Murray, who has entered into the last four for the second consecutive year, will be facing Rafael Nadal in the semi finals.
Nadal, the reigning world number one and the 2008 Wimbledon champ seems to be in the top shape this time, fresh off the slew of victories on the clay court.
"I don't care whether he (Federer) is in or out of the tournament. It doesn't affect me unless I win the next round.
"I'm playing the number one player in the world in the next round, so it would be a bit silly for me to look past him," said Murray indicating that the Swiss ace's exit will not make his journey towards the holy grail of Tennis any easier.
