Roger Federer is set to play Andy Murray in a Men’s Singles Semifinal match of the ongoing 2015 Wimbledon tournament.
Federer, coming off of a 6-7-6 to 3-5-2 win against Gilles Simon on Wednesday, is expected to be the favorite of the match. He is a native of Switzerland.
Federer is ranked #2 in Singles and #590 in Doubles.
Murray, coming out of a 6-7-6- to 4-5-4 win over Vasek Pospisil, is expected to be the underdog. He is originally from the United Kingdom.
Murray is ranked #3 in Singles and #365 in Doubles.
Pospisil, who was defeated by Andy Murray in a Men’s Quarterfinal match, claims that Wimbledon umpires are too easy on top players in regards to time violations.
“A lot of times these umpires, they seem to just want to be seen,” Pospisil told ESPN.
“I don’t know why they do it at a time like that. I went 30 seconds. How many times do you see the top guys go more than that and they don’t get any violation, especially when it’s important moments.”
The match will begin on Friday at 11:00 a.m. (EST) and will be aired on television by ESPN. The match will take place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.
