Roger Federer believes that he has to focus on his own game before he can challenge the tactics of Milos Raonic in their semi-final clash at Wimbledon.

Roger Federer has admitted that he has to trust in his own game to defeat Milos Raonic to reach the Wimbledon final.

The 32-year-old can record a historic eighth-title win if he wins his next two matches at the All England Club, but knows that he will face a tough task to beat the big-serving Canadian.

Federer told reporters: "Clearly on the grass with a serve like that it's never going to be an easy match.

"That's where you sort of go back to your own game and say: 'I'll take care of my own serves and see what I can do on the return.' That's my mindset right now."

Federer faces Raonic in their semi-final clash on Centre Court later today.
