Next up is a showdown between 7th seed Marin Čilić (pictured above warming up for the 2012 Championships at Queens) of Croatia and unfancied 24th seed Sam Querrey of the United States. The announcement was made after the Serbian took a medical timeout during the second set in the quarter-final against Czech tennis player Tomáš Berdych. He defeated Germany's Tomas Berdych 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 6-4 in 2 hours, 18 minutes. "I'm so close now, so I've just got to stay focused", the Swiss ace added.
"I'm unbelievably excited, I hope I can play one more good match".
AS play came to a close across all courts on Wednesday evening, a very sizeable crowd didn't feel like going home. After losing in the Wimbledon semifinals previous year, he took the rest of 2016 off to let his surgically repaired left knee heal.
The sport, just in itself, is not all rainbows and butterflies - or strawberries and cream, to keep with the SW19 theme - and irrespective of the lessons Messrs Roger and Rafael, and Misses Serena and Venus are teaching us this year, it doesn't really get any easier on the other side of 30. "I was down two sets to love and match points down", he said.
A year ago I couldn't play because, like an idiot, I had fallen off my hoverboard, so to be invited back again was thrilling.
On June 9, seven-time Grand Slam champion and former world number one Venus Williams was involved in a vehicle crash in Florida, which would lead to the death of a 78-year-old man two weeks later. And, as Reuters notes, she's heading into the final "an nearly unthinkable 17 years after her first" Wimbledon title.
"My mental toughness was on an extremely high level, considering that both of us played unbelievable tennis in the first set", Cilic said. "Unbelievable" he said when told of his record-breaking feat.

Et c'est Brigitte Macron qui en a fait les frais, jeudi lors de la première journée du couple présidentiel américain à Paris. "Ravissante!", a-t-il déclaré.
"I felt that, mentally, in the critical situations, I was really good, even having a break down in that fourth set". I managed to turn it around.
After beating Berdych in the semi-final, Federer said, "I want to do things outside of tennis as well".
Federer has won 18 Grand Slam titles and will be playing for No. 19 in his 29th major final. I'm happy I'm up to that level again.
It was after the first of his five Australian Opens in 2004 that he claimed the world number one ranking for the first time.
Less than a month later, on July 3, Williams was asked about the incident at the post-match press conference following her win in her first round clash at Wimbledon 2017 against Belgian Elise Mertens.
Cilic dropped the opening set against Querrey, but soon found himself holding a two-sets-to-one lead.
The seventh-seeded Croat finished the match with 25 aces and won 88 percent of the points on his first serve.
