Roger Federer v Marin Cilic Wimbledon Final 2017 odds

Federer to create more Wimbledon history with 8th title

Roger Federer, a very grumpy Roger Federer at that, moved past the challenge of Tomas Berdych in the semi finals of Wimbledon on Friday evening to book a spot in his eleventh Wimbledon final where he will face Croatia’s Marin Cilic. Federer is then on the brink of creating more history at the tournament winning what would be his eighth grass court Grand Slam title at Sw19.

It is a massively impressive record and Federer goes into the final match as heavy 2/11 odds on favourite at bet365 to win the match. With none of the other top four in the sport managing to get to the final, Federer has sustained his position as outright favourite, which he was before a ball was served in anger at the tournament. With the Australian Open already under his belt this season, the remarkable legend could yet again makes waves.

This is a record 29th Grand Slam Final for Federer as he is the second old man to have reached a Grand Slam Final as well. If he wins this one it will be the 19th Grand Slam title of his career and he will look to dominate on Centre Court again. He did cut a frustrated figure in the semi finals though with littles niggling things not going in his favour, but he channelled it all to get through in straight sets nonetheless. That’s just what Federer does.

Federer is 10/11 to win 3-0 at bet365 in set betting for the final, although because he was pushed close by Berdych, a 3-1 result on him may have appeal at 11/4. For Marin Cilic, this is just his second Grand Slam Final. Cilic has a big serve which he will need to get working quickly. Cilic took a 3-1 set win over Andy Murray’s conqueror Sam Querrey in his semi final battle with the American. It was a very tight and competitive match up though where he had to work very hard though, but his serve held him up.

In the head to head between Federer and Cilic, Federer fans will be happy to see a 6-1 advantage for the Swiss star over the Croat. They met last year at Wimbledon in the quarterfinals and Federer won through in five sets. That is their only grass meeting. Cilic’s success over Federer came back in the semi finals of the US Open, where he won in straight sets before going on to claim the title at Flushing Meadows. Cilic is 4/1 underdog to win the match.
