A super Roger Federer staged the umpteenth incredible performance of his Wimbledon career to come back from the verge of defeat and beat Marin Cilic 6-7(4), 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(9), 6-3 in the quarter final at the Championships earlier today.
Stefan Edberg had come back again to the second row of the Swiss' box and couldn't have been more pleased with Roger's match, as the seven-time Wimbledon champion cancelled a two set deficit and three match points in the fourth set tie-break to overcome the powerful Croat and avenge a semifinal loss suffered at the US Open two years ago.
Federer will next meet Canadian Milos Raonic, who beat Sam Querrey in four sets, in a remake of the 2014 semifinal.
In the video below, shared by the official Wimbledon Facebook account, Federer receives a deserved standing ovation from the Centre Court crowd and from his former coach Stefan Edberg.
