Roger Federer won his record eighth Wimbledon title by beating broken Marin Cilic in an anti-climactic final.
The Swiss superstar claimed his 19th Grand Slam title at the age of 35 – and became the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to lift the title here without dropping a set.
But the Croat No.7 broke down in tears in his chair during the second set and needed treatment on blisters on his foot. Federer coasted to victory 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 in only one hour and 41 minutes.
He banks another £2.2m to take his on-court career earnings to nearly £82m – but the 15,000 on Centre Court got less value for money as they saw a coronation rather than a contest.
Ever wondered how much tennis stars earn at Wimbledon?
Garbine Muguruza won her first Wimbledon title when she saw off Venus Williams in empathic style on Saturday.
And not only does the Spaniard get the glory of landing the most prestigious title in tennis, but she will also receive a handsome payday, with her exploits landing her £2.2million, reports the Daily Mirror.
This is £200,000 more than last year’s winner and matches the prize money for the men’s title.
