Roger Federer vs Tomas Berdych prediction
Roger Federer will be looking to build on a routine win over Milos Raonic when he takes the court against Tomas Berdych in the 2017 Wimbledon semis. The Swiss ace is after his ninth consecutive win over the hard-hitting Czech and it remains to be seen if the World No. 15.
The unstoppable king!
Roger Federer has been in a splendid form at the 2017 Wimbledon. The Swiss veteran has defeated the likes of Dolgopolov, Lajovic, Zverev (Misha), Dimitrov and Raonic on his way to the semis and his performance in the 3-0 win over the hard-hitting Canadian was impressive. Federer rolled over Raonic 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 and it is no surprise he is regarded as a hot favourite to win Friday’s clash against Tomas Berdych. Berdych suits Federer and you should bear in mind that the former World No. 1 outclassed the Czech player at the Australian Open earlier this year. The tennis legend is after his eighth Wimbledon title and seeing that all Andy Murray,
Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal have already suffered elimination at the All England Club, there is every chance the Swiss superstar is going to give his fans yet another reason for celebration.
Son of fortune
Tomas Berdych did not make a flying start to the season, but the Czech player has been producing fine performances at the 2017 Wimbledon. It is well known that the World No. 15 enjoys playing on grass, but nobody expected that he would eliminate Serbian ace Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals of the Grand Slam tournament. It has to be noted, though, that Nole was forced to retire due to injury and that is the main reason why Tomas Berdych set up a meeting with Roger Federer in the Wimbledon semis. It has been four years since the Czech player recorded his last win over Federer and it remains to be seen if he is capable of putting an end to his eight-game losing run in encounters against the tournament favourite. Tomas Berdych has yet to win the Grand Slam trophy, but he did well to make it to the Wimbledon final back in 2010. Berdych was beaten by Rafael Nadal in the title game and, taking everything into account, he has slim chances of repeating the success. However, the big-serving Czech outplayed Roger Federer in their last meeting on grass (2010 Wimbledon) and that is giving his fans a reason for optimism ahead of Friday’s clash.

Roger Federer vs Tomas Berdych Betting Pick
Roger Federer has found his best form of late. The No. 1 favourite seems to be on top of his game at the moment and seeing that Tomas Berdych was more than fortunate to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals, I believe that there is a big value in betting on the Swiss ace. Beating Roger Federer on grass is easier said than done and, taking everything into account, Tomas Berdych can start packing his bags.
Pick: Federer to win 3-0
