Marin Cilic will face either Roger Federer or Tomas Berdych in Sunday's final

The Spaniard went into Wimbledon ranked 15th in the world and her victory at the All England Club will push her up to fifth in the WTA Rankings when they are published on Monday.

Add in the fact he has been almost 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.

"Digesting success is difficult". The ranking is temporary but it is really to be a good player and always have a chance to win a trophy.

"I gave my best and that's all I could do".

Tennis player, Tomas Berdych wore the trainers with a picture of Novak Djokovic's face located on the tongue.

But standing in his way in the final will be Marin Cilic, the seventh seed. He doesn't fight power with power unless he's trapped into it; typically he'll defuse power in a way that leaves the power broker off-kilter and lacking a way to mete out his preferred form of punishment.

"It feels like a dream come true", added Muguruza.

Speaking to Sue Barker after receiving his trophy, he said: "Holding the trophy now, after not dropping a set in the tournament, it's magical really". His string of quick victories in the playoffs has been phenomenal.

While they personify different tennis eras - Sampras being king of the serve-and-volley 90s and Federer shining in the more all-court recent past - they did briefly coincide.

"Now I am paying interest for all these years as a professional, my body is giving me signals", said Djokovic.

"Wimbledon was always my favourite tournament, will always be my favourite tournament", said the 35-year-old.

It was 16 years ago when Federer famously defeated Sampras at Wimbledon to announce himself as a star in the making.

Sampras's fastest Wimbledon serve was 136mph in 2001 but Federer managed 135mph in 2009 against Andy Roddick, perhaps inspired by the American's own supercharged serves.

Federer join Rosewall as the only other man two win two grand slam titles after his 35th birthday. I was more just so happy that I was able to win Wimbledon again because it's been a long road, it's been an exciting road.

Once a nervous performer on the big stage, Cilic has shown gathering signs of becoming more comfortable when his credentials are examined. Nowhere is he adored more than on the Centre Court of Wimbledon.

Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis won the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon by beating Henri Kontinen and Heather Watson 6-4, 6-4 on Centre Court.

In a serving battle, it was Cilic who took charge in the tiebreaker but up 4-1 the Croat couldn't close it out, dropping 7 of the last 9 points, and losing the last two with horrendous backhand misses. "So I just have to check the situation, if it's worth it to run after it or not".

Federer, who will be 36 in three weeks' time, became the oldest Wimbledon champion of the modern era after beating Marin Cilic.

This season Federer has won four tournaments - the Australian Open, the Masters 1,000 at Indian Wells and Miami, and the Halle Open for the ninth time.

Meanwhile Cilic was left to rue what could have been had he not suffered what proved to be a bit of a debilitating blister.

Turns out six months away from the tour were all that was needed to enliven the game of tennis' most spectacular showpiece.
