Wimbledon 2017 men’s final
Roger Federer vs Marin Cilic
Date: Sunday, July 16, 2017
Time: 9:00 AM ET/PT, 11:30 BST
Venue: Center Court
Roger Federer will try to win the Wimbledon men’s title for a record eighth time when he plays Marin Cilic in Sunday’s final.
Federer, 35, will become the oldest champion at SW19 since the Open era began in 1968 if he overcomes 28-year-old Croat Cilic on Centre Court.
The Swiss superstar is looking to secure a 19th Grand Slam title against a man who has just one – the 2014 US Open – to his name.
FROM racquet-smashing enfant terrible with a bad attitude and ill-advised ponytail to universally respected sporting role model and modern icon, Roger Federer has come a long, long way.
Fourteen years after winning his first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon, Federer stands on the verge of a historic eighth All England Club triumph and 19th major.
Victory over Marin Cilic on Sunday would also make the 35-year-old the oldest man to triumph on the famed grass courts tucked away in the plush suburbs of south-west London.
