Titre et nouveau record pour Roger Federer à Wimbledon

Wimbledon: Roger Federer bat Berdych et rejoint Cilic pour sa onzième finale sur le gazon londonien

Wimbledon: Roger Federer bat Berdych et rejoint Cilic pour sa onzième finale sur le gazon londonien

En 2003, Federer soulevait son premier trophée majeur. Mais une question subsiste: disputera t-il un ou plusieurs tournois avant la quatrième et dernière levée du Grand Chelem?

Il fait partie des anomalies statistiques, de l'impossible devenu possible.

A presque 36 ans (il les fêtera le 8 août), Roger Federer a donc ajouté une ligne à sa légende en remportant dimanche un huitième Wimbledon et un dix-neuvième tournoi du Grand Chelem en dominant facilement Marin Cilic, diminué par une ampoule sous le pied gauche, en trois manches (6-3, 6-1, 6-4) et 1h41 de jeu.

Il ne reste bientôt plus d'adjectifs pour qualifier Roger Federer. Et dire qu'il n'a pas l'intention de s'arrêter là... Difficile de ne pas y voir l'effet de sa préparation très allégée en termes de tournois joués. Le Bâlois termine son tournoi sans avoir concéder le moindre set. Impérial, du début à la fin.

Cilic, pour sa deuxième finale en Grand Chelem, a fait front mais sans donner l'impression d'être en capacité de priver Federer d'un premier titre à Londres en cinq ans. Mais tout de même 2 Majeurs, si l'on ajoute le titre sur la terre battue de Roland-Garros en 2016.

Il était redevenu un favori, cette année, après son titre inattendu à l'Open d'Australie et les difficultés rencontrées par le Serbe Novak Djokovic et l'Ecossais Andy Murray, tenant du titre.
