The Swiss won his 8th title in 11 finals that way finally surpassing Pete Sampras and William Renshaw. He also improved his total Grand Slam record, and he now has 19 -- 4 more than Rafael Nadal.

This was the 5th title of the season for 35-year-old Federer, as he also won the Australian Open, Indian Wells, Miami, and Halle.

The first set: The glimpses of battle

Unfortunately, we didn't come close to seeing a match worthy of the Wimbledon final. Marin Cilic was competitive in the first couple of games. He started well and had a first break point in the fourth game. This turned out to be the decisive point of the whole match. From that moment, Cilic didn't come close to another break point as Federer delivered a service masterclass. In the next game, the Croat suffered a break and that was enough for Roger to take his game to the next level. In the ninth game, Cilic's double fault gave Federer a lead of one set to love.

Marin Cilic's injury

The second set continued in the similar fashion. Marin Cilic was unable to find his rhythm and he suffered an early break.

Then a heartbreaking moment happened when we saw Cilic sobbing on the chair, frustrated because of his injury. However, that didn't stop Federer from playing his best tennis. The Swiss took another break and soon he was leading two sets to love.

Despite painful blisters on his foot; Marin Cilic continued to fight bravely.

After a medical timeout, the match resumed. The Croat was strong on his serve again and we could see how desperately he wanted to turn the match around. Suddenly he was full of energy and he even had a chance on Federer's serve. Unfortunately for him, Federer showed no signs of slowing down, the Swiss quickly regained his focus and the result was 2-2.

Despite the obvious pain, Marin Cilic significantly improved his first serve percentage. But Roger patiently waited for the break chance. The chance came in the seventh game of the set and he took it mercilessly. Roger Federer could smell his 8th Wimbledon crown. And it wasn't long until the Swiss found himself in the situation to serve for the championships. In the end, an ace sealed the match and brought Federer the title.
