ANOTHER ONE: Champ Roger Federer

Appearing in his 11th Wimbledon final, the Swiss maestro was challenged early on by his opponent.

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 - 22 days before his 36th birthday.

Cilic required a medical timeout after surrendering the second set in 25 minutes - a problem apparently with his foot - but it was his gees that was stukkend.

Federer missed a first match point when a forehand went wide but converted the second with his eighth ace of the match.
