Rafael Nadal's and Venus Williams' early exits paired along with dominant performances from Roger Federer and Serena Williams throughout have made for a Wimbledon of epic proportions.

All four semifinal matches will be televised on ESPN, with the semifinals of the women's draw taking place on Thursday, July 5 and the men's semifinals on Friday, July 6. Coverage for both days of semifinal action begins at 8 a.m. EDT. For those without television access, the matches will also be featured on ESPN3.com.

John McEnroe, Darren Cahill, Cliff Drysdale and Chris Fowler will all take part in calling each of the four matches.

These semifinals will be no different at the 2012 Championships. On the men's side No. 1 Djokovic and No. 3 Federer are squaring off as well as No. 4 Andy Murray and No. 5 Jo-Wilfred Tsonga on the other side of the draw.

Meanwhile, in the women's draw, it will be No. 2 Victoria Azarenka against No. 6 Serena Williams and No. 8 Angelique Kerber against No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska. 

On the men's side you have Murray, still without a Grand Slam to his name, with a grand opportunity to play in the final with Tsonga standing in his way. Tsonga has played a terrific tournament up until the semifinals, yet Murray's dominance will seal the deal for the talent. Federer and Djokovic will face off in what some would say is the match that boasts the two most dominant men's players on grass.

The women's side features Azarenka, who will be looking to take down Williams in hopes of grabbing the No. 1 spot in the World. Kerber will attempt to continue a star-studded run against Radwanska and her mean forehand.

With semifinals that are as intriguing as they come, expect this to be an impressive two days of tennis at the Wimbledon Championships.
