Federer outclasses gritty Berdych to reach final

Federer outclasses gritty Berdych to reach final

There are four junior tournaments at Wimbledon for players between 14 and 18.

Cilic and Querrey, both 6-foot-6, rode the strength of their powerful serves.

"After that (first tiebreaker), I was just a little bit better on the return games", Cilic said. He hit 13 winners to just one unforced error and winning 92 percent of his first serves to open up the two-sets-to-love lead.

Cilic, the No. 7 seed, held up against a strong effort from the 24th-seeded Querrey to win, 6-7 (6), 6-4, 7-6 (3), 7-5, and, in his 11th try, set a record for most Wimbledon appearances before reaching the final.

"You wish them well right away as a rival to them and a friend", Federer said. That's why he should take as much time as he needs before competing again according to Becker: 'He has got to think long-term, not worry about making the US Open - if he is moving there like he did at Wimbledon, then he won't win it anyway. It has got so bad that Djokovic admitted he is contemplating either surgery or even an extended break.

It's a great challenge to have the opportunity to play him, he added.

The seventh-seeded Croat finished the match with 25 aces and won 88 percent of the points on his first serve. "Yeah, I guess the break is something that I will have to consider right now".

World No5 Federer, the highest-ranked player left in the tournament, cemented his place in SW19 history long ago as a seven-time champion.

Andy Murray will sit down with his team on Thursday to discuss what to do next after his Wimbledon title defence ended in a quarter-final loss to Sam Querrey.

Cilic has looked the more impressive and I feel he can gain some serious ground in the rallies if he attacks Querrey's backhand.

"But I still know that it's a big mountain to climb".

It will be the first all-American girls' final at Wimbledon since 1979, when Mary Lou Piatek beat Alysia Moulton.

Cilic is now 5-0 against Querrey and 3-0 against the American at Wimbledon.

Cilic looks the most likely player left to trouble Federer, having taken the veteran to five sets and squandered two match points in their quarter-final here previous year.
