Its been long journey for Federer who won his first Grand Slam Title at Wimbledon in 2003. On Sunday he creates history stepping into the court, becoming the only man to play 11th title match at the All England Club aiming for his 8th championship.
Roder Federer is getting better with age just like an old wine, as Federer soon to celebrate his 36th birthday on 8th august will be the oldest finalist at Wimbledon since 1974.
Federer may not be the same player he was 14 years ago. His increased willingness to play over the top of his backhand has been down, but he is still capable as ever of beating everyone who stands his way.
“This guy doesn’t seem to be getting any older or anything like that,”said Tomas Berdyh, who lost to Federer in the semi-finals,“or slowing down at all”.
Federer and Cilic have played 7 times against each other, with Federer winning 6, including in last years Wimbledons quaterfinals.

The 6.6 foot Marin aged 28 has improved in his game. His serve has improved so has his inclination to move to the net.
Past history favours Faderer by a huge margin and is the only man to play 11 Wimbledon finals, as no one has played more than seven.
Now Federer has a good chance to grab another title,after missing out on chances with losses to Novak Djokovic in the 2014 and 2015 finals.
“It’s a big deal. I love this tournament. All my dreams come true here as a player”,said Roger Federer.
Lets hope this tournament comes up with great excitement and super play at the Wimbledon.
Federer being the favourite, may the more deserving win.
