The people of England wanted to see an upset on Sunday, instead, they witnessed history at the All England Club. Roger Federer defeated Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 in the Wimbeldon Men's Final and earned his seventh crown on the grass surface, a mark that ties him with Pete Sampras for the most all-time.
The victory will also help Federer, 30, reclaim the No. 1 spot in the World Rankings, which come out on Monday.
Meanwhile, Murray failed to become the first British-born player to win the Wimbeldon title in decades. His performance, however, didn't go unnoticed as the hometown tennis fans gave him cheers during his runner-up speech. The support led to Murray breaking down into tears in an emotional movement.
In the end, Federer collects his all-time best 17 major championship and improves his already impressive resume.
