"The goal is definitely to be here again next year to try and defend", he said. Many could have not believe that Federer is looking for his second Grand Slam title.

Federer's 8th Wimbledon title breaks the tie with two other tennis greats, William Renshaw and Pete Sampras who both won seven, and he became the first man to win Wimbledon without dropping a set since Bjorn Borg did it in 1976.

This is Federer's 19th Grand Slam victory. He moves like he did ten years ago!' 'Federer defies reason', said the former World No. 4 Tim Henman.

Roger Federer is already planning his return to Wimbledon next year after cruising to a record-breaking eighth title with a straight-sets victory against a distressed Marin Cilic.

Federer has now won 19 Grand Slams, the most by a male player in the Open era, out of 29 final appearances.

The sense of inevitability was intensified when Cilic was visibly upset at 3-0 in the second set as it looked as though the blister would force the first withdrawal from a men's singles final at Wimbledon since 1911.

"I wasn't serving very good today because of that". "I've had an unbelievable journey here and played the best tennis of my life". He has now become just the third man in the Open Era to win multiple Grand Slam titles without dropping a set.

However, Federer was at another level and showed no mercy as he won the match easily.

Roger Federer breaks Marin Cilic in the third set to lead 4-3. He also skipped the claycourt season, including the French Open, to focus on his Wimbledon preparations. "I hoped to have a chance maybe one day to be in a Wimbledon final and have a chance to win the tournament".

Federer also won the Australian Open this year.

"I guess it's again disbelief that I can achieve such heights and I wasn't sure I would ever be here again in another final", he said.

Though Cilic did not appear to be carrying an injury in the following games he was evidently struggling to hold his own as Federer, a seven-time champion at SW19, produced tennis of a standard to rival any during his illustrious career.
