Roger Federer went through round-robin play at the ATP Finals undefeated for the 10th time as he returned to haunt Marin Cilic with a 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-1 win at the O2 Arena Thursday.Six-time champion Federer had booked his place in the semifinals with victory over German trailblazer Alexander Zverev but any notion that he would coast through his final group match proved wide of the mark.Cilic, eliminated after two three-set losses, was hoping to end his year on a high in the city where his Wimbledon dream was brought to an end in this year's final by Federer – the Croatian sobbing on court after suffering blisters.The second set was on serve until, at 4-5, Cilic netted a forehand to give Federer a set point which the Swiss converted.A 100 mph (160 kph) forehand service return gave Federer an early break in the decider.
