Previous Meeting

Murray beat Raonic at Queen’s just last month in their first ever meeting on grass but it was a tricky match. Raonic won the first set in a tie-break before Murray took the second and third sets. In total, they have played each other nine times, with Murray leading six wins to Raonic’s three. Crucially, Murray has won the last five in a row.

Semi Final Quarter Final Results

Murray made it to his third Wimbledon final with a ruthless 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 demolition of Czech 10th seed Tomas Berdych, while Raonic stunned Roger Federer with a 6-3, 6-7 (3/7), 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 victory yesterday. Raonic’s first win on grass against a top 10 opponent shattered Federer’s hopes of claiming a record eighth All England Club crown and 18th major.

Key Facts

Raonic, a 25-year-old Canadian, had learned from his loss to Federer in the semifinals here two years ago and his loss to Murray in a five-set semifinal at the Australian Open this year. The 34-year-old Swiss star was on the brink of becoming the oldest All England Club finalist in 42 years when he took a two sets to one lead. But the big-serving Raonic hit back to avenge his 2014 Wimbledon semi-final loss against Federer.
