Federer had last won a Major title prior to this at 2012 Wimbledon. Now He is the only man in history who has won five or more titles at three different Grand Slam events.

He knew what was he doing and he needed this title at any cost. It’s always a treat to watch these two old rivals. Right after the game, Nadal said, ” Today I worked hard and fought a lot, but probably Federer deserved it more than me.” After winning the game Federer broke in tears and said that he knows everyone works very hard, but he doesn’t like to shout about it.
