DEFENDING CHAMPION RAFAEL Nadal advanced to the semifinals at Wimbledon by beating Mardy Fish 6-3, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 Wednesday.

Nadal is 31-2 at Wimbledon since 2006. He lost in the final in 2006 and ’07, but then won the following year. He missed the 2009 edition because of injury and won again in 2010.

Nadal hurt his left foot in his fourth-round win over Juan Martin del Potro, but he practiced Tuesday and did not appear to be hampered against Fish.

The top-seeded Nadal will face Andy Murray in the semifinals Friday.

Murray reached the Wimbledon semi-finals for the third successive year with an utterly straightforward 6-3 6-4 6-4 victory over unseeded Spaniard Feliciano Lopez.
