One of the strangest moments in recent Grand Slam finals history took place during Roger Federer straight set victory over Marin Cilic to win his 8th Wimbledon title, 19th Grand Slam.

With Federer up a set and 30 in the second and rolling in the match, Cilic broke down in tears on the changeover. The trainer and doctor were called with Cilic sobbing uncontrollably while being tended to. The medical didn’t treat anything in particular nor was there any visible injury. But there was Cilic, in tears for all the world to see.

Cilic reground and continued, and later received treatment for a left foot blister.

Cilic afterward admitted the tears came from the frustration of not being 100% for the final.

Oh my God you are not a baby!


Danica Says:

I am surprised that anyone could even think that Cilic’s tears were anything but the tears of frustration. He didn’t cry because of Federer. He cried because it was the biggest final of his career, another great chance to win a GS trophy, but alas, he was unable to perform to his full potential due to blisters. I read the inteview with his father. He said Marin complained about blisters on Saturday but hoped he could play well. Obviously, he was hampered.


Margot Says:

Just shows what a horribly lonely place a tennis court can be, especially in the final of a Grand slam. Certainly Rog and Andy have shed tears and Rafa and Nole too, nothing wrong with that, unless you like in some weird time warp where “real men” can’t show their feelings. Jeez, please!


Willow Says:

Exactly Margot ….


Danica Says:

Second that.
