Federer writes a new history, wins record eighth Wimbledon title

Roger Federer won a record eighth Wimbledon title on Sunday, defeating Marin Cilic 6-3. 6-1, 6-4, becoming the tournament's oldest men's champion of the modern era. This is Federer's 19th overall Grand Slam title.

Federer, 35, last won the grass-court major in 2012. Revelling in the spotlight of having played all his matches on Centre Court, he has hardly been troubled on his way to the final - he did not lose a set.

He has lost serve just four times and spent four and a half hours less on court than Cilic.
