On Friday, Roger Federer defeated Tomas Berdych to advance to his 11th Wimbledon singles final, the most of any man in the Open era, setting up a title match against 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic.

If Federer can repeat that feat at this year’s US Open, he would pull into a tie for the most US Open men’s singles finals in the Open era.
