Roger Federer still a little more in the legend

Berdych: "I'm wearing Novak shoes because the other shoes just doesn't fit well to me, so that's why I have to play in the shoes, that they are fitting well and doesn't hurt my feets".

Cilic had his foot retaped at the start of the third set and at least made the scoreline respectable, but there was no doubt who was going to emerge victorious.

"My heroes walked the grounds here and walked the courts here". He is considered as the greatest player of all time by a lot of tennis players and coaches.

Federer has adapted to these changes, not allowing the big hitters on the tour to prevail with additional power.

Do you something awesome to share with the world?

Serving to stay in the set, Cilic saved a set point with a big serve, but on the second set point, he produced a double fault to hand Federer the first set, 6-3.

Federer broke through in the first set, taking a 3-2 lead after Cilic was unable to fend off a third breakpoint.

U.S. 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.

"I'm in for a tough one". But it wasn't enough to stop the match and close to roof. On Wednesday there's the Westpac leading index, and on Thursday there's the monthly jobs data. I think if you're not, it's kind of uncool.

Watson said the clash would be "just another match" after her semi-final victory. The court is still playing quite fast. Cilic is wanting to hold tight sufficiently long against Federer to end up noticeably the second Croatian player to win Wimbledon. "It was very difficult to deal with it". Now a formidable weapon, he is regularly able to find the corners, and at great pace. "I love this tournament", added the Swiss, who has been tied with Pete Sampras on seven Wimbledon titles since beating Andy Murray in the 2012 final.

And that, judging by the reactions, is precisely what the fans wanted to see. He's nearly two metres tall.

"That's what I did throughout my whole career, I never gave up during a match, and that's what I did today", said Cilic. With five he has more titles this season than anyone else.

The incomparable Swiss turned his 11th Wimbledon final into a procession as tearful seventh seed Cilic, battling his nerves and a bloody blister, suffered a torrid afternoon. I know that my level can even go higher.

"It is cruel sometimes, but Cilic fought well and he's a hero", Federer told the BBC.

It is unknown if the pair will be ready for the United States competition, but their talents are more suited to the conditions and surface than Federer's. Federer has been winning 83 percent of his first serve points and his backhand is looking better than ever. Federer chose to skip the clay season altogether to be fresh for grass, a move that now seems like a masterstroke given how both Murray and Djokovic succumbed to injuries.

The trainer and doctor were summoned before Cilic hid his head in his towel in a desperate attempt to compose himself.

There was to be no sympathy from over the net though.

On three of the four previous occasions the pair has achieved the feat, Federer or Nadal has also gone on to win the US Open.
