‘It’s just belief, that I can achieve such heights’

BALLET DANCER WITH A BANDANNA: Roger Federer celebrates after defeating Marin Cilic  6-3, 6-1, 6-4 to win a record eighth Wimbledon title. Three weeks short of 36, the Swiss now has 19 majors, more than any man in history. “It’s just belief, that I can achieve such heights. I wasn’t sure I would ever be here in another final but I always believed I could maybe come back and do it again,” Federer said later. (AFP picture)

The Federers’ twin girls Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, who were there when he beat Andy Murray in the 2012 final, and twin boys Leo and Lennart, who were not, watched their father kiss the trophy on Sunday. Their mother Mirka is on the right. “I’ve got to take more time off,” Federer joked. (Reuters)
