Federer makes Wimbledon history with 8th title

Roger Federer Wimbledon 2017 final Roger Federer vs Marin Cilic Marin Cilic Wimbledon final sports, indian express

Federer continued to do what he had to do and, after clinching victory with an ace, raised his fists in the air. The 35-year-old took only one hour and 41 minutes to win the game in straight sets to win his first Wimbledon title since 2012.

With his 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 win on Sunday at Centre Court, Roger Federer made yet another contribution to the record books by winning his eighth Wimbledon title.

Cilic, who was competing in his first ever Wimbledon final, received treatment to his left foot during the contest, with the 28-year-old grimacing with pain as the second set got underway. The other Grand Slam events are US Open (1881), French Open (1891) and Australia Open (1905). He now leads 4-3 in the third set.

With this win, he moves to no. 3 in the world and further stamps his authority as the Greatest of All Time (GOAT).

Three quick thoughts on the men's championship match at Wimbledon 2017.

Cilic will know what to expect in Federer. "Every time I had to do a reaction fast, I was unable to do that", he said. That was my idea today. "I gave my best - that was all I could do", he said.

"Number eight obviously means a lot to me because at that level, to be part of Wimbledon history, is truly unbelievable".

"I really hope to come back and try it one more time". I want to thank my team, they gave so much strength to me.

"I a m incredibly surprised how well this year is going, how well I'm feeling, how I'm managing tougher situations, where my level of play is on a daily basis", added Federer.

"Wimbledon was always my favourite tournament", he said, "My heroes walked the grounds here and walked the courts here". But I kept believing and if you believe you can go a long way in your life. I'll be gone again for the next six months! Better than winning this trophy is being healthy. Here's a guy who's already won one major, he's younger than any of the Big Five, and he's won 10 matches at Wimbledon over the last two years. I had some tough ones, losing to Novak. It's fantastic. It's such a special court. It's a special court and many legends have marked this court.
