Roger Federer is now really untouchable in the Wimbledon history books after beating Tomas Berdych in the semi-final 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-4) and 6-4 to reach a new record of 11 Wimbledon finals.

Federer was powerful, clinical, and ruthless in his dispatch of Berdych, and reaffirmed to his critics that even at 35-years-old, he is still a force to be reckoned with.

That leaves Pete Sampras and Boris Becker firmly rooted in joint second place with seven final appearances each and makes Roger Federer the undisputed king of Centre Court.

He is now one final win away from being the all-time record holder with eight titles. He is currently tied with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw on seven final wins.

Federer’s Wimbledon record is formidable in finals, with seven wins and only three defeats.

He is the only player to ever appear in seven consecutive Wimbledon finals from 2003–2009, with six consecutive wins until 2009 – three over Andy Roddick, two over Rafael Nadal, and his very first in 2003 over Mark Philippoussis.

His seventh and last Wimbledon win came in 2012 against British and current world number one Sir Andy Murray.

His three defeats across his 14-year career at the famous London tournament were only to two opponents – Rafael Nadal in 2008, and Novak Djokovic in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

Many believe Sunday’s final against world number six Marin Cilic should be a formality for the Swiss, who is world number five, but he will surely not be relaxing until he has won that final Championship point – if he does.

What a moment in a tennis player’s career.

Federer is loving life and takes to Twitter

Roger Federer is rightly excited by the prospect of becoming the undisputed Wimbledon champion, and he took to Twitter to celebrate his success

He wrote: “So so happy and privileged to be in another @Wimbledon final. See you on Sunday.”

His fans commented on his post, one saying: “Cannot wait! Class act!” while another said: “DO IT AGAIN.”

The US Open tennis page also took time to comment on his post, saying: “The privilege is ours to watch you produce grass-court tennis at this level. Enjoy the Sunday experience! You’ve earned it.”

The world seems to be behind Roger Federer and sincerely want him to enter the record books again, this time, as a legend.

Come on Roger, we’re all with you!
