Federer cruises to record victory

Federer cruises to record victory

The match will start at 6:30 PM.

The Swiss third seed won 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 to record a 19th Grand Slam title of his career on the grass of Centre Court. "It's actually quite difficult with the amount of things in my life".

The women's tournament brought many better contests - home favourite Johanna Konta's second round battle with Croatian Donna Vekic was gripping, as was her quarter-final win against Simona Halep. A 20-year-old Juan Martin del Potro put up an inspired show in 2009 to beat Federer at the US Open.

He has won every set he's played in six matches, and while he did not exactly dominate against the 11th-seeded Berdych, Federer was never in much trouble.

There were some parallels in their Wimbledon wins.

Federer's 16th Grand Slam title arrived in Melbourne when he defeated Murray with a brilliant display of all-court tennis 6-3 6-4 7-6 (13-11).

"This is not why I'm playing tennis, to break records, and this doesn't mean I'm going to stop playing tennis". Cilic had three match points, before Federer produced a Houdini-esque escape and prevailed in five. "It was just that feeling that I wasn't able to give the best", he said. It will be broadcast on ESPN (U.S.) and BBC (UK).

Roger Federer's wait for No. 8 at Wimbledon is over.

"But because it's far away, because of what happened last year, I just like to take the opportunity to thank the people in the very moment, and make them understand, yes, I hope that I'm back". Still, Muguruza was asked her preference for a dance partner at this year's champions' dinner. Holding the trophy now, not dropping a set, I can't believe it yet. He has Uranus, Chiron and Planet-Y (1999 JV127) in simultaneous exaltation, a celestial marvel that can happen only once in a century.

"Roger", Muguruza said with a smile and giggle.

"I'm believing that I have the ability and that I have a good game and I played really well during the tournament".

He immediately shut down his season to rest a knee injury, a decision which meant that for the first time in his professional career he would go through an entire campaign without adding to his trophy haul. It's more straightforward, in my opinion. Liu is from California and Li is from Pennsylvania.

"Obviously, it was very tough emotionally", said Cilic, whose foot was re-taped by a trainer after the second set. Just the way he was playing.

Federer insisted that the semi-final had been close. Next year she might get over the line. Really I was too slow basically to react. It was also tough because of my own team. The Swiss won the first set 6-3.

Serving for the championships with new balls, Federer closed it out after 101 minutes with his eighth ace.

"I still felt the pain".

Britain's Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge were on hand to watch Roger Federer's Wimbledon victory.

As usual, Federer showed no mercy as he ended a five-year title drought at Wimbledon, adding to his 2003-07, '09 and 2012 crowns.

The Williams sisters and Federer, along with Rafael Nadal, have changed the face of tennis in a way that is "almost unheard of", as FiveThirtyEight reported in January.

Rosewall (three times) and Federer (twice) are the only players to win multiple majors after turning 35.
