And he did it at 35, without dropping one set during his run to his 19th Grand Slam. Best ever!
Roger Federer is a Wimbledon champion for a men’s record eighth time, defeating Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 in Sunday’s final.
The win moves Federer above both Pete Sampras and William Renshaw, who each have won seven titles at the grass-court major.
The 35-year-old Federer became the oldest champion at the All England Club, and he won his second Grand Slam of the year in impeccable fashion by not dropping a set throughout the two-week run. Federer joins Bjorn Borg (1976) as the only men in the Open era to win Wimbledon without losing a set, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
