Federer was 18-6 against Berdych, but the 11th-seeded Czech beat Federer in the quarterfinals during his run to the Wimbledon final in 2010.

And winning the title on Sunday to claim his second grand slam is something that would leave the 28-year-old on cloud nine. "But I am normal again so I can focus on tactics".

"Sam hasn't been at this part of the tournament. maybe that can have a small part in playing that match", he said.

Federer has now reached 29 Grand Slam finals and for the third time in his career has reached the Wimbledon final without dropping a set, having also achieved the feat in 2006 and 2008.

Earlier, when Roger Federer visited India, he personally invited Sachin Tendulkar for his IPTL match against Rafael Nadal in New Delhi.

Cilic beat Federer en route to his US Open triumph in 2014 and the Swiss, who has not dropped a set in the tournament, is not expecting an easy ride in the showpiece.

The 2014 U.S. Open victor has been beaten in the quarter-final stage in his last three Wimbledon appearances but few would question the seventh seed's right to challenge for the title on Sunday after this display.

Djokovic's injury came as more of a surprise, especially after the 30-year-old won the title in Eastbourne the week before Wimbledon. Federer leads Cilic 6-1 in career meetings.

"Being favourite or not the favourite doesn't matter", said Federer. I do feel I can. At that time I was still a kid, not even 13 years old.

After his painful defeat by Sam Querrey on Wednesday, Murray interrupted a journalist who was saying: "Sam is the first USA player to reach a major semi-final since 2009, ' by saying 'male player".

"It would mean absolutely the world to me", said Cilic. Overall I felt the level was really high'. I had to get really lucky to win. Talking about Wimbledon, Tendulkar said that it is always special for him to be there and that he has always been a great fan of tennis.

Roger Federer, seven-time victor of Wimbledon, has qualified for the eleventh time for the final of the tournament in london due to its success against the Czech Tomas Berdych, 15th in the world, in three sets (7-6 [7/4], 7-6 [7/4], 6-4) Friday.

Querrey is the first American man to reach the semifinals at a major tournament since Andy Roddick was the Wimbledon runner-up in 2009.

At 3-3 in the second Cilic struck, a superb backhand victor down the line on break-point giving him the advantage in the set that he never looked like losing. The Swiss Master got the better of the Czech journeyman on two separate occasions this year, the Round of 32 at the Australian Open followed by the quarter-final of the Miami Masters. I was 4/1 up in the tie-break and didn't convert. "You know, kind of deflated me a little bit". He didn't seem to have many holes. I have a lot of respect for him doing that. "Really, I can not be in a better position before Friday's match", Berdych said.
