Home favourite Andy Murray won his second Wimbledon title beating Canadian Milos Raonic 6-4, 7-6(3), 7-6(2) in a shade under 3 hours on Sunday at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. The first Canadian man to ever appear in a Grand Slam singles final, Raonic came up short against the Scottish superstar in a match that witnessed just the one break of serve.

Murray has been for long the less accomplished member of the so called Big Four who have all won the Career Grand Slam and at least a dozen slams each. But this was the first time he was under the pressure of being the favourite in a Grand Slam final and not facing a player other than Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer.

Denis Shapovalov on Sunday became just the third Canadian in history to clinch a junior Slam singles title, winning the Wimbledon title in an entertaining final.

With his 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 triumph over Australian Alex De Minaur in the boys’ final, No. 5-seeded Shapovalov joined Eugenie Bouchard (2012 Wimbledon) and Filip Peliwo (2012 Wimbledon and 2012 US Open) as Canadian singles winners at junior Slams. The victory marked his 12th in a row as he entered the event fresh off a title at a big pre-Wimbledon junior tournament in Roehampton. It is his second junior Grand Slam title as he and fellow Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime (Montreal) clinched the Junior US Open doubles trophy last September.

Serena Williams won a historic 22nd Grand Slam title beating Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3 in the Wimbledon final on Saturday.

It was a big relief for the American as she had lost three high profile matches over the last year when trying to match Steffi Graf who holds the most number of Grand Slam titles in the Open Era. Margaret Court holds the overall record with 24 singles titles.

Roberta Vinci had thwarted Williams' attempt at the calendar year Grand Slam at the 2015 US Open, Kerber had won at Melbourne while Garbine Muguruza had beaten her at Paris.

Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer, who crashed out of Wimbledon on Friday losing a tough five setter to Milos Raonic, has said he has no plans just yet of retiring. It was the first time Federer had lost in a Wimbledon semi-final and after the 3-6, 7-6, 6-4, 5-7, 3-6 defeat, the 34-year-old saluted all four corners of Centre Court on Friday, prompting speculation that he might be hanging up his boots.

"To be very clear for you, I hope to be back on Centre Court," Federer was quoted as saying by the BBC on Friday. "It was a thank you for the crowd. That's what I was going through, not thinking that this might be my last Wimbledon."
