Milos Raonic reveals that he is not going to be fazed by the reputation of Roger Federer when he faces the seven-time Wimbledon champion in their semi-final clash.

Milos Raonic has revealed that he is determined to put in a breakthrough performance when he faces Roger Federer in the semi-finals of Wimbledon.

The 23-year-old can reach the first Grand Slam final of his career if he defeats the seven-time champion at the All England Club, and he has admitted that he is not fazed by Federer's reputation.

Raonic told reporters: "I've been giving myself the possibility to face these top guys more consistently. I know each time I get closer. I understand more what I need to turn those results around.

"I'm not stepping out today against the seven-times Wimbledon champion, I'm not playing a 32-year-old man, I'm not playing a father of two sets of twins.

"I'm not playing the guy that's won whatever he's won. I'm playing a guy that is standing in the way of what I want to achieve."

Raonic faces Federer on Centre Court later today.
