At 32 years old, Roger Federer holds pretty much every record for men's singles tennis possible. He has the most Grand Slam titles at 17, but will look to add number 18. He hasn't won a Major title since 2012 at Wimbledon, and he has another chance to win a record-breaking 8th Wimbledon championship on Sunday, where he will face Novak Djokovic.
Federer easily and quickly (under 2 hours) beat 23-year-old Milos Raonic in the men's semifinals on Friday (6-4, 6-4, 6-4). He broke Raonic in the first set of the match, and then broke him in the 9th game of both the 2nd and 3rd sets to go up 5-4 each time. Through the entire tournament, Federer has only been broken once. He only faced one break point today, and saved it. Here is match point:
If Federer wins on Sunday against Djokovic, he will break the record for most Wimbledon championships - a record which he currently holds along with Pete Sampras with 7. It will be the 35th time he faces Djokovic in his career.
My favorite moment of today's match was when he returned Raonic's serve without even trying or realizing it.
