Federer Wins Eight Record Wimbledon Title

Federer Wins Eight Record Wimbledon Title

From there, Federer finished the match in straightforward fashion, raising his fists to the air after conquering the field at his favorite event once again. Without dropping a single set over the Wimbledon fortnight, the ageless wonder has taken the title, defeating Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4.

Despite a great tournament run from Marin Cilic, the 19-time Grand Slam victor Federer had no fear as he handily put the Croatian down 6-3, 6-1, 6-4.

The third seed achieved the feat without dropping a set during the tournament, continuing an unlikely renaissance that began with the ageless Federer returning from a six-month injury layoff to win the Australian Open earlier this year. After Federer took the second set, Cilic took time out and a retirement, a first in a hundred years, seemed likely but Cilic returned to battle through the final set. He's won two of the three majors in 2017 and he's likely to finish the year No. 1.

As a sporting contest the final was effectively over when Cilic went a set and two games down and sobbed into a towel at the changeover.

# With the win, it is now the fifth time that Federer and Nadal have won the first three Grand Slams between them. Only Martina Navratilova has more Wimbledon titles - nine.

Federer's previous Wimbledon win came in 2012.

History will me made on the final day of the 2017 Championships.

"I never gave up throughout my career". She's unbelievable. I love playing the big stages still.




"But because it's far away, because of what happened past year, I just like to take the opportunity to thank the people in the very moment, and make them understand, yes, I hope that I'm back".

"I don't want to say it's more relaxed going into it because I have a good head-to-head record against Marin, even though the matches were extremely close", said Federer.

Federer congratulated Cilic for putting up a fearless show and playing despite injury and called him a hero. "I can't really believe it yet". You had a wonderful tournament and sometimes you don't just see great in a final.

"I hope this wasn't my last match, I hope I can come back next year and try to defend the title".

"Better than holding the trophy and winning today is to be healthy", said Federer.

But Federer proved far too strong for his injured opponent and strolled to victory in the third set. "I had some tough ones, losing to Novak", he added. People wouldn't believe me if I said that. It's fantastic. It's such a special court.

As per the tradition, the winners of the men's and women's final dance together in the Champions' Ball event which marks the end of the coveted tournament. From day one to finals day, Centre Court is always packed and it's a dream to play here.
