3 talking points from day 11 at Wimbledon

3 talking points from day 11 at Wimbledon

The Rockhampton Rocket was peerless throughout the 1960s and had the set-up for elite tennis been different in that decade, Federer would still be chasing the Aussie leftie's Grand Slam title haul. At 5-3, the Swiss produced a stunning forehand flicked pass that had the 15,000 spectators on Centre Court gasping, and moments later he served out victory in his 42nd Grand Slam semi-final.

Q. In your words, can you try to describe what it's like for you, what's happening with you when you play against a player like Federer?

Cilic made just a single double fault on his way to the win, and Querrey's 26 unforced errors were the difference in the contest. Cilic can't be sure that he'll have a chance like this again. He has been a steady quarterfinalist over the years, but this year he managed to get over the hump.

At 23, Garbine Muguruza is 14 years younger than her Wimbledon finals opponent, Venus Williams.

The No 7 seed overcame Andy Murray's conqueror Sam Querrey yesterday by a 6-7 (6), 6-4, 7-6 (6), 7-5 scoreline to become only the second player from the Balkan nation to grace an SW19 singles final and he said last night that watching Ivanisevic win here back in 2001 was still indelibly etched upon his memory. "Obviously I'm going to look back as well", Cilic said. He is already the first man to reach 11 Grand Slam finals at the same event, while his 29th Grand Slam final will put him seven clear of Nadal, the second man on the all-time list. "I admire Roger so much", Rosewall told Reuters in an interview. So I'm in for a tough one.

Federer is the player with the better hard-court abilities and, after Wimbledon, that's the surface that all the big-points tournaments will be played on.

The 35-year-old stands on the brink of more history after reaching his 11th Wimbledon final from 19 participations. But tennis wasn't the worldwide sport in the 1960s that it is now, and the ATP Tour has a vast swag of top-drawer players from around the globe. Interestingly, Cilic's first final, US Open 2014 was against Roger Federer, which the Croatian player won comfortably. "It was a brutal match".

In both the 2014 U.S. Open semifinals and the 2016 Wimbledon quarterfinals, the last two times he played Cilic, things got thorny. Age waits for no man, and the powers of the big five are on the wane.

'He has shown before that he knows how to beat Roger and how to win a Grand Slam'.
