Slam success achieved without losing a set jersey

Postprzez lucyweiweiwei » Pn lip 17, 2017 9:24 am

Roger Federer cemented his reputation as the greatest player to grace his Wayne Ellington Authentic Jersey sport by lifting a record eighth Wimbledon title with a one-sided victory over Marin Cilic, whose thin hopes of an upset were popped by a blister that troubled his movement and tormented his mind.It was an afternoon of sustained emotions but scant drama. Federer, a great Wimbledon favourite since winning his first title in 2003, raced through the match in one hour and 41 minutes and dropped only eight games in a 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 procession.This victory meant the Swiss master, who turns 36 next month, surpassed the big-serving American “Pistol” Pete Sampras and the Victorian-era great, William Renshaw, who claimed seven. Staggeringly, Federer also became the first man to win Wimbledon without dropping a set since Bjorn Borg in 1976.“It is very special to win eight titles,” said Federer. “Wimbledon was always my favourite tournament, and will always be my favourite tournament.“My heroes walked the grounds here. Because of them I think http://www.officialheatauthentic.com/authentic-2-wayne-ellington-jersey.html I became a better player, too.”“And No8 obviously means a lot to me because to be part of Wimbledon history is truly amazing.”What made this victory more remarkable still was that the era when Federer’s racket played like a Stradivarius, and the American writer David Foster Wallace compared watching him to a religious experience, had appeared over for good last year. He was approaching his 35th birthday. He had not won a Grand Slam since 2012. And, worse still, he was struggling with a knee injury – sustained whilst running a bath for his twin daughters – which forced him out of the game for five months.“I have a lot of love for tracks but this is the favourite of the year,” he said. “It has the best combination of corners in the calendar. I Authentic Adidas Mark Fayne Womens Jersey love street circuits but this is a great circuit. They don’t build circuits like this any more with character and history. I am good at this track but the energy I get from the fans – I don’t think any other driver gets that. It lifts you up. From the start I could see the crowd and every time I looked from the corner of my eye I could see everyone standing up cheering – every single lap, everyone standing and http://www.authenticedmontonoilers.com/authentic-mark-letestu-jersey cheering. I feel that is them egging me on and you don’t see that anywhere else in the world.”It was the positive response he had wanted after criticism following his failure to attend an F1 event in London last week. “Arriving with all the smoke and mirrors that was happening, so much negativity trying to pull the weekend down,” he said. “But obviously it had no effect, the fans were out-and-out loving and supporting all weekend.“He was backed once again by the Mercedes executive director, Toto Wolff. “I think sometimes you just need the right impulse to extract maximum performance and that is an answer to the critics,” Wolff said. “I still don’t understand why the British hero is being beaten up before the grand prix and it probably made him even more determined to show his fans how he can drive – and he can drive.”The good news for us – if not his rivals – is that Federer intends to be back again in 2018. “I still love to play and my wife’s totally fine with it,” he added, smiling. “She’s my No1 supporter. She’s amazing. And because I’m playing a little less, I feel like I’m working part-time these days, which is a great feeling.”The tennis gods have been kind to Federer at Wimbledon this year.Andy Murray hobbled out with a hip problem. Novak Djokovic was given the elbow by an inflamed joint. And Rafael Nadal was sunk by a 34-year-old Luxemburger, Gilles Müller, who suddenly played the best tennis of his career. But on the evidence of this fortnight Federer would have been tough to topple whoever was on the other side of the net.While this was his 19th grand slam victory, another record, few would bet against more coming his way. For even now, in the autumn of his career, he stands tallest of all. The eternal – and the immovable.
