July 14, 2017 -- Wimbledon, England
The seven time Wimbledon Champion will play in his 11th final at Wimbledon on Sunday after a solid showing in today's semifinal match against Tomas Berdych.
Roger was challenged through out the 3-set match as Berdych stayed close forcing two of the sets to go to tiebreakers. The Swiss Maestro used his serve to help get him out of tight spots and closed out the win 7-6(6), 7-6(3), 6-4.
“I was able to come up with the goods when it mattered...I played good in the 'breakers...I never played with any sense of panic, which is so important when it gets to crunch time,” he said, who saved five of six break points.
Roger will face Marin Cilic in Sunday's Final at the All England Club. The two have played 7 times and Roger leads the head-to-head 6-1, most recently beating him in last year's Quarterfinal match at Wimbledon. If Roger comes away with the title, he will move up to number 3 in the ATP rankings.
