"The goal is definitely to be here again next year to try and defend", he said. Federer also becomes the second man at 30 or over to win multiple Grand Slams in a year since Laver completed the Calendar Slam - winning all four majors in a calendar year - in 1969.

- Roger Federer won the second set 6-1 to take a two-set lead against Marin Cilic.

Federer has another highest in number of Grand Slams topping 19 in all four worldwide venues.

Out of the 8 Wimbledon titles he has won, this was the first time he won it without dropping a single set throughout the tournament.

He has extended his own record of grand slam wins (eight Wimbledon titles, five Australian Open titles, five US Open titles and a solitary victory at Roland Garros). Only Martina Navratilova has more Wimbledon titles - nine.

McCain in 'good spirits' after undergoing surgery for blood clot
McCain's office in a statement said he is doing well after undergoing surgery to remove a blood clot from his eye on Friday. Doctors at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Arizona described the procedure as "minimally invasive" and said it went "very well".

"I wasn't serving very good today because of that".

"I a m incredibly surprised how well this year is going, how well I'm feeling, how I'm managing tougher situations, where my level of play is on a daily basis", added Federer.

Roger Federer with this current victory in Wimbledon Men Single he has brought his tally to 8, which is a world record.

At one point during the second set, Cilic was in tears - which he said was from frustration over not being able to play at his best, not the pain. Physio had to come on the court and give some treatment and painkillers to the Croatian, playing his maiden Wimbledon final. I wasn't sure if I'd be in a final again after previous year, especially some tough losses to Novak in 2014 and 2015. In personal meetings, Federer was leading 6:1 and the last traning match between the players took place in the 1/4 finals of Wimbledon in 2016 and ended the comeback of the Swiss with the score 0:2. From day one to finals day, Centre Court is always packed and it's a dream to play here. We're minutes after the match so we don't know exactly what happened, but Cilic's emotions on court does make clear how brutal tennis can be and how exposed players are. Since both semi-finals were decided, Cilic has accounted for 84.8% of all stakes placed on the match compared to just 15.2% on Federer.
