Federer beats Berdych to stand on the brink of Wimbledon history

Federer beats Berdych to stand on the brink of Wimbledon history”

The trips to the finals also moves both players up one of the most elite lists in tennis.

'It's extremely difficult. I think I played really good tennis throughout the whole tournament.

And no, the Pimm's can't take total credit for that either.

Cilic won the US Open in 2014, a rare triumph from a player outside of the big four. At 2-3, Federer was down 15-40 with Berdych having two crucial break points which he squandered thanks to four big aces served down the T by the great King Federer.

Bjorkman said he's confident that Cilic will be ready for the final. "I never would have imagined when I was younger that I would have experienced this". "But the plan was always to hopefully be strong later on in my career".

See if you can spot it as she discusses how everything came together for her this fortnight.

Roger Federer eased past Czech Republic's Tomas Berdych in the semifinals of Wimbledon yesterday to reach his eleventh final of the Grand Slam event in straight sets, becoming the oldest player to do so after Ken Rosewall featured in the finals in 1974 when he was 39. Cilic said he needed time to mature and gain confidence. It is a rematch of last year's quarters, in which the Croat led by two sets to love only to fall in five. If Federer walks away Wimbledon champion, he will move up to No. 3 in the ATP rankings for his first top-3 position in nearly a year.

U.S. dreams of seeing both a male and female representative in the final were shattered Friday when Marin Cilic defeated American Sam Querrey 6-7 (6), 6-4, 7-6 (3), 7-5.

That was part of a 19-1, three-title start to 2017, before he took another break, sitting out the clay-court circuit and the French Open again. "Sam played at a high level especially in the first set".

Venus Williams has been fined $7,500 for skipping an obligatory interview after her semifinal match against Johanna Konta on Thursday.

Some are suggesting that Federer is playing as well as when he was world No 1, despite his 35-years of age.

"It's been a fun run", the 29-year-old who hails from California said in typically understated fashion.

Cilic, 28, is into his second major final after winning the 2014 US Open.

Failure in the third knocked the air out of Querrey's lungs, but he valiantly continued with guile and endeavour.

What counts against Laver in the debate - before you even factor in the effect on the game of the changes via technology and training - is the depth of competition in the opposing eras.

At times it's hard to remember that Roger Federer is a mere mortal.
