One particular journalist gave him a reason to be optimistic about the future.

"But after that I was better in the return games. I'm so close now, so I just have to stay focused".

After Wimbledon 2012, when Federer equaled to Pete Sampras and William Renshaw who played in the 1880s and won the seventh title that year (2012), this is the first time when Federer has reached this close to No. 8.

"I feel very privileged to be in another final", he said. It would be a big ask for the Croatian to beat Federer in his own territory, but Cilic would not be feeling undue pressure over the big match.

Cilic and Federer have faced each other seven times in the past with Federer winning six of those contests.

Cilic is the No. 7 player in the world and will be looking for his second Grand Slam victory of his tennis career.

Robbie Cornthwaite will led the Wanderers for the first time after being made captain for the upcoming season. The 26-year-old Frenchman, who came on as a substitute in the 68th minute, scored in the 83rd minute.

The legendary Swiss tennis player Roger Federer beat Tomas Berdych and booked a place in the final of Wimbledon.

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.

If Cilic was watching, there were little glimmers of hope but this was an excellent performance from Federer.

It wasn't until his quarter-final match against Gilles Miller that he was truly tested. He's got power, and so has Marin. He has spoken up for women's issues and women's rights, especially in tennis, forever and he does it again.

For Berdych, this was another case of so near, so far. He is the favourite as he bids to secure a 19th grand slam title this weekend and who would bet against him moving into the early twenties before his glittering career his out?

The ageless superstar resisted a spirited challenge from Berdych to prevail 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-4) 6-4 to become the second oldest man in the open era to reach the final after Ken Rosewall, the 1974 runner at 39. The break only lasted a couple of minutes, but Querrey won both points when play resumed, with Cilic missing a pair of backhands. Just getting to the semifinals was a huge deal for Querrey, who really impressive all throughout the tournament.
