Roger Federer in record 11th Wimbledon final after victory over Thomas Berdych

Roger Federer in record 11th Wimbledon final after victory over Thomas Berdych”

The journalist was midway through asking a question, saying to Murray: " Sam is the first US player to reach a major semi-final since 2009". Honestly, (it) was difficult to come past him for anybody-especially in the big matches.

Cilic and Querrey, both 6-foot-6, rode the strength of their powerful serves.

Another added: "Is there a men's best dressed competition too?" But Cilic bounced back and then broke for the fourth time in the final game. "We love Andy Murray".

In reaching a record-extending 11th final, Federer will also be contesting the 29th grand slam decider of his incomparable career.

"We see nothing wrong with promoting athleticism while celebrating Wimbledon's wonderful dress code". "I definitely don't see why I won't be a position to win a title like this one", she said.

Seeded 10th, Williams came into the match 8-1 in her previous nine semifinal appearances at the grass-court major.

The American turned down mandatory interviews with the BBC, which is the host broadcaster, and her national broadcaster ESPN following a quarter-final win against Jelena Ostapenko on Tuesday.

Williams will lose $7,500 US (£5,800) of her prize money as a result, the International Tennis Federation said.

It is not the first time that Williams has been fined for avoiding media obligations at a Grand Slam event.

She will face Garbine Muguruza in Saturday's final, targeting the top prize of £2.2million. I hope he's not going to play that good.

Williams has attended every press conference during the championships.

With Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Rafa Nadal all having fallen by the wayside at Wimbledon this year, Federer will face Marin Cilic in the Centre Court showdown.

She was not alone in being fined, with 36-year-old Swiss Martina Hingis receiving a $3,000 (£2,300) penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct, after hitting her racket against the grass in frustration during a women's doubles quarter-final played on Centre Court on Wednesday.

Yet when England sensibly decided to give crucial players like Stuart Broad and Jonny Bairstow a rest from county matches, the instant reaction was angry disapproval from pundits and spectators.

She has also been competing at Wimbledon in mixed doubles with Great Britain's Jamie Murray. Rugby union is another sport in conflict about the damaging burden on its stars.

One onlooker said: "It appeared as if they were supporting different people".

Sam's supermodel Who is Abby Dixon? "You know, kind of deflated me a little bit".

When Cilic won his only Slam in New York three years ago, he demolished Federer in straight sets in the semi-finals. The last all-American final was in 1979 when Mary Lou Piatek beat Alycia Moulton. She also won the French Open last year. Their last match at the All England Club, in 2012, went five sets and Cilic won 17-15 in the fifth. Her last one came in 2008.
