Federer wins record 8th Wimbledon title as Cilic crumbles





Ruthless Roger Federer thrashed suffering Croat Marin Cilic 6-3 6-1 6-4 to become the first man to win eight Wimbledon singles crowns on Sunday, five years after landing his seventh.

The Swiss player, who was appearing in his 11th Wimbledon final, was challenged early on as the Croat stood up to him.

But once he broke a nervous Cilic in the fifth game of the opening set the match became a no-contest.

Cilic was overwhelmed, physically and mentally, and Federer claimed victory in less than two hours to become the oldest man to claim the title in the professional era.
