Andy Murray is weighing up his options on how to proceed regarding his hip injury

The incomparable Swiss turned his 11th Wimbledon final into a procession as tearful seventh seed Cilic, battling his nerves and a bloody blister, suffered a torrid afternoon.

The normally composed tennis great and newly crowned Wimbledon champ Roger Federer, 35, was more than a little groggy when fronting up to media today, after a huge night of celebrations.

Federer won his 18th Slam in Australia in January on his return to the tour before adding the Indian Wells and Miami Masters back-to-back and a ninth Halle grasscourt title.

His discomfort was reflected in his statistics. She was playing in her ninth Wimbledon singles final, winning in 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007 and 2008.

A tiny blister foiled months of preparation and Cilic's lifelong dream.

That problem never went away, but Cilic stayed in the match, trying to hold serve and struggling to even win one point when the ball was in Federer's hand.

It was Federer's record eighth Wimbledon title, record 19th major title. Four years after that he defeated Andy Murray under Wimbledon's new roof in an attacking display from a set-down. "Every time I had to do a reaction fast - fast change of movement - I was unable to do that".

"They did so much for me".

Now it's just a matter of how many more he can win. But in any point, obviously if the score would go really badly, I wouldn't push it so much. "At the moment she doesn't look comfortable when she is facing variety from her opponents". He can produce a surprise only to murder it with routine casualness. Many think it's because of Wimbledon's big prize monies, but it isn't necessarily Wimbledon, but all tournaments that this may happen. On the other side, that means the young guys can't catch up. Health comes first. If I do that, maybe things are actually possible I didn't think were'. I played through pain. It was very, very tough to deal with it.

ROGER FEDERER and Lewis Hamilton carved out yet more sporting history yesterday at Wimbledon and Silverstone.

Wimbledon 2017 is finally coming to a close as two of this year's tennis titans prepare to face off on centre court.

Roger Federer poses with the trophy at the Wimbledon Winners Dinner at The Guildhall on July 16, 2017 in London, England.

Hamilton won the British Grand Prix for a record-equalling fifth time, the perfect response to being criticised for missing a promotional event in London last week.

Marcus Willis' hopes of a repeat of last year's heroics in the singles were dashed by his defeat in the final round of qualifying.

With the win, Muguruza moves up to number three on the Porsche Race to Singapore leaderboard, as she seeks to qualify for the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore, presented by SC Global. Rafael Nadal looked good early on but was stopped in the fourth round by Gilles Muller. Roger Federer. Wimbledon champion. "It was just that feeling that I wasn't able to give the best". Like Federer, no sense in trying to write her off.
