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.
Cilic explains the tears on court weren't because he could not handle the pain but because he was so disappointed he could not give his best
