Roger Federer Keeps Hopes Of An 18th Grand Slam Alive

Seven-time champion Roger Federer came back from two sets down to win a classic against Marin Cilic and advance to the Wimbledon semi-finals.

The 34-year-old Swiss saved three match points in the fourth before breaking Cilic’s resistance 6-7 4-6 6-3 7-6 6-3.

Federer initially struggled against Cilic’s big serve and heavy groundstrokes, but reignited the magic of old in the final three sets.

The third seed will play another big server Milos Raonic in the semi-finals

Raonic, the sixth seed and 2014 semi-finalist, sealed a 6-4 7-5 5-7 6-4 win over Sam Querrey, the man who defeated Novak Djokovic.

And with reigning champion Novak Djokovic and number four seed Stan Wawrinka already out his hopes of an 18th Grand Slam title remain alive, four years after his last triumph – also at Wimbledon.
