The uncertainty that comes with playing a BIG 4 outsider is where Federer needs to focus on, Cilic will come at him with every available ammunition, what remains to be seen is how Federer will respond. This season, Federer has defeated every top 10 player he’s faced, 8 of them, and has won in all previous four finals he’s played in.A Federer win is always easy to predict. He’s 35 going on 36 years, with a backhand as smooth as whipped cream and could win a 19th career grand slam, makes it all the more tempting but has anyone thought about a hungry Cilic who may be on a revenge mission? If you’re about to place your bets on Roger Federer to win an 8th Wimbledon title, perhaps you’re right. Federer plays Marin Cilic in the men’s final on Sunday, in all of their 7 encounters in which Federer holds a superior head to head of 6-1, Cilic has always come close to taking the win.Here in Wimbledon, Cilic has been nothing but efficient, taking out Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray’s conquers – Sam Querry and Giles Muller in a back to back 5 setters. In all of these, the Croat has blessed the Wimbledon courts with a staggering 128 aces thus far, winning a lump sum of winners via his massive forehand. All these stats may become useless after the coin is tossed tomorrow, Cilic has matched Federer so much in the past that he may not shy away from a win this time.We won’t go into the usual accolade filled sentences about how smooth Federer is and playing at the moment. And how scheduling has made him the best thing after slice bread. The father of double twin is in a 2nd grand slam final of the season, won the first against Nadal in Australia. Related
