Federer wins record eighth Wimbledon crown

The problem with that is nobody dominates on grass in men's professional tennis quite like Federer. He has far less experience, but he does have a Grand Slam win, earning the US Open title in 2014. Federer lifted his eighth Wimbledon title and the 19th Grand Slam of his career on Sunday at Wimbledon.

Roger Federer won a record 8th Wimbledon title on Sunday evening by defeating injury-hit Marin Cilic in straight sets to become the tournament's oldest champion.

In the first set, both men held in their first two service games. The score was 6-3 3-0 at the time.

Though Cilic received frequent treatment for the blister before his match with Federer, the ailment prevented him from changing direction without pain.

Cilic has fired 130 aces at Wimbledon this year and dropped just 10 service games. On the changeover, Cilic began sobbing in his chair, covering his face with a towel as a trainer came to his side.

When Daesh captured Mosul back in 2014, the Iraqi government faced criticism for being unable to defend one of its largest cities. Iraq is facing the challenge of returning residents to their homes in the war-torn city of Mosul.

Cilic breaks down in tears after injury his foot.

During the third set, Cilic gave his best effort sensing that he was one set away from losing the entire tournament. From there, Federer finished the match in straightforward fashion, raising his fists to the air after conquering the field at his favorite event once again.

The seven-time champion at the All England Club will face Marin Cilic on Centre Court for the Wimbledon title. "I had an awesome journey here, played the best tennis of my life". Only Martina Navratilova, with nine, has more SW19 singles gongs.

"The goal is definitely to be here again next year to try and defend", Federer said, as quoted on The Times.

41 - He becomes the first male player in over four decades to win Wimbledon without dropping a set. I kept on believing and dreaming and here I am today with the eighth.
