Setting up onto the court in the search of history, you could see the same glisten in Federer’s eyes that was there when he began his career. Federer, 35, showed that age is just a number as he became the oldest man in the Open era to win at the All England Club. The third rank Sweed dominated a visibly injured Cilic, who struggled with a blister throughout the match. Cilic seemed to accentuate the problem when he slipped and fell in the fifth game of the match, handing the match all but to Federer. Federer eased to victory 6-3 6-1 6-4 against seventh seed Cilic. He went on to win a tournament that he had taken ablaze, having not dropped a single set the entire tournament.
Roger Federer: “I’ve got to take more time off, I don’t know. I’m going to be gone again for the next six months. Better than winning this trophy is being healthy. I’m feeling great. The tournament I’ve played, not dropping a set, it’s magical.
Marin Cilic speaks. “I never gave up when I started a match. That was my idea today. I gave my best and that’s all I could do. I had an amazing journey here.
It was a memorable milestone for Roger Federer, who now will move onto the US Open in search of his 20th Title. That’s it from this year’s Wimbledon. Hope you enjoyed reading our coverage as much as we liked covering it for you. Bye!
