Federer a Grand Slam Champion Again at Wimbledon (ABC News)

Up in the players' box on Centre Court, Roger Federer's twin daughters squirmed, yawned, made funny faces and then applauded the new Wimbledon champion. The girls turn 3 this month. They were 6 months old the last time Federer won a Grand Slam title. "The victory today is a dream come true for me and my family, you know, seeing them there," he said. "It's big." At 30, Federer showed the kids what he can do, and strengthened his contention he's far from finished. Federer ended a Grand Slam drought and equaled a Wimbledon record by winning the tournament for the seventh time Sunday, beating Andy Murray of Britain, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.

The 30-year-old Federer finally equaled Pete Sampras' record at the All England Club, and won his 17th Grand Slam title overall, by beating Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 on Sunday. "I'm happy that closing the roof maybe helped me today because I wasn't sure if that was going to help me or not," said Federer, who took advantage of the windless court and won 65 of the 117 points played indoors. Once Murray's forehand landed wide on match point, Federer collapsed to the grass with tears welling in his eyes. He got up quickly and shook hands with Murray at the net.

Roger Federer’s self belief didn’t waver, even when the titles started to go to younger players. The record men’s Grand Slam champion yesterday overcame local favorite Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 to win his seventh Wimbledon title and regain the top ranking in tennis one month shy of his 31st birthday. It was Federer’s 17th major championship, and the first since his victory at the 2010 Australian Open reduced Murray, 25, to tears. “I knew how close I was for the last few years, and some people didn’t quite see that, maybe out of different reasons,” Federer said after joining Pete Sampras and William Renshaw with a record seven titles at the All England Club in London.

Roger Federer sweetly made delicate volleys drop as if it were no trouble at all. He ferociously aimed his one-handed backhand deep into the corners of Centre Court, making the ball land on lines and kick up chalk. He relentlessly kept attacking with his forehand, taking it crosscourt and up the lines.

When Roger Federer went out of the French Open to Novak Djokovic in May, he faced some disconcerting debate about his future. Finished as a tennis force? The notion will seem laughable today when he is not only officially confirmed as the leading performer in his chosen occupation anywhere in the world but knows that within seven days he will have held that accolade for longer than anyone since records were first kept. As of this morning he has equalled Pete Sampras's record as No 1 men's player for a total of 285 weeks, which equates to more than five years, and there can be an end to the questions of whether he will be able to add any more, or continue to live with the younger generation.

What fantastic tennis! What a high quality match! It was so exciting, I couldn't watch it after the first set - road around on the bus and checked from time to time on the score with my husband. It was thrilling tennis when I got to see it - so many deep shots, attacking shots and surprise brilliant drop shots & volleys - lots of exciting smashes too! You made it look so easy, once again! Bravo to you & your whole team & familyl! Looking forward to seeing you in Toronto!

Still basking in the warm sunlight of your victory. The ride to the top with you was thrilling, and just as all great and perfect things are, worth the wait. Oh and on a side note, do you need a nanny to stay at home with those beautiful babies of yours ? Why yes, I'd love to ! Just say the word, and I'll free-up ! Such cutie-pies !
