14:54 Take a look at the stats from the first set

The 36-year-old Federer, fresh from a ideal straight-sets run into 2018's final, looked at his unbelievable best as he wrapped up the tournament against the Croatian 6-2 6-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 in three hours and three minutes.

His run of reaching 10 consecutive Grand Slam finals is ended by Novak Djokovic in the 2008 Australian Open semifinals. It was the Swiss legend's first meeting with Fucsovics, who spent a week in the off-season training with him in Switzerland. Federer will renew his rivalry with the big-servingBerdych, who powered into the quarters with a straight-sets win over Italian Fabio Fognini earlier Monday.

"He is the best, Rocket", Federer said as Jim Courier brought the moment to his attention after the match.

"So I'm sure he wants to do it the other way round and make me pay for that one".

Matched Bjorn Borg's record of five consecutive Wimbledon titles in 2007.

The same can be said for Roger Federer in capturing his 20th Grand Slam title. It was in Melbourne a year ago where he lit the fuse on his late-life tennis renaissance, beating Berdych, Kei Nishikori, Mischa Zverev and Stan Wawrinka before downing great rival Rafael Nadal in a five-set final classic.
