As Wimbledon glory beckons, Federer muses on life after tennis

Roger Federer Wimbledon 2017 final Roger Federer vs Marin Cilic Marin Cilic

Federer beat Tomas Berdych 7-6 7-6 6-4 in his semi-final on Friday and, on Sunday, the 35-year-old will bid to become the first man to win eight Wimbledon titles and the oldest champion in the Open era.

■ THERE has been quite a lot of chat at this tournament about bringing in a fifth-set tie-break to settle matters.

Querrey took lead after a brief delay late in the opening tiebreaker.

A female spectator needed assistance in the stands during the tiebreaker. The break only lasted a couple of minutes, but Querrey won both points when play resumed, with Cilic missing a pair of backhands.

Up against him is the 6'6 Marin Cilic, a former US Open champion but playing his first Wimbledon finals. But Querrey broke back to force another tiebreaker.

After almost breaking Querrey in his first service game, the Croatian would get the early break in the third game of the set.

Get ready for a "Super Sunday" in July with "Game of Thrones" return, Roger Federer v/s Marin Cilic in Wimbledon's final, British GP at Silverstone circuit, and the announcement of who will play the 13th Doctor.

"I've never done this since the beginning of my career, but to take a long respite, possibly of six months, is something to consider, since this discomfort in the elbow which I ails for a good time does not heal, explained the fourth-best player in the world".

"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. You're not going to always be playing a 100%, but you try to.if I decide to walk out on the court I try to just compete that day", said Williams after her knocking out of sixth seed and local favourite Johanna Konta in the semi-final. When he broke me back, he just played a great game. I have to review specialists and we will try to find a long-term solution.

Cilic is now 5-0 against Querrey and 3-0 against the American at Wimbledon.

Cilic is the second Croat to reach the Wimbledon final, following Goran Ivanisevic's victory in 2001.

The grass, especially on Wimbledon's Centre Court, has always been a flawless canvas for his art. Federer was 18-6 against Berdych, but the 11th-seeded Czech beat Federer in the quarterfinals during his run to the Wimbledon final in 2010.

"[Cilic and Federer] met in the Wimbledon quarterfinals past year, when Cilic took the opening two sets and even held a match point before Federer came all the way back to win, improving to 6-1 head-to-head".

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