About this time last year the Centre Court crowd held their breath as Roger Federer lay face down after tumbling during the fifth set of his semi-final defeat by Milos Raonic. Some of those in attendance that day doubted his physical capabilities to return 12 months later and win a record eighth Wimbledon championship.

Writing off Federer, though, often comes back to haunt you, and that is once again the case. The man described as a “blessed freak of nature” by his arch-rival Rafael Nadal has performed one of his greatest feats in winning a 19th grand-slam title three weeks short of his 36th birthday.
