Remembering When Roger Federer Got Absolutely Trousered After Winning Wimbledon
With a 20th Grand Slam under his belt, following victory in the Australian Open final against Marin Cilic, today, why don't we take a trip down memory lane and remind ourselves of the details of the Swiss Superman's wild celebrations after bagging his 19th Grand Slam, at Wimbledon, last year.
The 36-year-old eased his way past Cilic (who must be sick of the sight of Federer, by now) in straight sets as he clinched his second grand slam of the year following his heroics at the 2017 Australia Open.
He recorded his eighth Wimbledon title after victories in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2012.
As a result, Federer surpassed American legend Pete Sampras in becoming the most successful open era male player on grass.
After writing himself in the record books and securing his 19th major career title, it was only fitting Federer celebrated in style.

"My head is ringing," Federer confessed in the press conference. "I don't know what I did last night. I drank too many different types of drinks I guess. But after the ball we went to a bar and there was about 30 or 40 friends there."

"We had a great time. I got to bed at 5 and I woke up and I didn't feel good. The last hour I have finally felt somewhat OK again. But we had a good time," he added.
Federer may be an immortal once he steps onto the court, but he's just like us and can suffer from a brutal hangover.
