7 - Federer becomes the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to come through all seven rounds of the singles without dropping a set. Holds serve and is 5-4 behind. He now leads 4-3 in the third set.

The second set Federer started with the jerk 3:0.

When it comes to head-to-head, Federer has a clear 6-1 advantage against Cilic. In that six matches won by Roger Federer and one match by Marin Cilic. 2-2 in the first set now.

Though Cilic was keen to take the game to the fourth set, he knew he had his task cut out. He will face Marin Cilic in the final. His second Slam of the year moves him to three in the world rankings, and tantalisingly close to regaining the world number one spot for the first time since November 2012.

At 35 years and 11 months old, Federer is the second-oldest major champion ever, behind only Ken Rosewall, who won the 1972 Australian Open at 37. Now we'll get to see if Cilic can do the same to Federer.

In what was one of the biggest days of his professional career, Marin Cilic's Wimbledon final has turned into something of a nightmare.

Will history repeat itself? .

With his 36th birthday fast approaching, the evergreen Swiss will comfortably succeed Arthur Ashe, who was nearly 32 when he won in 1975, as Wimbledon's most senior champion. Federer's 91st win improves his own men's singles record. Nicklaus won 18 majors.

Federer won the Australian Open earlier this year after a long break due to injury and has now triumphed at Wimbledon, having skipped the entire clay-court season.

For the first time in eight grand slam finals over the same amount of years, Federer will not play someone called Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal when he bids for a record eighth Wimbledon title on Sunday.

Rodger Federer won the Wimbledon and entered the history as the most successful player of the most prestigious tennis tournament.
