Roger Federer earned the primary break of the Wimbledon last within the fifth recreation of the primary set, and he set it up with this little bit of informal genius.

With Marin Cilic serving at 2-all, zero-15, he and Federer performed a cat-and-mouse, drop-and-redrop level, with Cilic sending his masterfully angled reply skidding out previous the doubles alley.

That ought to’ve been the top of that, however Federer managed to trace it down, flick out his racket, catch the ball about an inch above the grass, and ship it again blindly, only a hair over the web, for a down-the-line winner.
