Roger Federer: 
"Today was unique because of playing Andy. Obviously, being able to play or finish a match under the roof, I don't think that's ever been done before here for a final. So that's been different, as well. I'm happy I got a victory today, but obviously it was very, very special."
On what enabled him to win the title: "This year, I guess, I decided in the bigger matches, to take it more to my opponent instead of waiting a bit more for the mistakes. This is, I guess, how you want to win Wimbledon, by going after your shots, believing you can do it, and that's what I was able to do today. It's special. This one hasn't quite sunk in yet for some reason. I guess I was trying to be so focused in the moment itself that when it all happened I was just so happy that it was all over and that the pressure was gone basically."
On his twin daughters seeing him win the trophy: "The victory today is a dream come true today for me and my family, seeing them there. Yeah, it's big. People forget sometimes I do have twin girls. That has had a massive impact on my life. I think it's helped my game more than anything because I think I'm playing some of the best tennis of my life right now, and since a long time now. But just to be able to juggle everything together has been a challenge. And I think you learn from mistakes. You try to make it work for everyone involved. It hasn't always been easy. I admit that."

Andy Murray: 
 “I thought I played a pretty good match. [There was] a lot of close shots, a lot of close games, a lot of break points here and there. He played very, very well the last two sets especially. When the roof closed, he played unbelievable tennis."

On his performance in the final: "I'd say that's the best I've played in a slam final. It wasn't like I gave away bad games or stupid games and stuff. I played a good match. I made pretty good decisions for the most part, so I'm happy with that. I felt more comfortable this morning and before the match than I had done maybe in the previous slams."

On the pressure of playing at home: "It's not an easy tournament for British players in many ways, but I think I dealt with all of the extra things away from the tournament pretty well, better than maybe I had done in the past. It was my first time in a Wimbledon final. I'd never been there before. I played three semis beforehand. So I'm still improving, still playing better tennis, trying to improve, which is all I can do."
