Federer up to ATP No. 3 after Wimbledon; Muguruza WTA No. 5

Roger Federer is a sporting brand without equal and will get down to business on Sunday

Roger Federer was a tough worse for wear but in good spirits after celebrating his Wimbledon triumph until 5am.

Despite the hangover, it did not take long for the record eight-times Wimbledon men's singles champion to get into his stride.

Federer's latest victory pushed up to No.3 behind Andy Murray and Nadal. That is, he's not going to outrun anybody and he is not going to outjump anybody, but he just seems to have a natural instinct on the court of exactly where the ball needs to be and how to get it there.

In a post-match press conference, when asked who she would prefer to dance with at the dinner, Muguruza said: "Roger".

I admire Federer for his poise more than his power, the grace with which he handles himself in victory as well as defeat, the patience with which he answers questions he has heard a hundred, if not a thousand, times.

With Debug Fresno , the Debug Project and Verily are testing a "potential mosquito control method using sterile insect technique". Aedes aegyptis are likely to bite several times before they are full, increasing the chances of the disease spreading.

The 23-year-old Spaniard, seeded 14th, overcame two set points by Williams to win the first set against the 37-year-old American under the Centre Court roof at the All England Club in London. The last hour or so I'm somewhat okay again.

Federer is 6-1 against Cilic, but the big-serving Croat beat Federer in the U.S. Open semifinals in 2014 on his way to his only major title. "I was sad not to be able to compete previous year (due to injury) as I love playing there and had not missed the event since 2002".

"I really wanted to give my best, " Cilic said, "to try as much as I could". "So handsome that I have trouble actually judging the quality of his tactics and strategy sometimes because I'm just so swept away by the aesthetic quality of his shots and I think that's very important to him and part of the interesting thing about his game is that he strives to be attractive and Cilic was no match for him in part because of that enduring", said Thomas. I grew up watching her play - sorry.

Federer won the Australian Open in January for his 18th Grand Slam title and then made a decision to skip the clay-court season, including the French Open, to prepare for the grass and hard-court seasons, with his eye on Wimbledon. Every time the Swiss has won both the Australian Open and Wimbledon in a single season, he has also gone on to lift the US Open trophy (2004, 2006 and 2007). "Here I am with an eighth title, it's fantastic". "I was just really a normal guy growing up in Basel, hoping to make a career on the tennis tour".

Roger Federer has been to plenty of Wimbledon Champions' Dinners, the traditional dinner at the end of the grass court Grand Slam which all the winners and esteemed guests attend. Current policy is that a player must be retired for five years, but only Federer knows when that day will dawn.
