Wimbledon 2014: Order of play for 4 July - Novak Djokovic set to face Andy Murray's conqueror in Grigor Dimitrov while Roger Federer must overcome Milos Raonic

The mens' singles take centre stage on Friday ahead of the finals weekend

The mens' singles final will be determined on Friday as the last four competitors left in the draw face off in back-to-back matches on Centre Court.

Number One seed Novak Djokovic faces by his own admission a difficult task in beating Andy Murray's conqueror Grigor Dimitrov. The 23-year-old Bulgarian destroyed defending champion Murray in straight-sets on Wednesday, and has been tipped to go on to big things which could start this weekend at SW19.

After overcoming his compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka in impressive fashion, Roger Federer will hope to overcome eighth-seed Milos Raonic in the second semi-final and keep alive his hopes and securing an unmatched eighth title at Wimbledon.
