federer 700‘Tennis legend and former world No. 1 Roger Federer managed one of his greatest escape acts on Wednesday, as he saved three match points to come back from two-sets-to-love down and beat ninth seed Marin Cilic 6-7(4), 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(9), 6-3 in the Wimbledon on Wednesday.

Federer has now moved into the Wimbledon semi-finals for the 11th time and will now face Milos Raonic, who beat American Sam Querrey 6-4, 7-5, 5-7, 6-4.
“Today was epic. Probably going to look back at this as being a great, great match that I played in my career, on Centre Court here at Wimbledon... This is huge for me, my season, my career. I'm very, very happy,” Federer said. “To win a match like this, to test the body, to be out there again, fighting, being in a physical battle and winning, it is an unbelievable feeling.”
