No. 11 Tomas Berdych upset second-seeded Novak Djokovic 7-6 (2), 2-0, Wednesday in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, as Djokovic was forced to retire due to injury.
Djoker was the third of the “Big Four” members to fall as Rafael Nadal lost in the previous round and top-seeded Andy Murray was ousted earlier Wednesday by American Sam Querrey.
For Berdych, the win marks his second consecutive trip to the Wimbledon semifinals and the third of his career.
Roger Federer is now a significant favorite to win the tournament after beating Milos Raonic in straight sets to advance to the semifinals.
Fed will take on Berdych, and the victor will face the winner of Querrey versus Marin Cilic in the Wimbledon final.
