"I hope I can come back next year to try to defend the title", he concluded. He would also become the second man to win 8 titles at the same Grand Slam.

Federer, 35, finished the contest in one hour and 41 minutes to claim his first Wimbledon title since 2012, and became the oldest man in the Open Era to win the title.

Federer has another highest in number of Grand Slams topping 19 in all four global venues. "I feel like I'm working part-time these days", Federer said.

Federer has had a spectacular 2017 so far. Federer didn't lose a single set throughout the competition, the first to do so at a Wimbledon since Björn Borg in 1976, an fantastic feat for the 35-year-old. "It's magical, I can't believe it yet".

# Federer will rise to World No 3 (behind Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal) for his best ranking since August previous year.

Federer dominated an anti-climactic final in which Cilic battled both nerves and a foot injury.

'It is very special and from day one to finals day, Centre Court is always packed and we appreciate that. Federer leads the first set 4-2. He has now surpassed former U.S. star Pete Sampras to win the highest number of men's singles titles at Wimbledon. On 3 of four previous occasions, Nadal or Federer have gone on to win US Open also.
