In the final chapters of the grass court Grand Slam, Roger Federer has found himself through to the finals once again after knocking out Tomas Berdych in the semis of Wimbledon 2017.
The Swiss sensation, was hardly made to toil in his battle against Berdych after breaking Czech in 3 straight sets to win the game 7-6(4) 7-6(4) 6-4.
Tomas was strong on the ball with his perfect serves and powering returns but to counter those was the King himself as Federer saw off those attacks in a witty way with his original self and style.
Though Berdcyh managed to get on the Swiss’ nerves in the first 2 sets after giving him a tough competition and took the sets to a tie breaker. Though Federer handles the situation with his cool and came over the Czech as expected from him.
The last and the final 3rd set of the match wasn’t quite fruitful for Berdych as he already had lost hope to overcome the menace. Federer won the final set 6-4, ending the match on a high note with the Swiss yet to concede a set in this year’s tournament so far.
Berdych played at his best but his the results were not a representation of his toil. Post matchBerdych was full of praises for the veteran saying, “Yes, it’s very difficult. This guy, doesn’t really seems is getting any older or anything like that, or slowing down at all. I think I played really good tennis throughout the whole tournament. But, you know, I just, unfortunately, faced a guy that he’s playing in his best. I think he’s playing by far the best tennis right now.”
Federer is playing his very best and is the sole top seed to survive this year. With Novak Djokovic retiring due to injurty while Nadal and Murray knocked out early, it is Roger Federer, the King of Grass to withhold the heat and get through.
Federer was delighted after his win and cherished the moment on entering the finals of the very tournament once again. He said, “It makes me really happy making history here at Wimbledon. It’s a big deal. I love this tournament. All my dreams came true here as a player. To have another chance to go for number eight is a great feeling. I’m unbelievably excited. I hope I can play one more good match. Eleven finals here, all these records, it’s great. But it doesn’t give me the title quite yet. I’m so close now, so I’ve just got to stay focused.”
Federer now gears up for a tough action against Marin Cilic in a bid to win his record 8th Wimbledon title.
