
his 64th straight victory on grass. The Croatian is the last man to
beat Federer at the All England Club. But, after pulling off the
first-round upset in 2002, he's dropped six straight to the Swiss
star.
Federer, who is the only man at this year's tournament to win
every set, will face Marat Safin in Friday's
semifinals. The two-time Grand Slam champion became the first
Russian man to reach the Wimbledon semifinals in the Open era with
a 3-6, 7-5, 7-6, 6-2 victory over Feliciano Lopez.

Second seed Rafael Nadal followed Federer onto
Centre Court. The French Open champ is taking on Britain's Andy
Murray. The 12th-seeded Scotsman rallied from two sets down to win
his fourth-round match and keep British hopes alive.
Arnaud Clement versus Rainer Schuettler rounds out today's quarterfinals schedule.
