Federer Captures His Seventh Wimbledon Title

Roger Federer celebrating his Seventh Wimbledon Grand Slam title against Andy Murray.

Wimbledon, England- From the beginning of the second set and the court roof was closed, it was Roger Federer’s game.

Playing in eight Wimbledon Grand Slam finals, many people believed Federer didn’t have the same push, need and desire that he had earlier in his career. Federer proved them wrong by dominating the game from the beginning of the second set showing why he was the number one ranked player for a record of 237 weeks.

Federer, now the number one ranked tennis player in the world won his Seventh Wimbledon Title continuing his amazing 7-1 record.

Andy Murray, playing in front of millions of home fans in Great Britain, lost his fourth major finals in a row. Three of those losses coming from Federer himself.

Being criticized in the past for not loving the game and/or not caring about a win or a loss, it was not the case today as Murray fighting away tears, congratulated Federer and thanked his fans for all the support. 

Murray showed growth from the last time he was in a Grand Slam finals, being more patient and cautious of his decision-making. It was on full display when he won the first set 6-4 and made it seem like he could finally beat Federer. He lost the next three 7-5, 6-3 and 6-4.
