Wimbledon Hangover Woes

Roger Federer has been crowned this year’s Wimbledon winner, after beating Marin Cilic on Sunday. This is his 19th major crown and he has moved to the top of the all-time list of male Wimbledon champions. The most humbling part of this? His interview this morning with the press after what sounded like a decent night.

Federer admitted he woke up with a rather sore head after getting back to bed at 5 am on Monday morning. It was his eighth win, to be fair, so can we really blame him?

He attended the champions’ dinner with the women’s winner, Garbine Muguruza.

Right after the match, Federer joked, “I should take more time off”, and challenged the younger competitors to up their game if they wanted to beat him next year. Since 2003, Federer, Nadal, Murray, and Djokovic have all taken the title, without any new names coming through.

Andy Murray left Wimbledon last week after a hip injury caused him to play one of his worst games yet. The exact nature of the injury was not disclosed; however, it must have been painful enough for him to give up his opportunity for another Wimbledon win. He will be taking the next few months off, missing the US Open, but should be back by next year.

Well done to Roger Federer for his win, and Garbine Muguruza for hers!
