On Friday, the Swiss legend enthralled the crowd with his vintage game as he went on to beat World No 11 Czech Tomas Berdych 7-6(4), 7-6(4) 6-4 in the semi-final.

Federer, after the match, said, “I thought it was close. Even though I feel like it reminded me of the matches I've had this tournament on some occasions, you know, there were chances for the opponent. I was able to come up with the goods when it mattered.”

Meanwhile, Cilic, the 2014 US Open champion, defeated Sam Querrey 6-7(6), 6-4, 7-6(3), 7-5 in four minutes under three hours, to become just the second Croatian into the final here after Goran Ivanisevic in 2001.
