What Pro Athletes Are Saying About Roger Federer’s Eighth Wimbledon Win

Social media erupts with well-wishes for the tennis star on his incredible 19th Grand Slam title.

In a Wimbledon marred by early exits and injuries—not to mention a historically old field (at least in tennis years)—the seemingly ageless Roger Federer once again proved unbeatable, notching his record eighth Wimbledon victory and unreal 19th Grand Slam title.

With Prince William and Kate Middleton among the onlookers, the 35-year-old Federer beat Croatian Marin Cilic in straight sets.

Following the big win, Twitter lit up with congratulatory tweets from some pro athletes (Kobe Bryant, Andy Roddick)—including an extra “sweet” tweet from the man himself (see directly below).
