Roger Federer moved into a 12th Wimbledon semifinal and within touching distance of a record eighth title Wednesday as Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic crashed out on a dramatic day at the All England Club.However, defending champion Murray, severely restricted by a right hip injury, was dethroned by Sam Querrey 3-6, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-1 .Three-time winner Djokovic was also heading for the exit after the second seed quit his quarterfinal against Tomas Berdych with a right elbow injury while trailing 7-6 (2), 2-0 .It means that Federer will face Berdych in Friday's semifinals while Querrey will tackle Marin Cilic after the former U.S. Open champion put out Gilles Muller, the conqueror of Rafael Nadal, 3-6, 7-6 (6), 7-5, 5-7, 6-1 . One year after knocking out 2015 champion Djokovic in the third round, 29-year-old Querrey, the world No. 28, accounted for Murray.Djokovic said that a right elbow injury was to blame for his retirement against 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Berdych, a player Djokovic had defeated 25 times over 27 previous meetings.
