Roger Federer in confident mood ahead of Wimbledon semi-final

Roger Federer says that his Wimbledon victory over Stanislas Wawrinka has filled him with confidence.

Roger Federer has declared that he is full of confidence ahead of his Wimbledon semi-final against Milos Raonic.

The Swiss defeated Stanislas Wawrinka 3-6 7-6 6-4 6-4 to reach the last four of the tournament, banishing memories of last year's surprise loss to Sergiy Stakhovsky.

"I'm just really pleased I am back strongly. Last year I didn't even come close. It was a major disappointment because I always see Wimbledon as one of my main goals of the season, side by side with the rankings," The Mirror quotes him as saying.

"Last year was rough, I was very disappointed. But I went back to the practice courts. It is good to be back in the semis with a chance to go further, the prospect is very exciting.

"I know there is pressure but the confidence is there. I trust my game and am really excited about the next couple of days."

Raonic saw off Nick Kyrgios in the quarter-finals to set up the encounter with Federer.
