Champion Federer revels in historic eighth Wimbledon title

Cilic was the first to draw a break point, but as Federer snuffed it out when trailing 1-2 in the first set, the Croat's chances of victory seemingly went with it. He improves his record in Wimbledon finals to 8-3.

Federer's legend was forged in SW19; a fourth-round win over Pete Sampras aged just 19, beating Rafael Nadal in a five set epic on a roofless Centre Court in 2007 to equal Bjorn Borg's record five in a row, outlasting Andy Roddick 16-14 to win a record 15th Grand Slam title two years later, beating Andy Murray in his first Wimbledon final to equal Pistol Pete's tally of seven wins.

Britain's Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge were on hand to watch Roger Federer's Wimbledon victory.

"Fluid just came down under my callous in the foot".

"They did so much for me". But in any point, obviously if the score would go really badly, I wouldn't push it so much. "But I really wanted to give my best to try as much as I could".

Cilic collapsed in tears at 0-3 in the second set as the realisation struck his Wimbledon dreams had turned to nightmares.

"It was very, very difficult to deal with it". I wasn't serving very good today because of that.

Kobach's spokeswoman Samantha Poetter said in an email Monday that Kobach had no comment and was still reviewing the complaint. She also says Kobach failed to file documents in state court that would have helped an elderly couple register to vote.

By winning Sunday's final in straight sets, Federer becomes the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to win Wimbledon without dropping a set.

"My heroes walked the grounds here and walked the courts here". I was more just so happy that I was able to win Wimbledon again because it's been a long road, it's been an exciting road. He is now on track to regain the world No. 1 ranking for the first time in five years.

The Swiss was deposed by Novak Djokovic in 2012, ending a cumulative record 302-week reign and he slipped to No. 17 last year when sidelined with a knee problem.

This is the fifth time in history Federer and Nadal have split the opening grand slams between them, but first since 2010.

By notching an unmatched eighth Wimbledon spoil, and his 93rd career title, Federer wound back the clock to the halcyon days of 2009 - the last season he annexed multiple majors.

At 35 years and 343 days, Federer was the second oldest man behind Australian Ken Rosewall (39 years, 24 days) to reach the Wimbledon final.

Surrounded by the tournament doctor, referee and trainer, Cilic soldiered on - only to lose serve with an errant forehand volley to fall further behind at 1-5.

Trump's Approval Rating at 6 Months Is The Lowest on Record

Cilic had treatment on his left foot at the end of the set but it made no difference as Federer strode towards history.

Urged on by a centre court crowd desperate to avoid the tournament's first retirement in a men's final since 1911, Cilic lifted. Having reached his "special number", Federer now really is in dreamland.

- Cilic needed medical attention midway through the second set against Federer. Roger Federer's Wimbledon win sees him pass Nadal for most title wins in 2017.

No player other than Federer (eight), Novak Djokovic (three), Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray (two titles each) has won Wimbledon since Lleyton Hewitt in 2002. The Swiss won the first set 6-3.

The remarkable thing is, he is absolutely right.

"Better than holding the trophy and winning today is just being healthy".

Rosewall finished runner-up in 1974, meaning Federer becomes the oldest man in the Open era to win the Wimbledon title.
