Legendary tennis player Roger Federer created history yesterday as he won his record eighth Wimbledon. In the match against Croatian player Marin Cilic in London, Federer also claimed his 19th Grand Slam title 6-3, 6-1, 6-4. At the age 35, he is Wimbledon’s oldest men’s winner.
This was a highly memorable episode and as expected, Bollywood celebrities came on microblogging website Twitter to congratulate the Swiss player on his historic victory. Deepika Padukone, Dhanush, Irrfan and many others posted their lovely wishes, with Amitabh Bachchan retweeting an image posted by a fan, showing Big B and Deepika dancing with Federer.
