Roger Federer races to Wimbledon milestone

Roger Federer races to Wimbledon milestone

With this victory, Roger Federer also became the first player since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to win Wimbledon without dropping a set in the entire tournament. Federer then incredibly won the Australian Open earlier this year in his first sanctioned tournament back from his break for his 18 major title. He last played Federer here on the grass courts of Wimbledon in 2016, and he ended up losing a five-set battle.

He was magnificent, but we have to add that he had some help because the Croatian player was injured. Trying to serve-and-volley more often, he won just one game the rest of the set as Federer's dominance continued.

LONDON, UK - Roger Federer saluted Wimbledon "hero" Marin Cilic after the injury-hit Croatian was reduced to tears during Sunday's emotional final.

Two major titles in a matter of months seemed implausible when Federer was sidelined for six months during the second half of a year ago with a knee injury.

The last time the Swiss won the tournament was in 2012.

Marin Cilic was able to speak about his injury after his loss on Sunday morning, according to USA Today.

They didn't even need ace Clayton Kershaw, who makes his first start since the All-Star break Tuesday at the White Sox. Miami got its only run against Hill in the fifth inning on a fluky infield single by a future Hall of Famer.

Federer would be the oldest man to win Wimbledon in the Open era, which dates to 1968; as it is, he's the oldest finalist since Ken Rosewall was 39 in 1974.

It may not have mattered, considering how dominant Federer was at Wimbledon and throughout the year. It's one of the very few records the Swiss superstar has to chase, and based on his form over the past two weeks, it's not a stretch to think it's more than well within reach.

It's his nineteenth career grand slam title during his illustrious professional career.

I've written about him before and I am more than happy to write about him again.

After this match, he passed over Pete Sampras and William Renshaw, the two legends, who had the same number of titles like him. Fourteen years later, Federer, now the father of four young children, was clean-cut and clean-shaven as he defeated Cilic to win his eighth.
