Game, set and match, Mr. Federer
1 week ago

He closes it out with an ace. Grand Slam number 19 and Wimbledon number 8 for Roger Federer. 

Cilic was just no match for the Swiss champion today. Federer wins the Wimbledon without dropping a set. It's been 14 years since he first won it in 2003. And he's still there, dominating men's tennis this year, at the age of 35 like it's no big deal.

Both players have begun with fairly good return games. Getting three points each on the opponents' serve. Is this the signs of nerves early on?

Cilic holds, but not before some resistance from Federer. The game went to deuce, but Cilic did manage to get it done. Federer would be happy with the way things have begun.

Can Cilic stop the Federer juggernaut?
1 week ago

And it's the last day of Wimbledon 2017. 128 gentlemen had entered the draw. Only two remain. One of them is greatest tennis player of all time. Roger Federer would look to add another chapter to his already glorious career. He is in his 11th Wimbledon final, and ould be looking to improve Pete Sampras' record of winning 7 titles at the grass court Grand Slam. Federer has reached the final without dropping a set. and looks set to win the trophy which he last won 5 years ago.

Across the net from his would be Marin Cilic, who was two sets up against Federer at Wimbledon last year, but somehow just couldn't win. He has a win against Federer though, at the US Open in 2014. But this year, Federer is much more confident, and more significantly, much more fearless. Can the Croat survive a Federer attack? We'll find out soon.
