Swiss professional tennis player Roger Federer wanted to win the Wimbledon title in London. As Federer last won on 2012 and looking for five years to win. However, his waiting for Wimbledon title has ended.
On Sunday, Federer won the record eighth title defeating over Marin Cilic of Croatia at 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 in the final and also became the first man to win Wimbledon eight times. He improved his Grand Slam title count to 19th.
After beating Cilic of Croatia in the final match, Federer said “I always believed that I could maybe come back and do it again. And if you believe, you can go really, really far in your life, and I did that. And I’m happy I kept on believing and dreaming and here I am today for the eighth. It’s fantastic.”
Federer further said that he needs to take more time off to win more title. “I’ve got to take more time off. Not to drop a set it’s magical, I can’t believe it just yet, it’s too much really. It’s just belief, that I can achieve such heights. I wasn’t sure I would ever be here in another final. But I always believed I could maybe come back and do it again.”
When asked about boys and girls trophy ceremony, he said that the girls come for the final and the boys have no sign what is happening. “They have no clue what’s on. They think it’s probably a nice view and a nice playground.”
“But it’s not quite like that here, so one day hopefully they’ll understand. They enjoy to watch a little bit. They come for the finals, I guess.”
Talking about Cilic’s struggling in the final match, Federer said that “It’s cruel sometimes and he’s a hero so congratulations on a wonderful tournament. Sometimes you don’t feel great in the final and it’s cruel.”
