The most one-sided Wimbledon semifinal of the Open Era, but everyone expected that Federer  would win it in straight sets against the 34-year-old Swede , who had played just one major semifinal, nine years before. There was *3:2 for the Swiss when he won 11 games in a row. In the opening two sets he seemed to be extremely focused, in the 3rd set he relaxed, and I guess he played it without any specific pattern. Five years earlier, an inexperienced Federer defeated Bjorkman at Wimbledon in straight sets as well (7-6, 6-3, 7-6), then it was a serve-and-volley battle.
