Second Serve


With the finals for Wimbledon now set -- two four-setters played out with Roger and Andy triumphant -- we list the numbers we thought up while watching the final four:

- Roger Federer has reached his 32nd ATP Grand Slam semifinal, the most of any man in Open Era history. Federer was previously tied with Jimmy Connors at 31. Novak Djokovic has reached his 16th career Grand Slam semifinal, good for 11th most in Open Era history.

- Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is attempting to become the first French man to reach the final since Cedric Pioline in 1997. Pioline fell to Pete Sampras in straight sets. No Frenchman has won Wimbledon since Yvon Petra in 1946, the first time the tournament was held post-World War II.

- With a victory, Novak Djokovic will tie Rafael Nadal for the third-longest streak of consecutive Grand Slam finals reached with five. This is Djokovic's ninth straight Grand Slam semifinal appearance, third-most in Open Era history. Since January of 2011, Djokovic is 37-2 in Grand Slam play with four titles.

- Andy Murray has lost four Grand Slam semifinal matches in a row. Overall, he is 3-6 in Grand Slam semifinal matches.  Tsonga is 1-2 in Grand Slam semifinals.
