Milos Raonic vs Roger Federer prediction
A place in the 2017 Wimbledon semi-finals will be at stake when Milos Raonic and Roger Federer face each other at All England Club on Wednesday. Raonic defeated Federer at the last year’s tournament, meaning that the Swiss veteran is hungry for revenge.
Milos eyeing first ever Grand Slam trophy
Milos Raonic did remarkably well to make it to the 2016 Wimbledon final, but home favourite Andy Murray proved to be a big catch for the hard-hitting Canadian. The big server is on a quest to go all the way at the 2017 tournament, but he faces an uphill task in the quarter-finals against Roger Federer. The World No. 7 set up a meeting with the Swiss superstar by beating the likes of Struff, Youznhy, Ramos and Zverev, but his performance in the come-from-behind triumph over the German rising star was anything but brilliant. Milos Raonic outplayed Roger Federer at the 2016 Wimbledon, but considering that the former World No. 1 has been in a splendid form this season, it is no surprise the Canadian big server is considered underdog in Wednesday’s clash. It has to be noted that Raonic is after his third ever Grand Slam semi-final.
Roger Federer is in the twilight of his career, but he is still capable of producing tremendous displays at this level. The 18-time Grand Slam champion proved his worth at the Australian Open earlier this year, with the 35-year-old beating his old rival Rafael Nadal in the final of the major tournament. Roger Federer missed the French Open with injury, but it seems as if his injury is in the past. The Swiss veteran has been in a terrific form at the 2017 Wimbledon and he has yet to lose a set at the grass-court tournament. Federer has defeated the likes of Dolgopolov, Lajovic, Zverev (Misha) and Dimitrov on his way to the semis, but Wednesday’s game against Milos Raonic will be anything but a walk in the park for the seven-time Wimbledon champion. Roger was outclassed by Raonic at the last year’s tournament and, no doubt, the tennis legend is going to leave his heart on the court in order to get his revenge on the Canadian. Roger Federer recorded his last win over Milos Raonic at the 2015 Indian Wells and you should bear in mind that he is after his tenth victory over the big-serving giant.
- Roger Federer has yet to lose a set at the 2017 Wimbledon

Milos Raonic vs Roger Federer betting pick
Roger Federer is brimming with confidence ahead of Wednesday’s clash against Milos Raonic. The Swiss superstar feels like home at Wimbledon and he is desperate to get his revenge on the hard-hitting Canadian for the loss at the 2016 tournament. However, seeing that Milos Raonic is considered a grass courter as well, I would not be surprised if he wins at least one set in the quarter-finals of the Grand Slam tournament.
Pick: Over 3.5 sets
