Wimbledon: Kevin Anderson Breaks Roger Federer's Incredible Record

Swiss star Roger Federer's Incredible service run at Wimbledon is over.

Kevin Anderson, who is facing the Swiss international for a place in the semi-final, is the first man to break his serve all tournament.

Federer had not lost a service match at the All England Club since last year’s semi-final with Tomas Berdych - stretching an incredible 85 games.

That covers the final victory over Marin Cilic and victories over Dusan Lajovic, Lukas Lacko and Jan-Lennard Struff.

Federer is in action against Anderson on Court 1, much to the outrage of fans on Centre Court, and those who queued since earlier in the week.

Federer beat Anderson 6-2 of the first set in the quarter-final but needed a tiebreak in the second.

Federer is looking to win his ninth Wimbledon title and his 21st Grand Slam.

The No 1 seed is the huge favourite despite Novak Djokovic’s good form and Rafael Nadal’s progress.

Andy Murray, who is not playing this yeardue to an injury, has in fact backed Djokovic to be the man to run him close.

“Novak could beat both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal,” Murray told the BBC.

“He looks fired up and motivated and has a great shot along with the other two. He has said himself the mental side was difficult for him last year.

“There was a dip in motivation after winning all four slams in 12 months in 2015-16, which must have taken a lot out of him.
