The Gentlemen’s Singles semifinals have reached conclusion at 2017 Wimbledon on Friday. Find out who advanced to the tournament’s final on Sunday morning.
Then there were only two left. The Gentlemen’s Singles tournament has completed all but one match at Wimbledon. Two players remain for the chance to win the 2017 title on Sunday afternoon in London. Let’s find out who will be playing for a Wimbledon championship.
The first match of the day saw Croatia’s Marin Cilic defeat the United States’ Sam Querrey in four sets. Most of North America was definitely pulling for Querrey in the semifinals, but he could not win often enough late in sets to upend the higher-ranked Cilic.
Cilic is the No. 7 player in the world and will be looking for his second Grand Slam victory of his tennis career. He previously won the 2014 U.S. Open. Reaching the finals is his best showing at Wimbledon to date. Just getting to the semifinals was a huge deal for Querrey, who really impressive all throughout the tournament. American men’s tennis needs a star, maybe it’s him?
Meeting Cilic in the 2017 Wimbledon finals will be arguably the greatest men’s player on grass ever in Switzerland’s Roger Federer. The No. 3 overall seed knock off the No. 11 seed in the Czech Republic’s Tomas Berdych in three sets to reach yet another Wimbledon Finals. Berdych made it a competitive match but struggled to put Federer at the end of sets.
Federer will be looking to win his eighth championship at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. Should he be victorious over Cilic on Sunday, that would give him 19 career Grand Slams and his second of the 2017 tennis season. He won his 18th Grand Slam in the Australian Open earlier in the year.
