As a writer, I was dreading this moment. Federer was the favourite to win the Wimbledon title, and I did not know if I had it in me to describe the man’s genius. I had run out of fancy adjectives, fancy phrases and had just no where to go(just like Federer’s opponents this year).
His consistency forces me to come up with something different every time and I don’t think I have it in me to do it this time. And here is where I understand the plight of his opponents, they have tried all sorts of things this year, but Federer has managed to trump them every time.
No matter who you are, be it a writer or a tennis player, Roger’s consistency is always going to make you work hard for your money.
Centre Court witnessed a proper schooling today. Federer didn’t put a foot wrong, he was up for the big moment, and he delivered, despite the burden of expectations. Federer won 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 to become the only man to win 8 Wimbledon titles.
Federer’s comeback has been nothing short of spectacular, winning 5 titles in 6 tournaments, two of which have been grand slam wins. You really can’t write a better fairy tale, can you?
Marin Cilic can be very proud of the way he played, but when you are up against Federer at his best, there is not much you can do.
This is how Twitter reacted to Federer’s win!

Rafael Nadal won Roland Garros without dropping a set, Roger Federer wins Wimbledon without dropping a set. Everything is normal.

Leo Messi, Michael Jordan, Roger Federer. The best I've seen.

That's some achievement by Roger Federer to not lose a set during the whole of Wimbledon
Almost as impressive as being unbeaten in the SPFL

Roger Federer beats the absolute shit out of you and then smiles at you as if you just got married. Pure evil.

Why is Federer so important? Because he is central to the idea that beauty and perfection can sit so comfortably side by side. And magic.
