Roger Federer wrote tennis history again on Sunday by beating Marin Cilic 6-3 6-1 6-4 in a dominant final. Seeing only the beginning of the match, we could believe it would be a tough one for Roger, as Cilic started playing aggressive and fearless.

But then the Croatian started to feel a severe pain in his left foot, and he wasn't able to play at his best level. He cried a lot at the end of the first set, called doctors who tried to tape his foot but it wasn't enough.

Federer managed to stay focused, be under control and dictate points, and after an hour and 41 minute he won the match, conquering his 19th Grand Slam title and the eighth at Wimbledon, which is an absolute record. After a disappointing second round exit in the men's doubles draw, Jamie Murray brought a joy to Great Britain and won the mixed title with the veteran Martina Hingis.

They defeated Henri Kontineen and Heather Watson 6-4 6-4. It's Jamie's second mixed Major title after 2007 Wimbledon with Jelena Jankovic, while Hingis won her sixth mixed Grand Slam title. As for juniors, Alejandro Fokina became the first Spanish winner in this draw as he defeated Alex Geller from Argentina by 7-6 6-3.
