Swiss tennis player Roger Federer for the eighth time in his career won Wimbledon, becoming the record holder of all time. There is a reason for joy after oldest of all the tennis competitions and the Russian fans: Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina were victorious in doubles.

A rational approach

Represented you imagine Roger Federer eighth, a record victory at Wimbledon is so, almost everyday – not one given to Seth during the tournament, the advantage of the category of «one-sided» in the final match with Croatian Marin Cilic (6:3, 6:1, 6:4)? Unlikely. Judging by the words of the Swiss, he doubted that, in principle, ever reach such heights after years ago lost in the semifinals of the Wimbledon tournament, canadian Milos Raonic and finished the season on the equator because of a knee injury.

«It’s amazing that I made it. But I always believed and dreamed I would be able to return. And standing here now in grade eight-time champion. It’s fantastic. But if you believe in yourself, you can really achieve a lot in life,» said Federer at the ceremony, five years after his last Wimbledon victory.

Oddly enough, it was defeated a year ago from Raonic, very likely to extend for at least another year era of the greatness of Federer. Realizing that in 35 years it is difficult to chase two hares at once, Roger chose for himself the most valuable – the title of the main tournaments of the season. And decided to focus on training exclusively to them coming to Wimbledon just six contests.

However, for Williams, the eldest and the finals was a feat, considering the conditions in which was her preparation for the tournament. June 9 in Florida, the American tennis player had an accident in which a man died. And although in early July the authorities announced the absence of fault Williams for the incident, you can imagine how nervous tension Venus experienced all last week.

Muguruza, defeating the rival with the score 7:5, 6:0, won his second title of champion of Grand slam tournament in his career – after «Roland Garros» last year. On the one hand, indicates the high potential of the Spanish tennis player who in 2016 has risen to second place world ranking. But at the same time, many experts are confused by its instability. According to preliminary data, in addition to those two victories, he won only two titles on the WTA tour – Wimbledon-2017 started 15-th racket of the world.

However, in the course of the tournament the Spaniard has beaten the first racket of the world German Angelica Kerber, which on Monday will concede top spot in the classification of the Czech Carolina Pliskova, and in the quarterfinal was stopped by Russian tennis player Svetlana Kuznetsova.

None of the other Russian players on the second round to go at Wimbledon-2017 failed. But in men’s singles, the Russians won several victories. First distinguished Daniil Medvedev in the first round by beating fifth-seeded Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka. However, then 21-year-old tennis player «distinguished» on the other hand, losing in the second round of the Belgian Ruben Bemelmans, began to throw coins under the feet of the judge, the actions of which he was very unhappy. For that and for other offences Medvedev was fined 14 thousand dollars.

The best of the Russians in the men’s singles was Karen Khachanov. 34th in the world ranking and the first racket of Russia reached the third round where he lost to Rafael Nadal – a completely hopeless fight. «Khachanov is a unique guy who caught the spirit, said about the game of the first racket of Russia honored coach of the country Vladimir Kamelzon. He plays at a level that can reduce the backlog of Russian tennis. This is the purposeful person, it is now all coming to mind. I think he will succeed, and in international it will move forward.»

Double «barabanki» in addition

The Russian triumph at Wimbledon was the victory in the women’s doubles Elena Vesnina and Ekaterina Makarova. Yes, doubles tennis has historically been in the shadow of the single player, but Wimbledon Champions in this discipline likewise receive congratulations from members of the British Royal family. With Vesnina, Makarova has achieved such bragging rights for the first time in his career. Especially noteworthy is the fact that in the final they defeated their opponents, Romanian Monica Niculescu, and a representative of Taiwan Zhang Hoazin, with a score of 6:0, 6:0 – that is, speaking the tennis language, hanging double «wheel».

«It’s great that Lena and Katya so phenomenally won Wimbledon, — said the Agency «R-Sport» famous former tennis player Andrei Chesnokov. — It was evident that they had gathered a good form and every match played better and better. In the finals they just demolished the opponents. They have this day obtained everything, they attacked in the free space on the court. And as soon as the opponent ran to intercept the ball, they are free to trace them on line. The girls were incredible on the front foot and played just phenomenal».

However, the sensation of victory Makarova and Vesnina at Wimbledon was not. They were seeded in the tournament for the second number, and has previously achieved in a pair of high-profile successes – and won the «Roland Garros», and at the U.S. Open, and last year won gold at the Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro.

In the men’s doubles winners Wimbledon after a marathon final fury steel pole Lukasz Kubot and Brazilian Marcelo Melo. In the mixed doubles championship title was won by the Swiss Martina Hingis and Briton Jamie Murray. In the Junior singles was won by American Claire Liu and Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina.
