Roger Federer wins Wimbledon for a record of 8th time in his career

The Swiss tennis player Roger Federer has won his eighth Wimbledon title.

He defeated Martin Cilic in straight sets 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 to win a record eighth Wimbledon tournament.

The Croatian world No6 had slipped during the first set, which Federer won 6-3, seemingly hampering his movement from that point on, and with the score 3-0 in the second, the player was in tears while a trainer and supervisor attended to him.

It seemed as though Cilic was on the point of abandoning the match, which would make him the first Wimbledon finalist to withdraw since 2011. //Actuantes//
