The world number six has been tipped to achieve great things for some time now and showed his class and temperament by fighting back from a set down against Sam Querrey to win 6-7 (6-8) 6-4 7-6 (7-3) 7-5. The Swiss legend already has seven Wimbledon titles (record he shares with Pete Sampras) and will become the first man to win eight Wimbledon titles, if he wins his match on Sunday.

Roger Federer reached his 11th Wimbledon final after edging to victory over Tomas Berdych 7-6 7-6 6-4.

"I feel very privileged to be in another final", Federer said.

Roger Federer has outclassed Tomas Berdych in straight sets to surge into his 11th Wimbledon final, the 29th grand slam decider of his incomparable career. He bounced back after trailing 2-1 sets to deliver one of the biggest wins in the tournament. Federer has not dropped a single set in the tournament and has played effortless tennis.

Having gone to five sets in his last three matches, Querrey looked as though he was starting to tire. He was bounced in the quarterfinals at the French Open. The Wimbledon 2017 men's singles final is going to be Federer avenging the loss and life the coveted grass court major title for the historic eighth time.

"It's a really exceptional tennis player that we have, that our sport has right now", he said of Federer.

For Berdych, he once again fell agonisingly short during a career overshadowed by the leading quartet of Rafael Nadal, Djokovic, Federer and Andy Murray. The 18-time Grand Slam champion was visibly frustrated with his inconsistency, yet came up with critical first serves and sublime winners at important moments in the match. In the tiebreak the Swiss won two balls at the reception, which was enough to take the lead.

Given his recent history with Cilic and the lack of complacency he showed with his game against Berdych, it's safe to say Federer will not take his final challenge lightly. Berdych hung in with Federer set after set, but simply couldn't keep up when Federer broke.

It is well known that both the players have a lot of mutual admiration. Murray and Hingis will be strong favourites but Watson and Kontinen's chemistry is more long-standing and could prove the difference.
