Andy Murray knows he will have to be at his best to reach another Wimbledon final when he faces seven-time champion Roger Federer in the last four on Friday.

Third seed Murray ended Vasek Pospisil's best run at a grand slam with an emphatic straight-sets victory in the quarter-finals on Wednesday.

Backed by the likes of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and David Beckham, Murray did not let a partisan crowd down as he won 6-4 7-5 6-4 on Centre Court.

Unseeded Canadian Pospisil was unable to continue his adventure at the All England Club as Murray served up yet another impressive display in his home grand slam.

The Scot won his first Wimbledon title two years ago and looks capable of repeating that feat at SW19, but anticipates a major test from Federer.

"I have loved playing here over the years. I have always played some of my best tennis here. I hope I can get to another final, but it will be a tough one," Murray told the BBC.

Murray welcome the presence of royalty for his victory on Wednesday and hopes the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge pay another visit to the All England Club as he eyes a third grand slam title.

"I think Williams and Kate to watch me when I lost in the final, but it would be great to have them back here again."

Federer, who has won 12 and lost 11 of his meetings with Murray, beat Gilles Simon in straight sets to reach another semi-final.
