Lochte, 32, was charged with fabricating the details of a crime to authorities during the 2016 games.

A criminal case was started against Lochte after his story that he and team-mates Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger had been held-up and robbed by men posing as police.

Instead, the thing that had everyone talking was an incident involving American swimmer - and former Florida Gator - Ryan Lochte, who falsely claimed that he and three others were robbed at gunpoint.

He has won every set he's played in this year's tournament and while he did not dominate the semifinal, he was never in much trouble.

Since equaling Pete Sampras and William Renshaw (who played in the 1880s) with a seventh title at Wimbledon in 2012, Federer has come this close before to No. 8.

"We are pleased that the court has finally dismissed the criminal prosecution against Mr. Lochte, while at the same time, appropriately recognizing that he committed no crime".

The investigation found that Lochte and has teammates had been detained by armed security guards, who drew their weapons and demanded that the swimmers pay them money for the alleged vandalism at the gas station.

Indeed, the 27-year-old paid the sum of 33 million Euros to Sevilla to release him from a five-year-deal that he signed just two days prior.

But Cilic seemed distracted by a delay of a couple of minutes after his first-serve fault at 6-6, when a female spectator who appeared to feel ill was helped from her seat and out of the stands.

Federer would be the oldest man to win Wimbledon in the Open era, which dates to 1968; as it is, he's the oldest finalist since Ken Rosewall was 39 in 1974.

Lochte's suspension, which ended on June 30, meant he couldn't compete in the US championships that were the selection meet for the upcoming World Championships in Budapest.

In an Instagram post last August Lochte apologized for his behavior that evening.

An appeals court reversed a lower court's decision Thursday, ruling that Brazilian law was not broken, USA Today said.

Lochte lost multiple sponsors stemming from the incident and became a national punch line, but has continued to train in the pool and is eyeing another return to the Olympics in 2020 for the Tokyo Summer Games.
