The Swiss needed two tie-breaks to patiently defeat Czech Tomas Berdych and will face the Croatian Marin Cilic in his eleventh Wimbledon final.
- Federer is eternal. He does not get tired of winning. This Friday he has done it again. His victim, a willful Tomas Berdych who has given everything to get the Swiss hand but still has fallen in three sets in the Wimbledon semifinals. That yes, forced two tie-breaks against one of the best players of all time, for many the best.
- Federer will play for the eleventh time the final of his favorite Grand Slam (accumulating 29 among the big four) after winning 7-6 (3), 7-6 (3) and 6-4 to Czech.
- He will do so without losing a single set for the third time in London (2006 and 2008 were the previous ones) and against a player who last year was about to eliminate him in quarters of the London tournament: Marin Cilic. The Croatian, who won in the other semifinal to the American Sam Querrey, had a match ball against the Basel Genius, who was not at his best and was later dropped by Milos Raonic .
- Federer was better in almost everything. He posted more direct draws than his rival (13-9), more winning shots (53-31), he scored more points with his first service (84% -68%) and only reduced his performance slightly compared to other evenings in the mistakes Not forced (20-19). Maybe that's why he did not solve the three sets faster. In the first broke the serve of Berdych in the fifth game, but lost his in the eighth and had to register the partial in the sudden death. With his record in that fate (410-220) he had it easier and did not fail. The second sleeve reached the same outcome and Federer resolved with equal effectiveness. And when it seemed that the third would go the same way, the Swiss scratched a break in a tough time for the Czech, who could no longer react. He dealt with a legend that caresses the eighth cup at Wimbledon.
