Roger Federer stays on course for eighth Wimbledon title

Roger Federer stays on course for eighth Wimbledon title”

"Obviously I'm going to look back as well", Cilic said. It was a time when his game was plagued by inconsistency, and many of the weapons he relies on now he had not fully developed.

Asked about Martinez's contribution, Muguruza said: "I think I'm here because of the hard work I've done before". But Rosewall - at that time the greatest player never to have won Wimbledon - was soundly thrashed by the 21-year-old Jimbo.

In 1997, when Venus Williams made her Wimbledon debut, a three-year-old girl in Venezuela picked up a tennis racket for the first time. Cilic took a two sets to love lead but failed to see the match out, allowing Federer to rebound for a 6-7 4-6 6-3 7-6 6-3 win. "I'm planning till the end of the year, then I know what I'm going to play at the beginning of next year". He also said, "I believe this is his home court", an acknowledgment that Federer, while Swiss, is also British as well as American, Australian and French, among others.

Being two sets up, he went over the Czech in the third set forcing him to improvise. At times Federer displayed the superb shot-making that has earned legions of fans across the globe, but often, he did not have to as Raonic was his own worst enemy. "That would be a horrible feeling, to be honest".

The roof over Centre Court is closed for the women's final at Wimbledon.

Spain's Garbine Muguruza celebrates after defeating Venus Williams of the United States in the Women's Singles final match on day twelve at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London Saturday, July 15, 2017. He heads out of the tournament still trying to reach his first Grand Slam final. In the quarterfinals, he faced off against Gilles Muller of Luxembourg, who conquered Nadal in their fourth round epic. "I tried my best to do the same things you do, but I think there will be other opportunities". So they came up with a kind of gloomy gasp, as if Prince Andrew, who was in attendance, had just broken wind.

Both Cilic and Federer have great weapons in their serves. Is everybody happy on Tour? Roger is playing maybe one of the best tennis of his career at the moment, having a great season. The magic doesn't happen just because somebody comes in and all of a sudden you are incredible. No. It was so long ago that he had a ponytail, a matter that seems to make him cringe these days, at 35. "It's just important to stay on track with the plan". Federer's ability to deal with that, particularly on his forehand side will arguably be key. If he can control Cilic's power, then he will win the match.
