Roger Federer just won a record-breaking eighth Wimbledon title


Switzerland's Roger Federer clinched his eighth Wimbledon title Sunday, defeating Croatia's Marin Cilic to win the Men's Singles final match on day 13 of the championships in London.

Federer overwhelmed Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 in just an hour and 41 minutes on Sunday.

The 35-year-old won his first major title at Wimbledon in 2003. That was followed by wins in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2012. Federer experienced a few tough knocks, losing to Novak Djokovic in 2014 and 2015.

Then, in 2016, he took a year off to let his knee heal from surgery.

"I wasn't sure if I was ever going to be here again in another final after last year," Federer told CNN. "But I always believed that maybe I could come back and do it again. And if you believe, you can go really far in your life."

And that, he certainly has. Check out his record-breaking eight trophy lifts, which are accompanied by an entertaining series of hairstyles.
