"I mean, I don't see anything that would indicate really Roger is getting older or anything like that", said Berdych, who wore sneakers with a silhouette of Djokovic's face on the tongue because his own usual shoes were uncomfortable. Federer, who turns 36 on 8 August, would also be the oldest men's champion at the All England Club in the Open era, which began in 1968. This is the 11th Wimbledon Finals for Roger Federer without dropping a set.
After clinching the final point of the title-decider, Federer was overcome with emotions. He's looking set to win the first set and is leading 5-3.
He also won the Halle Open prior to Wimbledon, his grass court tuneup.
Roger Federer has claimed his 8th Wimbledon title on Sunday ending the dreams of an emotional Croatian Marin Čilić in the final on Sunday. That breaks an Open Era tie with Pete Sampras and an all-time tie with William Renshaw.
He last won the tournament in 2012 and is now tied with Pete Sampras on seven Wimbledon titles. I wasn't sure if I'd be in a final again after a year ago, especially some tough losses to Novak in 2014 and 2015.

Indeed, it is only by virtue of Falcinelli’s prowess in the final third that Crotone still remains in contention to survive. In Romelu Lukaku, Koeman has a player with the capability of firing Everton to far headier heights than seventh place.
The victory increased Federer's record of Grand Slam titles earned in the men's game to 19.Cilic, the 2014 U.S. Open champion, could never find his range in the match, and constantly was hitting serves, forehands and backhands beyond the boundaries of the court.
Roger Federer brushed aside the challenge of Marin Cilic to land a record eighth Wimbledon men's singles title.
"If Cilic is going to have a chance, I think that is where he really needs to be super-aggressive from the back of the court and try to take Federer's time away to stop him dictating points".
It may not have mattered, considering how dominant Federer was at Wimbledon and throughout the year.
Marin Cilic shows looks dejected during Sunday's final. Nicklaus won 18 majors. Despite winning the title in his thirties, he was still a year younger than Arthur Ashe. Victor of the Australian Open, in January, the former N.1 world (N.5 currently) is winning his second major trophy this season, the first in London since 2012.
