Federer will be aware Cilic is no pushover — Wimbledon

Cilic smashed his racquet into the ground in frustration.

Before this year's Wimbledon, Federer had been tied at a men's record seven Wimbledon championships alongside Pete Sampras and William Renshaw (who won his last one in 1889). The 20-year-old Jelena Ostapenko backed up her French Open triumph with a run to the quarter-finals and who could forget Johanna Konta, the new world number four, who looks all the way a major champion of the future? Plus we had a great one here last year. Federer has been winning 83 percent of his first serve points and his backhand is looking better than ever. He's doing things the right way. On the eve of the match, she said of the oldest woman to reach a final since Martina Navratilova, a 1994 runner-up, "For me, it's incredible".

The roof over Centre Court is closed for the women's final at Wimbledon. I played, I would say, probably the best tennis of my life.

Cilic had treatment on his left foot at the end of the set but it made no difference as Federer strode towards history.

Federer broke to a 4-3 edge in the third set and all that remained to discover was how he'd finish. It was really tough today.

He has won every set he's played in six matches, and while he did not exactly dominate against the 11th-seeded Berdych, Federer was never in much trouble.

From there, frustration seemed to build in Cilic - after the first set, he smacked his bag with his racket. As hard as it may be to imagine, there'll eventually come a time when smartphones are laughable relics of a bygone technology age.

An ace at 3:52PM local British time turned Roger Federer into the greatest Wimbledon men's champion of all time.

The coronation scheduled for Sunday might not go on as planned. "But it was tough when you are in that situation because you know there is not much chance to win".

Williams had been trying to win her sixth Wimbledon title. "It's going to be like we have to raise the net, push the lines in a little bit". I just felt it was really bad luck.

Federer for the eighth time won the Wimbledon and became the most decorated player in the history of the tournament.

The Spanish star's best surface is clay, but in terms of quality, he will contest with Federer for the final Grand Slam of the year. Federer and Cilic have clashed seven times, with Federer holding a 6-1 advantage.

Cilic will struggle to find answers on Centre Court, because of that very reason. "But I believe I'm ready", he added. Cilic is in his first finals appearance in 11 excursions to Wimbledon, as he hopes to depose a Federer that has experienced to some degree a renaissance all through this competition. "It was very difficult to deal with it". If he can control Cilic's power, then he will win the match. Updates will be pending.

The Swiss master's 19th grand slam success leaves him four majors clear of Nadal, who is four years younger.

Garbine Muguruza already knew what it's like to lose to a Williams in the Wimbledon final. "I'm just very pleased to be back here".

"They helped. The last 30 hours, they were just constantly almost with me".

Who do you think will win the title?
