PICTURES: Thomas Berdych pays tribute to injured Novak Djokovic…with his shoes

Sam Querrey Shocks Andy Murray Books Spot in Wimbledon Semifinals

The 35 year-old is through to an 11th final - four more than any other man - after beating Tomas Berdych 7-6 (7/4), 7-6 (7/4), 6-4.

His narrow win on Friday including two tie-breaks means that Federer still has not dropped a set in this tournament but he was run close by Berdych, who repeatedly targeted Federer's forehand with some success. Should he be victorious over Cilic on Sunday, that would give him 19 career Grand Slams and his second of the 2017 tennis season.

Federer won his first Wimbledon title in the year 2003, when he defeated Australia's Mark Philippoussis 7-6, 6-2, 7-6 in straight sets. "He's just proving his greatness in our sport". There was a break in play at 6-6 after a spectator was taken ill, and Querrey won the next two points to take the set.

Federer was elated after playing his 100th match at the All England Club. For the curious, he is 13-3 in tiebreakers in finals, splitting two of them in the 2006 victory as well as the 2014 and 2015 losses against Novak Djokovic. The last time anyone outside of the fab four (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray) won the title was way back in 2002, when Australian Lleyton Hewitt won the Wimbledon. Cilic pushed him hard in the quarterfinal matchup, but he's never played in a Wimbledon final.

While the wages are small, or nothing at all, the ballkids do receive a food stipend and get to keep their uniform.

Speaking to the Wimbledon channel, Sachin said, "I've been watching Roger for the last 10 years". But couldn't shake off the knock in his game against Berdych. So I'm in for a tough one.

"Roger is playing the best tennis of his career on this court".

The Czech, who has twice before beaten Federer on the grass of SW19, was broken early in the opening set but fought back strongly to break himself and force a tie-break that Federer edged 7-4.

"I would say my mental toughness was on an extremely high level, considering that both of us played amazing tennis in the first set", said Cilic.

And 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena told ESPN: 'I don't think there's a woman player that is not totally supportive of Andy Murray.
