Roger Federer wins 8th Wimbledon title

The Swiss player, who was appearing in his 11th Wimbledon final, was challenged early on as the Croat stood up to him.

But once he broke a nervous Cilic in the fifth game of the opening set the match became a no-contest.

Cilic was overwhelmed, physically and mentally, and Federer claimed victory in less than two hours to become the oldest man to claim the title in the professional era.
