Federer's path to 19 Grand Slam tennis titles

Federer's path to 19 Grand Slam tennis titles

Among his long list of achievements, Federer becomes the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to win the Wimbledon title without dropping a set.

Federer would become the first man in Wimbledon history to win 8 titles if he wins this one. He is 6-1 against Cilic, including a victory in the Wimbledon quarter-finals past year when Federer came back after dropping the opening two sets and facing three match points.

During the final the Swiss player, ranked fifth worldwide, beat Marin Cilic (Cro/APT 6) in three sets (6-3, 6-1, 6-4). The big serving Croatian even cried after the first set as he received medical attention though continued to play through the pain barrier.

An emotional Federer spoke of his affection for SW19's showpiece court in his post-match interview and admitted he was desperate to return to Wimbledon in 12 months time. "I hope I can come back next year to try to defend the title", he concluded. I was more just so happy that I was able to win Wimbledon again because it's been a long road.

"This is his home court", Cilic said about Federer, "(the) place where he feels the best and knows that he can play the best game". The year 2017 has been incredible for Federer with Wimbledon 2017 being his second Grand Slam after the Australian Open. "So, there are wishes for him that the Swiss star would win his 8th title at Centre Court".

"I wasn't serving very good today because of that".

13 - Federer won all 13 of his service games against Cilic and broke his opponent five times.
