Ranking Scenario ::::

 

 

Roger Federer with this win is back to #3 in the ATP Ranking & has regained Swiss #1 ranking from Stan Wawrinka after 5 months. Read more about it here.

 

 

If Novak Djokovic wins Wimbledon title, he will regain #1 ranking from Rafa Nadal after 40 weeks, read more about it in details right here.

 

 

 

Another interesting stat ---

 

 

Irrespective of who ever wins on Sunday, this will be the 15th time (with the exception of French Open, 2011) in the last 16 majors (including last 4 Wimbledon championship) that the winner will either be Novak Djokovic or the guy who defeated him during any stage of the major.

 

 

 

1st Set

 

 

Federer got the break in the opening service game of the set and that pretty much set the tone for the match. This opening service game was just the 3rd time in 87 service games that Milos Raonic's service got broken during the 2014 championships. Federer faced just one break point in the set and infact the match in the 8th game, which he comfortably saved.

 

 

That one break of serve was sufficient as Federer won the 1st set 6-4 in 34 minutes.

 

 

2nd Set

 

 

The first 8 games went on serve with no break points. Federer got the all important break in the 9th game and then once again, comfortably served out the 2nd set 6-4 in 34 minutes.

 

 

3rd Set

 

 

The 3rd set was a carbon copy of the 2nd set. The first 8 games once again went on serve with no break points. Federer once again got the all important break in the 9th game and wasted absolutely no time, as he served out the set and the match in the 10th game winning the 3rd set in 33 minutes.

 

 

 

Here are the overall match stats ---

Roger Federer after the match stated, “I am very happy, I look very concentrated but I am incredibly happy to be in another final. I expect a lot of myself here. As the tournament went on I played better. That I have been able to play so successfully here for so many years has been an absolute thrill.”

 

 

Roger Federer on Djokovic: “We always play great matches against eachother. He’s a great champion, and he’s already got the trophy here as well."

This Wimbledon is really promising to be a classic. Roger won though in straight sets against Milos Raonic and now faces Novak Djokovic in the final on Sunday. As I said on Twitter the match today was pitting the raw power of the Raonic serve against the wily Federer fox and to my complete delight Roger figured it out and won through. I could have shattered wine glasses with my cries of support during this match, maybe more of a release of tension due to the media build up over the Raonic serve, but Roger did it and hay ho, my dog slept through the whole thing :rolleyes:

Federer certainly had the look about him out there and I really hope he can keep this up and take the Wimbledon Final.

The potential for a mouthwatering classic final awaits ....

Thanks everyone for the interviews, pics, report, etc.  Great stuff from Roger today wasn't it. Great stuff throughout the tournament in fact.  Hope he keeps it up for Sunday.  I was a bit worried about Raonic because although he's famous mostly for his serve, I think his game has been improving lately in other areas.  Today he showed his limitations against a far superior player though.  The gap between them is huge really.  Anyone else think there's something a little robotic about him? Is that a bionic arm he's wearing?

 

Can't wait for Sunday anyway.  Allez Roger!

I know what you mean about that arm thing Raonic wears. I can't help but wonder if it gives extra support seeing as it covers the whole arm, rather more OTT than the coloured Kinesio tape that you sometimes see players wear.

Had to smile at the way Novak Djokovic and Grigor Dimitrov virtually matched eachother for flexibility, sliding as if on a clay court and falling over. At least neither of them was seriously hurt. Compare their match to this one. Very little falling over or sliding about from either player. In fact Roger virtually glides over the surface without leaving a dust cloud in his wake.

I wonder what Wimbledon will do to prolong the life of the grass at the baseline next year. It has all but disappeared on centre court now.

Far easier than i expected thankfully.

Great performance from Roger, completely bossed the match.

 

I felt Raonic would struggle with his nerves somewhat, but i didn't see it being so straightforward for Roger.

Being on court for just an hour and a half could become crucial in tomorrow's final.

 

Time for my heart to have another marathon tomorrow.
