Kate Middleton Gets Roger Federer To Grand Slam Semi-Final

Roger Federer has admitted that seeing Kate and Prince William in the Royal Box on Wimbledon Centre Court today (July 4) helped spur him on to a record 32nd Grand Slam semi-final appearance.

Federer, the six-time champion at the All England Club, walked all over Russia's Mikhail Youzhny 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 to set-up a semi-final clash with world number one Novak Djokovic. And he puts his good luck down to seeing Kate and Wills in the audience!

Also in the Royal Box were Australian tennis legend Rod Laver, 50 years after he completed the Grand Slam, as well as golden couple Andre Agassi and wife Steffi Graf, both former Wimbledon champions. No pressure, then!

According to AFP, the tennis star said: "I really actually do enjoy seeing legends coming out, following today's tennis. Royals coming out, it's inspiring, too, in some ways, believe it or not."

"It's great for Wimbledon. It's great for the players. It's just nice to see that the Royal Box is always full. It's never empty for us. And if it is, you know they're going to come back, they're not here just to drink champagne and tea in the back.

"They really do come for the tennis. We feel that on Centre Court, and I do feel that. That's probably one of the reasons why I play well on Centre Court."

Federer had nothing but nice things to say about the Royal couple: "I met Kate for the first time. William I've met again after Australia. They were very nice, very friendly."

The Swiss star got to chat to Kate and Wills, though he wouldn't reveal what about.

"Had a bit of a chat. What exactly, it's not so important I don't think. But it was a nice conversation."

The royal couple received a rapturous welcome from the crowd as they arrived in the front row of the box, having already proved a hit around the All England Club.

"My life is complete!," tweeted German women's player Anna-Lena Groenefeld. "I don't care that we won the Mixed! Prince William said hi to me! I was so excited I won my service game!????"

We're so jealous!
