Federer meets Edberg after 8th Wimbledon title

After the two finals lost with Stefan Edberg in his corner always against Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer took his long chased 8th Wimbledon title today, beating Marin Cilic in a straight-set final.

Affected by a slight physycal problem since the end of the first set, the Croat could do little to avoid an easy 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 defeat, allowing Federer to become the oldest man win the Championships in the Open Era.

Just as he left the Centre Court after the trophy presentation, Federer met Stefan Edberg who congratulated him whith a strong, deeply felt hug and also had the privilege to hold once again that cup, 27 years after his second triumph at SW19. (mc)
