Roger Federer has more history on the line at the All England Club.

If Federer beats Marin Cilic in the quarterfinals on Wednesday, he will equal Jimmy Connors' record of reaching the Wimbledon semifinals 11 times.

Federer is chasing a record eighth Wimbledon singles title. He's currently tied with Pete Sampras and 1880s player William Renshaw with seven.

The third-seeded Federer will be first up on Centre Court against Cilic, a Crotian who beat him in straight sets in their last meeting, in the 2014 U.S. Open semifinals.

Second up on Centre will be No. 2 Andy Murray, the 2013 champion, facing No. 12 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

On Court 1, sixth-seeded Milos Raonic was paired against No. 28 Sam Querrey, followed by No. 10 Tomas Berdych against No. 32 Lucas Pouille.
