Federer Admits It Has Been a Tough Couple of Years

With a seventh Wimbledon title and a record 17th Grand Slam success to his name as well as being reinstated as world no.1, Roger Federer now admits he has successfully come through what he terms ‘a tough couple of years’.

Federer admitted his record-equaling seventh London SW19 triumph, tying him with Pete Sampras, had come as a relief. “When it all happened I was just so happy that it was all over and that the pressure was gone basically," he said. “I guess that came due to the tough loss I had here last year. There were a couple of tough moments for me the last couple years."


After Two Years, Williams is Proud of Her Performance

Serena Williams can't conceal her pride of achievement after winning a fifth Wimbledon title two years after a series of serious health scares which left her doubting her tennis. "Coming here and winning today is amazing because, you know, literally last year I was ranked almost 200. It's been an unbelievable journey for me," said the 30-year-old whose defeat of third seed Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 returns her to fourth in the world.


Federer Hopes He Never Tires of Lifting Wimbledon Trophies

Roger Federer hopes he never grows tired of collecting Wimbledon trophies after claiming his seventh with a 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 defeat of Andy Murray. "Any Grand Slam final, particularly here at Wimbledon, is unusual.  You never quite get used to (winning) it," said the 30-year-old, now back to No. 1.

"I know the occasion and how big it was for Andy and myself.  I'm happy I got a victory today, but obviously it was a very, very special."


Marray is a Surprise Champion for Great Britain

British journeyman Jonathan Marray was proud to have set a winning example for Andy Murray by claiming a surprise Wimbledon doubles title for Britain.

The team comprising the British journeyman and Dane Frederik Nielsen defeated Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau  4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-5), 6-7 (5-7), 6-3 to make history for the hosts. "I'm sure Andy was watching," said the 31-year-old Marray, whose career prize money total was around $400,000 before his big win worth another $195,000 to him."
