Rain stops play - but not Federer

Despite the weather interruptions, Roger Federer marches into the record books.

    A nation’s hopes may have been riding on Andy Murray’s shoulders, but it was the rain which held centre stage at Wimbledon’s Centre Court for a brief, but perhaps significant, period on Sunday.

    The rain began to at 1614 GMT with the match poised at one set all. Play was held up for 35 minutes before the retractable roof was closed and play was resumed.

    The break certainly seemed to have worked in Federer’s favour as he went on to win the next two sets.

    So whilst Federer celebrated a record-equalling seventh Wimbledon title, Britain’s wait for a home-grown champion extends into a 77th year.
