Today at Wimbledon: Everything you need to know about day 13

Today at Wimbledon: Everything you need to know about day 13”

Cilic slumped to his chair, sobbing, as the physio and doctor stood by and for a moment it looked as though the final might end in a retirement for the first time since 1911.

Many other things have changed for Federer since that Centre Court triumph over Mark Philippoussis in 2003.

"Obviously, it was very tough emotionally", said Cilic, whose foot was re-taped by a trainer after the second set. "They did as much as they could, but unfortunately I still felt the pain", he said.

Federer now has eight Wimbledons, breaking the tie of seven he shared with Pete Sampras since 2012, five U.S. Opens, five Australian Opens and a single French Open.

During Wimbledon, he has not lost a set through six matches; the last man to earn the title without ceding a set was Bjorn Borg, 31 years ago. And, as Reuters notes, she's heading into the final "an almost unthinkable 17 years after her first" Wimbledon title.

"I didn't have kids running around, potentially waking me up at night", he said.

The Swiss broke into tears following his victory, overcome by emotions while sat at his bench, as he realised what he had just accomplished. "My heroes walked the grounds here".

"If you give Marin time on the ball, he can finish points nicely".

"I think I played really good tennis throughout the whole tournament".

"I've had some tough ones here, losing to Novak in 2014 and 2015". The court is still playing quite fast.

But he also climbs another rung on the all-time men's and women's list covering all eras, passing Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova and joining Helen Wills Moody in joint fourth place. Hence it is predicted that Roger Federer will win today's match.

"I guess you would have laughed, too, if I told you I was going to win two slams this year. It was a big celebration". He hits his forehand with great power and can dictate from the baseline.

It is only incidental that Marin Cilic is playing against him in this Wimbledon final.

"Williams will face Garbiñe Muguruza, 23, who had little trouble dispatching Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1, on the strength of a reliable first serve and profitable ventures to the net: Muguruza won 18 of the 24 points in which she approached the net". This guy, doesn't really seems is getting any older or anything like that, or slowing down at all. He's nearly two metres tall.

Here's all that you have to know to watch Sunday's last. A few minutes later Federer showed opponents how to use their chances of admission.

Rosewall was one of the thousands of spectators who saw Roger defeat Tomas Berdych to reach the Wimbledon finals.

Liu beat Ann Li 6-2, 5-7, 6-2 in the final on No. 1 Court. "I really want to thank my team, they gave so much strength to me". At the end I got it done. Federer has been winning 83 percent of his first serve points and his backhand is looking better than ever.

Whether the Aussie's upward momentum can be sustained will likely be determined by the release of major Chinese economic data during Monday's session, including Q2 GDP.

Victory vindicated Federer's decision to miss the entire clay court season to prepare for a title challenge in the English capital.

Federer has made serene progress through the fortnight and watched all his usual major rivals fall by the wayside.

Cilic has not had a overwhelming record against the fan-favourite Federer but he would like to take all the positives from his semi-final win against the 36-year-old in the 2014 US Open.
