Wimbledon 2017: Roger Federer defeats Marin Colic in final

ALREADY a legend, Roger Federer has elevated even higher into the grand slam stratosphere with an eighth Wimbledon triumph and 19th major success.

Defying age and wounded Marin Cilic, the 35-year-old snared another large chunk of history with a runaway 6-3 6-1 6-4 victory at the sport’s spiritual home.

Hampered by left foot soreness, Cilic struggled to reproduce the sparkling form which had carried him to a maiden All England Club final, dissolving in tears as his hopes slipped away.
