  • Federer serves an ace during his semifinal win over Berdych

Cilic's former coach Goran Ivanisevic says that Marin has the potential to become a top-four player and this weekend represents his best chance of winning a Wimbledon title.

19 - A 19th grand slam title means Federer now has more of the biggest prizes in his sport than golf's greatest champion Jack Nicklaus, a big tennis fan, managed in his sporting sphere. The 35-year-old took only one hour and 41 minutes to win the game in straight sets to win his first Wimbledon title since 2012.

This is Federer's 19th Grand Slam victory. "It's too much really", Federer said.

With his record set on Sunday, Federer passed one of the men he defeated in the 2001 Wimbledon tournament, Pete Sampras, who tied the record in the year 2000 that was previously held by William Renshaw in 1889.

Federer is bidding to become the first male player to win eight Wimbledon titles.

Three quick thoughts on the men's championship match at Wimbledon 2017. He was injured and received treatment on his left foot on the changeover between the second and third sets.

Federer did manage to win the Australian Open earlier this year, though, surprising many and putting the rest of the tennis world on notice.

Federer, who turns 36 on August 8, would also be the oldest men's champion at the All England Club in the Open era, which began in 1968.

Cilic required medical attention in the first set for his foot but was able to continue in the second set but needed his trainer to further re-examine his foot after that. From day one to finals day, Centre Court is always packed and it's a dream to play here.

Federer won the other five meetings between the two, holding a 5-1 record in the head-to-head. A three-time victor, he won his first and last title in 1920 and 1930 respectively. Roger has now won Australian Open, Indian Wells Masters, Miami Masters, Halle and Wimbledon.

While sat on his chair, Cilic was then visibly upset and started crying, as Federer waited patiently. His opponent in the final Marin Cilic from 11 attempts has reached a decisive match.

"I've got to take more time off, I don't know".
