Roger Federer sets sights on more Wimbledon history

Roger Federer sets sights on more Wimbledon history

This was Cilic's 11th attempt to reach the Wimbledon final and no man has taken longer.

Instead, the 82-year-old Australian was as awestruck as anybody on Friday as he sat with his grandson in the royal box watching Federer beat Tomas Berdych to become the oldest men's singles finallist here since Rosewall in 1974.

"It's great, but it doesn't give me the title quite yet". Their only clash since then came at Wimbledon past year, where Cilic led by two sets before Federer came back to tally the final win of his injury-shortened season. "Just to stay calm and speak to the team, to take another decision that we were going to sit out and wait", Federer told the BBC after his 7-6 (4) 7-6 (4) 6-4 win.

Federer beat Berdych for the 19th time in 25 matches as he reached the title match without losing a set.

Add in the fact he has been nearly unstoppable this season, winning four of the six events he had entered - including an 18th grand slam title at the Australian Open in January - many pundits and rivals believe Federer is playing some of his best tennis this year.

"He will come here to win the Rogers Cup, while Federer is the flawless player now". For the curious, he is 13-3 in tiebreakers in finals, splitting two of them in the 2006 victory as well as the 2014 and 2015 losses against Novak Djokovic.

He says it's "a thrill for me because I look up to those guys in a massive way".

In seven meetings with the tall Croat, Federer has lost just once - in the semi-final of the 2014 U.S. Open when Cilic went on to win the title.

"Last year against (Cilic) was brutal".

An 18-time Grand Slam champion, the most successful male player in the game and the greatest for some, Federer has nothing left to prove.

"Giving your body rest from time to time is a good thing, as we see now", Federer said. "I hope I can play one more good match".

And most of the 15,000 or so people in attendance were pulling for him. That was evident throughout Friday, from the cries of "Go, Roger!" to the roars of approval and thunderous applause that greeted some of his best efforts on a day when he was not necessarily at his vintage, wondrous best.

Berdych applied more pressure in the second set but could not break, and three clean winners on the forehand from Federer put him in control of the second tie-break. Well, we'll see what happens to Djokovic and Murray, but I know that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have been looking forward to coming to Montreal.
