Roger Federer has won six Wimbledon titles and was hoping to make this year his seventh. This is the first time since 2002 that Federer hasn’t made it to the Wimbledon finals.

Thomas Berdych beat Roger Federer in four sets 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4, on Centre Court. This is the biggest win of Berdych’s history.

“It’s really tough to show this crowd how I’m just feeling right now, it’s amazing to play on this stadium to play such a great player as Roger is, and come here and be here as a winner is just really amazing,” Berdych said. “If I can just go through my career, it was so far the toughest game to serve and close out the match.”

Federer came into this match with an 8-2 career record against Berdych. He lost one of those two matches at the 2004 Athens Olympics and the second was in Miami this year.

This was Federer’s 25th consecutive Grand Slam quarterfinal. He had won 23 straight, but now has lost two in a row.

Tomas Berdych will move on to the semifinals to play third-seeded Novak Djokovic.
