LONDON (AP) If the rain holds off, the four men's semifinalists will be decided at Wimbledon on Day 9 of the grass-court major.

Defending champion Andy Murray will open play on Centre Court against Sam Querrey. Seven-time champion Roger Federer will follow against Milos Raonic, the man that beat Federer in last year's semifinals.

On No. 1 Court, Gilles Muller will be first against Marin Cilic. Muller advanced to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon for the first time by beating Nadal in five sets in the fourth round.

In the other match in the second biggest stadium at the All England Club, three-time champion Novak Djokovic will take on 2010 finalist Tomas Berdych.

Centre Court has a roof, but No. 1 Court does not.
