Roger Federer was on the top of his game, as he passed Berdych in the second Wimbledon semi-finals. Earlier today, Marin Cilic ended Querrey's run to reach his first final at the All-England Club. The Swiss maestro is yet to lose a set as no one came even close to finding the answer for Roger's brilliant tennis. One by one the opponents fell to the mighty Federer, latest in the row was the 31-year-old Tomas Berdych. So let's break this match down and see how Federer was able to top the Czech.

The first set

Right from the start, Tomas Berdych was struggling to keep his service game. Federer had the first break point, but the Czech was able to pull through.

It wasn't until the fifth game of the set that Roger had his next two break points. Yet again, he was unable to convert them, making two unforced errors in the process. Later in the game, Berdych faced another break point and this time the Swiss was successful. Next game saw Roger's continuing dominance on his serve. However, just when we thought one break would be enough for Federer to take the set, Berdych showed what a fighter he is, patiently building his chances with a couple of amazing shots. Eventually, it was Federer's double fault that evened the score. Berdych faced some more break points in the eleventh game before the two players entered the tie-break with the equal chances of taking the opening set.

They exchanged the mini-breaks but eventually, it was Federer who took the upper hand after 53 minutes.

The battle continues

The second set continued at the similar pace as Tomas was facing some more break points in the third game, but was eventually able to bounce back. Then, in the sixth game, it was Federer who saved a break point.

Still, nothing could stop another tie-break where Federer again came out strong with an early mini-break. Soon came another, and not before long, Federer was leading two sets to love.

The final set

At the beginning of the third set, Tomas Berdych was unwilling to give up the fight, as he was so close to winning both of the sets so far.

He played some exceptional tennis at this stage of the match and soon he had the chance in the Federer's first service game of the set leading 0-30, but the Swiss stormed back quickly. Tomas faced another break point in the fifth game, but in the next one he had two of his own break points, but Federer was able to save the game with two aces. At this point, we kind of knew what would follow. Roger broke Tomas just in time to take the match right where he wanted. Soon, the Swiss maestro was serving for the match and a couple of magnificent shots were enough to earn Federer a place in his 11th Wimbledon final where he will face Marin Cilic.
