LONDON (AP) — Roger Federer is in the Wimbledon semifinals for the 12th time. The seven-time champion at the All England Club beat Milos Raonic (MEE'-lohsh ROW'-nihch) and will face Tomas Berdych (TOH'-mahs bur-DEEK') on Friday in the semifinals. Berdych advanced when Novak Djokovic (NOH'-vak JOH'-kuh-vich) retired from their match with an injury. Djokovic, a three-time champion at the All England Club, had a trainer work on his right elbow after the first set ended. Berdych reached the Wimbledon final in 2010, losing to Rafael Nadal.
