We have been expecting you Mr Federer

Roger Federer continued his unhurried march into yet another Wimbledon final. This is familiar territory for Roger Federer. His 9th entry into the Wimbledon Finals would not come as a surprise to anybody following his graceful progress at the tournament this year or over the period 2003 – 2008 where he routinely made the finals !

However this year it took a new coach in stefan Edberg and a resurgence in form for the 32 year old Swiss to reach this stage.

Today was a clinical display by the Federer of old. The Swiss waited for the right moments to accelerate past Milos Raonic for a routine 6-4, 6-4 , 6-4 win.  and now Novak Djokovic beckons in what will be a smashing final this Sunday.

We have been expecting you here Mr Federer…

At 32 years of age and with the next generation of brat packs fast approaching , the music may not last forever for Roger, but all of us will stand by for one last tango.
