This is the 10th time in Grand Slam career that Federer has come back after being two sets down.
After Novak Djokovic’s exit on Saturday, hopes of Federer winning a record 18th Grand Slam had shot up but Cilic but them on the brink after being on match point in the fourth set.
Federer was ruthless once he broke Cilic in the fifth set and then rallied to a 6-3 win to pocket the match, his 307th win in Grand Slam.
Martina Navrotilova had 306 Grand Slam wins.
