On Sunday morning, Roger Federer defeated Marin Cilic in the 2017 Wimbledon Final. Cilic was not 100 percent fit in the matchup as his left foot suffered from blisters. Federer seemingly took advantage of his opponent by winning the matchup in just three sets. At the age of 35, Federer continues to dominate on the men's side of tennis. His win on Sunday, he became the oldest male player to win the tournament in the Open Era at the age of 35.

With his record set on Sunday, Federer passed one of the men he defeated in the 2001 Wimbledon tournament, Pete Sampras, who tied the record in the year 2000 that was previously held by William Renshaw in 1889.

He also joined Bjorn Borg as the only men's player since 1976 to win the tournament in straight sets. The loss was disappointing for Cilic, who won his only Grand Slam title against Roger in the 2014 U.S. Open.

Federer dominates all three sets

Roger Federer won his first Wimbledon title in five years by dominating Marin Cilic in all three sets of the final by scores of 6-3, 6-1, and 6-4. In the first set, both players got off to rocky starts. However, Federer was able to win the battle 6-3 despite having a few costly errors.

Cilic's foot injury appeared to affect him and Federer did not shy away from taking advantage of his opponent while he was experiencing a good deal of pain.

In the second set, in particular, Cilic had to receive attention from his medical staff.

His pain was obvious at that point as he was seen with tears coming down his eyes during the brief timeout. The injury caused Cilic to have his worst set of the matchup by scoring only a single point.

During the third set, Cilic gave his best effort sensing that he was one set away from losing the entire tournament.

The set was as close as 4-3 at one point before Roger was able to pull away with a 6-4 win. After the victory, Federer let out his emotions by raising both hands in the air in celebration.

Post-match reactions

Marin Cilic was able to speak about his injury after his loss on Sunday morning, according to USA Today.

"I gave my best that's all I could do," said a teary-eyed Cilic. "I've had an amazing journey here and played the best tennis of my life."

Roger Federer, however, was in a bit more of an exciting mood after the win, according to USA Today.

"Better than holding the trophy and winning today is to be healthy," said Federer. "Not dropping a set, the tournament I played is magical. I can't really believe it yet."
