3 - Federer becomes the new world number three, and with no points to defend in the rest of the year he is perfectly placed to climb to number one.
Following the match, Federer strongly hinted that his appetite for adding to his 19 Grand Slam titles would not diminish.
# Federer and Rosewall both have multiple Grand Slams after turning 35 years old. People would not believe me if I said that.
Among his long list of achievements, Federer becomes the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to win the Wimbledon title without dropping a set.
Federer for the eighth time won the Wimbledon and became the most decorated player in the history of the tournament.

After Federer took the second set, Cilic took time out and a retirement, a first in a hundred years, seemed likely but Cilic returned to battle through the final set.

Federer once said "When I won in 2003, never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would win Wimbledon and have my kids seeing me lift the trophy this is pretty surreal".
He had what looked like blisters on his left foot taped at the start of the third set and willed himself to make it something of a contest.
He last won the tournament in 2012 and is now tied with Pete Sampras on seven Wimbledon titles. The most outstanding point of Federer is that he did not drop a set throughout the tournament. Here's a guy who's already won one major, he's younger than any of the Big Five, and he's won 10 matches at Wimbledon over the last two years.
He also won the Halle Open prior to Wimbledon, his grass court tuneup.
Marin Cilic was able to speak about his injury after his loss on Sunday morning, according to USA Today.

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.
