Result: John Isner powers past Milos Raonic to reach Wimbledon semi-finals

John Isner will face Kevin Anderson at the semi-finals of Wimbledon thanks to a four-set victory over Milos Raonic on Wednesday evening.

John Isner has reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon thanks to a four-set win against Milos Raonic on Wednesday evening.

In a battle of two of the sport's top servers, the American recorded a battling 6-7(5) 7-6(7) 6-4 6-3 victory over his Canadian opponent.

As a result, Isner will face Kevin Anderson - who defeated top seed Roger Federer earlier on Wednesday - in the last four.

Raonic took the first set on a tie-break, while Isner took the second in similar fashion, both players putting on a show of ferocious, unrelenting tennis.

There was a break of serve in the third, enabling the American - whose serve is yet to be broken at Wimbledon this year - to take the honours.

With Raonic feeling the effects of a thigh problem that needed heavy strapping, his opponent came home in the fourth to secure a tie with Federer's conqueror.
