  Roger Federer broke millions of British hearts by beating local hero Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 in an emotional match to win his 7th Wimbledon title, and his first since 2009. He now shares the record for most Wimbledon wins with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw 

    Federer also extended his record of most Grand Slam titles to 17. Sampras is next with 14 while Rafael Nadal (11) follows Federer among active players 
    Federer, Djokovic and Nadal have won 29 of the last 30 Slam tournament

    Federer returned to the world No. 1 spot for the first time since May 2010, equalling Sampras's record of 286 weeks at the top 

    At 30 yrs and 11 months, oldest man to win Slam title since Andre Agassi won Aus Open in 2003. First time both Wimbledon men's & women's winner (Serena Williams) aged 30 

Marray Triumphs Murray may have lost but Jonathan Marray became the first Briton to win a Wimbledon men's doubles title in 76 years. Marray and Dane Frederik Nielsen beat Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau 4-6, 6-4, 7-6, 6-7, 6-3

Holding the trophy after 3 yrs, it feels like it never left me. This one comes at the right time. It’s amazing to equal Pete (Sampras), my hero... I never stopped believing, it’s a magical moment — Roger Federer
