Wimbledon: The Last Day

Nightshift Sports:

The 2017 Wimbledon Championships are over. The tournament’s featured match on Day 13, the last day of the tournament, was the Men’s Singles Championship between Marin Cilic and Roger Federer. Federer won, in straight sets, as Cilic had a very difficult afternoon both physically and emotionally after the first set. It was Federer’s eighth Wimbledon singles title.

Review the entire tournament and get all the scores and results from various finals by using our direct link to the official Wimbledon website.

The 2017 tournament was full of drama and surprises, wrapped in a package of tradition and respect that is missing in so many other sports today.

It was a good one. Hope you enjoyed it all (and yes, lots of reruns on the 2017 Wimbledon tournament will be available on The Tennis Channel).

Wimbledon: Day 12 Results, Day 13 Schedule

Nightshift Sports: 

It’s almost over: the biggest fortnight in tennis, the Championships Wimbledon. Earlier today the Women’s Singles Championship was decided, when Garbine Muguruza took out Venus Williams rather improbable run for another Wimbledon title, 7-5, 6-0. Muguruza lost two years ago in the Wimbledon final to Serena Williams, so this was a very sweet win and, perhaps, it signaled a serious changing of the guard in women’s tennis, as a new group of young players take their place at the front of the sport.

Get all the results from all the matches at the Big W, inside news, a preview of tomorrow’s men’s singles match between Cilic and Federer, as well as television/streaming schedules/channels by using our direct link to the official Wimbledon Web Site.
