London, July 3 : He may have reached his first Wimbledon semi-final but Marat Safin insists that he stands no chance against five-time champion Roger Federer.
Safin defended Feliciano Lopez to advance to his first Wimbledon semifinal, where he will face Federer.
Despite the win, Safin doesn't think he has much of a chance against the 26-year-old champ.
"Just because I've won four matches doesn't mean I have a chance against Roger," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
"To beat Federer you need to be like Nadal and run around the place like a rabbit.
"We're on a different level - I think it will be too difficult for me to beat him," he added.
