Federer, Muguruza dazzle at Wimbledon gala

Federer, Muguruza dazzle at Wimbledon gala

After claiming the women's title at the Wimbledon, Muruguza had tweeted Federer whether he was ready to dance with her?

Behind Roger Federer's artistry and charm lies a ruthless streak of razor-edged steel which surfaced again on Sunday as he thrashed suffering Marin Cilic 6-3 6-1 6-4 to secure a historic eighth men's Wimbledon singles title.

The Swiss superstar swept into a 3-0 lead in the second set and at the changeover, Cilic slumped in his courtside chair in tears and in obvious pain. "It was just that feeling that I wasn't able to give the best".

'I drank too many different types of drinks I guess, ' he quipped.

"It's not so easy to win five straight matches (in Masters and lower tournaments)".

18 - In 14 out of the last 18 Wimbledon finals there has been at least one of the Williams sisters playing. "And I hope I can come back next year and try to defend the title". The last hour I have finally felt somewhat OK again. And tennis gets to roll on with a rivalry that is compelling. "We had a good time".

Garbine Muguruza's talent has never been in doubt but a difficult year since winning her maiden grand slam title at the French Open saw her arrive at Wimbledon under the radar. She proved that her run to the Australian Open final (where she lost to Serena) was no fluke by getting to the Wimbledon final - her first at the grass-court tournament since 2009.

He has never relied too heavily on one thing, never settled into a mould that could define his game and thus define a weakness to it. Perhaps Nadal found one, but it was very small, and perhaps now gone. You're going to be playing, for sure. The latest was a punch pass that led to a fast-break dunk. He is 31-2 in matches, has defeated all nine of his Top 10 opponents and has won 17 of his 22 tiebreakers.

"I'm going, 'OK, I know he's not going to serve and volley', which is great".

He's not, of course, the same 21-year-old kid who had a ponytail and scruff when he beat Mark Philippoussis in the 2003 Wimbledon final.

"And she is going to get better and better as the years go by - and each time she comes back to Wimbledon". He also won on grass at Halle, Germany, and on hard courts at Indian Wells in California and Key Biscayne in Florida. "Rankings, not so much, unless I'm as close as I am right now", said the 35-year-old Federer, who also clinched a berth in the season-ending ATP Finals, held in London on Nov. 12-19. Almost every player I played here wouldn't serve and volley.

"It was a mix of emotions".

The Gulf Today Sport Team brings you the monarch of the courts.

Most dramatic match: Gilles Muller's 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 15-13 victory over Rafael Nadal in the fourth round which brought "Manic Monday" to a sensational climax.

"But I always believed".
