Wimbledon 2017: Roger Federer wins eighth Wimbledon title
In a match that lasted for about 1 hour, 41 minutes, Roger Federer clinched his eighth historic title beating Malin Cilic 6 – 3, 6 – 1, 6 – 4. With this win, he’s the oldest man to win a Wimbledon title in the open era surpassing the records of Pete Sampras and William Renshaw tied at seven apiece and also upsetting his own record he set at the Australian Open earlier in the year when he won his eighth title.
When the WTA Rankings get updated on Monday, Federer will move from fifth place to number three. He has won a total of 19 Grand Slams at the age of 35. He has also won the most title by a male at the All England Club.
