Such a joy to watch @rogerfederer and @RafaelNadal compete. These guys always produce phenomenal tennis. #Federer too good today. #Nadal might be disappointed with his performance but he didn't loose that match. Roger won it. #Wimbledon

And as a tennis fan, I couldn't be more satisfied after watching that!
Very rare that matches truly live up to the hype, but then again, this is Roger and Rafa we are talking about!
Thank you very much! https://t.co/jLi7BbyUMr

That Federer/Nadal match was better drama than Line of Duty, Bodyguard and Luther combined. We’re so lucky we get to watch those two slug it out

And, as always, a classy response from our champ:
Amazing match well deserved win by @rogerfederer I had some chances but… Roger played better. Good luck for the final @Wimbledon 2019. Thanks all for the support. Always fantastic to be here. See you next year! 😘
