Federer, being the six-time champion, was defeated in his second straight quarter-final with 3-6, 6-7 (3/7), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 result.

Apparently, it was Tsonga’s first Wimbledon semi-final spot, in which he will face Novac Djokovic in Sunday’s final.

He was quoted saying, “It was amazing. I played unbelievable. It’s never easy to come back against Roger. I’m so happy, it’s crazy.”

“He’s the biggest champion in the sport. He has achieved so much and is the best player in the world. To be two sets down and come back was unbelievable. I served really well. Against Djokovic I will have to come out and do the same again,” he said in the report.

It was reported that Federer mis-hit the service return during their 10th game.
