Day 11 Men's Semi-Final Day

It was a day when history was going to made. A day that for the first time in seven years wasn't featuring Roger Federer. It was a day when each man had to fight for a place in the men's final.
First up on centre court saw Djokovic loose against man of the moment Berdych. Berdych was on fire in much the same way as he was against Federer the match before. Djokovic looked like the unluckiest man in the world in his match. But that not to say that Berdych played excellent and was playing the better game. A fully deserving men's semi-final winner.
Next up was the match the whole country was gearing up to and both men had a lot to prove. Murray was always going to have the home court advantage but Nadal is not exactly hated at Wimbledon. Both men played so well and its a pitty both of these men were in the same half of the draw. Think how great a final this match could have been. But unfortunately Nadal was (only slightly) the better man on the day. Here's hoping Murray will find all the success he truly deserves one day. After all he is the only man in the top four who hasn't won a major title yet. But I do think it will happen for him one day. And I think that day will be in either the US Open or Australian Open.
This years mens final is at least going to be a little different this year.
