Andy Murray cruises past Raonic to win 2nd Wimbledon title

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.

Shapovalov wins Wimbledon Boys' Championship

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 wins Wimbledon, and a record 22nd Grand Slam title

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.

Federer: "I hope to be back on Centre Court"

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."

Federer dismisses retirement talk after Raonic defeat

Milos Raonic fulfilled a long time dream on Friday as he reached his first Grand Slam final after beating seven-time champion Roger Federer 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 in three hours and 25 minutes at Wimbeldon. In a virtuoso display of serving, Raonic had the veteran struggling for timing on his returns and lost serve only once in 27 service games.

Raonic had lost at the same stage to Federer in 2014 but this year has looked a man on a mission after starting 2016 with a fine showing in Australia reaching the semifinals at Melbourne after winning the title at Brisbane.

Paes - Hingis crash out of Wimbledon Mixed Doubles

A bad day for Indians at Wimbledon worsened as the last remaining Indian hope Leander Paes and his partner Martina Hingis, the defending champions, crashed out in the third round of the mixed doubles event to home player Heather Watson and Finland's Henri Kontinen 6-3, 3-6, 2-6 in an hour and 31 minutes.

After facing an early breakpoint, the Indo-Swiss pairing rushed to a 4-1 lead and then were pegged back to 4-3 but Hingis produced a glorious return winner to break Watson's serve. Paes then held serve authoritatively to close out the opening set 6-3.
