Roger Federer's straightforward win over Marin Cilic in the final of the men's section on Centre Court brought two weeks of incredible tennis to an end (Although there was a mixed doubles match after the showpiece final).  

These past two weeks saw players toiling on the grass of London, giving their blood, sweat and in some cases, tears, to continue progressing in the tournament.
