The Croatian will be cheered on by his stunning girlfriend Kristina Milovic as he goes for his second Grand Slam title on Centre Court.

Federer is the first since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to win Wimbledon without dropping a set. Given sympathetic cheers by the Federer-favouring 15 000 crowd, the 28-year-old managed to regain his composure but there was no chance of Federer letting up as he accelerated towards a record-extending 19th grand slam title.

Roger Federer brushed aside the challenge of Marin Cilic to land a record eighth Wimbledon men's singles title.

The 18-time Grand Slam champion will play his11th title match at the All England Club on Sunday with a shot at his eighth championship, more than any man in history.

"The tournament I played, not dropping a set, it's magical really", Federer said after the match.

At the change of ends with Federer leading 3-1 in the second set, trainers had to come to the aid of the Croatian who was in tears on his seat with a foot injury. Federer's 91st win improves his own men's singles record. A victory in today's final would move him beyond Pete Sampras and Williams Renshaw on the all-time Wimbledon title list.

In the day's other final on Centre Court, Jamie Murray and Swiss Martina Hingis beat Finland's Henri Kontinen and Briton Heather Watson 6-4 6-4 to win the mixed doubles final.

Federer has won 7 of their matches to Cilic's 1. An obsession too. Because "RF" cherished more than all the prestigious tournament on grass, won in juniors in 1998 and five years later in adults for the first time.

Cilic's foot injury appeared to affect him and Federer did not shy away from taking advantage of his opponent while he was experiencing a good deal of pain.

- Cilic needed a medical time-out midway through the second set against Federer.

The 35-year-old started 2017 with a bang by claiming the Australian Open, beating long-time rival Rafael Nadal, racking up his fifth title down under on the hard court. Marin Cilic, however, remained at the sixth place. I knew I could do great again maybe one day, but not at this level.
