The Swiss attended the traditional champions' dinner with women's winner Garbine Muguruza, although the pair did not dance as Federer said: "When there's no music whatsoever it's hard to get going". "So I just have to check the situation, if it's worth it to run after it or not".

In pain and in tears, Marin Cilic never really had a chance. "I knew that I cannot give my best on the court".

And should Cilic lift a second Grand Slam title to add to his Flushing Meadows juggernaut ride three years ago, it would be an era-ending triumph, the first time for 15 years that anyone outside the 'big four' of Federer, Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic has lifted the title. His form at Wimbledon was superb, and although he didn't face a top 5 player, he still had to face some high-quality opposition.

He said: 'I have more poles than most.

A lot has changed in the years since Federer clinched his first grand slam trophy at Wimbledon.

He played a similar final at Wimbledon 14 years ago against big-serving Mark Philippoussis, when short rallies, natural gut strings and serve-volley were the norm. Cilic sat and covered his head with a white towel. "Sometimes you don't feel great in the final and it's cruel". They did so much for me. "I am surprised that it's this good", Federer said. "You could see he started not being able to push off as good and then he started giving us a little bit of a signal that it was not correct 100 percent again, so then obviously we knew that it was a problem".

There have been times, though, when folks wondered whether he was done winning major tournaments. One of them is going to be ranked No. 1 by the end of the year. The last hour I have finally felt somewhat OK again. My level was on a position where it hasn't been before on grass, so I'm extremely satisfied with that. He skipped the French Open to prepare for Wimbledon and tore through that draw without losing a set.

The win moves Federer past Pete Sampras and William Renshaw, who each won seven Wimbledon titles for the most in men's history of the event first held in 1877.

Cilic is no exception, as he hailed his opponent's longevity, and will to continuously improve.

But having seen the new British darling of the Centre Court fall just short in Thursday's straight sets semi-final defeat to Venus Williams, Pierce and Croft believe she must add a few new ingredients if she is to rule the tennis planet. I remember playing Pat Rafter on Suzanne Lenglen in Paris and I was playing for double points in grand slams.

He has spent a total of 302 weeks as the ATP's No. 1 player in his career, a record.
