Roger Federer and Garbine Muguruza celebrate Wimbledon 2017 triumphs at glitzy Champions’ Dinner

Roger Federer and Garbine Muguruza celebrated their Wimbledon successes at the glitzy Champions’ Dinner ceremony.

Federer secured his eighth Wimbledon title on Sunday with a routine victory over Marin Cilic on Centre Court.

It came 24 hours after Muguruza’s win over Venus Williams and the pair were the stars of the show on Sunday evening at the Guildhall.

Muguruza was among the first to arrive and looked stunning in a white dress alongside her coach Conchita Martinez.

Federer was in attendance with his wife Mirka, just hours after his victory over Cilic.

Traditionally, the men’s and ladies’ singles champions celebrated their victories by dancing together.

But a spokeswoman for the All England Club said there was no dance floor at the venue, and that part of the evening was discontinued in the 1970s. That might not stop the 2017 winners though.

On Sunday night Spain’s Muguruza tweeted “@rogerfederer are you ready to dance? #ChampionsDinner”.

The Swiss star replied: “Bring it on champ”, as well as posting a selfie of himself on the way to the dinner, dressed in a suit and tie.

Jamie Murray also took to the red carpet alongside his wife Alejandra Gutierrez, with Heather Watson also in attendance.

Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina, who took the doubles trophy, also looked glamorous on the red carpet.

Federer was earlier presented with an exclusive commemorative “8” Wilson tennis racket.

After his victory, Federer admitted he could keep playing until he is 40, claiming he is playing the best tennis of his career.

Federer, who turns 36 next month, said: “It is magical. I think I have

maybe played the best tennis ever. It is disbelief that I have achieved such heights.”

The new world No.3 did not play last season after Wimbledon because of a troublesome knee before returning to win in Melbourne in January. “I’ve got to take more time off!” he said. “Is it possible I could be still playing here when I am 40?

“You would think so, health permitting, and everything is okay. You could take 300 days off beforehand, just prepare for Wimbledon, put yourself in a freeze box, then you come out and train a bit – you’re not going to be injured.”
