Cilic soars into his first Wimbledon final

14 July 2017

Three-time Wimbledon champion Djokovic had medical timeout after losing the first set 6-7 (2) here on Wednesday evening.

Former Great Britain Davis Cupper Jamie Baker feels that fellow countryman Andy Murray might take the remainder of the season off. Murray lost in the Quarterfinals of Wimbledon to Sam Querrey following a hip injury that was very evident in the Fourth and Fifth Set. At the 42 time of asking, Querrey was a Grand Slam semi-finalist and the first American male to do so since Andy Roddick in 2009.

"The specialists that I've talked with, they haven't been really too clear, mentioning also surgery, mentioning different options", the world No. 4 said. Eventually, Cilic came out on top, triumphing 6 games to 4 in the decider.

Sam Querrey will take on Marin Cilic in the Wimbledon Semifinals on Friday, start time at 8:00 AM ET, on Centre Court.

Meanwhile, second seed Novak Djokovic's run in this year's championship came to an end after retiring injured during his quarter-final against Tomas Berdych.

"I think everyone knows he's been fighting through the tournament and the injury probably got worse as it went on". Cilic reached the last four for the first time as he got the better of veteran German Muller in another five-set battle.

Cilic sensed his moment but it was not until late in the fourth, with Querrey serving to stay in the match, that he grabbed it to book his place in the final.

Raonic might have had the 140 miles per hour serve in his locker, but Federer owns a magic wand that he used to make the world's sixth best player look like a lumbering also-ran.

He slammed his 22nd forehand victor to nab the third set in another tiebreaker and appeared to be sailing to victory after claiming a key break early in the fourth. "After swatting Raonic aside in straight sets Federer became, at 35, the oldest man to reach a semi-final since Ken Rosewall in 1974".

"I'm still in a bit of shock", Querrey said after the match".

After relatively easy wins against Thomas Fabbiano and Nikoloz Basilashvili in the first two rounds, he has beaten Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Kevin Anderson and the world No.1 Andy Murray. Murray's own movement, one of the cornerstones of his game, was clearly hampered, and he won just two more games.
