Cilic stands in the way of Federer's Wimbledon quest

Roger Bloody Federer Makes History With Record Eighth Men's Wimbledon Title
"I want to be a good father, a good husband, and then maybe someone who is good at tennis too". He is playing more aggressive, trusting his instincts a lot more.
Federer remains a magician on grass, winning 16 titles on the surface: seven at Wimbledon, and nine at Halle. And Federer has painted some ridiculously bold strokes on it this summer.
The other quarterfinals, scheduled for later Wednesday are Roger Federer vs. Milos Raonic and Novak Djokovic vs. Tomas Berdych. Although when it gets to 22-all in the fifth between Cilic and Querrey, I might change my mind.
'I was always joking around when I was a boy, "I'm going to win this",' he said, holding on to the trophy for dear life. But Federer kept him on the run, and kept him guessing. In the end, the third seed had reeled off 53 winners and made only 20 unforced errors.
The victor of the match will face either Roger Federer or Tomas Berdych in Sunday's final. With a win, Federer would achieve a record eighth Wimbledon title, breaking a tie with Pete Sampras, who excelled in the 1990s, and William Renshaw, who won seven titles in the 1880s.
Two weeks on from the meltdown, the 37-year-old will walk out on Center Court at the All England Club in London to contest the 131st Ladies' Singles Final at Wimbledon - her ninth - knowing a win would make her the oldest female Grand Slam champion in the Open Era of tennis. The tall Croat, another aggressive baseliner, has the potential to blow opponents off the court.
So the shy and modest American, much like my co-commentator John McEnroe, Sam Querrey is through to his first Wimbledon semi-final to face Marin Cilic. At Wimbledon a year ago, Cilic had held three match points in the quarter-final against Federer. Well, we'll see what happens to Djokovic and Murray, but I know that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have been looking forward to coming to Montreal. "We had a great one here past year".
"We don't have control over the physical condition of the players, told Lapierre when contacted by The Journal de Montréal". "It's a big deal, I love this tournament".
"There were doubts that I'd come back and play on Centre Court, but I've done it many times and would like to thank Wimbledon for putting me on Centre Court every match this year".
During this year's Wimbledon, Murray also called on schedulers to give women more opportunities to play on the main show courts, which have featured a disproportionately high number of men's matches.
He said they are taller and stronger; that they hit harder and can hurt him, although the same was said about his last victim 26-year-old Milos Raonic, whose analysis of Federer is that the 18-time Grand Slam victor is good at kicking you when you're down.
