Just as speculated, Roger Federer has slammed it on the Wimbledon titled for the 8th time. This is a really a huge record for the 35-year-old tennis player.
Federer was able to knock down his Croatian opponent, Marin Cilic recording a 6-3 6-1 6-4 victory after one hour and 43 minutes of tennis in the English capital on Sunday afternoon.
Federer won the opening set in 37 minutes – breaking Cilic on two separate occasions.
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.
Federer needed just 25 minutes to move into a two-set lead as he recorded a 6-1 victory in the second, and though his Croatian opponent tried more in the third set, Federer won 6-4.
The latest triumph by Federer, which is his eighth Wimbledon title, takes him past the seven that both William Renshaw and Pete Sampras have registered.
