Deloitte has a warning for the state economies in NSW and Victoria, which have seen huge benefits from rising house prices over recent years. His string of quick victories in the playoffs has been phenomenal. "There were chances for the opponent, but I was able to come up with the goods when it mattered", he said.
"Honestly, ever since I had the year I had last year, I think like a year ahead of time, you know, with my schedule, fitness schedule, tournaments I would like to play", he told reporters. He later broke Cilic again to take the first set, 6-3.
Remarkably, out of Federer's 13 Grand Slam crowns, he had never won on the clay at Roland Garros until he beat shock finalist Robin Soderling in the final to equal Sampras' record of 14 major titles. But Cilic netted a return there, beginning a run of 17 points in a row won by Federer on his serve.
Roger Federer has won his eighth Wimbledon championship, outclassing a visibly and physically overwhelmed Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 on Centre Court. It's not like going through the motions, like careless. "And I'm happy I kept on believing and dreaming and here I am today for the eighth". I knew that it's going to be difficult. If you give Marin time on the ball, you know, he can finish points nicely. The court is still playing quite fast. I gave it my all.
"For him it was very important to find a way to finish but it was heartbreaking, he was crying".
Both players were certainly feeling the heat -even the usually-composed Federer was made to sweat a little.
"It means the world to me to hold this trophy, particularly when I haven't dropped a set", said Federer on BBC after the match. The whole of Croatia was crying with him at that moment. He's nearly two metres tall.
"Centre Court on Wimbledon final day is a frightening place", sympathized German three-time Wimbledon winner Boris Becker in commentary for the BBC. It's more straightforward, in my opinion.
They showed the staying power that, for one reason or another, too many lacked at this tournament. At Wimbledon so far he didn't lose any set, playing some brilliant tennis in all the matches. "But it's still a big mountain to climb", Cilic said. Muguruza defeated 37-year-old Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0 to become the first Spanish woman to win Wimbledon since Martinez defeated 37-year-old Martina Navratilova.
The coronation scheduled for Sunday might not go on as planned.
- His work should not be underestimated - the lush grass courts are heaven for pigeons, so Rufus' efforts ensure the surfaces remain in the best possible condition.
Federer continued to do what he had to do and, after clinching victory with an ace, raised his fists in the air.

Sunday's success marked the 35-year-old's second Grand Slam win of the year after January's Australian Open, with his career major tally now up to 19.
Garbine Muguruza would like to cap her Wimbledon victory by dancing with Roger Federer.
Both Djokovic and Murray will consider taking some time off, the way Federer did, after their bodies caused them problems at the All England Club.
