“I feel very privileged to be in another final. I can’t believe it’s true”, said Federer, who will play his 11th Wimbledon final on Sunday. Federer achieved this without dropping a single set en-route.

Cilic too had played amazing tennis to reach the final, becoming the first Croatian since 2001, after Goran Ivanisevic  to log the record.

“It’s unbelievable, especially the way this tournament unfolded. I was playing really great tennis from the first round”, tweeted Cilic.
