2003-2017: Federer's record eight Wimbledon titles

Watch all eight of Roger Federer's Wimbledon winning moments - spanning from 2003 through to 2017.

Through the years - Federer's eight Wimbledon titles

Until next time...

The final announcement is made on Centre Court: "Ladies and gentlemen, that brings us to the end of the championships."

And with that, it brings us to the end of our live text coverage... but go on, just one more treat, let's have a look back at those eight Wimbledon titles for Roger Federer.

If you watch these over and over again it might just give you your SW19 fix until next summer.

We'll catch you then...

'There will be a void when Roger retires'

Boris Becker

Three-time Wimbledon champion on BBC TV

Ultimately, the only person who can stop Federer is himself. He will know when it is time to do something else.

I hope he continues for a couple more years, because tennis needs him – he is the number one ambassador for our sport and there isn’t anything more fascinating than him playing some of the younger guys coming through.

But he will have to retire at some point, and when it happens of course there is going to be a void.

But the longer Federer plays for, it gives the younger generation more time to adjust and to get better and eventually someone will be ready to take over that mantle.

There was a void after Pete Sampras before he arrived, and in tennis you never know where the next superstar is going to appear from.

Who can stop Roger from making it nine Wimbledon titles next year?

Boris Becker

Three-time Wimbledon champion on BBC TV

Grass is a bit more complicated because it is difficult to play on and you can’t really practice on it through the year.

The rest of the year, I find the new generation of players really knocking on the door hard – Alexander Zverev, Nick Kyrgios, Dominic Thiem and a couple of Russians I have seen around who are all really really good too.

The difference, the margin, between them gets closer and closer – even Milos Raonic, who is 26 – that is not old either. Milos is having a difficult year but he has the ability with his serve to play really well at Wimbledon.

But I think Roger is really pushing the boundaries for how long and how much can you play on into your 30s and I think it is really a wake-up call for Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic that there is life after 30.

'Two Slams this year? I'd have laughed'

Federer 6-3 6-1 6-4 Cilic

Roger Federer has won five titles this year - including two Slams - which is more than any other man. And he missed the entire clay-court season...

"Honestly I'm incredibly surprised how well this year is going, how well I'm feeling, as well, how things are turning out to be on the courts, how I'm managing tougher situations, where my level of play is on a daily basis. I am surprised that it's this good," she said.

"I knew I could do great again maybe one day, but not at this level. So I guess you would have laughed, too, if I told you I was going to win two slams this year. "

'I was glad my Briton won' - Hingis

Wimbledon mixed doubles title winner Martina Hingis speaking to BBC Sport: "I'm really happy how we played and performed. One Briton was going to win a Wimbledon title this year and I was hoping it would be mine.

Will they return next year?

"We have the next Grand Slam coming up and we have to talk about that."

It's great to have the trophy again - Murray

Murray/Hingis 6-4 6-4 Kontinen/Watson

One half of the winning Wimbledon mixed doubles pair, Jamie Murray: "It was a bit strange, the crowd was a bit split with Heather and I, but it was a great success for British tennis to have two guys in the final.

"We've had a great week, played some great tennis and we knew we'd have to have a good match in the final to win."

On joining Martina Hingis: "I forgot what it felt like the last time I won! This was pretty sweet and I have to give huge thanks to Martina - when she text me it was an easy decision and it's great to have the trophy again.

"A lot of guys in the locker room would be jumping at the chance to join Martina!"

Federer 6-3 6-1 6-4 Cilic

Roger Federer on what winning a record eighth Wimbledon means to him: "Wimbledon was always my favourite tournament, will always be my favourite tournament.

"My heroes walked the grounds here and walked the courts here. Because of them, I think I became a better player, too.

"To mark history here at Wimbledon really means a lot to me just because of all of that really. It's that simple."

'I want to defend my title next year'

Federer 6-3 6-1 6-4 Cilic

Roger Federer might be knocking on in tennis terms but he's got no intention of hanging up his racquet yet.

"I do think probably like a year ahead of time, you know, with my schedule, fitness schedule, tournaments I would like to play. So I totally see myself playing here this time next year," he says.

"But because it's far away, because of what happened last year, I just like to take the opportunity to thank the people in the very moment, and make them understand, yes, I hope that I'm back. There's never a guarantee, especially not at 35, 36."But the goal is definitely to be here again next year to try and defend."

Murray/Hingis 6-4 6-4 Kontinen/Watson

That was all wrapped up in an hour and 11 minutes by Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis, they take the mixed doubles title, and a handy £100,000 cheque to boot....

Murray/Hingis 6-4 6-4 Kontinen/Watson

There are plenty of fans still on Centre Court, and Heather Watson gets a great reception when she joins Henri Kontinen to collect the runners-up trophy.

Those cheers are just edged by the ones that greet the winners... another year, another Murray lifting some silverware, and another Grand Slam title for Martina Hingis - that's 23 across singles and doubles competitions for the Swiss!

Murray/Hingis 6-4 6-4 Kontinen/Watson

So... it's a decade since Jamie Murray won the mixed doubles, and two decades since Martina Hingis won the singles title - not a bad way to celebrate those anniversaries!

Remember these...? Another one for the trophy cabinet.

Murray/Hingis 6-4 6-4 Kontinen/Watson

Well, it was a good effort from Heather Watson and Henri Kontinen, they pushed Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis all the way in the final service game, but it was Watson's return that caught the top of the net from a powerful Murray serve to give the Scottish-pair the victory.

BreakingGame, set and match

Murray/Hingis 6-4 6-4 Kontinen/Watson

That's it! That's the championship for Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis - barely two weeks since they decided to pair up for the tournament, they are Wimbledon mixed doubles champions!

Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis

Murray/Hingis 6-4 5-4 Kontinen/Watson*

Martina Hingis is talking to Jamie Murray between every point. She knows it's a huge chance to finish this title off...

The crowd cheers as Heather Watson goes for a smash, but that's wide! We're at match point...

Murray/Hingis 6-4 5-4 Kontinen/Watson*

Deuce. Jamie Murray pulls it back with a powerful pair of left-handed serves... but that's advantage Kontinen/Watson as the Finn whips a forehand beyond Martina Hingis' reach.

Murray/Hingis 6-4 5-4 Kontinen/Watson*

A delicate exchange in the service boxes between Heather Watson and Martina Hingis. The Swiss comes out on top, back to 15-30, but then Watson sends Murray chasing with a wonderful backhand return and it's two break point chances...

Murray/Hingis 6-4 5-4 Kontinen/Watson*

Wonderful, curling forehand from Heather Watson clips the line wide out and it's 0-30!

John Inverdale

BBC Sport commentator

Two weeks ago there were hundreds of players here who have given us the most amazing soap opera but in one more game's time, that could be it, and Wimbledon 2017 will be just a memory and we'll have to wait another 50 weeks to do it again.

Will this be the last game on Centre Court this year?

Murray/Hingis 6-4 5-4 Kontinen/Watson*

It's Jamie Murray tasked with serving for the championship...

Cheers ring out around Centre Court, Henri Kontinen says 'no thanks' and makes it 0-15 with a powerful backhand.

*Murray/Hingis 6-4 5-4 Kontinen/Watson

That was excruciating. Heather Watson looked destined to reach that Jamie Murray cross-court return, but it sails agonisingly beyond the tip of her racquet.

The big-serving Henri Kontinen brings it back, though, and they're still in it.

'You can't aim for eight Wimbledon titles'

Federer 6-3 6-1 6-4 Cilic

2 July, 2001. At the time it was a shock. Now we see it as a 'changing of the guards' moment.

Some teenage Swiss prodigy called Roger Federer beat seven-time champion Pete Sampras in the fourth round of Wimbledon.

"I didn't think I would be this successful after beating Pete here," says the now 35-year-old Federer.

"Winning eight titles is not something you can aim for. If you do you must have so much talent.

"Ii was just a normal guy growing up in Basel and hoping to make a career on tennis tour.

"I put in a lot of work and it paid off."

Paid off big time.

Murray/Hingis 6-4 5-3 Kontinen/Watson*

Henri Kontinen slaps the hand of Heather Watson. A morale-boosting low-five?

Watson slings a return back with some venom from the Martina Hingis serve, but Jamie Murray is there again, sliding across the net to split the defending champions.

Hingis serves for the game... and they are one game away from the title.

Jamie Murray

Murray/Hingis 6-4 4-3 Kontinen/Watson*

It's the break!

A shriek from Heather Watson as Jamie Murray's delicate slice sends the Brit scuttling towards the net and Watson realises her return isn't making it over the net.

It's Murray and Martina Hingis who have the upper hand in this one now.

*Murray/Hingis 6-4 3-3 Kontinen/Watson

Oooo. A return from Martina Hingis catches the net and slightly throws Heather Watson off rhythm, she does get it back, but finds a leaping Jamie Murray in the way, star-fishing like Peter Schmeichel in his prime.

That's some smart tennis from the Hingis-Murray combination... two break points.

Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis

*Murray/Hingis 6-4 3-3 Kontinen/Watson

Well, this must be the longest game we've seen so far the in the match, and it could prove pivotal.

Jamie Murray lashes his way back to deuce and another mammoth swing from the Scot gives he and Martina Hingis the advantage.

Can they close out? Heather Watson has other ideas... but there's nothing she can do about that Murray ace. Zing. Straight down the middle, and a vital hold.

Federer 6-3 6-1 6-4 Cilic

Roger Federer arrives in the main interview room to a standing ovation. Wearing a tee-shirt emblazoned with 'Ro8er'. Love it. Available in an online sports shop soon.

Murray/Hingis 6-4 2-3 Kontinen/Watson*

Heather Watson likes that! She leaps away in delight after a smart volley out wide evades the reach of Jamie Murray and brings up the chance of a break point...

The Scot then sends Watson even further wide with a huge first serve, but it's another break point chance as Kontinen powers back with interest.

Marin Cilic walks out of the main interview room at Wimbledon to a round of applause, the Croat looking humbled as he thanks the assembled media for their well wishes.

Top man. Next up... you know who!

'One of the biggest ambassadors of tennis'

Federer 6-3 6-1 6-4 Cilic

Marin Cilic, as you would expect from such a nice bloke, has been speaking glowingly of Roger Federer: "I think his ability and his desire to continue to improve is definitely one of the best in the game.

"Even at the age that he is at now, he's still improving, still challenging himself to get better and better. All credit to him and his team that they find ways to get him better and to another level."He had an unbelievable journey until the final, also winning Halle and getting to the finals without dropping a set, and today also played a great match."Really a great gentleman, extremely one of the biggest ambassadors of tennis."

Through the years - Federer's eight Wimbledon titles

Murray/Hingis 6-4 2-3 Kontinen/Watson*

Jamie Murray adjusts his cap, tosses a ball into the air and then changes his mind. A breeze on Centre Court? Maybe, but then doesn't stop the left-armer flinging a serve down the middle that Henri Kontinen just about returns.

Martina Hingis follows Murray to the back of the court. Instructions? Same again, it seems. Another big Murray serve makes it 40-15.

He's managed to neutralise the power of Henri Kontinen so far in this service game, but a couple of cracking returns from Kontinen and then his partner Heather Watson brings this back to deuce.

Cilic 'extremely happy' despite defeat

Federer 6-3 6-1 6-4 Cilic

Despite a chastening defeat by Roger Federer, Marin Cilic is taking positives from an excellent grass-court season.

"My level was on a position where it hasn't been before on grass, so I'm extremely satisfied with that. Extremely happy. This will give me much more confidence, much more strength for the rest of the year."I know that my level can even go higher, so that is something that I'm looking forward to. That's something which is definitely making me more happy."With that loss today, obviously it's a sad one, it's a devastating one, but I'm still very proud and thankful for all my team that was helping me to get here."

*Murray/Hingis 6-4 2-3 Kontinen/Watson

Henri Kontinen fires down second serves with just as much ferocity as his first.

No nonsense from the Finn. He powers through that service game to edge the defending champions in front in the second set.

Emotional Cilic 'couldn't give best'

Federer 6-3 6-1 6-4 Cilic

Marin Cilic broke down in tears during his straight-set defeat by Roger Federer. The Croat seventh seed has been explaining why:

"It was just a feeling that I knew that I cannot give my best on the court, that I cannot give my best game and my best tennis, especially at this stage of my career, at such a big match."It was very, very difficult to deal with it. You know, that was the only thing.

"But otherwise, you know, it didn't hurt so much that it was putting me in tears. It was just that feeling that I wasn't able to give the best."

Getty Images

Murray/Hingis 6-4 2-2 Kontinen/Watson*

Jamie Murray reaches out a long left arm as Henri Kontinen looks to tickle a forehand down the tramlines, but that's more frame than strings for the Scot and he can only coax it back into the net.

Kontinen then winds up a big one-handed backhand, but the Finn gets his angles all wrong. Too much top and it's nestled in the bottom of the net.

Martina Hingis double faults, and then drags a Heather Watson return wide. That's deuce, but Hingis shows all her experience to hold.

'It was tough emotionally'

Federer 6-3 6-1 6-4 Cilic

Beaten finalist Marin CIlic on why he struggled against Roger Federer: "Well, it was definitely one of the unfortunate days for me to happen. I got a really bad blister. Fluid just came down under my callous in the foot.

"Every time I had to do a reaction fast, fast change of movement, I was unable to do that."Obviously was very tough emotionally because I know how much I went through last few months in preparation with everything.

"I just felt it was really bad luck."
