If Roger Federer is supposed to be showing signs of slowing down, someone forgot to give him that memo.
The 35-year-old capped off a tremendous run to the Wimbledon title, finishing with a straight sets victory over Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 in the men’s final.
This title is the eighth in Federer’s career, which moves him past Pete Sampras and William Renshaw for the most in the history of the tournament.
It’s also the second Grand Slam Federer has won in the calendar year, adding Wimbledon to the Australian Open. He sat out the French Open to get ready for the grass court section of the season.
Federer now has 19 Grand Slam championships for his career. Unless he decides to rest, he’ll go for No. 20 at the U.S. later this summer.

If anyone is waiting for Roger Federer to slow down, it might be a while. The man is aging like a fine wine, and the way he looked against Marin Cilic reminds you of a man who is playing like he’s 25 instead of 35. He has won two Grand Slams this year, and don’t be surprised if he wins the U.S. Open later this summer. It’s impressive to witness what he’s doing.
