Federer - aggressive tennis was the key

Federer won his sixth Wimbledon crown back in 2009 but he was made to wait another three years before equalling Pete Sampras' record of seven titles after a succession of quarter-final defeats. And the Swiss legend put his success this year down to a more aggressive mentality.

"This year, I guess, I decided in the bigger matches, to take it more to my opponent instead of waiting a bit more for the mistakes," Federer said. "This is, I guess, how you want to win Wimbledon, by going after your shots, believing you can do it, and that's what I was able to do today. It's special."

“Today was unique because of playing Andy. Obviously, being able to play or finish a match under the roof, I don't think that's ever been done before here for a final. So that's been different, as well. I'm happy I got a victory today, but obviously it was very, very special."

"This one hasn't quite sunk in yet for some reason. I guess I was trying to be so focused in the moment itself that when it all happened I was just so happy that it was all over and that the pressure was gone basically."

Federer's victory means he's returned to the top of the world rankings, becoming the second oldest person to be ranked world number one after Andre Agassi.
