Federer edges closer to record 8th Wimbledon title

Federer edges closer to record 8th Wimbledon title

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.

'Novak knows that on Monday I will be at Wall Street, and he knows that this is my path. Many people asks if we will keep working together, but my job prevents me a little bit from travelling. Roger hasn't lost a set in the tournament, but he was definitely tested in the semi-finals against Tomas Berdych. "I'm happy to have a day off to reflect on what I've done at the tournament".

Five-time champion Williams is the oldest woman to reach the final since Martina Navratilova did it in 1994 and will take on Spain's Garbine Muguruza for the title on Saturday. But Berdych hit back to make it 4-4 after Federer sent a second serve fractionally wide.

"I know how much it means to other players to go out and play on centre court at Wimbledon at any given time".

Federer won the Australian Open in January for his record-extending 18th Grand Slam title and first major anywhere in 4½ years.

Roger Federer has his sights set on making more history at Wimbledon.

Federer turns 36 next month and is the oldest Wimbledon finalist in the men's singles since Ken Rosewall in 1974.

Cilic dropped the opening set against Querrey, but soon found himself holding a two-sets-to-one lead.

"It was a good match. I'm so close now, so I have just got to stay focused". "So, here I am again to support Roger", said the batting maestro.

Federer has now reached 29 grand slam finals and for the third time in his career has reach the Wimbledon final without dropping a set, having also achieved the feat in 2006 and 2008. This year he gained revenge over the Canadian in the quarters for the loss of just 12 games.

Querrey was playing his own first grand slam semi-final at the 42nd attempt, but the American looked far from out of place. He has spoken up for women's issues and women's rights, especially in tennis, forever and he does it again. The 35-year-old chasing his dream of winning a record eight Wimbledon titles defeated Berdych in straight sets 7-6 (4) 7-6 (4) 6-4. For the time being, it seems like absolutely no problem, which is wonderful.

6/7 - Federer and Cilic have met seven times previously, with Federer winning six of those matches.
