And afterwards, Federer strongly hinted that his appetite for winning major titles will not show any signs of diminishing. The seven-time Wimbledon Champion owns a 163-24 record on grass, while Cilic own s a 60-25 record on grass.
At 35 years 342 days, Federer is the oldest man in the Open Era to win the Wimbledon title and the oldest man to win a Grand Slam title since Ken Rosewall won the 1972 Australian Open aged 37 years 62 days.

Cilic leads all players with 130 aces during the Wimbledon fortnight.
He appeared to have pulled himself together physically and mentally in the third set, but Federer again stole a break at a crucial midway point. The Swiss has saved 80 percent of the break points he has faced (16/20) while Cilic has saved just 58 percent of break points faced (14/24).

Federer has now won 19 Grand Slams, the most by a male player in the Open era, out of 29 final appearances. Brit William Renshaw also won the London tournament seven times, between 1881 and 1889.
