This year, Wimbledon Championships provided some serious headlines. In the first days of the tournament, it was the rain that kept the entire attention. But once the things settled, and the schedule smoothly turned to its natural course, the full attention completely switched to Tennis. On various tennis courts, the players put up a tremendous show. Within the first week of the tournament, a couple of huge upsets happened, with Novak Djokovic being the biggest one. Of course, there is also Stan Wawrinka`s elimination, but the Swiss no. 2 made quite a habit of being inconsistent.

Federer found his pace.

Above all these, Roger Federer managed to raise his level with every match and eventually he reached the quarterfinals, his 14th quarter at Wimbledon. And it happened in a strong manner, with the Swiss controlling every encounter he played in. Moreover, he won 4 matches without dropping a set. That makes three more matches to win in order to win his 8th Wimbledon. A quick look regarding who survived on the main draw reveals a feasible task for Federer. As he already stated, it is a great achievement judging by the numerous obstacles he had to overcome this season.

Federer`s next opponents.

In the quarterfinals, the Swiss player will face Marin Cilic, an unpredictable player, capable of doing great things on the tennis court. Actually, it was Cilic who surpassed Federer in 2014 US Open semifinal. It was a straight sets victory subsequently followed by his first Grand Slam title at the end of a final against Kei Nishikori. Overall, in the head to head meetings, Federer has the leverage by leading with 5-1.

It will be the very first time that these two are going to play against one another on a grass court. If Federer can defeat Cilic, the semifinal is going to be quite a match. On the other side of the net will be either Milos Raonic or Sam Querrey. Both players already proved their skills, but Querrey definitely holds the headlines after his surreal match against Djokovic. Of course, in the final, it might be Murray to challenge Federer.

Once again, Roger has a moral leverage against the Scotsman. Last year in the semis, Murray, despite being favorite against Federer surrendered in only three sets. For many specialists, that`s already the probable final encounter of 2016. Still, Wimbledon`s grass court is capable of producing unexpected outcomes.
