WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Nobody can stop Roger Federer on grass.

No. 1 got even against No. 2 as Federer ended a five-match losing streak to Rafael Nadal on Sunday, winning 6-0, 7-6 (5), 6-7 (2), 6-3 to earn his fourth straight Wimbledon title and eighth Grand Slam championship.

god dammit i wanted Nadal to win....i just dont think Nadal was ready for grass..he only played 5 comp on grass but he is a man for the future if he can get this far on first grass grand slam (not sure bout that ) i dont think Federer will reign in the future...though atm its his time

THough the victory was quite convincing....also im surpirsed i didnt see Nadal get like a second place plate thing.. dont runners-up get anything in Wimbeldon?

This years Wimbledon seems to have passed really quickly, I live in Wimbledon so it's pretty fun when it starts and you get all the other side events going on and loads of new people around, but I guess it was overshadowed by the World Cup this time.

He did get the plate, he didn't carry it around all the time, but he got one.

Hopefully Federer does win it all in the future. I don't know why, I just have a feeling that he isn't trying to develop his abilities more, but if he were to do so, he'd crush anyone (including Nadal)... he just seems relatively satisfied as is. I know Federer is great right now, but he can be better

Nadal owns him on any other surface its just a matter of time until Nadal masters the grass :D

My guess is that by the time Nadal masters the grass, Federer masters the clay. Right now I think it's purely mental for Federer against Nadal, even he admitted it. When he's playing Nadal, he's just not thinking straight

What a surprise!! Federer wins again! Congrats to him though. I watched parts of it because it was on at the same time as the World Cup. Wasn't too much of an interesting game. I thought Nadal would do better, especially in the first set.

I have not really watched much of Wimbledon this year, due to the World Cup being on at like the same time (they should of changed the dates). But I did watch the final and it was quite a good game, Federer battered Nadal in the first set, but then Nadal started to play better and get more confidence. In the end I am glad Federer won, and I hope he wins next year's title as well to get his fifth title in a row. Nadal is undoubtably going to be a class player in the future though.

Roger Federer v Rafael Nadal for many years to come :yes:.

The 3rd set really showed what Nadal was made of, and as this was my first time watching him play a serious opponent, I'm impressed by the level of maturity and the ability he has.

That's it!

Federer rules in Grass!

Nadal rules in Clay!

C'mon man a 6-0 first set win!!! Nadal did fight back though. Took the game to two consecutive tie breakers. But in the end FedEx took his fourth consecutive Wimbledon title.
