Roger Federer continued to build on his already-impressive resume by beating crowd-favorite Andy Murray at the All-England Club on Sunday 4–6, 7–5, 6–3, 6–4.
Federer didn't have the toughest draw, but took down Novak Djokovic in the semifinals to set up a showdown against Murray.
FedEx tied Pete Sampras' record of seven Wimbledon titles and brought his record Grand Slam singles total to 17. Not only did Federer add to his collection of trophies atop his mantle, but he also reclaimed the No. 1 world ranking, vaulting past Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
Many pegged Federer to fail at the hands of Djokovic, but the 30-year-old Switzerland native refused to fall. Even after losing the first set to Murray, Federer battled back and won the final three sets.
Federer made sure that he was the primary focal point in the discussion of the greatest tennis players of all time with this victory. Fortunately for him—and the sport of tennis—he's nowhere near done.
Look for Federer to use the momentum from this victory to remain hot heading into the U.S. Open at the end of August.
