Matteo Berrettini advanced into his first Wimbledon semi-final after a brilliant performance, but his match point blunder had the whole stadium laughing and this included Aussie girlfriend Ajla Tomljanovic.

Berrettini became the first Italian man in 61 years to reach the Wimbledon semifinals when he beat Felix Auger-Aliassime in four sets.

The seventh-seeded Berrettini won 6-3, 5-7, 7-5, 6-3 on No.1 Court against a player he called "one of my best friends on tour."

He is the second Italian man to ever make the last four at Wimbledon, after Nicola Pietrangeli in 1960.

Berrettini had the support of Australian tennis star Tomljanovic, who lost to fellow compatriot Ash Barty in the quarter-final, during the match in his player's box.

But the highlight came on match point.

Berrettini had three match points and thought he had served an ace down the 'T'.

The Italian dropped his racquet and raised his hands in celebration.

But with history beckoning Berrettini was the only one in the stadium not to realise the serve had been called a let.

Berrettini turned to the chair umpire when he noticed no one in the crowd had jumped to their feet.

The Italian had a bemused look on his face when he was told he would have to serve again and his opponent Auger-Aliassime couldn't help but laugh.

The broadcast then turned its attention to Tomljanovic who at first looked sheepish, before she couldn't contain her laughter.

Berrettini to face Roger Federer conquerer

Berrettini will face Hubert Hurkacz after he defeated Roger Federer 6-3, 7-6 (7/4) 6-0 in a match that marked the first time ever that Federer suffered a bagel at the All England Club.

It was only the eight-time Wimbledon champion's 14th defeat at the tournament in 119 matches and his first straight-sets loss since an opening round exit against Mario Ancic in 2002.
