Third-seeded Federer also made short work of his quarterfinal opponent on Wednesday, getting past No. 26 Mikhail Youzhny of Russia 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 to get his shot at Djokovic in the semifinals on Friday. Federer needed four sets to take care of business against Xavier Malisse of Belgium 7-6, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 in the fourth round of the tournament.
Djokovic, the defending Wimbledon champion, sits as the -270 favorite on the tennis odds at Bovada Sportsbook to get past Federer in the semifinals of the tournament on Friday, with the six-time winner from Switzerland set as the +200 underdog on those lines.
