Wimbledon: Roger Federer beats Thomas Berdych, reaches final

The Serb was forced to retire through injury as Berdych led 7-6 2-0, and the 11 seed seemingly felt bad enough on Djokovic that he decided to pay tribute to him during his match with Federer.

"That's why I came here this year".

Again Berdych's spirit was crushed as he watched three consecutive forehand winners fly by as Federer again proved ruthless on the way to moving two sets clear. He is the 2014 US Open champion and will probably harass him more than Berdych was able to.

Mario Ancic spoke for the first time about his relationship with Novak Djokovic after refusing several interviews in the mid-tournament.

A victory will make Federer No. 1 in the world, his best ranking since August 2016.

He now is one-match away from holding two of the game's major four prizes for the first time since 2010 having begun the year by claiming the Australian Open title.

"I don't see anything that would indicate really Roger is getting older or anything like that", Berdych, who went down 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 6-4, told reporters.

At 6-foot-6, Cilic is the tallest man to reach the final at Wimbledon in the Open Era.

Federer, on the other hand, is looking for his 19th Grand Slam title and his eighth at Wimbledon. Roger Federer will try to win his 8th Wimbledon title which would surpass Pete Sampras and William Renshaw.

Tendulkar, who was a part of the Cricket Advisory Committee that appointed Ravi Shastri as India's new coach, will now look to unwind at SW19. Federer, the favorite, had to fight off some tiebreaks, but he prevailed over Tomas Berdych, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 6-4. "He's just proving his greatness in our sport". "I thought it was close", said Federer.

The 11th seed pushed Federer hard on Centre Court but whenever the glimpse of an opportunity arose he found the evergreen 35-year-old tantalisingly out of reach.

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. In their last duel, at the end of march in Miami, Federer had had to dismiss two balls of the match and had then won the tournament in florida.

6/7 - Federer and Cilic have met seven times previously, with Federer winning six of those matches.

Sunday's final will be the fourth Grand Slam meeting between Federer and Cilic and the second straight year the pair have met at Wimbledon.

Manchester City have completed the signing of England star Kyle Walker for an amount of £45mn.
