Roger Federer outlines his goals for the rest of his career

Roger Federer outlines his goals for the rest of his career

Nike was supremely confident of Roger Federer winning Sunday's men's Wimbledon tennis final, airing a brand new 30-second TVC moments after the Swiss master lifted the Champion's Trophy.

Federer followed that up by defeating Cilic past year in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, but Federer is 35 and Cilic, at 28, is one of the biggest hitters in the game.

The ad, by Wieden + Kennedy, comes with plenty of attitude, a pumping soundtrack and warns "If you are not here to cut the grass get off my lawn".

Sunday's straight-sets cruise meant he was the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to win the title without dropping a set.

And with just few weeks left to his 36th birthday, Federer insisted that if his health permits then he would be playing the tournament until he is 40. I wasn't sure if I'd be in a final again after past year, especially some tough losses to Novak [Djokovic] in 2014 and 2015.

As the 35-year-old nursed the mother of all hangovers, pictures emerged showing ladies champion Garbine Muguruza sunning herself on a yacht in Ibiza ahead of her epic win over former champion Venus Williams.

Federer claimed his 19th Grand Slam title 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 and at 35 is Wimbledon's oldest men's victor of the modern era, succeeding Arthur Ashe, who was nearly 32 when he won in 1976. People wouldn't believe me if I said that.

"I wasn't sure I would ever be here in another final after a year ago", said Federer, who turns 36 in three weeks' time and who has now broken the tie for seven Wimbledon titles he shared with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw.

The Trump administration isn't taking military options off the table. "The president is fully aware of those", said Gorka. Moon has said he would use both dialogues and pressures to resolve the standoff over North Korea's nuclear program.

"Here am I today with the eighth".

I admire Federer for his poise more than his power, the grace with which he handles himself in victory as well as defeat, the patience with which he answers questions he has heard a hundred, if not a thousand, times.

"I always believed that I could maybe come back and do it again". From what we've seen this year from the two renaissance men of tennis, this should be a wake-up call for the locker room and I want to see what the rest of the competition does.

Federer, seeded No. 3, won every set he played throughout the two-week run in this year's tournament to capture his second Grand Slam of the year. Because of them, I think I became a better player.

'I hope it isn't my final match here and hopefully I can come back next year and defend the title'. "That's where he is and that's from one sportsman to another - perhaps that's the biggest compliment I can give, the greatest of all time, full stop".

"Once you step on the court, you see the crowd, you see the final, you see I'm here playing another Wimbledon final", said Muguruza.

"I have to check if it's worth chasing it".

"Eventually I have found my way to see what is possible and how to motivate myself".
