Roger Federer has pulled out of the Rio Olympics and will
miss the rest of the season, including the US Open, because
he needs "more extensive rehabilitation" to prolong his
career after knee surgery earlier this year.
Britain's Andy Murray put the finishing touch to an almost
faultless fortnight to claim a second Wimbledon title with a
6-4 7-6(3) 7-6(2) defeat of big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic
in the Centre Court sunshine at Wimbledon.
It was third time lucky for American Serena Williams as she
finally matched Steffi Graf's professional era record of 22
grand slam singles titles by beating Angelique Kerber to
claim a seventh Wimbledon crown.
Canadian Milos Raonic won't be the only man experiencing
something new on Wimbledon's Centre Court on Sunday - for the
first time Britain's Andy Murray will start a grand slam
final as favourite after crushing Tomas Berdych in the semis.
Germany's Angelique Kerber said she felt confident about
facing Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final after beating
the world No 1 in Australia earlier this year, and warned:
I'm even more dangerous on grass.
