Roger Federer admits he felt hungover after his Wimbledon win
“My head's ringing,” he admitted.
“I don't know what I did last night. I drank too many types of drinks, I guess. After the Champions’ Ball we went to – what would you call it? I guess it's a bar – and there were almost 30 to 40 friends that were there. So we had a great time.
“I got to bed at five, then woke up, and just didn't feel good. The last hour or so I'm somewhat OK again. So I'm happy with that. We had a good time.”
Federer was celebrating becoming the first player for 41 years to win Wimbledon without dropping a single set and he said that, unless they change their tactics, players will continue to make it too easy for the game’s elite.

“I have played almost every player here that wouldn’t serve and volley, it’s frightening to me, to see this at this level,” he said. “I look at the stats and see that the guy I’m going to face is playing two per cent of serve and volley throughout the Championship.
“So I know he’s not going to serve and volley, which is great, especially when we are talking about grass that was playing fast this week.
“I wish that we would see more players taking chances up at net because good things do happen there and you want to be there. But you have to spend some time up there to feel confident and good there.
“Playing a slugfest with Andy Murray from the baseline or Rafa Nadal for that matter – good luck if you are fifty in the world. It is not so simple to take them out.”
