Roger Federer won a record eighth Wimbledon title and became the tournament's oldest champion Sunday with a straight-sets victory over injury-hit Marin Cilic who dramatically broke down in tears midway through the final.The seventh-seeded Croatian, the 2014 U.S. Open champion, sobbed inconsolably and buried his head in his towel as his title dream slipped away. He had his left foot taped at the end of the second set but it was in vain as Federer became the first player since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to win Wimbledon without dropping a set in the entire tournament. Federer then served up two love service games before claiming the opener 6-3 off a Cilic double-fault, the Croatian's second of the final.Federer pounced again with a break for 4-3 and wrapped up the one-sided final with a second-serve ace to complete his coronation after just 1 hour, 41 minutes.
