Federer seeks 8th Wimbledon title, facing Cilic in final

A quick look at Wimbledon:


Roger Federer can become the first man in the century-plus history of Wimbledon to win the championship eight times. He will face Marin Cilic in the final. Federer, who turns 36 on Aug. 8, would also be the oldest men's champion at the All England Club in the Open era, which began in 1968. Federer already owns a record 18 major titles. He is 6-1 against Cilic, including a victory in the Wimbledon quarterfinals last year when Federer came back after dropping the opening two sets and facing three match points. The only time Cilic beat Federer was in the semifinals of the 2014 U.S. Open, en route to his only major trophy.
