Wimbledon: Federer Beats Berdych, Faces Cilic In Final

Andy Murray expertly shut down a journalist's casual sexism like the unstoppable boss he is

Cilic was a deserving victor, but there wasn't a person on Centre Court who wasn't just a little bit saddened that Querrey's incredible Wimbledon run was over.

Cilic had to pull out all the stops to bring to an end Sam Querrey's impressive run, but that match will feel like a lazy Sunday morning stroll compared to what awaits the Croat in the final. "I would say I played throughout the match really a high level".

"Draymond was cool", Querrey said after losing to Marin Cilic in the Wimbledon semifinals.

It was fair to wonder what the future held, even for the great Roger Federer, who fell to the ground in the fifth set against Raonic and looked uniquely vulnerable.

Up against arguably the greatest ever player to grace these courts. This is his first Wimbledon final.

"The goal after Wimbledon a year ago, this time around - exactly today to the day nearly when I lost the semis - was to hopefully be back strong for the claycourt season and the grasscourt season leading into Wimbledon".

Federer would be the oldest man to win Wimbledon in the Open era, which dates to 1968; as it is, he's the oldest finalist since Ken Rosewall was 39 in 1974.

There was a meeting of the minds in Centre Court's Royal box - England rugby coach Eddie Jones and cricket's most famous ex-player Sachin Tendulkar from India were spotted in deep conversation during the men's semifinals.


Roger Federer takes on world No.11 Tomas Berdych on Centre Court this afternoon as he hunts his eighth Wimbledon title - and 19th Grand Slam.

US 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.

"It's been a huge build-up for him during his career with the amount of training he's done, the amount of matches that he's played, the conditions that he's played in and what he's put his body through".

Williams is playing for her 6th Wimbledon title and 8th Grand Slam title.

Or the way he extricated himself from a sticky situation down 3-2 in the third, facing break points at 15-40: 107 miles per hour (173 kph) ace, 116 miles per hour (187 kph) ace, 120 miles per hour (194 kph) service victor, 119 miles per hour (192 kph) ace.

Querrey won the first set 7-6 (6), and Cilic won the second 6-4.

Serving for the set, Querrey failed with his first serve and then sent over a slightly nervy 80mph second serve. The score was 6-6 with Cilic on a second serve. He won his 18th Grand Slam in the Australian Open earlier in the year. "That's why I came here this year", Federer said.
