Swiss master Roger Federer is just one step away from creating history & is aiming 20th Grand Slam Title by after reaching a record seventh Australian Open final.

In the final he will be up against sixth seed Marin Cilic, who defeated World no.1 Rafael Nadal in the quarter-final stage of the tournament.

Federer is highly favorite to win the match as we look forward to head to head records of both the players. Federer and Cilic have met nine times throughout their professional careers, with the latter winning just one back in the 2014 US Open.

However, John McEnroe has his own hilarious way to describe the final. He illustrated a story taking Roger Federer as a goat (G.O.A.T) & Marin Cilic as a Croatian shepherd who wants to play with the animal (goat).

Roger Federer Marin Cilic

“A little while ago, a goat (G.O.A.T) named Roger was happily browsing in an English grass field,” McEnroe said on Eurosport.

“Then came a tall Croatian shepherd who wanted to play with the animal.

“But Roger the GOAT made the shepherd run so much that it took the skin off his feet. He started crying uncontrollably.

“Months later, Roger the GOAT had moved to the Australian bush. This time a Korean whizz-kid thought that he could outsmart the animal.

“He too ran miles before his feet literally burnt under him.

“Hidden behind a tree, the Croatian shepherd was lurking in the shadow, fuelled by a desire for revenge.“Don’t mess with Roger the GOAT, he has the power to give you blisters, again. That’s the moral of the story.”

It would be interesting to see who lifts the Australian Open 2018 title but Federer has already broke many records after making into the finals as

  • He becomes the only second man in Open Era to reach multiple Australian Open Finals past the age of 35.
  • Federer, also surpassed the Djokovic’s record and hold the new record for most Australian Open singles finals in the Open Era with 7.
  • If the Swiss master won this Grand Slam title by beating Cilic in the final then he will become one of four players in history to win 20 or more Grand Slams, joining Margaret Court, Steffi Graf and Serena Williams.
