Wimbledon Coming to an End

Wimbledon is beginning to wind down but some of the sport’s big names remain alive in the tournament.  The men’s single’s quarterfinals are being played Wednesday as Roger Federer plays against Marin Cilic, Milos Raonic faces Sam Querrey, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga goes up against Andy Murray and Lucas Pouille plays Tomas Berdych. There will also be action in men’s and women’s doubles competition.

This is not the first time that Roger Federer will face off Marin Cilic in tournament. The two met before during the US Open when it was said that Cilic blew Federer away.

As for the women’s singles, play will not resume until Thursday when Serena Williams will face off Elena Vesnina and sister Venus Williams will play against Angelique Kerber.

This will be the first time in six years that Venus Williams will appear in a Wimbledon singles semi-final since 2009. She has also become the oldest semi-finalist since 37 year-old Martina Navratilova in 1994. Venus had a couple of words to say on her sister’s action and their upcoming match.
