Wednesday, June 30:  Roger Federer has not lost at Wimbledon before the Final since 2002.  Tomas Berdych knew about it, and played his heart out in a 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 upset of Federer, a winner of 16 grand slam tournaments.  Federer was aiming to win a 7th Wimbledon title, but could not get by Berdych, who was just too powerful.  "Obviously, people think quarters is shocking, but people would die to play in quarterfinal stages of Grand Slam play," he added, fidgeting during his news conference. "It's not something I'm used to doing -- losing in quarterfinals -- because it's not something I've done in the last six years" - Roger Federer

In other action, Andy Murray, Rafael Nada and Novak Djokovich advanced to the Semifinals.  Women's Semifinal action begins on Thursday.
