The 35 year old Swiss took apart the 28-year-old Croatian, making him a well deserved record holder for the most male single titles in the British championship.
His last victory on the grass courts of Wimbledon came back in 2012 when he beat our own Andy Murray who was knocked out in a shock defeat earlier this week.

When interviewed about his plans to retire from Tennis Federer said recently:
Health has definitely a role to play in my decision-making, no doubt about it.
But I haven’t made any decisions moving forward, how far am I looking at the Tokyo Olympics or anything like that. I haven’t.
Since the injury, honestly everything has been very much reset, that I just go sort of I’m planning till the end of the year, then I know what I’m going to play at the beginning of next year, so forth.
Maybe I think a year ahead, but it’s just important to stay on track with the plan.
Congrats Roger. You deserve it!
