Roger Federer sheds light on remaining time on tour

Roger Federer Wimbledon 2017 final Roger Federer vs Marin Cilic Marin Cilic

In what was possibly the most one-sided final in years, Roger Federer has won his record eighth Wimbledon title.

Federer became the first player in history to win the men's singles at Wimbledon on eight occasions.

This was the first grand slam men's singles final in the open era between a number three seed (Federer) and a number seven seed (Cilic).

Roger Federer breaks Marin Cilic in the third set to lead 4-3.

To avoid being pelted by the missiles, people started leaving their seats in a surge, said an AFP journalist who was at the game. Part of a wall supporting bleachers seating fans from both sides then collapsed as police starte firing tear gas .

In the second set, in particular, Cilic had to receive attention from his medical staff.

It looked like the Croatian might withdraw, but he played on after receiving applause from the fans. This was his most dominant Wimbledon performance, coming through seven matches without losing a set. The Swiss broke his opponent's serve in the fifth game to go 3-2 up before breaking again in the final game. "Better than holding the trophy and winning today is to be healthy", said Federer, who didn't play in 2016 after his Wimbledon semifinal appearance because of a knee injury.

Two major titles in a matter of months seemed implausible when Federer was sidelined for six months during the second half of previous year with a knee injury. The native of Bosnia-Herzegovina appeared to be hobbled by an injured left foot, and he never really challenged Federer-who didn't drop a single set during his two-week domination at the All England Club. The two of them have made for a remarkable year as the big players like Any Murray and Novak Djokovic have found themselves knocked out time and again. I wasn't sure if I was going to be here after a year ago. He will face Marin Cilic in the final. "I'm happy it's paying off here now". He moves like he did ten years ago!' 'Federer defies reason', said the former World No. 4 Tim Henman.

The Croat was missing out on easy chances letting Federer cruise on the royal road to the eighth Wimbledon title.
