Roger Federer beats tearful Cilic in Wimbledon men's singles final

Roger Federer scaled new heights of greatness at Wimbledon when he duly collected a record breaking win to put him further ahead of other legends, living and dead.

The 35-year-old Swiss took an eighth All England Club title by hammering a troubled Marin Cilic with ruthless ease, winning 6-3 6-1 6-4 in an hour and 41 minutes.

It was his nineteenth Grand Slam victory and in achieving it he became the first player to win the title without dropping a set since Bjorn Borg in 1976.

Cilic began brightly, but by the middle of the second set he was sobbing into his towel at the changeover. It was not immediately clear if that was due to emotional distress or a blistered foot or both.

Either way, he ultimately had no answer to the rasping groundstrokes of Federer or a serve that functioned beautifully, pinging in more than seven out of 10 first serves.

Ultimately it was a disappointing final, purely in terms of a contest, but those present would be consoled by knowing that they will not see the like of Federer again. Incredibly, having packed in his 2016 season after knee problems post-Wimbledon he now holds both the Australian Open and Wimbledon titles.
