Wednesday was Day 9 of the 2012 Wimbledon Tennis Championships, and Gentlemen's singles action saw the semifinals take shape. Andy Murray beat David Ferrer to advance, Roger Federer beat Mikhail Youzhny to move on, and Novak Djokovic got the win against Florian Mayer. Djokovic will meet Federer in a semifinal match that could easily be a classic, while Murray will take on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The Gentlemen's semifinals take place on Friday.
There was no Ladies' singles action on Wednesday, but Serena Williams was in action in the Ladies' doubles draw. She and sister Venus beat Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova to advance to the Ladies' doubles quarterfinals. Serena has a singles semifinal match on Thursday against Victoria Azarenka. Azarenka had the luxury of the day off on Wednesday, perhaps lending her an advantage against Williams.
