McEnroe: 'If Federer plays like he did vs Berdych, Cilic can beat him'- View: 21242 by Gatto Luigi
We saw in the past how much Cilic can do damage against Federer, as he didn't convert three match points in the quarter-finals last year and beat him at the 2014 US Open. Recalling the match played in 2016 on Centre Court, McEnroe said according to Blick: 'The difference than last year is that nowadays Roger is in his best shape.
So he will clearly win his eighth title'. The seven time Grand Slam champion also added: 'If Federer plays like he did today (against Tomas Berdych), Cilic can beat him.' McEnroe also spoke about his admiration for Federer, adding: 'I don't know how it feels like to be loved by the whole World, but I think that it can help you to overcome tough moments.
I tried to do what he does, it means being a good husband. Did I do it? Nope, especially during the first marriage. Am I a good father? Well, that's questionable. I took a six month break as well, butI wasn't the same player as I was before.
What Roger does is simply unbelievable. He moves like he did ten years ago!' 'Federer defies reason', said the former World No. 4 Tim Henman. 'We are wrong to be surprised by him.
He simply rules.' ALSO READ: Federer: 'For a second I doubted I might never come back at Wimbledon' .
