The king has returned. Federer won an record-equalling seventh Wimbledon title at the same time extending his legacy to 17th Grand Slam crown (in case you’re not aware, that is the current record). Had Murray won, he would end Britain’s 76-year wait for an All England Club men’s champion. So history is everywhere in this final. The game finished 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.
Fed was great, back to his best. Murray couldn’t hold his temper and never looked like staging a fight back after going 2-1 down. He looked tired by the fourth set. I thought the match against Djokovic was much more entertaining than the final. Anyway, I am glad Fed won.
Roger Federer, the greatest player to ever play the game? Not many people would argue that. It’s great to see him crowned at a major tournament after more than 2 years, when many people was suggesting that Federer was past it, that his genius was fading and that he was there for the taking. Today, the new world no.1 was too good for Britain’s no.1, but as Boris Becker said”There is no shame in losing to Roger Federer.”
