Cilic in pain and tears in Wimbledon final against Federer

Only weeks shy of his 36th birthday, Federer said his 19th major was even more special because all of his family - wife Mirka and the couple's two sets of twins - were courtside for the straight-sets hammering of Marin Cilic.

Federer's victory on Sunday handed the Swiss a record eighth Wimbledon singles title, and his 19th major overall.

"So lovely that I have trouble actually judging the quality of his tactics and strategy sometimes because I'm just so swept away by the aesthetic quality of his shots and I think that's very important to him and part of the interesting thing about his game is that he strives to be attractive and Cilic was no match for him in part because of that enduring", said Thomas.

Referring to that victory over Federer last month, Haas joked and said: "Of course it's a highlight for me no question, since this is my previous year, I'll definitely take that and can tell him for the rest of his life that when he won his eighth (Wimbledon), I beat him (the month before)". He then lost to Novak Djokovic in both the 2014 and '15 finals.

"But I always believed".

"I grew up with bonus points, believe it or not, back in the 90s".

"Here am I today with the eighth. You could see he started not being able to push off as good and then he started giving us a little bit of a signal that it was not correct 100 percent again, so then obviously we knew that it was a problem".

Commenting on Federer reaching 19 major titles, Haas concluded: "It's a joke, it's insane, I mean it's 19 now it's unbelievable".

He also skipped the entire claycourt season.

"Honestly, ever since I had the year I had last year, I do think probably like a year ahead of time with my schedule, fitness schedule, tournaments I would like to play".

"The physios here helped me over the last 30 hours".

Those berths are now filled by Dominic Thiem, Stan Wawrinka, Wimbledon runner-up Marin Cilic, Alex Zverev, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.

"After our match in 2001, there is no way I would have thought I could surpass him, I never thought that would be possible in my wildest dream".

The trainer and doctor were summoned before Cilic hid his head in his towel in a desperate attempt to compose himself. So Halep continues at No. 2, with Konta going from No. 7 to No. 4.
