Ruthless Cilic reaches Wimbledon final at 11th attempt

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

Marin Čilić has advanced to the second Grand Slam final of his career after beating American Sam Querrey in the semifinals of Wimbledon, reports on July 14, 2017.

The Swiss, level with Britain's William Renshaw and American Pete Sampras on seven titles, is rejuvenated after taking a six-month break past year and enters the final as the clear favorite having not dropped a set in the tournament.

Should he win his semi-final today, Federer will be one match from becoming the oldest man in the Open era to win Wimbledon. After losing in the Wimbledon semifinals a year ago, he took the rest of 2016 off to let his surgically repaired left knee heal.

Sam Querrey captures First Set 7 (8)-6 (6).

The journalist was midway through asking a question, saying to Murray: " Sam is the first U.S. player to reach a major semi-final since 2009".

The seventh-seeded Croat finished the match with 25 aces and won 88 percent of the points on his first serve.

During this year's Wimbledon, Murray also called on schedulers to give women more opportunities to play on the main show courts, which have featured a disproportionately high number of men's matches.

He wants her to explain how she arrived at her findings, and added that her report had immediate and damaging consequences for the country.

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.

Marin Cilic is serving to Sam Querrey in the opening game on Centre Court. I played great in 2014, 15.

But just as the World No.15 was closing in on the net in an attempt to finish off the rally, Federer somehow managed to flick a backhand victor past Berdych, which left everyone stunned.

In search of an eighth Wimbledon title, Roger Federer will play for a place in his 11th final at the All England Club.

The 23-time grand slam victor, who is expecting her first child later this year, said the men's world number one was hugely popular among players on the women's tour.

Cilic came within a whisker of beating Federer in the quarter-finals past year, but spurned three match points before losing in five sets to the Swiss. The 24th-seeded American eliminated defending champion Andy Murray in the quarterfinals.
