Can't see Cilic playing the same 'lights out' Tennis as he did beating Federer en route to winning the US Open in 2014 where conditions were quick, it's slower here which will help Federer return, but he's suffering from a Sinus infection and has been nervous this week at times, probably because he knows realistically it's his last ever chance to win Wimbledon again, might even retire if he wonShocked either way I don't see 1.22 as value.

Bjorkman has had Cilic playing doubles this season on grass as well to improve his vollying at the net, this will have to form part of his tactics because he's not going to win a baseline match on this court against Roger. Maybe this has helped him have the best return stats in the tournament and much better than what Berdych's was.

I attended a Queen Tubby match once on the outside courts. There is a small path the player has to navigate before they reach the court. Smart boys like moi then block the path so that the player (and her Forces Personnel escort) have to look at me and wonder when I'll step aside.

There was no way Your Humble Author was moving until my eyes met with hers, and when they did maybe I was imagining things but I'm sure sparks flew.

After the drubbing she gave her opponent, I asked her for her autograph in my very best French, and the honour was granted.

I can now be buried with my Queen Tubby signature, my Steffi Graf signature and my Phil Taylor signed dartboard.
