The men’s finals of the 2012 Wimbledon Open was to create history anyhow – be it a win for Roger Federer or Andy Murray. But it was Roger Federer who created one by beating Andy Murray. Even a win for Andy Murray would have gone down in the history books as well.
The victory has given one of the greatest tennis players a lot to cheer about. This is the seventh Wimbledon title for Federer. Apart from this, the win also means that Federer has now won as many as 17 major titles in his career so far. That itself isa big achievement in itself.
Roger Federer defeated Andy Murray of the United Kingdom in four sets – 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4. That is not all; the win also means that Federer is back at the position where he rightly deserves to be – right on the top of the world. Federer has once again become the world no. 1 player intennis.
The win has drawn some amusing conclusions that need to be shared just for the fun of it. Here are some of them.
As Roger Federer won the seventh Wimbledon title, there were two times that the history has repeated itself. Apart from Federer, Pete Sampras and Rafal Nadal also have won seven titles. However, all the three of them were up against the first time finalists, Andy Murray, Pat Rafter and Djokovic respectively.
Roger Federer has regained his world no. 1 status with this win
It was the first time that he was back on top after June 6, 2010. Another tennis great – Pete Sampras was the top player for 286 weeks on the trot. Now, Roger Federer has equaled that record. His last Grand Slam title came in 2010 when he won the Australian Open.
Many congratulations to Roger Federer for making his dream come true!
