Wimbledon: Federer Beats Berdych, Faces Cilic In Final

He has won every set he's played this fortnight, the only semifinalist who can make that claim. But Cilic bounced back and then broke for the fourth time in the final game.

Soon 36 years old (August 8), the person who has made a return to the highest level this season, marked by an 18th major title in Melbourne in January, not may be more many.

"I tried what I could do to get it in condition to be able to play".

"I am still in a little bit of shock myself", said Querrey, the first U.S. man to reach a major semifinal since Andy Roddick was the 2009 Wimbledon runner-up.

"It would be a dream come true to win Wimbledon here", said Cilic, who has previously won one grand slam, the US Open in 2014.

Querrey, seeded 24th, and seventh seed Cilic are among the most prolific ace masters in the tournament, having fired down 126 and 105 respectively on their way to the last four. He didn't even look back, he just looked forward and how he executed that fifth set for me was very impressive. It was no surprise to see the match head towards another tiebreak but once again Federer took charge to take it by the same scoreline.

"Marin's a great guy, I know him really well", Federer said.

"I'm feeling a positive on the court". Is that something you're working on with him? Maybe that can have a small part in playing that match.

Serena Williams has declared her love for Andy Murray and said all female athletes should back the British tennis player after he called out a reporter's 'sexist' comment. "I never would have imagined when I was younger that I would have experienced this". He has much more positive energy out there, he's showing that he wants to win the matches.

The climax of the third set occurred in the sixth game. But 6ft 6in Marin Cilic and Sam Querrey were even more renowned for serving big, hitting big from the baseline, and hammering a smash if they found themselves at the net.

Asked if he felt "super-charged" now, Federer said: "The idea was that I would feel my best in the second week of Wimbledon". Serena Williams has accounted for 18 of the 25. I played him a handful of times before.

In spite of Querrey's loss, the Grand Slam-starved United States is optimistic about its future. One by one the opponents fell to the mighty Federer, latest in the row was the 31-year-old #Tomas Berdych.

Asked about being the oldest man to reach the final here for 43 years, Federer said: "It means a lot because Ken Rosewall is a wonderful man. He marked history in a big way for the players".

Federer, though, appears to have taken his six-month break at just the right time, ready to pounce on his rivals' vulnerabilities and injury problems with ruthless precision. And-like that-he is eliminated.
