Tennis - Wimbledon : le grand huit pour Federer

Roger Federer a conquis son 19e titre du Grand Chelem! Le numéro 5 mondial a remporté dimanche son huitième titre sur le gazon de Wimbledon, cinq ans après sa dernière victoire dans son tournoi fétiche.

Avec ce succès, le recordman des trophées en Grand Chelem a dépassé l'un de ses modèles de jeunesse, l'Américain Pete Sampras, et le Britannique William Renshaw, un champion de la fin du 19e siècle avec lesquels il partageait le record de titres à Londres. Sacré pour la première fois à Londres sans avoir perdu le moindre set, il est le deuxième joueur de l'ère Open à s'adjuger au moins huit fois le même tournoi majeur après Rafael Nadal, qui a triomphé pour la 10e fois à Roland-Garros le mois dernier. Face à un Cilic diminué physiquement et qui a du faire appel au soigneur pour un problème au pied gauche, le Suisse n'a pas eu à forcer son talent.

En 2003, Federer soulevait son premier trophée majeur.
