Roger Federer v Marin Cilic Live
Wimbledon 2016 is getting to its business end, and two of the top players still in the competition will face off when Roger Federer plays Marin Cilic. It will be the 6th meeting between the players, with Federer winning 5 and Cilic winning 1.
Roger Federer came into this competition as 3rd seed, and number 3 in the ATP rankings, while Marin Cilic is the tournament's 9th seed and number 13 in the world. The Swiss maestro has gotten to this stage without too much fuss, beating the likes of Guido Pella (7-6(5) 7-6(3) 6-3), Marcus Willis (6-0 6-3 6-4), Daniel Evans (6-4 6-2 6-2), and Steve Johnson (6-2 6-3 7-5). The most recent defeat for the 17 time Grand Slam winner was against Alexander Zverev at the Halle Open (7-6(4) 5-7 6-3). Croatia's Marin Cilic, has also had a pretty straight forward tournament, defeating the likes of Brian Baker (6-3 7-5 6-3), Sergiy Stakhovsky (6-2 6-7(6) 6-4 6-4), Lukas Lacko (6-3 6-3 6-4) and Kei Nishikori (6-1 5-1 retired). The most recent defeat for the 2014 US Open winner was the defeat to Andy Murray at Queen's (6-3 4-6 6-3).
Roger Federer is the better player, especially on Grass, and I expect the serial grand slam winner to progress to the next round.
