The Latest: Hingis and Jamie Murray win at Wimbledon”

The new Wimbledon men's singles champion arrived at the Guildhall in central London looking dapper alongside wife Mirka and beaming as he made his way into the venue. Will always be my favorite tournament. She serves well, she moves well and hits her ground-strokes well.

A lot has changed in the years since Federer clinched his first grand slam trophy at Wimbledon.

Federer's haul of 19 major titles lifts him to joint-fourth on the all-time list of grand slam winners - alongside Helen Wills Moody - with only Margaret Court (24), Serena Williams (23) and Steffi Graf (22) ahead of him.

Alejandro Davidovich Fokina of Spain won the junior title at Wimbledon by beating Axel Geller of Argentina 7-6 (2), 6-3 on No. 1 Court. Five years later he lost one of the greatest Wimbledon matches ever, a marathon baseline battle against Nadal, where his backhand was worn down, finally.

"Then I think Roger spends less energy out there, he's unique in many ways which also makes it easier for him maybe compared to some others who have to work harder on the points". She was playing in her ninth Wimbledon singles final, winning in 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007 and 2008. "It was very, very difficult to deal with it. It didn't hurt so much that it was putting me in tears".

His discomfort was reflected in his statistics. He would never be confronted with another break point.

"My head is ringing", Federer said on Monday morning. I feel the gap's too big.

Even Federer himself began to wonder. "And I'm happy I kept on believing and dreaming, and here I am today for the eighth". He then partied with his team long into the night. "You could see he started not being able to push off as good and then he started giving us a little bit of a signal that it was not correct 100 percent again, so then obviously we knew that it was a problem".

"Very tough emotionally", said Cilic, whose foot was re-taped by a trainer after the second set. "He played through the pain and gave Roger a nicer win", said Cilic's coach Jonas Bjorkman after the match.

It might not have mattered. But if you look at the knowledge we have about rehab and training in all sports now, age is only a number.

Ageless Roger Federer cruised to an historic eighth Wimbledon title for his 19th Grand Slam on Sunday. That's 21 consecutive sets without a loss in the most prestigious tournament in the world.

Feeling refreshed and fully fit, Federer returned to the tour in January and was suddenly playing like the guy of old, rather than like an old guy.

Roger Federer has won the first set 6-3 against Marin Cilic in the men's final at Wimbledon.

Thanks to a shrewd and shortened schedule, the 35-year-old's match win percentage this season (93.9%) doesn't just blow away his modern-day contemporaries, it even rivals his own golden standards between 2004 and 2007. Like Federer, no sense in trying to write her off.

He said: 'I have more poles than most. Federer dropped just eight games in that time.
