Petra Kvitova and Eugenie Bouchard will play for the women's title at Wimbledon after both won semifinal matches today at the All England Club. Kvitova won the 2011 title and will return to a Grand Slam final for the first time since capturing the crown three years ago after claiming a 7-6 (8-6), 6-1 victory over fellow Czech Lucie Safarova in today's first semifinal. Bouchard, who lost in semifinals at the Australian Open and French Open earlier this year, advanced to her first career major final with a 7-6 (7-5), 6-2 win over French Open runner-up Simona Halep.
The men's semis will take place Friday after quarterfinal action on Wednesday. Novak Djokovic needed five sets to rally past Croatia's Marin Cilic and will play Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov, who eliminated defending champion Andy Murray in straight sets. Roger Federer will continue his quest for an eighth title at Wimbledon against Canada's Milos Raonic. Federer topped Swiss countrymate and Australian Open champ Stan Wawrinka in four sets on Wednesday, while Raonic also went four in a victory over 19-year-old Aussie Nick Kyrgios, who had previously knocked out Rafael Nadal.
