    Is that Fed's greatest ever Wimbledon?

    What an incredible year he has had...

    After last Wimbledon no one would have predicted it. Simply the best. Number 19!

    Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis win the mixed doubles.

    4th GS for Murray. 23rd for Hingis.

    Cillic was seen crying in the final, frustrated by injury, not being able to give his best in the grand final, one of the biggest moments of his life.

    The injury? Wait for it.... A blister on his foot.

    Unbelievable.
    We won't conquer the world, just the ball, every ******* time.

    What can you say about Federer that hasn't already been said, I can only add that he's a tennis genius and even that's been proffered before many times. To reach eight Wimbledon titles is simply magnificent, his nineteenth Grand Slam trophy in all. Absolutely brilliant.

    Sadly he never really needed to excel today because Cilic was so poor virtually throughout. Roger won this at a canter, having not lost a set during the entire tournament he never looked likely to here. Marin had one fleeting break point early on and that was it - Federer was able to cruise through nearly all of his service games with ease. He still had to play well enough to finish off the opportunities of course, but he was never stretched in any material way. It was as comfortable a win in a Wimbledon final as one could hope for.

    Overall though it doesn't change the simple fact that Federer has done something no other player in history has ever done, that is to win eight titles at SW19. Despite the actual match being something of a let down, this was probably one of those moments in tennis history where people will remember where they were when he won it, because the man deserves all the inevitable praise he's going to get. I'm pleased I was able to watch the great man claim his record-breaking trophy, and who knows, maybe he fancies another one next year at the sprightly age of 36-going-on-37.

    I wouldn't go that far, his closest competition fell by the wayside before they even got to him and he ended up playing a 2nd rate (by comparison) player with injuries of his own. This was virtually given to him. He's had better, harder fought finals where he has prevailed.
