Roger Federer had wild night celebrating Wimbledon title

Roger Federer had wild night celebrating Wimbledon title

The Wimbledon has stood tall as the pre-eminent among the Grand Slams, adhering to its humble culture that allows a perfect melange of drama and skill sans histrionics.

The Scotsman is battling with a hip injury that saw him limp out of his quarter-final defeat to Sam Querrey at Wimbledon and could be forced to miss the US Open, depending on medical advice. He was surpassed in the rankings by the other members of tennis' Big 4 as they began accumulating Grand Slam trophies - first Rafael Nadal, then Novak Djokovic, then Andy Murray.

Federer knew something was going on with Cilic, but he wasn't exactly sure what.

If you wanna cry, go ahead and cry.

Federer would break to a 4-3 edge in the third set and all that remained to find out was how he'd finish.

No man has ever won more than Federer's 19 slam titles, with Margaret Court's all-time tally of 24 a potential target.

In a post-match press conference, when asked who she would prefer to dance with at the dinner, Muguruza said: "Roger". I always felt like I played my best on the biggest courts. I don't think he's lost any of that. But not everyone has the ability to truly harness that power.

"I'm very straightforward. I know that these last two weeks have been great tennis from me". Having broken virtually every possible record in the game, Federer is now only competing against himself. Both are central to the fact that perfection and magic can produce an enchanting beauty that is to be savoured till the last drop.

Wimbledon was rocked by eight retirements in the singles first round, seven in the men's draw and one in the women's. Got to bed at five, then woke up, and just didn't feel good. "It's too much, really". "I can't believe it yet". He can produce a surprise only to murder it with routine casualness. But the gamble paid off as a rejuvenated Federer won a fifth Australian Open on his return before adding back-to-back Masters at Indian Wells and Miami.

"Obviously I'm going to look back, 12 months ago I was one point away from winning a match against him here".

Federer beat Croatian player Marin Cilic in straight sets to cruise to his Men's Singles title. She is tall, athletic and powerful and it's up to her to demonstrate how much she wants to be the best.

He was trailing badly and later revealed he had suffered from really bad blisters he picked up in the semi-final.

With Federer walking back to the baseline to receive serve and the Centre Court crowd including UK Prime Minister Theresa May subdued, Cilic sat on his chair, his towel over his head.

A lot has changed in the years since Federer clinched his first grand slam trophy at Wimbledon.

Immediately the liberal sports media erupted in slobbering praise for Murray the "feminist" male tennis player. But after the ball we went to a bar and there was about 30 or 40 friends there. "But when it happens, it's amazing". Federer skipped the clay-court circuit, missing the French Open again, to be in top shape for the grass courts he loves so dearly.

However, the Swiss superstar's 11th Wimbledon final, and 29th at the majors, will also be remembered for the moving sight of the popular Cilic breaking down in tears after slipping 3-0 behind in the second set. His celebration was so wild that it inspired the Washington Post to use "lit" in a headline.
