Federer eyes ninth Wimbledon title but wary of Nadal threat

Borna Coric explains clear plan to upset Roger Federer

He was the first Croatian to reach the final at Halle and he now owns two titles after winning in Marrakech in 2017.

In the end, it was a well deserved win for Borna Coric.

Federer suffered a shocking 6-7 (6-8), 6-3, 2-6 defeat to Borna Coric at the Halle Open final. "I came here to just get a few matches before Wimbledon". "It's been an unbelievable week for me", said Coric.

Despite a 20-match winning streak on Grass the world no.1 was unable to overcome the 21-year-old defended two set points to win the first set 7-6 (6).

"I actually thought I played maybe my best match of the week today". So it's a bit unfortunate there.

Luis Suarez Free-Kick Give Uruguay Lead Against Russia
Match-winner against Egypt, Jose Gimenez is out for Uruguay , whilst Alan Dzagoev is still out with a hamstring injury. Two goals in the first 23 minutes and a red card for Russian Federation a little later killed off the game early.

However, the Swiss superstar's 11th Wimbledon final, and 29th at the majors, will also be remembered for the moving sight of the popular Cilic breaking down in tears after slipping 3-0 behind in the second set.

- A seventh Wimbledon title for Federer and 17th major as Murray, bidding to become the first British male victor of a Slam title since Fred Perry in 1936, is left in tears.

Rafael Nadal holds a 50-point edge over Federer in the rankings and will hold onto No. 1 for at least the next three weeks. He looked every bit the Wimbledon contender as he aims to return to the stage where he lost to Federer in the final a year ago.

Both defeats were painful for Cilic, who lost a final set tie-break against Feliciano Lopez at Queen's and broke down in tears during his injury-plagued Wimbledon loss to Roger Federer. "[During] the whole whole week I was serving really well", said the 21-year-old Croatian.

The victory at the tournament will be a big positive point, ahead of Wimbledon, for the Swiss maestro who dropped out of clay season to stay fresh for the grass-court tournament.
