Roger Federer Wins His 8th Wimbledon Title

Federer passes William Renshaw and Pete Sampras for most Wimbledon titles ever.

Swiss tennis star Roger Federer claimed victory over Croatian Challenger Marin Čilić for his eighth Wimbledon title in eleven tries. With the match only lasting one hour and 41 minutes, Federer won in straight sets, impressing the All England Club crowd with a 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 straight sets victory over Čilić. Despite already winning the Wimbledon title seven previous times, Federer said the feeling never gets old. “It’s magical,” Federer said courtside after the match. “I can’t believe it yet. It’s too much. I kept on believing and dreaming and here I am today for my eighth title. I hope to be back to defend it next year.”

The victory also marks Federer’s 19th total grand slam victory, having already won both the U.S. Open and the Australian Open five times, as well as the French Open once. Federer’s victory on the grass courts also makes him the most dominant male player ever at Wimbledon, passing William Renshaw and Pete Sampras, who each have seven Wimbledon titles to their names.
