London: Roger Federer needed just one hour and 37 minutes to beat Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 to lift his eighth Wimbledon title and 19th Grand Slam crown.

Roger Federer won a record eighth Wimbledon title and became the tournament’s oldest champion on Sunday with a straight-sets victory over injury-hit Marin Cilic who dramatically broke down in tears midway through the final.

The Swiss superstar’s 11th Wimbledon final, and 29th at the Majors, will also be remembered for the moving sight of the popular Cilic breaking down in tears after slipping 3-0 behind in the second set.
